Curvy Lady has returned today to guest blog. Here’s what she had to say on her prompt “season” and “joy”.
Season and Joy
Nirvana’s Season in the Sun lyrics keep popping into my head when I read these words, except with a few minor lyrical alterations. “We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun… But the swimsuits and the short shorts like the seasons have all gone”. I can’t help but feel a tiny bit of joy trading in the hot sunny days for the unpredictable rainy season although I can’t say a complete goodbye to the short shorts since I live in the Caribbean and it summer practically all year round.
I’ve chosen to be content today (and it’s not just because I’m off from work). I feel like I’m always in pursuit of something. Whether it’s a greater career, finding that box of soft chocolate chip cookies I can’t remember the name of, tightening my gluteus maximus or whatever it is I think I need in or out of my life. It’s great to have goals and aspirations but sometimes you just have to stop for a minute, take a step back, try to forget about that upcoming poolside party (because you get queasy just thinking about swimsuits and short shorts) and just be content. After all, isn’t contentment what most of us consider the ultimate goal?
So today, I’m going to chill at home with my family, watch a good movie and have some not-really-good-for-you food. What will you be doing?
I had a 2 mile walk for diabetes this morning, now I am relaxing with my family. Thank you for hanging out at my place this weekend, Curvy Lady. I enjoyed the company.
Please don’t forget to leave Curvy Lady lots of love. Leave a comment telling us what you are doing this weekend. I hope you are having a good one!!
