Bad day and shattered dreams

Today is our halfway point through the week, which is a good thing. Yesterday my day started early again, at 7:25 AM and I worked until 6:00 PM. My view of the day was negative from the start, and it might have been because I was sleep deprived. We were offered overtime at work, which I am always quick to say “yes” to. Honestly, I was a little discouraged at work because many times when I ask a question, I feel ignored because I do not get any answers. I have been dealing with a few challenging customers at work, which I can normally handle, but one was over the top difficult. I guess what made these customers extra challenging is because I had NO help!

After I finally decided to let go of my work frustrations, I saw an email regarding the ONE thing I have been looking forward to, meeting James Patterson. Sadly☹, the book signing and meeting with James Patterson is sold out. This was one of my dreams, to meet my favorite author and hopefully get a picture with him☹. This was the tip of the ice burg for me today, and I could not help but burst into tears. It is not like James Patterson goes on tour frequently, so this was a once in a lifetime event for me.

Of course, I am glad we are closer to Friday, but now not only do I feel discouraged but have nothing to look forward to. We often look forward to weekends or vacations, but I have not been anywhere fun and or exciting in years. The past few times we left town, the trip was miserable and a waste of time. The reasons for this are also upsetting and an enormous letdown. Life is aggravating enough living in pain 24 hours a day, so what has transpired in the past day was the icing on the cake of disappointments.

Thank you for visiting my site today and I am sorry it was not very positive. Life is hardly ever perfect, but we must have ways to release negative emotions. I know many people will not understand why missing out on meeting an author was so devastating to me, but we all have things that are meaningful to us that no one understands. I guess this is something that makes us unique. I do look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

  1. I’m so sorry you are going to miss out on seeing your favorite author, being an avid reader myself I know how disappointing that must be. I’m sorry work was hard. I hope things get better for you the rest of the week!
