It's just wrong that it takes me a full Saturday to get over a 5 day work week. It's amazing what stress does to the body and mind. After a long week of work stress and rush hour traffic, all I want to do is stare at the TV. I don't want to dress, think, talk, or make any decisions. Add to this the three evenings spent at the high school for various commitments, and the stress of my son's grades and future, I can barely function come the weekend.
So where in this madness does art and writing fit in? Well, when you don't have any down time, everything else is a chore. How sad is that! Envy is an unhealthy emotion, unnecessary negative energy. Still, it's hard not to envy those who have so much time, those raised with money, who don't have to worry about bills, don't have to work, or can do whatever they want. How little the Kardashian and Jenner kids know of struggle and putting dreams aside for the well being of others. Yet, they are admired for their accomplishments. It's very confusing, what is there to admire about people who were handed everything. It's easy to make cake when all of the ingredients we already there for you.
