Lately I have been feeling like I’ve lost my sparkle. Some days it feels like the world has gone flat.
Everyday I am growing and expanding. My life is improving and I am finding more and more time to do the things that I enjoy.
So why don’t I feel shiny anymore? I used to feel vibrant and full of life. Now, with 2 children and endless demands for my attention, I feel lost in responsibilities.
What makes us sparkle anyway? For me, it is being around people who emanate life. I love vibrant and colourful people who always have fun, no matter what the circumstances.
Now the only people I seem to find are battling their way through supermarket aisles, fighting for car parking spaces or arguing with teachers about the attention their children are getting.
I wonder if I am being too optimistic. Am I trying to find a television or movie moment that doesn’t exist in real life?
I think I sparkled before. I used to feel so free. I loved having spontaneity and going with the flow.
Perhaps I just need o find a better hobby where I can meet other people like me.
That is, if there are people like me.
