Revision Angst

I’m having one of those moments.
One of those "this is crap, who are you trying to kid?!" moments.
One of those "what made you think you could pull this off?" moments.
One of those "this isn’t even close to working so you might as well
go fill out an application at Taco Smell" moments.

I hate these moments.
But I know they always pass.
Especially when I read those vile criticisms aloud in R’s voice.

Okay, now I’m smiling again.  
Thanks for listening.

I gotta get back to it.

    • Sorry you’re also experiencing revision angst, Susan. But it does help a lot to know others can relate and that the feelings do pass.
      Hope you’re getting much accomplished!

  1. let me give you an example of what I hear from time to time:
    day 1: this is pretty good. I like it.
    day 2: this sucks. no one is going to like this crap.
    day 3: this isn’t so bad after all. I like it.

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Kelly. It helps knowing we all experience these feelings and that we all come out the other side. It helps to have awesome cheerleaders. πŸ™‚

  3. I suggest cultivating a few good vices. Preferably ones that aren’t too expensive or cause permanent damage to your health. If you lived closer I’d take you out for a beer and act really bratty and you’d feel better!

    • How about vices that cause only temporary damage to my health? I wish I lived closer. Zippy suggested I call you and we’d both drink beer while you were bratty over the phone. Somehow, though, it didn’t feel quite the same.
      Thanks for making me laugh.

  4. Oh it’s so nice when those moments pass…They really are part of the process (know them way too well lately) But I hope you’re well on a good way. No filing applications to fast food places!

    • Thanks for talking me down from the Taco Smell ledge! I went back to work, had some more bad moments but also ended up getting much done. At the end of the night I felt good about all I’d accomplished. Hope you continue to push on through, too.
