Do you fight, like me, with the feeling that summer didn't really turn out as you wanted, now that it sings on the last verse? Should we sit down for a while and tune in the situation?
Firstly (and I also talk to myself!) - No, things rarely get that you imagine. Sometimes they get very better and sometimes they get much worse (and quite often somewhere in between). You usually say that this is exactly what is life? What we did not plan.
With that said, I know (and you) that it can feel useless anyway. Maybe even without visible reasons? The kids were probably quite happy at least most days, although the weather left more to be desired, it was bathed hell and x number of ice creams you also had with ..Now I'm just chosen but just like this it is. Always, all year round. Some years are better and some worse. Sometimes there are concrete reasons why life was tough for a long period and other times maybe there is nothing to point out. It was hard simply.
Why do we put summer as some kind of parentheses in life? Then it should be lived and seagull! No matter how life has been during the winter and spring, we will suddenly get into some kind of summer garb the day Children's summer vacation starts and like ... "be happy" ..?No, I say (angry to myself, a little late ...) - let's crush it. Summer is just as much life as the rest of the year and sometimes we can change what feels (or how we react to it) and sometimes we probably have to accept the situation. It became as it became - and it's ok. Giant. Are there things you can do to create a fantastic autumn - do it. (But don't be too hard on yourself or life).
