Open Mouth, Insert Foot

So, what do you think? I gave the blog a makeover. I liked the other layout but all the gray was starting to depress me. lol This one is bright and cheers me up a bit. After the week I’ve had, I need some cheering up.

Have you ever said something or done something you regret afterwards? I’m not talking, “Oh I wish I wouldn’t have said that,” and move on…I’m talking, wishing you hadn’t done it to the point it makes you physically ill. Well, that has been my week. Something happened at work this week and I made a wrong decision. I’ve regretted it ever since. I’ve lost sleep over it actually. I get sick to my stomach if I dwell on it too much. I’m not sure what will happen but if the shit hits the fan, so to speak, I’ll have no one to blame but myself. *sigh* It’s been a lesson I won’t forget though. Don’t say anything until you’ve thought about it first.

It’s not so much what I said, but the repercussion of what I said. I think that’s why it makes me sick. One stupid mistake will cause me so much trouble. Like life isn’t hard enough. Worst part is…I did it to myself. Much easier when we can blame our grief on someone/something else.

Nothing I can do about it now but wait for the fallout. I’ll probably be a nervous wreck before all is said and done. As if I wasn’t crazy enough. LOL I’ll just add this to my list of, Stupid Life Lessons.

I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. I’m not the first person to do something monumentally stupid, right?

    h, don’t beat yourself up, most of us have done it, me more often than I care to think about.
    Sometimes bridges are burned because they need to be and sometimes were just human, burned out, p’d off or having other stresses. It’s part of being human, and part of that is saying things we’re sitting an hour later going….what was I thinking!
    Here’s a hug, if that helps. Just take deep breaths and it will pass.
    Like the cheerful blog colors btw
