Melancholy is the Great Motivator

I was reading in Rolling Stone that Michael J. Fox said, “I’m never going to finish my book about optimism!”
That’s about how I feel right now.
Then, at my day job, I was compiling hire date anniversaries for the calendar and my name popped up for October. I quickly calculated how long I’ve been at the job and almost put my head down on the keyboard and cried.
Then I was at Macy’s getting my mom her birthday present and I saw this really cute Levi’s jean jacket in smooth dark denim and I felt an overwhelming surge of sadness. I think it was because it reminded me of college and buying my first jean jacket.
Or maybe it was because I’m not in college anymore and have moved on to more workplace appropriate things like trenches and peacoats.
Or maybe it means time goes by and I need to hustle my behind and get back to finishing the rewrites.
Dark moment or no.
