I Just Want to Runaway
These last few weeks have been brutal.
Full-on, painful, never-ending, stressful, grinding and exhausting.
I may be slightly exaggerating, but I know I haven’t had much fun lately.
I won’t bore you with all the details – suffice to say there has been lots going on for me at work, a husband MIA due to ongoing HSC commitments, a trip up to the emergency department for Delilah, a mental health day for Gilbert (who has been really struggling lately) and the start of the psychological assessments for Matilda to confirm her Aspergers diagnosis.
The relentlessness of everything has really pushed me to my limits, mentally and physically. I just want to runaway from everything and reclaim my sanity, somewhere other than here…
I have been trying to focus on the positives to get me through. The fact it won’t be this relentless for long, that my husband will one day be free of his commitments to help me out more, that the holidays aren’t that far away now.
One of the other positives is my love of music and I wanted to share one particular song with you today.
The artist is Jamiroquai (my all time favourite band) and the song is aptly called “Runaway”. The lyrics of the chorus particularly echo my own feelings lately:
I just want to runaway
Turn me loose
Got people around running me down I can’t stay
I just want to get away, I just want to get away now.
Get them off my back today
So sit back and enjoy the dance skills of Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay and the funky beats of this song- I know I will!
