Well it is that time of the week again, back to work this afternoon after four lovely days off. Okay, one of those days wasn't so great considering I had a bite of the stomach flu :( But hey, I'd rather have it on a day off than on a day I have to work :)
I didn't get everything I wanted to get done accomplished, BUT I did get a good deal completed and I have felt more like my old self so that is a plus all in itself.
We've had rain, bitter cold, ice, snow, and the works over this weekend and beginning of the week. This morning being the coldest and below zero when I awoke. Schools have been delayed all week and getting out in this was not the top of my list, but when I had to I did. I still have one door on my van that is frozen shut :(
My boys, the dogs pictured above, are loving this weather. It's the husky in them for sure. They are constantly wanting out to play in the white stuff covering our yard. When I refuse to let them out because to me its too cold out there, they romp all over my kitchen until I can't stand it anymore or they've bounced off my table so many times my coffee splashes over the edge of my cup. Then I tell them, "Fine, but its cold out there." When I go to bring them in a few minutes later, you'd think it was summer time out there the way they are romping and playing.
I'm still feeling pretty charged up from our meeting Saturday. I love it when that feeling just washes over you and absorbs into your being. The writing energies are flowing and the desire to get back into the right gear is heavy within. I love that feeling of being me again. I'm so thankful I finally broke down and got some help to get back on my feet. It was the best thing I could have done to help myself.
Depression isn't something to play around with, no matter how stubborn you are. Believe me, ask anyone who knows me, stubbornness in this area is one of my strong suits. I hate drugs. I hate anything that will alter the mind, because frankly, my mind is where I make my living. However, sometimes, we need to do what is best for our own mental well-being, and for me, a low dose of anti-depressants have done the trick and I've asked myself numerous times, why did I wait so long.
There are thousands if not millions of reasons people suffer from depression. I encourage anyone who thinks they might be to please seek help. Don't downplay it, for it robs you of your life. I know first hand how much it took from me.
Well time to get ready to go into my day job.
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
