Coming out of a depression is not the easiest thing in the world to do. It wasn’t until last week , a day or two after Christmas, that I felt myself emerge from my internal cave of darkness. I really thought I was going to have to talk to a doctor about my mood. Until I read something that just “clicked” and once I put the words to practice, I felt better. I’m not saying this works for everyone, but it worked for me.
Right now, I’m super tired. I can feel my body fighting off whatever sickness my daughter and my husband have, so my initial chipperness that I felt last week is a little subdued but not because I’m feeling down, so that’s a good thing. I did manage a 20 minute workout on Wednesday and plan to sneak one in today – after a short nap, I think.
Writing-wise, I am simmering. January, as I think I noted in a previous post, is my month to “get situated” for the rest of the year. I’m working on my foods that I can eat and not have a reaction to, I’m figuring out what projects I want to work on and what I can do to get my freelance writing business going as it is at a stand-still right now (my fault). I am also trying to finesse my workout plans and what I hope to accomplish this year. And of course, I am reading, reading, reading as I thoroughly enjoy my new Kindle that my husband got me for Christmas.
I received my Berlitz Swedish in 60 Minutes audio cd yesterday and have been working on that. I plan to set aside time each morning to work on my Svenksa!
I miss the Reverb 10 daily prompts. I miss the focused writing and the daily accountability of it. Our little Reverb 10 community seems so disconnected now and that does sadden me a bit. But I am grateful for those I met online during the month of December and so happy that I now have them as friends.
Here’s hoping your day is a spectacular one and that you are all avoiding whatever sickness is in your neck of the woods.
