What A Week
And it's not like terrible things have happened this week. In fact, it's been a fairly normal week. What it all really boils down to, is me and my state of mind.
I feel like this wilting flower.
I knew when the word balance pick me, that it was not always going to be easy to keep. But, I. Am. Exhausted. And quite frankly, I think I feel more stressed out now, than before I was trying to keep everything in balance.
On top of the stressed feeling, I have been so melancholy. To my great surprise, that melancholy has even shown up in my art work. I'll share more on that with you next time and I think you will see what I'm talking about.
I'm sure that this feeling is due to Winter and not getting outside very much. But I don't remember it ever being this strong before. I am a naturally happy and upbeat person, so this has been a tough and strange feeling to deal with. I've been trying to shake it for a couple of weeks now and I think I can start feeling it lift some. A chunk of that happened yesterday, while having lunch with a friend... something I haven't done in at least a month.
Thank you, dear friend! (Eventhough I was secretly hoping you would call and cancel before hand, so I could get back into my jammies and brood.) I am feeling very grateful to you right now!
Hopefully things will get back to normal very soon. Have a beautiful weekend!
