The fog is clearing.

When I awoke this morning I had the vaguest feeling that maybe the fog around my head was a little less dense than it’s been for the past ten days or so.  I didn’t really trust the feeling so I rolled over and sorta snoozed for another half hour.  During that half hour, though, something kept nudging me to get up, that today will be better.  Depression is a mysterious, seductive mistress.  Sometimes a fatal attraction.

Fortunately for me the desire to feel better, to be joyous and free, is more powerful in the long haul; and so today I’m up and bathed and dressed and ready to start that sometimes rugged road back to health.  It helps that the sun is shining and that I’m leaving the house early for a date with daughter #1.  Having somewhere to go and someone to talk to helps to ease my transition.

I’m seriously behind with my blog reading.  I’ve missed all of you and I’ll try to start catching up soon.  In the meantime I’ll get outside and enjoy the sunshine, enjoy my daughter’s company, and live this one day–now, today.

I hope you have/are having a good day.

  1. Hi bye2! I’ve missed you. Hope you’re doing well.

    I’m not sure if it was a step back or just temporary sadness. I don’t really miss my ex anymore. I don’t like living alone but for now it’s my reality. It is what it is.

    Take care.

  2. I didnt realize you took a baby step backwards. I’ve missed out on so much and I’m sorry.

    But i’m happy to hear your taking a step forward again. Hopefully from the blue the fog will diappear and reveal a hint of pinkish.

  3. Oh Pat, I’m so behind on my blog reading too, and so sorry to hear your moral has been hovering around your socks… You’re so brave to fight it soldier on. Don’t know if Obama will win his, but I know you will win your battle Pat.
    Big hugs in the meantime xoxo

    • Thank you, Lady E. I’m doing better.

      As to Obama–Given the current slate of candidates who might run against him, if he doesn’t win reelection in November, I will just have to move to Canada, or France? 🙂 I love the mountains.

  5. I’m glad you are feeling better, and hope it continues. Perhaps the upcoming spring will make all the difference. IThe irony of your post is that just before dawn this morning it was foggy as everything at my place. That extra half-hour really did get you through the fog.
