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.
