I'm In Charge so Move It

         I've been missing you all. Things have been a bit overwhelming for me lately. Not with my blog or shop or anything like that but with life. I've totally shut down and have went into a depressed mode. It's been taking me on a roller coaster of a ride. So let me just say I'm okay and yes I've been a little sad lately. Last night my best friend called and we talked and talked and talked. Until after one thirty am. You know how sometimes best friends just know that you need to talk? She knew something was going on which made my heart feel a bit of relief. Knowing that she knew I wasn't myself and was concerned just confirmed one of the thousands of reasons why I love her to pieces.

        Sometimes I need someone to snap me back into reality. It is no secret that life hasn't always dealt me the best of circumstances and depression and anxiety are one of those things. I tend to let things get to me and bring me down. I'm a worrier and sometimes yesterday's worries or sadness will carry onto tomorrow and I've ruined a beautiful day. Sometimes that happens for too many days in a row and I need to step back and recognize that I'm part of the problem. That I have to consciously wake up and make an effort to have a great day and that I'm in charge of my own happiness. Tell me what makes you happy without fail?

  1. That's wonderful that you have a best friend who is sensitive and practical. I have lots of tough days. I've written several series on being Thankful on my Christian mom blog at http://happymomshappyhomes.blogspot.com

    I believe a thankful attitude is key to a joy-filled life. Some of the titles are Thankful in Times of Difficulty, Thankful in Times of Sacrifice and Thankful in Times of Need.

    Wishing you a blessed day and lots of sunshine along the way!

  2. Lovely post - so well written :)


  3. Right there with ya! I've found myself with total lack of inspiration to blog-although it does make me feel good. I love your honesty!

  4. Hello....I am the same way. I let things from yesterday or the past creep up and consume me for some time. Its nice to hear that encouraging words and to have that friend that knows when somethings up.


  5. I get this. Sometimes life just makes us sad. Sometimes there is a reason and sometimes it just happens! Glad that you have a best friend who knows and is willing to listen and talk! Such a good thing!

    What makes me happy without a doubt? Hm... if I'm really depressed, that's hard because there have been times where nothing helps, but usually getting out and doing something. My husband is really good at knowing when I'm just not doing well and he will take me out to do something...to have fun. Usually helps! Sometimes a good cry helps too!


Thank You very much for taking the time to comment! I'm happy to have you here while I share life's little and big moments.
