It hasn’t probably escaped the few still popping by my blog, that I haven’t been very active lately. The reasons are many, some I feel happy to disclose, others not. Suffice to say, the last few weeks I didn’t feel really brilliant. I slipped into something of a summer depression painting my whole world black. Finding it hard to drag myself out of my doomsday scenarios I would conjure up and perform for the rest of the family like a second rate pantomime, I slipped further into my self created black hole with my family as unwilling spectators.
Blogging took a hit too. I didn’t feel like giving any readers bad vibes which I was likely to give off. Darkness took hold of my thoughts and spiraled out of control until a down to earth conversation from my husband shook me back into the world of the living. I believe there are defining moments, when chance meetings, speeches or in this case a good heart-to-heart, can change the course of life. Perhaps the moment will not disclose the importance, but the benefit of hindsight will.
Later, as I trained in the gym, the epiphany became obvious. With so much good and so much going for me, I had become my worst enemy. There and then decided to change…make a difference for myself and those I love.
As with changes and opportunities, they are worth as much as their deeds – not their words and promises. But as my blog has become somewhat of my barometer for the correlation between promises and actions, I felt I had to record this for myself and the rest of the world. No more sorrows, live for today, because tomorrow is another day into the unknown.
