I can't believe it's Dec. 1 already. It's been such a tough year, but I guess for me, since my schedule has been wrecked because of Covid, it has gone by pretty fast.
I hope you all are well. What are some things you have struggled with this year? For me, it's been a bit of melancholy. I am not normally a person who has issues with depression, but this year has been so hard, particularly at my job. I have been doing more things to try & relieve the stress. Hang in there! We're in this together.
Missing the hugs of my grandchildren is the worst. Does give way to bouts of melancholy. Now with sunrise happening after 8 a.m. and sunset coming close to 4:30 it's time to add colorful lights outside and the ambiance of candles inside. I am fond of the battery powered LED candles. Each week I add more of our winter 'happy pieces'. Official Christmas decorations go up midmonth for 3weeks to keep the reason for the season focussed for our family. Candles and lights definitely stay visible well into February. I read this morning that if you take the letters in DEPRESSION and switch them around you get the phrase I PRESSED ON. That's how I want to be remembered this year....be a light, shine on! 45 days ago
I miss seeing the grandkids and feeling their hugs. I have felt so sad that we have evolved to a society of rudeness, bullying and abuse in our social media. I am sad we have evolved to a society that can not resolve issues through love but has become a society that uses violence and destruction of beautiful things as a solution.
We have so much to be grateful for and need to show gratitude to all who have enriched our lives. #GiveThanks
I also don't suffer from depression but find myself being melancholy. Missing the grandkids that haven't been around, relatives, my friends, my church, my volunteer friends, vacationing. Sad seeing so many lives lost, so many hungry and struggling people. Didn't feel like decorating but I did it. I miss hugs and smiles I think most of all. 46 days ago
