Barely There Blues

If you are troubled by some of this dark early and dawn late kind of weather, try to add some new things to your routine, you may also be finding yourself wondering why it is you gave up your drug of choice.

After all, using wasn't always fun. It was also a reason to "escape" discomfort and, most certainly, to escape the blues.

The fact that is caused blues that would rival any tsunami was beside the point, because, after all, it did temporarily remove the pain.

So, for today, think about what it is you can do to replace that self-soothing tactic. Think about what will "feed" you instead of deplete you more. Think of what will make you more alive and able to embrace the reality of this time of year. You might just find that means doing something for someone else.

  1. I had such a rough day on Wed. because of having to put my heart dog down. So later, I called up someone in the fellowship who is sick and offered to bring dinner to him. We had a good conversation and it helped me to get out of my sorrow.
