Depressing

What in particular? So many things...

Rarely seeing the sun (all that Oregon rain).

Hearing about the dissolution of a long-term marriage.

Watching the workload at your business slow down week by week.

Struggling to make friends in the limited free, adult time you have as a parent. (And no, befriending my kid's friends' parents hasn't been so successful)

Wanting to make a change - new job for spouse, new car, vacation somewhere sunny- and being terrified of commiting to a possible mistake.

Life isn't terrible, but it sure is harder and harder to be happy, relaxed, optimistic right now.

It's okay - we all have those times when it seems joy is out of reach.

But know one thing: It's temporary.

You don't know what blessings are around the corner for you, so just keep your head up and count the great things that you have going for you. Things people all over this world wish they had.

Hope you feel better :)

Thank you for the kind words.

I know that this will pass...and honestly, it helps to just 'talk' about it rather than keep it to myself and worry!
