I haven't posted for some time..it seems life gets in my way. Lots of ups and downs..why does it always seem like there are more downs than ups? How does one get out of a "funk" ? How does one stay positive when it seems like there is nothing to be positive about! I am usually a very positive person..what happened? I feel so very tired..nothing seems to be going right..the only good thing around me right now is my husband. I want to find time for me,to create things that make me happy....but family keeps pulling at me,in different directions..this makes me so tired. I worry about things that I can't do anything about right now.It is depressing to realize that certain things are going to happen in my life and I can't make it any better..oh well. Maybe what I need is some good sleep..haven't had good sleep for the longest time. Maybe I should cleanse my home ..seems to be filled with bad karma, which I don't understand why,because I am a believer in karma and have tried to live with the thought that the good I do will come back to me..how long does it take?

Oh,I understand your feelings.It happens to me ,too and sometimes I think it's just too much for me .. but ups always come back, thanks God..
Maybe you just have to stop a bit and find more time for yourself .Try to be kind to yourself and give your body what your body needs and give your soul what your soul needs.

I appreciate your thoughts and feelings about my blog, I used coffee to dye all the fabrics and lace , flowers and everything when I took the KC willis class. Had it hung over fences, chairs ,grass everywhere, lots of fun. You have trouble sleeping I read, I had trouble for 10 years and then found trazadone-100mg no side effects, very cheap also and sleep like a baby. I longed for sleep and now it is just a distant memory. Ir has been a year, I've never had to increase the dosage. Just a thought, I know how defeating it seems to be awake when the world is sleeping.

your blog is wonderful...someday i hope to take thke the KC Willis class..everyone who has taken it and posted what they've done has made absolutely beautiful things.
i will check with my doctor about the trazadone..i really appreciate it...only someone who has had sleep trouble understands..i haven't slept well for over 14 years..as i get older,i tolerate it less!! i feel so fuzzy now from lack of sleep!!

I know when things get bad, I have to make myself leave the house, otherwise I turn into a hermit. Going for a walk always clears my head. Chamomile tea helps with the sleep. Things will change, they can not remain as they are... XX

Ann said...

thank you Rose !! i do need to get out..just don't have the energy or drive...guess i'll just have to force myself.

Oh Dear Ann, Sounds like some major depression. If you don't come out of it soon........talk to your Dr.so much can be done. Get out of the house and if the kids are there,put them to work. Give everyone a list of what needs to be done. Find a quiet room with a lock on the door,listen to music or create. Don't come out for an hour at least unless the house is on Fire.
Hugs, Amy

Dear Ann, upon waking each morning take a moment to say good morning to yourself. Then say you will have a good day if it is to be your will. Smile before you leave your bedroom and face the day in a positive mind. If the day takes a bad turn just remind yourself tomorrow will be better. Will keep you in prayer.

Oh Ann, don't most of us go through this time and again (at least us, who admit to it). I think everyone has something though as some time. It is very hard when you are faced with it and there's no where else to look. Try journaling. Get it off your chest. I don't mean write a lot of bad stuff (I for one, can not do that), but maybe just a few words to release it. Or draw a few pictures. Sometimes I doodle. Look at Zentangle.com - my doodles lately have been coming out as monsters. If you can get up early before anyone else and after you write some thoughts, try to take one day at a time and find something positive in each day. One gratitude. Concentrate on it. xox

Oh...and those "monsters" make me laugh. Color them with colored pencils. It's something creative anyway and that makes you feel better!
