I don’t know about you, but I could not be happier than spring is here. The trees are full of green and pretty colors, the grass is growing back, and the sun is shining and warm.
Around the end of February or so, I got hit with the dreaded wintery depression. My anxiety was through the roof. I was mentally and physically exhausted and having gone a while without seeing the sun hardly at all was starting to take its toll on me. I went from running a 5k 3 times a week and weight lifting to not lifting my finger unless it was necessary. I felt like I had lost my way and had lost my interest in everything. It was the middle of tax season, which is quite taxing (excuse the cheesy pun, but I had to).
If you were hit with the wintertime blues, I hope you’re starting to come out of it, too.
I told my husband earlier that I am finally feeling good for the first time and months, and he asked me what sparked the change. I wish I had an answer. It just comes on suddenly and leaves just as quickly. That’s how it seems to be with me…I go from 0 to 60 just like that. I will literally wake up one day and feel changed without a real reason for it. So, while I am feeling good, which is hopefully going to last a long while, I am going to take advantage of it. I am getting back into running and doing what I enjoy–writing.
I have been kind of MIA from blogging not only because of work and the depression but for a little while, I had dove in head first and was working on my novel. Maybe one day I will get that thing done.
I feel like I have been brought back to life, a rebirth, so time to take advantage of it.
