I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face.    Johnny Depp

I got out of bed today! I know that doesn’t sound like an accomplishment, but I’ve been sleeping a lot lately. Anxiety and depression make it difficult to get excited about mornings.
When I was working, I felt like I never had enough time to pursue things I enjoyed or thought I would enjoy. Now I have so much time, but can’t convince myself to do anything other than sleep.
In an effort to feel better, I’ve been researching meditation and trying some of the online guided meditations. After a few weeks of trying out the various offerings, I have found a few that I like and use on a regular basis. I’ve also discovered that the more you meditate, the better it works! I find myself looking forward to my nighttime ritual of meditation, my dog’s heavy snoring and all-night thunderstorms from Spotify.
my accomplishments today:
  • almost finished baby William’s blanket
  • bought a small electric tiller
  • called Rich to discuss my preferences for the land
  • began this blog
  • washed the bedding
  • contacted two family members
  • put clean dishes away and dirty ones in dishwasher
  • read a fabulous blog from someone living in Italy
  • relaxed

Doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a start. Talk to you tomorrow!
