I need this

I’ve been dealing with depression what it looks like forever. I’ve days I feel great, energetic, and positive wanting to do anything.  However, it can change in a second feeling opposite and wanting to be alone. The mood swings are interfering with my life and hurting the people I love. 

My family wants me to make a few changes like eating healthier, meditate, and take a break. Lately I’ve been taking everything seriously and too personal and I need to stop. I want to be the person I was before instead I’ve turned on this moody and cranky person. It makes feel guilty and unhappy.

The word “pause” is a reflection on what I need to do. I’ve to reconnect with all the things that it makes me feel blessed.  My daughter has suggested to disconnect with social media for a while such as Facebook. When I open my account, it was to reconnect with my family and longtime friends. In the beginning, it was exciting to find them to look at their family pictures and how much they have accomplished. However, the fun and the excitement completely gone. Facebook has turned into a bunch of complainers who loves to spread their negativity. Sadly, I’ve to eliminate some from my list of friends, including family members.

I won’t close my account.  I’ve nice people I care very much, I simply want to take a break. Very soon school will be over and my vacation will begin.  It will be time for camping with my grandkids also planning a few trips out of the state.

For now, I’m keeping my Pinterest and my blog. I feel relaxed when I’m blogging or pinning of course, watch a few TV shows, too. Taking care of myself will be good at the end it will take me on a journey to a new me.


Daily Post: Pause


Hate to Love

I wrote about my guilty pleasures on a post not too long ago “No Apologies”, however I’ve realized I’ve a few new guilty pleasures. I’ve been spending a lot of my time in Pinterest, reading cozy mysteries, and writing short stories that I keep in a file with the intention of one day others can enjoy.

I’ve Pinterest since last year, but it’s not until a month ago that I decide to take it further. It’s has been entertaining, relaxing, and fun. I love creating boards from decoration, recipes, history, and traveling. Its fun seeing what others like also I do like to take a few ideas from them. I’m not on Facebook as much I use to be; sometimes it makes me feel more depressed. My new guilty pleasure I will say is Pinterest.



Tell us about a guilty pleasure that you hate to love.

Thanks for the great idea, Ana Santos!
