I’m back

I have been absent from blogging for a little bit. I decide to take a little break from social media and blogging. It was getting to be too much. My mind feels clear and with this absence from social media, I have a chance to take care of myself.

I was spending too much time reading stranger’s negatives comments about politics or the pandemic on social media. I was getting overwhelmed with all the negativity we have around I didn’t want to write in my blog, work on my journal, or read a book. My mind was feeling heavy. I was feeling sad and angry at everything. It was time to unplug for a while. I feel recharged. I finished a few projects I have put away and the Meds for the depression has been working fantastic. I wasn’t aware of how much social media and blogging was taking from me.

Meanwhile, I did some gardening for spring and got ready for the winter. I bought a stationary bike and every day I challenge myself to exercise. I took an online class “Creative Writing” and it was fun and inspiring. Also, a meditation class that helps to balance my life including a budget plan. If I want to retire in five years, I need to have a plan. I did a few changes and at this time it’s working. Unplugging myself from social media and focusing on my goals it has been helpful and a big change.

To finalize this post, I have wonderful news. I became for the fifth time a grandma of a baby boy. He was born on October 21. I haven’t seen him since I have a cold, but as soon as I get better, I will hold him in my arms.

Happy Sunday!

Tough Journey

My life has been a tough journey. One of my resolutions for this year was to take care of my health. Then again, it has been a tough one and I mean it. I can’t believe at this stage of my life, how the depression has taken over and changed my personality. The part I don’t like when it’s affecting my family and myself. I’ve stopped taking my MEDs since the week of my son’s wedding. It wasn’t doing any good. I decide to fight the depression with natural remedies and I still don’t see any improvements.

This weekend has been a tough one. I’m trying to keep my mind occupied with reading, coloring, or trying to write. However, these simple tasks are getting harder when I can’t concentrate and my thoughts are all over the place.

My husband found in Hulu a new series by Stephen King named “Castle Rock” and he wants to watch it with me. I need to be relaxed so I can be ready for work tomorrow.
