I made it to print if interested.. if you do, I'd recommend printing it on card stock.
I wanted it to say: Ho Ho but it seems to say OH OH - which better describes 2020 anyhow
LOL -so I'll leave it.
Spinning out of control is depression. I read Japan had more suicides in the last month than all covid deaths so far. Suicide in children has risen as has teen and adults and we are not talking about it - because… we don't want to depress anyone.
Norm doesn't think he gets “depressed” he is effected by the light change in particular I noticed, more than most, complaining it’s ‘too dark’, he’s tired, no energy… this is Canadian winter just started in a pandemic - during second wave.
He gets grumpy and motivating turns to nagging (in his mind) which causes some arguing. Expected. Expect it. The things we argue about we have been for 30 years.. they are shorter and forgotten faster. Amen. I chalk it up to the pandemic. We fight about him not eating properly and being tired which can lead to carelessness & accidents - no one wants to go to the hospital if they can avoid it. Yes, he does experience depression like us all, it does not seem to last long though - I attribute it to being busy.
I’m trying to chalk up lot’s to the pandemic.. I’m trying to keep focused so that I don’t get down, keeping calmly creating. Today is much better than the past 2... I’m trying to have the perspective that this forced isolation is a time to focus on our inner worlds.
I know countless people who will say they are not depressed… who obviously are. Perhaps the mixed message about being sick when depressed, sick and sad are very different -if more people admitted they were sad I think less would get sick.
Are you feeling sad & tired, then I know not much I say will help so let me just say:
Try to nap, be nice to yourself, read, listen to some classical music (romantic classical) create a card for someone, ponder God.
It takes great learning to understand that all things,
events, encounters and circumstances are helpful.
The key word being ‘all.
