Okay August. Time to turn you around. I’ve spent most of the past week loafing around the house in my pajamas, exhausted and depressed for letting the days slip by with next to nothing accomplished. Blah. Anyone else been the same? Saturday we drove up near Mont Tremblant to pick my daughter from camp and as anxious as I was to get away from making small talk with the other parents and home to familiar surroundings, I think the change of scenery helped.
Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, the sun is shining — it’s what we’ve been waiting for, isn’t it? And yet this time of year I find it especially hard to fight the urge to crawl into bed and shut out the world. Spring has sprung! We’re supposed to be happy! But what if you’re not? If you struggle with anxiety and depression or something else crappy, you might feel a little (or a lot) guilty. A little (or a lot) out of place. A little (or a lot) like something is wrong with you. Maybe all of those things. That’s how I feel a lot of the time, but I keep trying small things to lift myself up. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately.
