The weather has been mostly wet, cold and gray here lately and I’ve kind of been stuck on autopilot since January 2nd because of it.
I have touched on the fact that I suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) in the past…and well, this Winter was no exception. In fact, this has probably been the worst Winter ever because of it.
I’m not down to the point that I can’t function. I’m still going about my days and all, just without any passion.
It’s crazy to me how the simple lack of sunshine can do that to a person.
When I realized that today marked nearly 2 weeks of my being down in the dumps I decided I would pull up my big girl panties and try to get it together. I also realized that somewhere in those 2 weeks I managed to put on 5 lbs…and I think I might have come out of the holidays with an extra 5lbs as well…so my pants are all tight and my self esteem is low.
But I also know that I am BEYOND blessed…that tomorrow is another day…and honestly that life if too short not to try and make the most of even the low times.
So now, I’m digging out.
There is so much I’m looking forward to for this year and want to write about here…and I’m hoping that after I start running again regularly I’ll perk up and things will go back to normal (well, my version of normal anyway).
