Tuesday in February

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

Today is a dreary day but at least it is not cold and snowing like it was a week ago. I'm still trying to paint. Believing today will be a good day.

  Waiting for the snow to start here. Few more hours I guess.

It's a New Beginning

Thursday, January 03, 2013

The new year has begun and I am going to improve my attitude this year. I am going to paint, photograph and find some new friends who make me happy and enjoy the friends I already have. Today I am going back to painting class. I hope to complete a painting I started before the holidays. I have posted my latest painting on my page (my daughter when she was in ballet). I like all of it except her hands -- wasn't able to get them exactly like I wanted. I hope all of you are having great feelings about the new year too.

    Wow your painting is beautiful! I wish I could paint!

Remember not to try to change everything at once, small deliberate steps give you a better chance for success!

Today I worked some; however, didn't make much progress. Very down today.

    I agree. Baby steps helps. Try not to be down. You did some work, and that is a good thing! Some days are better than others, and that is okay too.

emoticon to you!

Made it to Wednesday again.

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Today I am trying to re-assess my bad mood. My life has so many good things and I am grateful to have a great husband and family. I don't understand why I am so down-in-the-dumps. My energy level is 0. Yesterday I sat most of the day and played on the computer. I seem to have lost interest in all the things I use to enjoy. Another friend died Monday. That makes two in two weeks. It seems that it's just getting closer each day. And maybe that's not a bad thing. Oh well, so much for my rambling. Hope I didn't rub off on you.

I did learn to use frames in Photoshop yesterday. Here is one I did.

    Beautiful poppies by the way--I love pink, especially a rosy pink like that.

    My heart goes out to you. I, too, lost friends and family, a lot during a year period.

What I did not do is go to see therapy for grief. I would recommend it. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is particularly helpful. I wish I had made the time to get it.

There is group therapy or individual therapy. Some peeps like being in a group. With some other peeps, being in a group may depress them more. I was told it is better for me to get individual therapy, as I am so empathetic with other's stories, that it sometimes is a downer for me, at a time when you need to stay away from downers.

My therapist also says to stay away from any tear jerker movies, and to watch only funny TV shows, movies, and read only funny books.

Sending many hugs to you: emoticon emoticon emoticon

  I love you CEB!

Just know that! Whatever mood you are in, you are loved and you send other people comfort by posting your pictures, and by sharing your art!

    You have had a lot of loss. Plus you should see your doc for a thyroid check. Thyroid can cause depression. Be better my friend. I know it is hard sometimes emoticon

    Sometimes the loss of friends will leave us in a funk. Two in two weeks makes it real hard. I hope it turns around for you soon, if not you may need to see a doctor and see if there is anything they can do to help you out thru this rough patch.

The Poppies look great!

Sunday and I'm feeling lonely

Sunday, September 16, 2012

I miss having anyone to talk to -- friends are gone or busy. Jim is not one to talk unless he has something specific to say. Just miss having Mother to "discuss" things with.

    Sorry you are feeling lonely. How blessed to have Sparkpeople to come and share your feelings. Perhaps you can think of an older friend who is alone and could enjoy some company even just a thoughtful phone call. Being thought of with kindness can some times really bring some joy into another's life. Think about it and make a call.

    That is one thing I am lucky that I don't usually miss talking to anyone. Bill is my sweetie but I get tired of bowling stories.
Hope you get over that feeling.I think you are just missing mother more today and that will get better with time emoticon
