I haven't had much to say, really. At all. Winter is a very hard time for me. Perhaps I have seasonal affective disorder. No matter what it is, every February gets a little rough. As an avid "previous year's journal entry" reader, I can assure you that every February I start to feel lazy and dull. I start to feel a little less in control. I worry about my relationships. This is the time of year when I think my friends are all talking about me behind ym back and that my fiance is on the brink of leaving me.
And it's all imaginary.
Basically, what I end up with is an internal dialog. The Voice, you know the one, says, "God! You're just so fat and boring. I can't believe anyone wants to be around you." Then the logical voice says, "That's not true. Ignore it."
So, I try to distract myself. I read. I write. I play video games. I add in an extra work out. I look up recipes. I try to make myself interested in what is going on around me. I try something new.
Today I am going to look into some spring cleaning stuff.
What do you do to get over the Winter Blahs?
