I was feeling kind of blue, until...

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Sometimes the depression just flares up with no rhyme or reason. Today was such a day. I felt like cement, like I couldn't move and wanted to cry. I couldn't come up with a more specific reason than the fact that depression borders on being the "norm" for me.

Until.

I had put a post on Ted Allen's Facebook page, asking a question about a recipe of his that I plan to use for a brunch I'm hosting next weekend. He just posted me a detailed and very gracious reply! So between him and Bobby, that makes TWO people I respect and admire who took time from VERY busy schedules to respond to my posts. And coincidentally, two people in New York and at Food Network I've been in touch with who know my name. It may seem small or silly to others, but I'm thrilled, appreciative and an even bigger fan of both men.

(Okay, this is the fourth time I've edited this blog entry! Why does Ted's picture keep vanishing?)

    I think it's the Universe's way of reminding you that you're worth it

    Getting involved in something that you are really passionate about can lift that funk nicely. Good for you.

Isn't cooking the best?!

    How lovely! He seems like a nice person, so it's nice to hear that his behavior bore that out. I hope the recipe turns out beautifully...but then it should, between your talent as a chef and the advice you received.

    How NICE to get a PERSONAL REPLY from him! That HAD to be a MOOD CHANGER!
I feel sad at times too, FOR NO REASON! Sometimes it lasts for DAYS! I just TRY to "PUSH ON" & do the best I can & eventually, it goes away.

Have a wonderful Sunday & enjoy your brunch!

  I think it's awesome! I watched CHOPPED ALLSTARS yesterday and he is just so good. And I LOVE when Marcus is a judge. He has such constructive critiques to give. Elizabeth went home, but I thought she did a bang up job. Oh well.

    So cool!
I've had the same problem with the depression . . . it's always nice when something happens that snaps you out of it. And Ted Allen and Bobby Flay are pretty cool people to be in touch with. I'm always impressed when busy people take the time to respond to questions from fans and show their appreciation for people.

    It's not weird to feel that way. They are busy men who took time to answer your questions personally, I'd feel pretty special too.
