I suffered for the last day and a half from this feeling of...dark UGH... since yesterday. I have two friends who are going through really rough times right now and I let their sadness and troubles infiltrate me. I hurt for them and wish with all I am that I could do something to help ease their pain, Logically, I know I can't...but that doesn't mean I stop wishing I could help. On top of that, I spiral into my own negativity.
I needed to do something in order to get back to my happy and positive self. I decided to take a long walk, go to the park by my home and hug a tree and go barefoot in the grass...connect with Mother Nature for a while. Being cooped up in the apartment was not helping.
I felt so much better! It was such a beautiful day out and the park was lovely! I took a small lunch with me, my IPod, a notebook and chilled for a while. I laughed at the antics of dogs and their humans; smiled at the laughter of the children playing, sighed with joy at the gentle breeze that teased me as I enjoyed my time outside.
I stopped at Target for a couple of things to get me through the week and now I'm home to do some laundry and relax as I get ready for a new week! Life is very good!
