Me Too :(....over the summer I was so busy with outside and inside my home...lots of plans, lots accomplished...and now Nada! No energy, not feeling physically well...got sick twice last week...and a friend who kept me so busy for 3/5 days my head was spinning is now gone.
Silence is back in my house. My son, yes lives here but isolated upstairs with his computer and only comes downstairs for two things...he's angry with me most of the time cause I hold him accountable. He's 24 with aspergers and just makes a lot of excuses for not 'living a life'.
So anywho, I went searching which I do when feeling lost and found this https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/life/career/a25700487/how-to-find-purpose/. At 68, retired, I look around me and see so much more I could be doing, it's the energy level at the moment and the sadness too I'm feeling about me, son, life, the world.
I need to find some umph...anyone relate? I started a group here years ago What Do You Want...where I would write out three things a day to do, only three...something I needed to do, something I wanted to do, and something fun to do...just thought about this as I typed, perhaps I should go back to doing that again online...I do use a brain book (little 3x5 notebook...as I've No Brains and forget a lot :)...ah got to love being a senior!)
So I'll post the link...come and join in if you'd like to support others/yourself/or me :)
It's going to be a long winter...very hard for me, no doubt many during the winter months...I start to come back alive around March...with thoughts of getting outside again...anyone need a push to g et outside...I know how Good that is for mental health...maybe a place to do exercise accomplishments?
Just throwing stuff out :)
Take Good Care
Today is the first day of Advent. I thought I'd post one of my favorite women guides, Carolyn Myss and her talk about how these days are so challenging with the darkness coming so early.Advent is a Time Of Light. Caroline Myss & Robert Holden: Advent - be prepared for a new beginning - YouTubeI don't have any Christmas decorations up yet...Need to get energy, and clean and rearrange...
