Fall is officially here, but that usually means nothing for us here in Louisiana. But today as I’m sitting outside playing with Avery’s new rock collection, making a list of all of the home projects that need to be completed, there’s a cool breeze. A calming breeze. It’s much needed.
August and September were good. A bit gentler. I did what I had the energy to do to stay in a level headspace–I decluttered, organized, and rested. I also celebrated my BIL’s & my husband’s birthday; spent a lot of time outside at my son’s & my nephew’s football games; I’m still reveling in the excitement of my daughter’s senior year of high school while dishing out ca$h here and there for fees; and a girlfriend and I traveled up to the DMV to visit our best friend. And all of that was enough to pull me out of the darkness that depression can shroud you with.
