Shunshine on my shouldersh…..

Yes, I meant to write shunshine.

If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time….you must know that I am always striving to find a balance between living a creative life, being responsible for my family, and trying to find the humor in things.

Shortly after my wonderful visit to San Diego, I admittedly fell into a loathsome darkness….where I felt like everything I was doing with my life was going in the wrong direction (which it wasn’t) and that I had to disappear to feel better (which I didn’t).  I was just going through the motions.  It was one of my worst winter seasons thus far…which leads me to:

Feeling Good!!!

Shortly after I started my tried and true vitamin and healthy eating routine, the darkness lifted (which I knew it would) and my thoughts became clearer and brighter and funnier and way more optimistic and creative!  For the curious ones out there, I take a B complex, Vitamin D, a Probiotic, and an Omega 3.  I would say within 2 days I felt better and within a week I felt like I was back to my old self.

Of course the light and sunshine and warmer weather help it all out.

I have found that some people chalk the sadness and guilt to being a creative person….that’s just they way of a creative mind…I’m not so sure.

My mind is more clear and fast when I’m not feeling blue….more like a light, sky blue and less like an angry, drab gray-blue.

Salt in my wounds

This tv show I found tonight on HGTV is killing me.  It’s called Hawaii Life.  As if coming back to 20 degree weather wasn’t hard enough.

It’s basically like taking my already sad, dry skin and scraping it over lava rocks and then dipping it in salt water. 

Like forcing my Midwest pale-ness to sunbathe minus sunscreen during the hours of 10 am and 2 pm. 

It’s like taking that 3rd degree burned skin and sending it out to the pineapple fields to pick a peck. 

Torture.  Yet I can’t look away.
