Why spell it out, when you can say it with an emoticon. I could have gone for :/ but I thought it important I ended on a high point (smile facing up) and those little beady eyes look too vulnerable for me today.
Though lately I feel like I’m dismissing too many days as being ‘ one of those days’. I asked DH if he thought I might be depressed? I’m certainly down about my current inability to move myself on. He wasn’t prepared to make a call on it though I can see he feels my pain.
Here are some obvious steps I can take:
Lighten up: i.e. dye my hair I’ve been stretching out my last semi-permanent colour as long as I can. I need to go to the hairdressers. Things (me) should look brighter.
Action: Make a hair appointment.
Change my outlook: i.e. replace my glasses. Though I have my current pair less than a year, the lens are scratched badly so I look at the world through a permanently smudged window. (^0_0^)
Action: Visit opticians, choose new frames and replace my lens.
De-clutter: to really expect clear thoughts I should have clear thoroughfares. The obstacles in my house (piles of laundry, stacks of unread books and newspapers etc) must be a manifestation of the blocks in my head. De-junk and clarity should follow.
Action: Go to my bedroom. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. I reckon I’m about 25 paces from my proverbial portrait in the attic (messroom with bed in) but it feels like there’s a shark infested ocean between us.
