Testing the water

It appears that I have taken an unplanned break from blogging. I didn't intentionally not post anything in over a month, it just happened I guess. My last emotionally charged post threw me for a loop and I slipped into a bit of a depression.  Ok, it was more than a bit, but it was a depression, none the less.  Maybe I'll talk about that depressive episode one of these days, but today is not that day.

I have just recently been feeling a gentle nudge from the Divine to get back here.  To post something.  Anything.  Sharing my thoughts has always been a very healing experience for me. It has always been a way to clear out the clutter that builds in my mind.  So here I sit with a very much cluttered up mind.  I sit here feeling like I've got so much to say, but don't know where to start.  I know that in order to heal I need to bring those thoughts to the surface.

Instead of forcing myself to just pick something, I'll wait.  I'm not in a hurry. Healing takes place at it s own pace, not mine.  Some things are meant to share and some things are meant to be kept private.  Private can be good, as long as it doesn't turn into isolation.

So I'm slowly wading into the blogging waters and letting myself get used to the feel of it again before I jump in head first.  If feels pretty safe to me, but I'll take it slow. 

Just my thoughts.

I completely get the time needed away from blogging because of depression. I'm starting to feel a bit more normal - I get liberated by school being over, although I'm not sure why since I'm not the one in school.

Yes. Just breathe, enjoy the sunshine. Hee. That's what I'm gonna do.

Stacey - I also get liberated when school is out, so I get that. 2 days left here. I have been getting outside for 20 minutes each day. Vitamin D is the best medicine for depression.

Christine - It feels good to be back. Thank you.

M.F.P. - I love reading your thoughts.
