Are You Still There?

I haven’t been blogging much lately and I notice that a lot of the people on my little list of bloggers I follow haven’t been as active, either. What’s going on with us? Are we all too busy for WordPress? Have we lost part of our minds in the busyness of summer? Will we get back to regularity eventually? Are we not eating enough fiber? (Sorry, bad joke.)

I’m posting this in hopes I will hear from WordPress friends and followers and maybe even from a new viewer or two.

Maybe you’re as busy as me. Longer, warmer days make more time for the things that can’t get done as easily in winter.

And the dark cloud that has been hovering over me comes and goes. I’m doing what I can to force it to stay out of the way of my sunshine – exercise, healthy food, essential oils purported to improve mood, sleep, even medication in desperation – but sometimes it is insistent. Do you fight with it, too?

Of course, only the village idiot is happy all the time. (I grabbed onto that saying from a fellow blogger. It reminds me that I am not as insane as I sometimes feel.)

I hope today has good moments for you, whoever and wherever you are. We all need at least a few of those, eh? But when things are dismal, it serves to intensify how much more we will appreciate when things are going well. And I always think of how all the more will heaven be joyous compared to earth.

  1. I think you nailed it actually. I was wondering the same thing. I had some really good days (3 to be exact) earlier in the month but it’s like everybody else went on vacation and didn’t tell us. I’m going to reblog this one to see if it will help.

  3. Ahhh, the ups and downs of life and the outlet of writing something I wish to share and hope some one relates, is encouraged or forms some type of connection with a total stranger (because many of us are more alike than we care to admit). Then the fish start biting and I’m off on an adventure.
    Actually for me my wife and I have had 4 deaths in our immediate family…life is like that.
    I have an accountability and prayer partner. This is how I have made it through really tough times, sad times and and helps manage my ever present depression. I lean heavily on the Lord daily….Hang in there Steeny!

  4. Ah, fishing. I’ve been eyeballing fishing kayaks more and more. Might step up to one someday and increase the joy of kayaking.

    Ugh, death. Yeah. I have nothing good to say about that right now.

    Leaning heavily on our Lord with ya, brother.
