Going Home

18 Oct

So i hadn’t been on the expressway 10 minutes, on my way home, before i started to get the blues.  i could feel my heart drooping.  Sheesh.  Apparently, all my insights fly out the window in the face of reality…

But i rallied, because, you know, there’s no point in talking about dealing with something, unless you’re going to do it.  Unless i’m going to do it.  So i remembered this one moment, just a few hours earlier, that i felt happy.  Deeply happy.  Perfectly happy.  i held onto that moment.

i listened to music i like and sang.  Loudly.

When i got home, i went to the park and walked for over an hour.  That should get those endorphins pumping.  (Did you know – the human brain is hard-wired to find pleasure in 3 things.  Guess what they are.  Yes, food.  Yes, sex.  And – drumroll – exercise!)

i had a nice salad for dinner – lettuce, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, avocado, grapes, slices of strawberries, feta cheese, and cinnamon almonds, with Raspberry Pecan dressing.  And a glass of white wine.  One glass.

When i go to bed tonight, i’ll get out “Big Blue” (not to be confused with “feeling blue.”)  A little recreation before i fall asleep should help me sleep well.

And i think about this quote i ran across the other day:

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

From Dr. Seuss!  Who’dda  thought he knew anything about subs spiraling down into subdrop?   {Laughing}

But i don’t think i’m spiraling down any more either.  Really, i’m just not going to do it.  And if i do, i’ll handle it, cause it’s ok to feel what i feel.  Right?

 After i got home last night, i saw all the responses to my post yesterday, and was amazed and touched.  You know, i used to read the NY Times on-line in the morning.  Now, my little community of blogger friends has become so important to me, i can’t imagine mornings without you.   Thank you all so much for being who you are!!!

    I’m glad to have met you aisha. You have become an important part of my life. I’m glad you were able to see your Sir this past weekend unexpectedly. I understand about the drop afterwards. hugs
