You know how some people say that the weather affects their well being, and their moods?
I was never one to agree, matter of fact I always thought, oh that's just dumb. Perhaps I was being naive, perhaps I was just lucky that it never seemed to affect me in any way, or perhaps I was just in a fog of my own.
As I've gotten older, just like many other things in my life, things have changed. Foods I used to dislike I now love, or vice versa, music I didn't care for now is what I enjoy listening to, thoughts and opinions I had on different subjects have completely changed, and so on and so forth.
You know what I'm about to say right?
The whole weather thing affecting moods have changed for me too. It's weird, and a little difficult to get used to because I've never put much weight into any of it, and to now have something else out of my control is quite disconcerting.
The blogging thing? The no posting, the non updates? Yes, all due to how I'm feeling lately which is a mixture of confused, tired, and generally non motivated.
We have had fog for quite a few days in a row and I miss the sun, I don't know where it is, I'm assuming hiding way up there behind this blanket of clouds and fog. I miss it, and I crave it and it's driving me quite bonkers to have to sit here and wade through these depressing winter days.
How do you do it? How do you push yourself through it?
And as I'm typing this post, I look outside and see this. The fog has lifted, and the clouds are dispersing. Coincidence?
I think not, but then I'm not one for coincidences, I happen to think that things happen for a reason and that God has His hand in it all.
I guess this is the sign I was looking for, that little nudge to stop feeling sorry for myself and to just get up and get going, and you know when God talks to me, I listen. Boy do I listen.
So, with that said, I would like to ask you all for some prayers for a different thing.
My husband has been offered a potential job as an instructor at Sheppard AFB in Texas. It would be a wonderful opportunity for us as a family, and a good pay. But, it would also mean having to leave my family behind and saying goodby again, which is something I do NOT want to do. They have shown interest in relocating to Texas as well, so maybe that is something we could help them with, but either way I don't know.
Again, it's being put in the Lord's hands and we'll take it from there.
Right, now I need to get my butt in gear, get kids started with school, go on with the laundry and housework, work on some recipes for the food blog and so on.
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
