Slowing Down

My summer has been flying at me at NASCAR speeds, when I'm really wanting a geriatric Sunday drive. I'm struggling to believe that July is almost gone. I'm not ready for August. I'm not.

So here's a list of things that I'm behind on:
  • Reading
  • House Projects
  • Soap Porn
  • Daily Audio Bible
  • A Few Bills
On the plus side, I have accomplished the following:
  • Working on the Yoga flow challenge. I don't have it down perfect (Upside down splits? Falling to bridge? Yikes!) but I have figured out a few modifications until I work up the courage/strength/flexibility to follow through.
  • Hired a cleaning lady. She comes every other Wednesday to do my surfaces (counters, tables, floors, dusting) and bathrooms. She is awesome. If I can slow the rest of my life down, I should be able to use my "free" time to de-junk my house, organize my awesome, and maybe get a few of the things on the previous list done.
  • Falling madly, completely, and happily in love. I let my anxiety and depression get to me, and at just about the point where everything was going to fall apart, I woke the frick up, got myself on some meds, and started dealing with stuff. It's been hard to let some of my past go, to accept that a love is no longer returned, and to fully embrace my life for the crazy, beautiful disaster that it is. And I fell in love with me again, and I fell in love with him too.
  • I started a bullet journal. I'm still working out the kinks, figuring out what I need and what I don't, the realities of my time. It's also keeping me focused. Sometimes. I am a work in progress.
It's all left turns here, but I'm not coming last!
(see what I did there? NASCAR reference... it's ok, I'll wait for you to catch up...)

I am happy for you!!

I can understand so much about the depression too. I had a really rough time years ago and ended up taking meds for about 6 months. It was so worth it!

Hang in there!!

Oh Sherry!! You and I are sisters from a different mother. I know how you feel1 I, too, battled with depression and anxiety this past year. Like you, I woke up and found some mood stabilizing medication to help shut my brain off at night so that I could sleep...finally sleep! You're on the road now...NO LOOKING BACK1!!

Hey Sherry....I'm checking back with you to see how you are doing. I noticed it's been a while since you last posted and wanted to make sure that you were ok. Send me a message on my blog or even email me if you want:

Signed the concerned "other Sherry." :)
