My own dark clouds

Endless cycle

Endless cycle

I didn’t realize just how foretelling my last post would be. I was experiencing my own dark clouds and through a series of unfortunate events, I allowed my brain to take over and went through a period of depression and anxiety.

There are still some dark days and moments, but they are getting fewer and farther between occurrences.

What I have learned during this time is valuable. There are a lot of things outside our control and we have to learn to let them go. It could be toxic foods for a diabetic. It could be toxic friends in our daily relationships. It could be a toxic job that is aging us way faster than normal due to stress. Whatever the reason, the longer we allow the negativity to occupy space in our head is more time and space that is not allowed to focus on things that bring us joy and happiness.

And peace. I hope your day is filled with peace.

    David, sorry to hear you are going through rough times. Miss your blogs, as I said you are a natural writer. Hope the sun shines brightly soon.

      Thanks Donna. A lot of things hit at once and I caved. Guess I’ll learn not to skip leg day at the gym so I can stand stronger. πŸ™‚

    David, whatever darkness shadows our lives, love is always at the core. Dark clouds pass. Love is forever. In family. In friends.

      Thank you Patty! It seemed that love is what got me in trouble. I was pouring out the love and I told myself I wasn’t expecting anything back. But there were conditions. I was lying to myself. Working on that. πŸ™‚

    I recently read that letting go of the past is just like going forward on monkey bars….at some point you must let go of the last place your hand was
