One day at a time, as they say.

I’ve had three false starts at a blog post today.

Each time I’ve nixed it because it just felt too dark and depressing.

My head is kind of stuck in the storm clouds as of late and I’m not really sure how long it will be before I can escape.

Everyone is always so “think positive,” “have faith,” blah, blah–those things might sound good but they aren’t very helpful to a person who is drowning.

Just swim and you’ll be fine.

I don’t know how to swim!

Just kick your feet and paddle your arms.

Thanks for that bit of wisdom, but that’s what I’m already doing and it’s barely keeping my head above the water!

You just gotta try harder. Believe it and you will achieve it!

Maybe you could toss down that glub life glub pre-glub-ser-glub-ver. Glub.

But hey, tomorrow is another day, and maybe it will be a better day.

Love & Light
