Day 326

I listened to a new meditation guide by The Honest Guys; GUIDED SLEEP MEDITATION The Cave of Serenity. Earth Grounding. It definitely helped my sleep and I got a nice 7 hours. I woke filled with dread though because I knew the day would have me doing something I didn’t want to.

I sipped a cup of coffee and jumped straight into practising languages. Hubby was awake so I let him listen to the Norwegian practice. He had fun picking up a few words. We’ve been fans of the Norwegian comedy duo, Ylvis, for years so we’ve often talked about learning.

Once 10.30 am rolled around I knew it was time for what I’d been dreading. I logged on to WoW to do dungeons with my friend. I had last Sunday off because I told him I was ‘sick’. So he asked how I was feeling and I answered honestly; I didn’t feel that good still. Then he asked if I had the flu. I didn’t know how to reply. I wasn’t ‘sick’ sick, I’ve just been feeling really mentally unwell and finding it hard to be around people… very hard. I was so ashamed of the real answer but I told him anyway.

Then we started the day as normal and did the dungeons. For the whole day I felt so ashamed that I was depressed. Why would I even tell someone that? It’s hard enough living with depression but feeling like I can’t talk about it because I’m ashamed….doesn’t help. This is also why I have trouble having friends. I feel like I’m doing my best at pushing the only friend I have away too. Ugh!!

That all wrapped up around 2 pm and it was time to Puddles. That was the only art-ing I managed. After I had done that, I jumped into bed for a nap to try and reset my brain. I’m not sure it did that. If anything, it gave me more alone time to think before I dozed off. Not helpful.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him taking a break from the holiday celebrations and catching up on his laundry. Douglas dog didn’t take the day off and dived into the bag of dog biscuits to celebrate International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. What a mouthful!!

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.

  1. I have been so busy lately It is hard to keep up with some of my followers. I forgot about your fun penguin character. Your little cartoon character is coming along nicely. It seems like there are a lot of people out in the world right now dealing with sadness. There is a lot going on out in the world that makes us sad. Best advice I try to follow for myself is to stay off the news sites, go outside and get a little sunshine therapy, take walks in nature, volunteer or do something kind for someone. Helping others seems to be the best medicine for me. I bet volunteering with children and drawing and creating fun cartoon characters together would be fun. Even older generations at rest homes love visitors and art therapy as I call it. Hope your days start getting more cheerful. Love your drawings.

    1. Thanks for stopping by again. =) I’m really enjoying developing the characters for my Penguin cartoon. The daily drawing practice is also very handy.

      That’s really good advice. Helping others definitely gets you out of your own little world. Maybe one day that’ll be something I could do. Until then I’ll have to stick to encouraging as many people as I can through my blog.

      I hope you and your family have a fantastic and creative week. Take care =)
