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 hope you have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the little things.
