Go Outside (GP2-024)

I am up early.  I am trying to outrun the funk.  I am down this weekend.  I am not sure why…It just happens.  Anyway.  I work in the studio for a few hours.  Theresa comes in and suggests that we go hiking.  I don’t even want to leave the house.  Sigh….I hate these days.  I don’t know why they come from out of nowhere, but they do.  After some debating n my head we decide to walk to the nearest Geocache.  It is less than half a mile from my door.  At least we are going outside.  Just then a Gift Opportunity shows up.  Viv and Kotori need a last minute sitter…just for an hour.  We are so there.  Ace, their little boy, is super cute and so pleasant to be around.  So Darwin, Ace, Theresa, and I walk to the geocache spot.  We search and search.  This is the second time we have been to this park to find it and couldn’t find it.  This bothers me more than it should.  We walk home.  Kotori and Viv show up to pick up Ace….and they bring ICE CREAM!  What a great gift!…My effort was tiny today.  Some days that’s all I got.  OH well…hopefully it will be easier tomorrow.  Take care.

    This is more than most people see or do, you gave love, friendship, babysitting,spent time with the family…and time relaxing, these are all really great gifts!

    Wow, sorry to hear about this…….it seems that you’re struggling more and more to keep up a positive frame of mind. I would think much of it comes with the financial struggles you and Theresa are having just to make ends meet, but wonder what else is bothering you. I was sorry to read that you had to give up time with your therapist to save money to pay regular bills.

    Ohe really good thing…….even though you didn’t feel like it, I’m SO glad you took Theresa’s offer to go outside. I think you know I’ve struggled with similar feelings throughout the years; I’ve learned that no matter how much you don’t feel like it, getting up and out the door is ALWAYS better that sitting around stewing in the funk.

    What a delightful surprise that a giving opportunity just happened to show up……you say “my effort was tiny today” but any effort on a day like you describe is huge. Please don’t minimize anything you do……

    Oh third son, my heart is breaking……..the only advice I have is to let you wife, your son, and anyone else close to you help you, try to keep your focus on what is most important and true for you and your family, keep your obligations to a minimum right now, and hopefully you will find your way out and begin to feel better. I want the best for all of you…….
