My kids are going to a Super Bowl party at a friend's house. I was invited, but I am feeling the need for some solitude. I am taking tomorrow afternoon off from teaching.
I plan on going to church, going to the gym, doing laundry, cleaning, and pondering.
Oh and wrestling and hopefully defeating the "D" word. Depression. There, I named it. Yes, it's back. In its full dark force.
It brings its friends self doubt, insecurity and anxiety. We are all well acquainted.
I am too tired to fight with them now. I am putting on my armor of faith, gratitude, and perseverance.
And going to bed.
Hopefully after a good night's sleep, and the new perspective a fresh dawn brings, I will find the strength to overcome those pesky varmits!
Good night. Sweet dreams and Happy Saturday!
