Just Down

I have been away from posting for a few weeks, and I apologize.  I have unfortunately been feeling in very low spirits of late, and I have not been successful in trying to get up the energy to write.  There really has been no "one thing" that has gotten me "down".  It is just that it seems lime most things are a chore and zap my ambition from me rather quickly. 

But, I know, and I DO truly know this, even though it sometimes takes me time to remember..... but I do know that if I screw up the energy to persevere.... to pull myself up by my bootstraps.... and keep forcing myself to do what I should do.... then things eventually become better. 

I am resolving in my mind that today is the start of this resolve.  I am going to muster all my reserves and try to utilize all the damn gumption I can wring out of myself to push on, and to force myself into doing the myriad of things I should do, including writing here.  If I keep pushing, and pushing, and pushing through.... it will become better.

Hey, hey! Welcome back! I was getting worried about you. We all enjoy hearing from you. Even if only briefly, my friend whom I have never met, please take a few minutes when you can to let us know what is happening in your world.

There are times when perseverance is all we have.

Hi Frumpy Professor. I found you on John Grays sidebar. This week for no real reason whatsoever (at first) I have been extremely down, more than I have been for a long time. I feel utterly useless, worthless and tired of life. I know that sounds dramatic and my family would be shocked to hear me say it. However, I feel that blogging gives me a purpose in life even if no-one is interested in what I have to say. I am glad I found you today. I feel less lonely.
