Sleeping with Bread - Recovering

It would be fair to say this last week has been a difficult one. I managed to catch a bad virus that has been going around at work and then just when I started to turn the corner, Mother Nature paid a visit and robbed me of all remaining energy. I don't really want to complain because people have it much worse off (what with natural and man-made disasters and all) and I really haven't been that sick in some time so I'm just going to be thankful it's almost over.

I've also had a hard time mustering up interest in just about anything I do. Maybe it's the winter blahs but everything seems like such a bore. Maybe you know what I mean; that "Is this all there is?" feeling? I've just got to keep keepin' on and this too shall pass.

Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.-- Buddha

I'm going to be patient with myself and my less than positive mood and pray that its season is a short one.

On a brighter note, we are beginning a new week, most of the bills are paid, and the temps are creeping up. Being sick last week, I did not get to the art projects I had planned and didn't complete a Full Moon DreamBoard for the full moon on the 9th, but I can get started on those projects now.

My words don't sound very uplifting or inspiring today but I'm satisfied with being at least a step above whining. I find sustenance and inspiration in the blogs I read so I think I'll pay some of them a visit before calling it a night.

Have a beautiful week.


  1. Pam,
    I think you and I had a VERY similar week - virus included! Cheers to your heart and sending creative inspiration your way!

  2. Oh dear.....I do hope feeling better is getting to happen. I know what feeling 'yuck' can do to my attitude--and vice versa....

    The good news is spring IS coming--AND we get to pick the attitude we have regardless of the circumstances.
    I know, I know....sometimes I just wanna drop kick those fairies. LOL

    *sending healing thoughts*
    Feel better soon!!!

  3. I'm so glad you are joining us for Sleeping with Bread. Even though I am hosting the meme, right now life is so busy I am not always posting or commenting. I do usually read them all, though. I think my brain is so amped up on grad school that stopping to write a thoughtful comment.

    I do relate to this particular post. Finding enthusiasm for life can be difficult for me sometimes.

    Have a good week (what's left of it!)


Thank you for your comments. They certainly brighten my day!
