Wordless Wednesday 65 – Photo A Day, Week 32

ansel-adams-5013

Hi friends. I’m sorry this post is late. I realize it’s Friday, but I didn’t want to wait another week to post this.

I have been feeling down since May, I just can’t seem to bring myself out of this funk I’m currently in. I’ve been avoiding the news, immersing myself in nature and comedic movies, but nothing seems to be helping.

Anyway, I hope to get back to blogging on a regular basis again. I miss writing, but I find myself just staring at the laptop, unable to form the words. I can’t remember the last time I felt this low this long.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Love & life lessons,

Kristian


Day 219

In the words of my darling husband, he “George Baileyed” me. I’ve been feeling down for about a month now as I explained previously, so Neil reached out to some family members telling them I could use a pick-me-up. I received some snail mail with words of encouragement, poems, and of course, love! ❤

Day 224

My amazing cousin sent me this care package, along with a lovely card written about her understanding of my struggles. She knows my heart and she is just as compassionate, and I love her for it!! ❤

One of the best sunsets I’ve seen in a while. I could have stayed there for hours! if only the colors lasted that long.

    Your skies are exquisite! I have not seen a sunset for a long time. I have been coming home, showering and going to bed before sunset ever arrives.
    The accumulative of tiredness, worry, sadness…they all take a toll. I find this time of year hard. But I find just as it gradually creeps up on me, it also gradually lifts – I can’t rush it. But gradually…I’ve come to accept that just as the seasons change, my feelings will go through cycles. There will be bleak times when the wind is tormenting. There will be times when I start to feel some excitement and I push forward and new things grow in my heart and my life. There will be times when I am verdant and lush and people will want to be near me to hear me singing and laughing. There will be times when parts of my seem to be shrivelling up and I am afraid that I will lose who I am as I sink. But so far…just as the seasons conquer each other, these emotions run their course (and I let them) and then they fade away until another time.

    It is wonderful to have loved ones who care what you ❤

      I am very much the same, Mel. I can relate. I know this too shall pass, it’s just holding on. I can only hope that whatever is on the other side of all of this is amazing. I am desperately holding onto hope!

      I am blessed for sure! ❤

    Well, this explains why your are so absolutely in love with your hubby. Such a thoughtful and caring man! Definitely one of a kind. I feel your pain and miss your words, but there are times when you must focus on yourself before you worry about being there for others. I wish there were magical words that I could say to help, but there are not. So, let me say this, you are a shining star, a vibrant women, a loving wife, a great writer, and to us lucky few, a great friend! No matter how you may feel on the inside, you are still all those things to the rest of us. I am sending you a ton of love and my wishes for you to stay strong and push through to the other side. Always here (you have my number), if you need me in any way! Love, love, love you! ❤🌹💕😘💕🌹❤

    Reblogged this on Notes and commented:
    Instead of the word “Feeling down”, I use the word “Feeling paused”. In my case, that paused moment (since a decade now) has been so serene, peaceful and sort of when the whole universe stood “still” just like the last sunset photo in Kristen’s blog. With age and experience, we grow from a child to youth to middle age and of course, old age. Sometimes that “pause” is result of that growing. We have started to feel differently about things or we can actually stop, pause and smell the roses first time. There is a change coming in our own lives, or things around us are changing too quickly for our souls to catch up. Things that look insane to others (as in wasting time) i.e. staring at sunset for hours, looks so rewarding and beautiful to our own selves. It is probably time that we have started to give some importance to people’s thoughts, their suffering, their joys as compared to us living a careless life in our youth. I can continue to run my mind in countless directions but when it comes back to me, it is the same “paused” moment that I find myself in. And sometimes this very moment feels so wonderful that I don’t want to “play” life, I want also to be lost in that one “paused” moment. There are things above and beyond our control and I prefer to throw myself to the mercy of those huge waves of turbulence in the stormy waters of ocean. After all, I am already a fish who has been in the ocean since like forever. What else could this angry ocean do to me beyond shaking things around me for a while until the storm subsides? 🙂
