Great Day

It's after having great days like today, I realise how hard I struggle to keep my depression in check and how badly I've been doing that of late.

This morning the kids and I went to a Pirate birthday party for my good friend's four year old. They all had a ball and everything was thought of - great games, lovely food, nice company.

Afterwards, I dropped the kids home and went over to Scrapbook City, then to my grocery shopping. It was really nice to have some time on my own and I found that I was smiling all afternoon.

I've always loved watching other people. Today I was less annoyed about the number of *stoopid* people who's paths I crossed. I was more amused in the ridiculous manner in which people behave. General cranky people, who would feel better if they just smiled once in a while. The hoon in his car, dangerously weaving in and out, just to end up one car ahead of where he was. There was the guy who ran through/ignored a Give Way sign and nearly wiped me out..... I took my right of way with a big smile. I was also nearly wiped out by an idiot doing 80kph in the 60 zone at the end of my blind street. None of these things worried me today.

I had that excited feeling in my stomach, like something was about to happen. I hope this good feeling will last forever!!

xx S.

Hi Sara - isn't it nice to have some "me" time. I think we need it to keep our sanity.

I am impressed you kept your cool, I said a few choice words after reading about your near misses.

Take care and congrats to John & your family on his 1000th customer - that is truly a milestone.

Enjoy your little ones Sara. Take as much "me" time as you need. You need to do these little things to keep the sanity. Take care.

Depression is an awful villain. I know how much I battle with it, especially now that I have come off meds. Today I am feeling as though that may not be a permanent thing. Not a good day!
Glad you got some U does make a real difference!

Hey Sara,
Just catching up on all blogs. I so understand how you feel but unfortunately when I feel I am having a great day the little demon sitting on my shoulder says "you will cry soon" sometimes he is quite right so I am always wary of "great happiness" taking my meds constantly, always helps lol. Be happy
