Winter for me isn't just dark literally, it also puts me in a dark place mentally.
The cold, the snow and ice make me feel trapped and depressed.
Fear and anxiety of traveling on the ice covered roads limits my social life and I spend my days struggling to stay positive.
Illness and age have changed me. There was no fear or anxiety when I was young. Winter never held me back or put me in a dark place. I loved the solitude of living in the woods, but since I no longer work I feel like the solitude is closing in on me.
Creating these journal pages helps me to keep things in perspective. I paste my feelings onto paper, place them in my journal and try to leave them there. On days when the weather allows, I go out and then there is this blog and your blog and thank goodness for the internet…I so appreciate all of your visits and comments.
Hope your day is filled with happiness!
