    ooooooo i got days like that...when i just think i cant do it anymore...when it seems so overwhelming and there appears no end to it? you just want to lay down and die?

    you can indulge in it or get over it....simple as that.....indulging is just gonna put you a wee bit more behind....(i am about 2 months behind in something due to this)

    but ya know...some days i just do what it takes to get thru it....i did a primal scream in the yard the other day...i wanted to do more but it echoed up the hollar i was afraid someone would call the police...

    remember dont make any major decisions during this down time....for example...dont divorce the man....or shot him...i know it seems like a good idea at the time but take it from me....it just doesnt go well....dont get your hair cut either.....so there you have it...my advice....

    dont kill anyone and dont cut your hair.....gives you a lot of room in between

    Poem: KEEP A-GOIN’




    KEEP A-GOIN’



    Author: by Frank L. Stanton (1857-1927)

    If you strike a thorn or rose,
    Keep a-goin'!
    If it hails or if it snows,
    Keep a-goin'!
    'Taint no use to sit an' whine
    When the fish ain't on your line;
    Bait your hook an' keep a-tryin'--
    Keep a-goin'!

    When the weather kills your crop,
    Keep a-goin'!
    Though 'tis work to reach the top,
    Keep a-goin'!
    S'pose you're out o' ev'ry dime,
    Gittin' broke ain't any crime;
    Tell the world you're feelin' prime--
    Keep a-goin'!

    When it looks like all is up,
    Keep a-goin'!
    Drain the sweetness from the cup,
    Keep a-goin'!
    See the wild birds on the wing,
    Hear the bells that sweetly ring,
    When you feel like singin', sing--
    Keep a-goin'!

    let it build for a day and then when the cloud least expects it roar at it will all your might.

    Kiki...while I undestand those times, those feelings, I rarely have them.
    I have the serendipitous ability to always see a situation that could be worse than the one I find myself in.
    It's almost as though I'm making a deal with destiny, and getting the better end.
    I hope you can do the same.

    When the black cloud is winning, it's time for me to move outside of self and help others. I have a black cloud of killing in wartime. The only thing that really helps when this cloud encircles me, and I get to remembering my part is to go out and volunteer - at the Newton soup kitchen, etc. . . When I am serving others who are far worse off than me, I seem to forget my own issues for quite some time.

    I'm in the same boat for a few too many reasons. Courage, Camille; this too shall pass.

    The kindness is just what I needed. I will wallow today and move forward tomorrow. IRL, I am the strong one everybody goes to - sometimes I need to lean too.

    Thanks lovely strangers across the HTML plain...:)
