Lack of inspiration

I’d like to thank my dear friend Jen for calling me out and inspiring me to write this post.

I’ve been undertaking some rather nasty financial issues the past couple of days and found myself wallowing in self-pity. Not an attractive look for anyone, and definitely not a healthy habit for me to indulge in. I’d like to say that this will be the last time I succumb to the blues, but I’m trying to live honestly, and I know myself well enough to know that the next bout could be right around the corner. What I will say is that I will redouble my efforts to be aware of such behavior and take steps to avoid it.

That being said, on to the beauty of the day. As I write this, a twitter-pated bird is doing his best to annoy me with his warbling, whistling song. He had almost succeeded. Then, I started writing.

The evening light is glowing through the trees and dappling the ferns I can see in my back yard. I truly am blessed to be living where I am. It is healing place for me, when I take the time to appreciate it. Old growth forest is so calming and majestic. If only I was a better photographer, I’d share with you all the sights I treasure. As it is, any photo I took would not do the scene justice. I hope this post finds you all well, loved, and finding your own beauty in your day.
