BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
Hang on, people - just hang on a bit longer for me - for yourselves.

Stop & read this RIGHT NOW - you have 3 minutes, just do it.

I was just talking to another dear friend (bringing this to a total of about 5) who feels defeated and sad and burdened with all sorts of things, and it is really beginning to impair the way they function.

It's cyclical, this being defeated thing you're talking about. It's happening to most everyone I know and love right now, and I think it has a lot to do with our collective perceptions about everything going on in our lives. It is also very heavily reliant on the change of seasons that is about to happen, always this time of year that makes people crazy. We're doing all of this unconscious yearing and longing and pining for the final death of winter to go ahead and happen, because our bodies are ready for the rebirth and renewal of spring to cleanse us with its warmth and color. As a result, everything is taken out of context and taken WAY too seriously. We're aggravated and easily annoyed by stuff that normally doesn't get to us like it has lately.

Hold on, it's all about to get a LOT better once the earth starts being nice again. Just hold on a bit longer and try not to take things so seriously. And remember that I love you all, and that if nothing else in this world, I'm your fan, your friend, your cheerleader, a pillow under you when you fall, and a comfortable silence when you just need something and don't know what it is - I'm all of those things and a lot more. Chill out and hang on so you can be this for someone else soon.

Thanks. You're sweet like honey :)

Welcome - and you're a big slice of sugar pie yourself!

You are spot on. I feel I have been living with an extremely heavy cloak which encompasses me and slows my progression as a person. I recently received some supportive news from home which has reenforced me and has helped me to shake this cloak off and finally feel good about myself. I know I still have a HUGE road ahead but now with my maternal family on board as well as my "online" one, I know I can succeed.

Thank you for the words of wisdom.

It's all mind over matter, honey!

Welcome!

Good words. Good words.

I told a good friend of mine basically the same thing the other day... but I've been having trouble following my own advice. It really helps to "hear" it from someone else.

Thank you.

If you needed to hear it, then that was what it was for.

This is a soothing entry. :)

I am at work right now surrounded by pain and confusion and anger.. you have NO IDEA how nice it was to read this.

Thank you.

Hi, I don't know what the LJ etiquette is about commenting on entries of people who are not your mutual friends, but I just had to say that this entry really hit home with me. I have been told by other friends that everything is going to be okay, in a while, but it actually really helped to hear that other people are feeling the same way, and that we're all going to be happier again soon. Thanks!!

This blog is open to anyone that comments and isn't doing so JUST to be an asshole ;-)

And people wonder why I post happily about Spring arriving.
Thankfully, Texas is starting to get some glorious Sunlight.

Keep feeling the love!

Rock on!

As cheesy as it sounds, you're right. Sometimes good things will happen when you least expect them. I FINALLY was hired for a full-time job in my profession after not having one for six years and living off cobbled-together part-time work to pay the bills. Now my biggest problem is being worried about my first day tomorrow (dammit, it never ends, it's always something, lol) - but I'm grateful that has replaced "eating" "living" and "paying for heat" for a change.

Thanks for the pick-me-up.

CONGRATS LOVEY!! That is AWESOME!!

This was indeed a long time coming, and believe me - you've earned this one. Hard part's over - start breathing.

Yay, and all happy things! (I'm sort of surprised you remember, with all the commenters you have to keep up with. I do well if I can keep 10 straight in my head.)

This sounds suspiciously like something the old man on the mountaintop would say ...

thank you! and always give credit where credit is due!

Thank you for this message today, Jude. It is really timely for me, as I am going through a low spot myself right now. I really appreciate your sentiments, and I am going to try to take your words to heart today.

To cheer myself up, I am also going to go get the new Mary Chapin Carpenter album that came out today, The Calling. Get out there and get one for yourself! :)

Thanks babe I need this right now. Love you darling

Sounds like someone ran out of ways to say "you're welcome."

But seriously, though, yeah...it's fucking freezing out (literally) in the morning and by the time I get out of work it's 70+ F outside. This will wreak havoc on anyone no matter what. We've been round and round about misery and how to fix it, but simply realizing that the only way something comes in cycles is if you don't break it and learn from that event how to better not fall into that cycle next time. I love you for helping me see this.

Thing's've been very different between you and I and my other friends (ones that I can truly call friends, not just acquaintances), and that's why I and, I am sure, other people find you near and dear.

We need friend time again soon. I need to unwind and rant some more about stupid people and how much I hate them and for you to tell me how it's never going to change...just to get it off my chest.

Verily much love and appreciation,
JP

Today felt AWESOME - I was in a sleeveless t-shirt and shorts for the first time in months!

I think that with Spring/Summer coming on soon, we'll see a lot more of one another. At least I hope so.

Love and appreciation is reciprocated, my friend ;-)

I thought you were gonna bust out with "The sun will come out tomorrow, so ya gotta hang on till tomorrow, come what maaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!! Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow, you're always a DAAAAAAAAAAAAY AWAAAAAAAAAAY!"

It's hard. Winter doldrums are depleting and most everyone I know is hanging their heads and feeling like hell. (Luckily I am in manic mode right now...) But the buds are on the trees, folks, the geese are coming back, the birds are singing...
just remember, in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow,
lies a seed that, with the sun's love, in the spring, becomes the rose.


(Who's gay now, y'all! :D)

Honestly, watch comedies. Keep away from all the bad news, at least until you feel strong enough to combat it with some high level of serotonin and sunlight. Winter saps hell out of us, it's true. I try to be tender with myself and others this time of year, hug people more, light candles and get cozy and have hot toddies and pamper myself with good wine and yummy soup and crusty bread and warm sweaters and silly movies, or movies about hope and love.

March 20th, Spring Equinox. Ostara, the Pagan holiday to welcome in the season of rebirth and the return of light and warmth. I can't wait.

Wouldn't it be fun to gather round in a nice wooded area and have a giant orgy round the bonfire to celebrate the coming of the spring season? They used to do it in the old days, before priests came round and taught us that sex was icky.

The Biscuit is right; hold on, Spring and all its glory is just around the corner!

love and happiness,
Nina

Thank you. Fortunately, I've been digging in the yard for the past few days and that always makes spring seem closer and keeps my mind off of other things.
7th-Mar-2007 02:33 am (UTC)
YOU just brightened my day, made me less tired and started a song in my heart! Thank you sweetie!
7th-Mar-2007 06:16 am (UTC)
Very well said honey. Being a sufferer (is that a word?) of S.A.D. I know the feeling all too well. The thing is, that most people don't realize that they probably suffer from it in one form or another. Some more than others and so on. You know, I am so glad you posted this, because it made me pause and remember...it's almost here. Spring and sunshine and warm weather is...almost...here. YAY!

Love, Vesta Morgaine
