Did I miss something?
I know people talk about having the blues, the Monday blues and motherhood blues but there is a day assigned to recognize,
Who came up with the concept to celebrate a day of woe?
My thoughts: people who want to capitalize on our misery.
Pharmaceutical companies, people trying to sell us comfort kits or whatever.
I get the whole statistic thing, that it’s the third week in January and financially big organizations and businesses are feeling – mainly pennies no freshly printed notes.
Can, I just put out it on here -that Monday has been the best day of the week for me, out of all the Monday’s in January.
I didn’t focus on my money situation, or if people liked me or if I was anxious. What made my Monday bluesy – Jazzy – full of a spectrum of emotions:
is seeing my Grandma.
Yes, she still has Dementia, she still is bedridden, in a care home but she is not on death’s bed, not in pain and she has been taken off palliative care.
I made her laugh – more than once- just being me!
I held her hand and I felt a bit sad, nostalgic, thinking I should do more.
Wondered about certain people I LOVE who I only get to experience one dimensionally. They are not here anymore.
Monday was blue and pink and yellow and it was a Fun day – it was ONE day of my life.
It wasn’t the saddest day of my life or the happiest.
I love the color Blue. Don’t dress it up and mark as a negative.
We are capable of feeling.
Yes, feeling and responding to others.
We are capable of making connections with others because we can feel and empathize.
What a gift!
Pain, feels like Niagara falls coming down on me. I love watching it. I’m in awe of its power. I don’t like feeling it. It does transform me and is a natural part of me.
Just like being happy is, angry, comical, loud, quiet, bossy, friendly, energetic, sloth-like.
I’m not into blue Monday.
When I feel the blues I listen to the blues.
This song (when it first came out) caused people around the world to commit suicide.
I find strength in this song. People have looked at me and thought ‘she must be deranged’ to find any beauty and comfort in this song,
I don’t feel driven to kill myself when I hear it.
I feel less alone. I feel like I’m not only one who has shit days.
Smurfs aren’t sad? or is it the magic potion they drink that gets them all bouncy and energetic?
I don’t know.
I do know people place a lot of expectations on feeling a certain way because there is a day assigned to feeling shitty.
No, thank you, my moods are not controlled by the media and whoever else comes up with these ideas.
I deal with my emotions – every moment, every hour, every second.
I don’t get to leave to my mind.
If I’m feeling alright on a Monday -no one is going to tell me I should feel differently.
Just a thought on this cloudy Wednesday.
Looking forward to Friday – not because it’s the weekend. I never stop working!
I’m going to meet up with friends I haven’t seen for 8 years.
silly poem alert.
If you feeling the woo of the blues
Take a pint of milk from the cows that cheerfully moos.
Don’t despair – feelings change with random flair
Enjoy the sunshine in your heart, don’t hold up a wall that says beware.
Life is full of ups and downs, smiles and frowns
It’s okay to feel this way. No-ones escaping life with ‘ I faked it better’ crowns.
Remember when you feeling down – you are never alone
Support is here when we are transparent and make ourselves fully shown.
Ha ha! Lame, I know. I don’t care.
