The weather has been gorgeous!!! It was so nice this afternoon that I just had to go for a walk. It feels like spring is really, finally on its way. The trees look like they might be budding, I saw birds and chipmunks and squirrels and green grass and the sun.
I'm feeling happier these days, as though a great weight has been lifted from me. I feel like the world around me is fresh and the colours are bright again, and for the first time in ages I'm really feeling like I want to be doing things. All I've been doing for ages now is sitting around watching tv, surfing the internet and accumulating stuff. I can feel that all of that is changing. Finally.
Looking back, I think I've been more depressed than I thought I was. Of course I've had good reason to be sad and depressed - lots of sad things have happened in the last couple of years. Even so, it feels so good to be happy - really happy, and really content - for the first time in a while.
