The Sun

I think I experience Seasonal Affective Disorder. I already generally hate the cold and snow of winter (and yes, I do realize I live in Colorado), but the shift in the light is really what gets me.  I love the sun.  I want the sun.  And I want warmth.

I’ve been depressed for months.  Maybe it SAD. Maybe it’s the holidays.  Maybe it’s a chemical imbalance in my brain.  Either way there has been a dark cloud hanging over me for months.

Today it lifted a little bit.  I am sure in part it’s due to the unseasonably warm and sunny weather we have been having here in Denver.  In part its because I finally felt like I could see the light, feel the sun, and I could get myself out.  It was part reading the amazing Brene Brown, and a little John Maxwell.  It was supportive friends and family. It was Andrew, holding my hand the entire time I wasn’t sure of myself.

Today I could see and feel the sun.  And I am thankful for that.
