I'm tired

I think I'm getting down because I don't have a job and I don't really have any prospects. This is not good. For my finances or for my butt. I get down, I don't move, I eat. Definitely not good. I don't know what I'm going to do. Starting to freak out just a little bit.

You would not believe my strong aversion to candy now. I can't even look at a piece of candy without getting all creepy. That headache was so bad I don't ever want to have anything like that again. I don't know exactly what caused it and I may be laying the blame on candy for no reason, but ugh!!! I never want that to happen again.

Irene had a very good post yesterday about the Obama inauguration. I watched and thought it was good. Anyone who reads this blog knows I'm not an Obama fan but I do hope he proves me wrong. I hope he fixes everything and I will shout from the rooftops how wrong I was about him. But that's not the reason I brought this up. Monday was Martin Luther King Day and if I remember right he once said, "....I have a dream, that my young children will be judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin." I hate to be the bearer of bad news but by constantly pointing out that Obama is not white people are perpetrating the racism. By this point in time we should be color blind. That would make this a really momentous occasion. Instead all the news people talked about was America's first African-American President. People, get over yourself.

Okay, enough about Obama. I'll be happy to just wait and see what happens. Right now I'm unemployed and bordering on depression.

I am happy to meet you - love your words and your beautiful blog.

About fatigue, headaches & depression ... I know quite a bit about all 3! Learned the hard way, the trial & error way.

Depression is anger turned inward. The best way to turn outward is through service work. I walk dogs at the SPCA 3 hours a week and that always lifts my spirits. I bring my best to them because they deserve it. I've walked in there with migraines and walked out with miracles.
(There are lots of ways to help out there -- kitty petting, admin, fund-raising ...)

About headaches - spent 2+ years working toward a solution for my husband's debilitating migraines. The best solution is a book called "Heal Your Headache." It has been transformational for both of us.

As to fatigue -- I have healed myself of a number of fatigues including adrenal fatigue. Please visit my blog for weekly energy boosting tips. A recent post "Best time of the day for ..." is really working well for me and helping me be more productive and relaxed in my personal and professional world.

The more relaxed and open we are ... the faster new opportunities come in.

I can tell from this blog that you are a dynamic, talented and intelligent woman. The perfect opportunity is being created for you now.

Hugs to you,

I definitely agree with you about racism. It'll only be gone when there is no surprise or anything special about minorities being in positions of power.

The end is near

 of summer vacation that is. Teachers are due back next Monday, which means this is my last week of freedom. It's been a good summer. I&...
