The potted muscari are just coming into bud. It really is a hopeful sign when new shoots start springing up. Roll on spring!
I have been pondering recently for the reasons as to why I have been so down. I think it has a lot to do with reading and hearing about bad news stories and the medias unrelenting tales of woe and despair. I know that horrible things happen in this World but I don't need a constant drip, drip of gloom and doom everyday. I also know that lots of good things happen in the World and I am going to start to focus on happy things.
Whilst I was pondering (shouldn't do too much introspective thinking when feeling like this!) I started to think of how others may view my blog. Is it a true representation of who I am? Well, I am introspective and quite a private person but there is nothing really to show that I actually have a sense of humour although you wouldn't think it reading my posts some days! I am going to try and inject a bit more humour into my posts in the future.
As an antidote to the misery of the news and the gloomy weather and despairing story lines in Soaps etc, I am going to actively seek out laughter. I love to watch a good comedian or comedy show (I love the Big Bang Theory) and I am going to belly laugh until tears of laughter spurt from my eyes!!! Now there's an image!
