In a Fog

Well, blogging all November didn’t go so hot.  Actually, not much in the second half of November went so hot.  The election threw me for a loop.  The horrible things people are doing in the name of the president-elect continue to make me depressed.

I have a long history of depression and I’m not managing it too well right now.  I need to go exercise.  I need to stay off Facebook.  I need to do some yoga.  But, I haven’t.

Tomorrow if my favorite holiday of the year.  I’m going to be grateful and then I’m going to get to work.

My Favorite Holiday

Growing up Halloween was my favorite holiday.  When I was young, I’d decorate my mom’s house and yard, get dressed up, go to haunted houses, and just generally enjoy the season.  As a college student I’d go out with friends while wearing risque costumes and party the night away.

As I’ve gotten older, though, Halloween has waned in my holiday popularity.  I love to dress up my son and see the photos on Facebook of my friends’ and family’s kids, but overall I don’t enjoy it like I once did.  I think a big reason for that is I no longer feel like I need to hide or change, which is really what Halloween is all about.  I’ve also realized that if I want to be someone different, I can do that now, I don’t need to wait for Halloween.

Now my favorite holidays are Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.  Celebrating being grateful and seeing family and friends is a much better place to be.
