When Life Interrupts....

I'm melancholy today. I can't put my finger on exactly why, but it is wrapping its hands around me and trying to squeeze the joy right out. Why.... Why now.... Why as the gray of winter begins to be pushed out by spring's bluer skies and warmer temperatures? Why now when my work load begins to shift, and my work bag gets lighter?
It makes me want to shake my head like a dog shakes its body after a bath. Shaking the cobwebs out of my head.... Shaking the blues right out of my being.

How lovely to see a post from you Roban, although a melancholy one.

It is certainly strange how sadness can enter our lives when we least expect it, it is known as the mid-life blues. We all go through it and be certain of this though my friend, it is only temporary and it will pass as quickly as it arrived.

Hope you will continue blogging as I miss our interactions.

Take care and big heart hugs.

Sometimes when I am sad, when I have just need to shake off the blues, I find I just need to dance. This is for you.

Lisa Denise,

Thank you for reaching out to me! I have really missed being here, too. I moved to a new school two years ago and have found it extremely difficult to find time to blog. This past year was even more time-intensive at work.... I hope to make changes this year and find a better balance. I'm on Instagram - robanjohnson - and would love to see you there. The blogging community has been on my mind lately, and I hope to be back here sometime in the future.

Thanks again! It's nice knowing that you have missed me.

I was feeling very melancholy a couple of weeks ago Roban and couldn't shake the blues. It was very distressing so I decided to go back onto Facebook (which I hadn't been on for 2 years). I needed to reach out to my friends whether they lived in Australia or overseas.

I was so relieved to be welcomed back, and you know what I haven't been melancholy since.

I hope all is well in your world Roban, I miss interacting with you via this blog.

Big hugs my friend
