Fairly good November

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) Winter/Holiday Blues?
Thank god, not this year!!
I was busy enough to not think about loneliness this year.
Used to be, I didn’t like holiday season. There were times I resented many things. My mood fell as the thermometer, felt extremely lonely and unloved.  I felt I was so out of step with the world. Everyone else seemed to be beaming, bursting with holiday spirit.
I’m doing Okay this year.

I think I know why I didn’t fall for SAD this year.

  • I kept my expectations modest.
  • Find things to do on the Internet – http://sf.funcheap.com.
  • Keep busy.
  • Going places alone is a bit nerving, I had to encourage myself “step forward”. Venturing out of my comfort zone, however gingerly.
  • Smile to the world!

Twelve women (included me) went to The Great Dickens Christmas Fair in chauffeured van. I didn’t know anybody in the van. I spent most time with Mary. Accidentally I forgot my wallet in my car. She was so kind and offered her credit card to pay for my purchases. I am a lucky woman because I meet so many nice women.
