Hello Everyone and Happy New Year starting tomorrow. The last three years have been difficult for me but 2013 perhaps most of all. It was filled with challenges, hurt, pain and many many lessons for which I am so grateful for.
I am very lucky to have found a job that will help to get me back on my feet. It is funny…for so much of 2013 I had thought to myself ” as long as I have my computer and my blogging I will be okay” and that is the last thing that was taken from me. My computer crashed and I had no money to get it fixed. I will shortly however so in the meantime I am writing you all a quick post from my work computer to 1) let you know what has been happening 2) where I have been and 3) why I haven’t blogged in a while.
The depression hit me very very hard as I cursed the gods on their unfair treatment of me. I asked “How much do I have to lose before you take pity on me?” Well they answered me….everything that was important to me….including my photo programs that I used daily to work on my photographs with. Once the anger and despair subsided I realized I needed to reevaluate the important things in my life.
Yes…my computer and blogging are very important to me but I needed to get my priorities rearranged.
So here is my new list for the new year:
My home and animals
My financial responsibilities
My financial goals
My life goals and health
In order for me to overcome my depression I must begin to feel empowered instead of victimized and the only way I can do that is by taking charge of my life. So I have begun to do that.
I will be able to fix my computer shortly and replace my photo software and the weather will open and spring will arrive. Its a new year and I am so grateful to be alive to see it.
So in the meantime I will try to post what I can from my computer at work but I just wanted my followers and friends to know what is going on.
For those that follow my photo blog http://www.daysofphotographs.com I apologize for leaving you hanging with my weekly hosted event titled My Hometown. I will be removing that from the event page and hopefully will be able to resume it once I get everything back on track.
I have missed my writing and sharing my photos. I look forward to sharing once again very soon. In the meantime please forgive my absence. It was not of my doing but none the less I will learn and work with it.
Happy New Year Everyone
