Sunny days sweeping the clouds away

Be Brave, Depression, Love, Musing..., Reboot your life, Smiling, sunshine

The Sesame Street Lyrics, ” Sunny days sweeping the clouds away “, ring true for me this week.  If you look at my blog posts you will notice that they stop when the shorter (less Sun) days start.  Yes, I still function I still go to work and take care of things however I do so with less of a spring in my step and certainly less creativity. Google say’s that it is common for people to become more depressed and sad (seasonal affective disorder)  when the days become shorter and there is less sun exposure.

Our usually sunny St George has had less sun lately and of course shorter days. This week however the sun and warmth came back and after a few good days I found myself creating again. It started small, I took a donation to the local thrift store and shopped around. I found some cool belts and decided I could take them home and find creative and handy things to do with them.  I had seen on Tv where you could cinch up your christmas tree with them before you put it away. I love that idea. I came home and wrapped the beautiful colored one around a glass jar I also got at the thrift store, stuck some greenery in and Bam… A centerpiece with a Ralph Lauren look.

Until spring I will embrace every sunny day that comes and maybe a good dose of Vitamin D and some light therapy will help. (Alaskan sun lamps are great)

Seals & Crofts sang it perfectly in their song Summer Breeze with the words, “A little light a-shinin’ through the window, lets me know everything is alright.

Shine on !
