A Heavy Mind

My mind feels heavy, that's what I've come to after much thought.

I mean, I want to post about cursory things like how much I love the chevron pattern, or how I fancy peppermints on pies.

But, I can't.  My mind is heavy.

And it's 'cause of the economy and autism.

For one, it's hard being a small-business owner.  I don't ever talk about it, but it is.  And a depression doesn't make things easier!

Throw in the people that work for you, that are effected daily by the economy, that you truly care about, and want only good things for...

No pressure, right?


It's just hard to keep people's spirits up when everything is down.

On a different note, there's also much I haven't shared about the autism journey.  For one, my relationship & how it's changing.  How we're coping at times differently with special needs.  How it hasn't been easy, the adjustment.

But I'll save that for another post.  Just know, I'm about to go there.

Right now, I'm thankful for Jane Austen film adaptations.

(Because I'm going to light a candle and watch Emma.)

No.  Well, yes.  But, really...

I'm thankful for my happy sleeping baby, my man I don't always agree with but love, and our warm, little home with flowers in the kitchen.

What more do I need?  (Besides a vote!)

  1. These heavy times. I'm glad you have some flowers in the kitchen to add some brightness. And a little Jane Austen never hurt either.

  2. Jane Austen fixes lots! Thinking of you and your little family

  3. It's not easy, and that's part of the journey, but it's only one part of many victories to come. I promise you that it does get better. Or maybe you just get better at handling it? All I know is that there will come a day when you look back on this part of your autism journey and marvel at your own strength,and you'll feel such awe at how much you've accomplished. I promise you that. Hang in there.

  4. Thinking of you often. Jane Austen adaptations are always a good choice :)

  5. You are the poster girl for positivity... a rough day can come and go, and yellow daisies always make mine better... thinking of you..

  6. Thinking of you and sending healing thoughts your way! These are difficult times--the one phrase that always helps me is "This too shall pass." It reminds me that the dark days don't last forever. Hang in there!

    Hugs, Jenn

  7. It seems as though the world has a heavy mind here lately. I hope you find a little bit of peace of mind soon. Hugs, hugs!!!


Thanks for taking time to share your thoughts. I love 'em all!
