I've Got That Old Feeling....

I feel it coming...that old feeling.  It's that time of year again.  It hits me between the eyes.  I feel down, out of sorts for no reason whatsoever.  There's a temporary change in our family's routine.  I'm thrown for a loop.  The season threatens to overtake me.  

But do I respond in all the right ways?  

Staying up too late watching real estate and cooking reality shows
Not exercising enough
Eating too much of the wrong things

I know all these things just make the situation WORSE, but I do it anyway....

At least I can take a step back and recognize it.  For now, I'm moving my bedtime back to a decent hour.  Trying to eat better and exercise more.  Trying to make more time for reading my Bible and prayer.  Watching less TV on hulu.  

It's not as bad as it sometimes feels, I remind myself.  I'm getting out of bed every morning, interacting with my children, doing school, making sure everyone is fed and clean.  We're pushing through and by some standards, we are thriving.  

It's just that old feeling....

One of my favorite scriptures and songs:  

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 43:2
