Well, it’s here.  Usually I’m feeling very optimistic at this time of year but lately, silly little things have been getting me down.  It happens. If Britney Spears could get through 2003, I’m sure I can do 2013.  Lucky for some, eh?

Hey Thelma! I'm having a hard time too.. but we have to focus on the positive things in our life and never loose faith in our inner strength. I'm sure this phase will pass soon, plus i sense 2013 will be amazing. A big hugh :)

Hi Thelma,

Hang in there.. this too will pass. If we didn't have the difficult times, we wouldn't appreciate it when something good happens.

It's been a busy holiday and I'm off to work already. My house guests are still here and there's been too many excesses so I'm feeling kinda partied out.

Do something fun today and this too will pass!

Ah sweetheart, I'm sorry to hear that. You're right, happens to us all - but doesn't make it any easier while it's happening to you. How long are you home for? Hope you start to feel better soon xo

haha cool illustration.. I guess we all have ups and downs.. I'm usually very pessimistic most of the time, that's just how I am... so I'm used to the feeling.. all I can say is do stuff that you enjoy.. it will take the bad/down mood away for a while.. hang in there! all the best for 2013
