It’s official: the monsoon has arrived in my city. And with it, so have my bouts of sadness. Don’t get me wrong, I love a lot of the changes that come with the rains. The winds are cool, everything is green and most importantly, the farmers are safe for another year. What’s not to like, right? Look at this lush view from my window and tell me it does not make you feel alive:
But of course, with the good comes the bad. So quite often, heavy showers and the dull gloomy weather they bring along make me feel blah. Yes, I am one of those people who have SAD aka Seasonal Affective Disorder. Since it rained really hard in the afternoon, that photo at the top should give you an idea of how dull and uninspired I have been feeling ever since. I am literally sad when it rains.
Hardly surprising then that I couldn’t get any work done today. Instead of replying to my emails, I found myself reading heartbreaking news about Princess Diana. How I wish she didn’t have to go through all that pain…no creature should. That worsened my already fragile state of mind and soon I had a throbbing headache, both of which ensured that I take the day off.
As I downed a headache pill with my strongly brewed ginger tea, I caught up on a ton of interesting content online, some of which I had bookmarked previously but hadn’t found the time to peruse. Here are some assorted posts which I thought you would enjoy as well:
Guilt and other feelings aside it felt good not following my to-do list for a change. Emails, articles and everything else in between, I’ll get you tomorrow. Time to wrap up this Debbie Downer of a day with a much-needed episode of Supernatural.
How does the rain make you feel? Do share with me in the comments below.
