Thankful Thursday:Energy

Weird topic, right?  Energy?

I was one of THOSE KIDS that teachers hated because I never sat still.  Heck, I still don't sit still! The difference is that I am not running around the classroom with scissors making farting sounds with my arm or hand.  Yes, I was THAT kid.  And a GIRL, no less.  The shame of it all. 
I think back now and just crack myself up.  I mean it.  I bet my teachers hated me because not only did I run around the classroom, but I never shut up.  EVER.  (that part I did learn to rein in...amazing how quickly you shut up when someone calls you freckle face strawberry or chicken legs!) hahaha....oh my gosh.

Fast forward to last year when my energy came to a screeching halt.   I think it is because I'd been so sad for so long.  I just kind of got lost in all the sadness of losing loved ones...throw in losing beloved pets and a kid going to college....it was a lot and I guess I just shut down.

But then a couple weeks ago, I felt like DOING SOMETHING for the first time in a long time. As in, I ran around the house like a dervish and got tons of stuff done.  When I sat down I remembered thinking "There you are!"  I was back.  

Which got me thinking about how THANKFUL I am to have my energy level back.  
Then, that got me thinking about people with fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia.  They have awful problems with energy and that leads to depression.  So that got me thinking about depression.

It is such a vicious cycle...just awful and horrible stuff.  

I have always taken energy for granted but it is such a gift to have it, to be truly full of productive energy.  I don't want to ever feel like I felt again....ever.

I am so Thankful for energy.  I much prefer feeling like the energizer bunny than not......

This post has honestly been like a light bulb moment for me ...... I think I know why I've lost that "want to do something " feeling - I'm being dragged down by everything going on.
So glad you're back to yourself ..... gives me hope that I may get back there again too, one day :-)
