    I have had the same hairstyle and colour for years, and the same wardrobe. I think it contributes to me feeling bleh.
    Maybe you could try mixing that up a bit?

    I get that like when I don't have a "project" going on. I have to have something to research, something to plan, something to be excited about. I hardly finish any of the projects lol. I often lose interest and move onto the next project, but as long as I'm in the throws of planning something new, I'm ok!

    Are you keeping busy? How old are your children?
    I found myself feeling like that when my kids were young...pre school age. It felt a bit groundhog day...
    Now my kids are older I find myself so busy I don't have time to feel mopey, I have time for my friends to get out and am heavily involved in my kids sports, which is very social and rewarding. I am a single mum and work part - time.

    I can understand how many people feel that way. I don't want to make light of the situation, but really it is mostly just because you are thinking that way. Now that I am a grandmother, it is so easy to see the joy and excitement in my grandchildren, so that energises me. I remember feeling like I was just going through the motions, each day, day after day, but then we might have visitors, or go see some friends, or even just take the kids out for the day, and my smile would return. Often it is just the frame of mind, and if you choose to stay there, the mood will be much harder to lift. I don't want to ignore those that might have a depression or anxiety, if this a serious problem for you, I give you my love. marie.

    I understand that at one stage in your life you would have been a parent but as a grandmother i dont think its the same, You get to hand the children back at a certain point. You get to have a break/full night sleep/go visiting with out children in tow/have appointments with a hairdresser etc.

    yes, of course that is all true. but I was just saying , how we look at the world. If we try to just find the wonder that children see, we can enjoy the everyday things. I definately had my time as a parent, and I know I didn't often find that joy, and I did often struggle with the boredom and frustrations. Looking back, I can see that a lot of it was just how I was thinking. Now, I can see, that changing your thoughts is the easiest thing, changing your circumstances is a whole other story. hugs, marie.
