Everything is Gonna Be Alright…..

Well well. That is how I am feeling today. Everything is gonna be alright after a few months of feeling like this battered old back of a pickup. Sad. Sad. Sad. I didn’t couldn’t wouldn’t post to the blog cause I felt like I had lost my funny. There were no words. I have been getting lots of inspiration and smiles from old blogs and new blogs and slowly I just felt like well ok everything is gonna be alright. I am just going to let my heart take me where it wants to go when it comes to posting to Under the Oaks and try to get my blogging self inspired. Doesn’t have to always be funny because I don’t always feel funny. Now and then I feel sad and bad. Befuddled too. Angry sneaks in there but you probably won’t be finding my angry self here. Can only imagine how you will be thanking me for that.. πŸ™‚

For this moment, everything is gonna be alright. Yes. Yes it is.

  3. Beautiful editing you did to your photograph…just lovely!
    I think we all as “creative” souls (writers, artists, etc.) seem to go through slumps at one time or another.
    Thank you for taking the time to visit our site these past few months!
    Looking forward to “watching” you follow your heart. πŸ™‚

    1. Katie so glad to hear from you! What is it about blogging that overwhelms us. And then life just wears us out now and then. The older I get the more I need to work at not worrying myself to death. Take care Katie, I think of you often.

  6. Everything WILL be alright! You post whenever you feel up to it. Whether it’s every day or once a week, or whatever…it’s all good. Do what is right for YOU! I also want to say that I appreciate your comments, Pix, and your humor. Not to mention your terrific photos. We’d all miss you if you quit entirely, so hope that never happens!

    I really, really like your new header and the editing on your photo of the back of the old pickup turned it into a work of art!

    Take care, friend!

    1. Aww Thanks Linda. When you wrote your post about being overwhelmed and blogging I just took a big sigh and thought I am not alone. Life just throws some stuff at us. I had a few of those days where I wanted to forget I belonged anywhere. Going thru the everyday-ness keeps me going. Looking forward to April! Hugs back at you!

  10. hey Pix, you are back. everything is already alright, i can see that! πŸ™‚
    just be you – funny, or sunny,
    or glad, or sad
    for a smile or for a while
    deep or cheap
    low or slow
    high or sly
    thoughtful or ….. hmmm, that’s not a good word for rhyming. how about…. or a
    plotful of garden moments or garden gnomes
    or something like that
    or like none of that
     
    in any case, it’s nice to know that you can be you, and that it can be neither here nor there.
    my theory is no point posting what you don’t enjoy
    and if you would like to post something you like
    chances are that others will like it too.
    so here’s to a new year, and here’s to you.
     
    seriously – what a beautiful post. welcome back!

  11. What can I say other than YAY! It’s been wonderful having you visit me and Sam these months while you were taking a break….I think sometimes the “creative” in us needs to take a pause for refueling. Putting pressure on ourselves – who needs it?!?! Blog when you want to – we’ll eagerly read them when you give them to us but do it when you WANT to – then it will stay fun. Sammy and I send BIG HUGS…..and you know we mean it!

  12. Oh Pix, this was such a beautiful post–I had to stop in twice, this time finding some words, I hope.

    When the funny gets blunted, the other stuff comes front and center. Since it’s not as familiar as funny, I find it can be overwhelming–like too many channels playin’ in a TV sales room at full volume.

    I hope the funny sneaks out here and there until it gets to be familiar again, Pix. Your voice is one I miss….

    1. Thank you Laurel. I miss my voice too. Makes me sad. Well , you sure know and understand. The constant state of trying to do the everyday-ness just wears me out. It’s like, Hey! don’t give me one more thing to deal with and let the anxiety beast be gone! What do we do when we can’t find “me” anymore. I do see little glimpses of me but I can’t keep them. All I need is a string of days that behave themselves and give me the peace and funny that used to make me smile. I think I am in charge of making those days how I want them but…. πŸ™‚

      1. Maybe that is key–we are not actually in charge of how those days play out. We can do our best, but sometimes we just gotta take the ride. For me, I’ve learned to string together moments over several days. Or, my new favorite: Big Mister saying: “Hey, you didn’t cry yesterday!”

        Losing the “me”–ah, so much I’ve thought about that Pix. I finally gave in and acknowledged the new me…. There is something exhausting about trying too hard to be the old me–I use up all kinds of energy just faking it. It’s easier this way, if quite painful, to meet the new me.

        I have found this path to be the height and depth of loneliness, too.

        I got knitted slippers from a dear friend and I’m planning to change my gravatar thingie to something modeled on a gravatar that makes me smile every time I get to see it! (Yours, in case I’m being too vague!)

        I hold you in my thoughts, Pix.

        1. Yep Yep take the ride BUT only allow the ride to let it do to me what I want. Kind of like people, we can only allow them to hurt us as much as we allow it to affect us. I don’t know, the older I get the more befuddled I get. I am an overthinker! I will be looking for your new gravatar. I can do my bunny feets now IF I can get it sized and it doesn’t make me crazy. The cat, er bunny is out of the bag.. πŸ™‚ I got to get going, have to go to the kinda big city to get bird food. And Laurel you are pretty much always on my mind.

      2. You are so clear how to keep on, Pix. Some days the bear eats you, as they say. I go to my easel whenever I can and that helps me take the ride….

        Have a good time in the city, girl. Cheeseburger?! hee hee!

  13. Hi Pix, I’m really glad everything is going to be alright for you. It needs to be, right? Things get rough, people get sad or mad or down in the dumps. We need to know it’ll be OK in the long run, though, so we’ve got something to look forward to. I’ve missed you, Pix. I hope we’ll be hearing more from you soon.
