I am not sure if it’s the changes of seasons, with lower levels of light, or a late summer cold, but I have been having feelings of uneasiness. A bit of sadness, mixed with a bit of anxiety, I think.
I can’t put my finger on it, but it is bothering me bit. Mr.UT tells me I have always felt this way since I first started teaching. Knowing I had to get my classroom ready, do testing, workshops, the first day of school, all made me anxious at this time of year!
I am working at not letting it overwhelm me, just accepting it, and being sure I get outside as much as I can, but the feeling is stronger than last year at this time.
I love fall! I have already seen some leaves changing, the sun rising and setting changes, the smell of decay starting. I love walking in fall, and finding the fall treasures we are given. The colors, the birds flocking, the earth getting ready to sleep.
In other news, Mr. and Mrs. Untipsy just celebrated 43 years of marriage! Yikes! We have no idea how we got here, but we like it! We met in 11th grade of high school, dated for 7 years, then married after college. That is a long time together! We celebrated by going to an indoor flying place! We have so much fun together! I am lucky to have found such a good guy to spend my life with!
Today I know there is nothing to fear, as I know this truth: Everything is always changing.
With A Nap a Day,
On Day 1815,
PS – I was SO happy to read a post from my long time on-line sober sister, Feeling! She just reached her 5 years, and I am close!
