Good Morning, My Peeps.
All Swell In Your Worlds?
Honestly, Things Have Been A Bit Odd Of Late Within My Own.
I’ve Been Going Through A Bout Of Some Pretty Extreme Personal-Depression That Has Been Sapping And Corking My Creative Juices. It Happens To Us All At Some Point, Or At Least Happens To Those Of Us Intelligent Enough To Understand Our Own Situations.
My Life Situation Just Plainly Sucks.
I’m Trying To Take The High-Road. I’m Trying To Keep My Head Above The Water I Seem To Endlessly Be Treading. I’m Trying To Carry-On In The Only Way I Know How.
I Just Haven’t Felt Like Writing.
Not. At. All.
As I Said To Someone Earlier…
“…I pick-up my pen, I put it to the paper, but nothing comes out. I’ve just been so caught-up in personal emotional BS that everything else has taken a back seat, so to speak. I know I’ll find my voice again… …it’s just not at this moment.”
And Then It Happened, My Peeps.
I Awoke This Morning, And The First Thing I Wanted To Do Was Sit Down And Start Writing.
So, Here I Am. Writing To Y’all, Hoping Things Come-Out Right.
I Truly Have A Ton To Say, Yet Know I Can’t Say Most Of It.
Not Yet, Anyway.
Because, I Don’t Rightly Know How Some Things Are Going To Play-Out.
It’s Hard To Write About Something When All The Facts Aren’t In.
I Just Know I’m Unhappy.
Honestly, Truly Unhappy.
Not In Every Aspect Of My Life, But In Enough Of Them To Cause All Of This Mental/Emotional BS.
Life Continues To Throw Me Curveball After Curveball, And I’m Really Starting To Get Sick Of It.
Sadly, There’s Nothing I Can Do About That Other Than Continue To Take It All.
But, Changes Are Coming.
Things Are Happening.
While My Personal-Opinion Of Myself May Not Be Very High At The Moment, I’m Starting To Figure My Shit Out.
I’m On The Verge Of A Major Break-Out, Or So It Feels.
While Some Might Crack Under So Much Personal Pressure, I’m Fighting Back.
I’m Fighting Back Hard, My Peeps.
Life Is Giving Me Both Barrels, And I’m Doing Everything I Can To Give ‘Em Right Back.
What Else Can I/Could I Do, My Peeps?!
I’m Not Going To Lay Down And Die.
I’m Not Going To Let The World Rape Me, And Take Away What Little I Do Have.
I’m Not Going To Stop Fighting My Fight.
I Just Don’t Want Y’all To Worry About Me.
I Don’t Want Y’all To Waste Your Time And Energy On Something So Frivolous.
I’ll Get It All Worked-Out.
It’s Just Going To Take Some Time.
Lucky For Me, I Have All The Time In The World.
So, We Shall See How This All Pans-Out.
If You Wanna Cross Your Fingers For Me (you know, for good luck and such) Then You’re More Than Welcome To Do So.
Down, But Not Out.
… … …
The Other Purpose Of This Little Posting Is To Celebrate Something Very VERY Special.
I Just Reached Another Personal Milestone With This Little Blog.
Which Milestone Is That, You Ask?!?
Put THAT In Your Collective Pipe And Smoke It, My Peeps!!!
Seeing That Made Me Smile Like Nobody’s Business, Fo SHO!
I Always Kinda Figured I’d Make It To This Stage, Or At Least Did At One Point.
Then I Started Sloughing-Off.
Once That Happened, I Wasn’t Sure I’d Ever Make Here.
But YOU, My Peeps, YOU Kept Coming Back.
New People Kept Showing Up.
The Blog Perpetuated.
We’re Over 1,000 Strong, Now, Kiddies.
Isn’t That Just F-in’ A-MA-ZING?!?!
I Totally Agree.
I’m Going To Leave You With The Song Of My Morning.
I Don’t Rightly Know How Relevant It Is To My Before Mentioned Topics, But It’s The Song I’m Addicted To, Today.
Ever Heard This One?
“YOU GOT IT“
by ROY ORBISON
I Knew A Lot Of You Would Know It, And I Was Banking The Bulk Of You Would Enjoy It.
It’s One Of ROY ORBISON‘s More Peppy, Upbeat Numbers.
I Know, Most Of You Have Only Heard Me Play His Slower, Slightly More Depressing Tunes…
…But NOT Today.
I Do Sincerely Hope You Enjoy It, Kiddies.
And THANK YOU.
THANK YOU For Continuing To Support Me…
…To Support This Blog…
…To Give Me An Outlet Where I Can Honestly Get Something Back.
I Derive So Much Pleasure From Talking To Y’all, Reading Your Work, Exchanging Comments, Ideas, Etc Etc.
Honestly, I Love It.
Fo F-in’ SHO, My Peeps.
😉 😀 😉
It’s FRIDAY, Kiddies.
The Weekend Is Upon Us.
Let Us All Try To Make It A Good One.
I’m Going To Do My Very Best, And Trust Y’all Will Be Doing The Very Same.
Take Care, My Peeps.
Try To Be Good.
See Me Soon, And Talk To Me Sooner.

You’ll work through this and be better for it one day, I know it. You’ll look back and wonder how you ever doubted yourself. Best wishes to you.
Sometimes, it’s very VERY easy to let doubts creep into our minds. In that respect, I’m no different. But, I think you’re right. I’ll come out of all this and be much better-off for it.
Thank you for the kind words and wishes, Julie.
Hang in there…things will get better. I have Stage III cancer and am trying to stay positive. Love your baseball posts.
I’m hangin’ in there, Sir.
YOU DO THE SAME.
Staying positive in a bad situation is nearly impossible sometimes. But, if you can do it with what you’re going through, then I have no reason not to keep trying.
And thank you, Sir.
My blog has had over half a million page views, but I am nowhere close to having 1,000 followers…I may have 50 or so. Your writing encourages readers to follow your blog. Congratulations on a great job.
Congratulations my sweet cub. It will be okay. Keep writing. Get those thoughts out of your head. Share them with the world. Stream of consciousness writing is what you do best. Love you and congratulations on 1000 followers. XOXOXOXOXOXOXO
Thank You, Dearest.
I love you, also.
Excellent, honest and gut-wrenching post. You’ll get through it, and you’ll write. My fingers are crossed for you and I’m sending lots of strength to you. Don’t forget to take care of yourself!!
Thank You So Very Much. I Appreciate All The Strength Anyone Can Send Me, So Thank You.
And I Never Forget To Take Care Of Myself…
…I Just Don’t Do It A Lot Of The Time.
But, I’m Trying Harder, And I’m Getting Better. 🙂
A trick I learned while dealing with depression: Every once in a while, check yourself. Are you treating yourself the way you’d treat your best friend? Just keep it in mind, and try to get good, solid rest. I care about you!
I just emerged from a “non-writing” period myself. Hard to work full-time, be a caregiver and write, but I’m now back in the writing state of mind!
1,000 followers, whoop whoop! 😀
YAY For Being Back In The Writing State-Of-Mind!
I’m Hoping To Continue Rolling Along With Mine.
I Hope I Hope I Hope. 😉
1,000!!! WOOT!!! 😀
Congrats, man! You have 1,008 as of this writing!
I’m even more glad to hear you’re coming out of something. Awesome, bro!
Broseph, I’m Already Up To 1,016!!! WOOT!!!
Please accept this award. Love you dearest one.
