I have been feeling down in the dumps all day. Pretty much from the moment I woke up this morning, until a short while ago. I have been an outright misery to say the least, and have absolutely no reason why I have been so glum. No matter how hard I tried, I just could not lift my sprits from where they had fallen. There is nothing specific I can point to that would indicate why I have been in such a gloomy mood today. No one has upset me in any real sense, no one has done anything so to speak of, and no one has said anything that would bring me down. Though down I have been.It really has been one of those days where nothing anybody did or said could bring a smile to my face. This just is n’t like me as a rule, though I did get a bit like this a few weeks back when Mercury was in retrograde but when that was the case I was able to explain why things felt a little off course. All you Astrology enthusiasts will completely understand the Mercury in retrograde thing.
However, Mercury is not in retrograde, and won’t be going that way again until May now, so I can’t blame how I am feeling on the Winged Messenger. So what then? Who knows? Not me. I guess I am just having an off day. Maybe I’m tired, overwhelmed by life or just plain grumpy and a little crazy today. I cannot blame any other ‘M’ words either. ‘M’ words…what are they? You may well ask. They are such things as menstruation, menopause, motherhood, men and the ensuing and often likely mayhem connected with words of the ‘M’ variety. No, I cannot blame my mood on the ‘M’ words in life. Been there, done that and have the metaphorical (another M word) t-shirt or m-shirt.to prove it.
So if it’s not an ‘M’ word what is it? I guess it’s just not my day, and today is not the day or maybe today is the day where I just get to be the girl with the curl right in the middle of her forehead, which if you are not familiar with the rhyme goes ,
‘There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very, very good,
But when she was bad she was horrid”.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~
So that was me today. Feeling better now.
Tomorrow is a new day, and I can put today behind me.
