Lucky me!

                Couple days ago, I found myself down in the dumps. Figuratively, of course. Some words, spoken by a loved one,  hurt me badly. They may not have been uttered with an intention to hurt. Also, I may have been in a bad state of mind, for, I ended up bruised. It may have been the doings of my crazy hormones, that seem to be playing havoc with my mind, of late. Now, here is something I would like to ask my girlfriends, who have been through the forties, been there, done that. Do hormones really do that to you? At this age? Leave you all emotional, sentimental, extra touchy and vulnerable? 
            It is something that I really want to know. It sure will be a solace knowing I am not alone. Of course, I know I am not alone. Every one goes through this phase. At times, I wonder, am I nearing the big M?!  And, if I am, then, how long do I have to travel through this horrid phase? I really need all the help, the feedback, I can get. Because there are days when things are BAD!
       Okay, so, as I was saying, that is how I was, couple of days back. Depressed, disturbed, and feeling worthless; yearning to speak to  my best friends, who at that hour, seemed unavailable. However, as luck would have it. one of them was there, on FB. All I asked of that kind soul was to give me a pep talk, no questions asked. And, I got what I wanted! A few words uttered by my lovely friend, at the exact moment, totally changed my emotional state. I had a smile, coupled with a few tears of relief. I was overwhelmed! And, felt so lucky to have someone, when  I was in dire need. A big, warm hug  to you, P! 
       And, then I came across an apt quote, which I dedicate to all of my besties! 
    Here it is…

         And, then, I also came across another quote, posted by a fellow blogger, which seemed to be written and posted just for me!I have saved it, and am going to visit it every now and then. In fact, I think you all must save it and read it every time you are in the same position I was in — down in the dumps! 
     Here it is…

          Today, I  got a call from another of my bestie, who gave me a piece of her mind, asking me to dump all the feelings of worthlessness in the garbage bin, pat my back, and move ahead, with a smile. And, I am doing just that. And, feeling so much better.
          And, thanking my lucky start, for blessing me with my ‘darlings’!

  1. we always tend to blame it on hormones, but that's not the case always. Talk, write… but don't ponder so much on it 🙂
    I totally loved the Hey You quote that Sid had shared. So uplifhting 🙂


  2. I think mood swings are part of all our schedules and when they hit us, well, it's difficult to look up..But there are people , as you say, could be miles away but know what to say exactly to make us happy


  3. Those awful mood swings! I feel them too and know exactly what you are talking about. I loved that quote Sid shared as well, even copy and pasted it on my own wall and to my daughters. It was awesome! ♥


  4. Shilpa, hormonal changes or not, focus on what you want as you will create with your mind your circumstances. And know that there is someone even thousands of miles away to support you wherever you're at! 😉 Love that quote! 🙂 ❤
