A Season without Music
Welcome Back. No, not you... you never left. Welcome back to me :) It has been a long fall and winter season and I have not been on the top of my game. In all honesty, while I've been able to keep all the necessary tasks of the farm and family life going, my desire to share about life has been at an all time low. This past winter I really struggled with feeling depressed for the first time in my life. I did not want to talk, write or connect. My interest in things that once brought me pleasure dissipated; reading, studying, drawing, writing and music simply held no joy. Overwhelmed with feelings of sadness and anxiety, I was unable to find the words to talk about the farm and life in general.
I sought help through counseling and my doctor. My amazing family, especially my husband, stuck with me through this tough season and offered me love and encouragement when I needed it most. I am glad I was able to open up and admit I was in need, I am glad that I had great support and I feel so blessed to have so many good friends. I want to read, connect and listening to music again AND I did happen to make a lot of short videos over the winter that I hope to utilize over the coming months, I took pictures and as the season of renewal and hope bursts on the scene I am feeling so much more alive. I look forward to once again finding the words and the energy to share the joy that is Singing Wren Farm.
