I’ve been battling a bit of depression lately. I get this way every fall and winter. I feel like I didn’t have enough time in the sun and fret the cold dreary days upon us. I’m often so tired I just want to pass out. Plus, I’m just kind of feeling defeated with every day stuff on top of that.
So I did something nice for myself and got my nails done. We put this burnt sienna color on and I felt like it was a bit gloomy although pretty. I thought it needed something to brighten it up and I instantly thought of a sunflower. I LOVE sunflowers. We found a cool sunflower pattern and put it on plus added some sparkles cause well, sparkles make me happy. They turned out awesome. For the last few hours I kept looking at them thinking they felt familiar. Then it dawned on me….My favorite sundress from when I was in my early 20’s!! I even remembered a pic I had of it. I’m still struggling with depression even with pretty new nails. When I think of how far I’ve come, since the photo of me and one of my closest and oldest friends, I’m reminded. I’m reminded I always come out on the other side of things, of how many triumphs I’ve made, and how much I have to be grateful for. So whether or not this was a subconscious choice in pattern or a total God shot…no matter what, I’m going to be ok and this too shall pass.
