Having Yucky Thoughts...and what to do about them

Having Yucky Thoughts...and what to do about them

About the fourth week, I was starting to bore myself!

After my experience of “visiting” with Alex on the beach (when I was down seeing Tamara and Michael), I came home and hit a real downer.  I didn’t have the desire or energy to do anything.  I didn’t even feel like writing anything for my blog.

What’s a person to do when that happens?  I’m a great believer in “going with” whatever feelings or emotions I’m experiencing because I never know where they will lead me.

Therefore, I sunk into my yucky thoughts and feelings.  I reveled in them!  I barely saw anyone, nor did I talk to anyone, if I could help it.  That’s fairly easy to do when you live alone. :-)

Mind you, I had a ton of conversations in my head, which I’m thankful for the fact that no one else could hear.  I tried to tell my doggie Ty how awful I was feeling.  He looked at me with his big brown eyes and yawned!

About the fourth week, I was starting to bore myself!  After a series of pep talks with myself, I slowly started to feel human again.

Then I hit upon a solution.  I was going to do something new and different (for me).  I am going to join an online dating service!

I got all excited and went online, only to discover a major stumbling block – how do I describe myself?

It seems a great many people love “taking long walks on the beach,” and various other activities (that most people like to do).  I don’t want to be like the rest of the crowd.

After fretting about that for a while, I finally put my thinking cap on, and came up with the following:

I’m 70 years of age (I’m not over the hill yet!), a widow, and I have a gorgeous dog named Ty.

Also, I have a blog:

As for writing anything else about myself, I’m stumped.  I mentioned the only description (of myself) that I could come up with, to several friends, and each one I’ve asked has responded with the same answer:  “Go for it.  Try it and see what happens!”  So, that’s what I’m going to do!

Wish me luck!
