Whoa, Day Like This! (3TC)


Today’s prompt: kangaroo, light bulb, taco

I’d had a terrible headache and

Took two aspirin my friend gave me…

Next thing I knew I was on the floor

‘Neath sway of a dimming light bulb

Hovering over me was a humongous

Smiling kangaroo, eating a taco

And singing, “mama said there’ll

Be days like this, there’ll be days

Like this, mama said”…

          • That is a good silver lining to have! I find when I feel down laughter can help a lot. I also find making other people laugh or doing things for them can help me get out of my head. What have you found most helpful in living with your depression? (if you feel comfortable sharing)


            • I agree with you that laughter, and doing things for others are great ways to turn the frown around! It’s also good to keep busy with something–anything! Sometimes I rearrange the furniture (and clean)–it wears me out, but rewards me with a sense of accomplishment. Cooking and baking are also my go-to activities, as are movies and books–either comedies or a story that captivates my interest, refocusing my thoughts. I also love jigsaw puzzles! And my Christian faith is vital to me–reminding me that God cares for me “just as I am”, and that He’s got everything in His capable hands. And of course, writing–I began this new blog to keep me super busy again 🙂
