A Bit Depressed...  
I always look so forward to December and this time of year, but unfortunately it also brings with it some depression. I've also been thinking alot about Sara (for those new to my f-list, Sara was my beloved sheltie who passed away earlier this year) and my Grandparents more with the holidays quickly approaching. This will be the first Christmas without my Sara in 13 years and I've just been in tears off/on for a few days now. D`:

I know it sounds strange, as this is supposed to be the happiest time of year and in many ways it is, but for me I also get down because it seems to come so fast and then all of the sudden it's over! I can't express how much I love the month of December, seeing all the beautiful decorations, hearing the timeless Christmas carols, baking cookies and wrapping gifts- these things bring me such joy. All the hype and excitement leading up to the big day comes so incredibly fast and then, just as quickly as it got here it comes to an abrupt halt, and I'm left feeling very empty inside. My brother is home for such a short time and I don't know when the next time we'll all be together will be. I'm trying to stay positive and in the moment (which is extremely difficult for me to do), and focus on the fact that he will be coming in on the 21st! Does anyone else go through times like this? Sorry to be so down.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Aww...sorry to hear about your dog. I had a sheltie for 16 years, and he passed just over a year ago. It's weird not having him around sometimes. I've had times when I wasn't feeling too chipper during the holidays, and all the cheerful decorations and carols and such only made me feel worse. You just have to keep in mind that there's always something to be thankful for.

Yeah, it's hard losing an animal, you never truly get over it. I know what you mean, sometimes all the decorations etc. do make make you feel even worse. I do try to be positive. :)

I totally know what you are saying. There is so much build up to Christmas and then boom its over. After Christmas is an odd feeling.
I guess the best thing you can do is try and stay positive. *hugs*

Many congrats on the approval!! =)

You're definitely not alone in this, my friend. The holidays have been kind of hard for me this year for a variety of reasons. I'm kind of hoping my mood will improve when I get home to see my family. One of the thing that depresses me most is when I think about Christmas being over. January is a horrible month for me.

*big hug*

It's so nice to know I'm not alone, that's so much for your kind words! I don't want Christmas to be over either. If only there was a way to slow down the days. :/ I absolutely hate the month of January too and New Years always depresses me!

I hope things get better for you when you get back home! *hugs*

Aw, I hope you get to feeling better. <3

Congratulations on your approval on your fanlisting, I eventually had to close all mine cause I couldn't make time to keep up with them.

Thanks so much! I do feel a little better today.

I appreciate the congrats as well. I didn't realize you owned fanlistings, something else we have in common! :D

Aw, I'm glad. <3

Yeah, I think I used to have maybe six of them. I kept them for a couple of years but I couldn't keep up with them anymore. But I still do love joining them like a madperson. XD

Aw, that icon is so cute. <3

Yeah, it's always a lot of fun joining FLs. I haven't joined many recently, I should probably start again cause it was so fun. XD
