Moving Forward

So I've been having a hard time with life lately. Just everything. I finally got to the point today that I googled therapists online and actually found a site that listed more than just where someone went to school to help make a decision.

Found someone that looked good and gave him a call on lunch. He was actually able to adjust some things and get me in today. I was pretty shocked about that, but extremely grateful because I needed it. Its just the first meeting, but I'm actually feeling a bit of hope today. And I'm not sure the last time I felt that.

This isn't really a topic I'm comfortable discussing with people, and don't really want to now. So here's the point. Part of my "homework" is to find something I enjoy doing that I have to commit to doing several times a week. Its pretty sad how hard it was to think of something. So for right now I picked taking photos. Someday I would love to take a class, get a nice camera, but that is not today. So this is not about being a photographer, its just about getting out of the house and doing something I enjoy.

So here is where you all come in. I'm making a commitment. Online. Because I know myself and if I don't I will do it for a week and then stop. So welcome my new feature, Foto Friday. I know its cheesy, it was the only thing I could think of. If you check my blog and its Saturday, and there was no Foto Friday post, I expect harsh comments telling me to get off my ass!

And I'm not having visions that I will overnight become Ansel Adams, so remember this is about doing something, not the quality of the photos :) For now. Just moving forward a bit at a time.

I fully expect to see a foto today (Friday). I'm glad you're picking up a hobby.

I like this post. It's so positive. I like your "foto friday" post, too. And, many of the most fascinating photos I've ever seen were simply taken by people who happened to have a simple camera with them at the right time, and not by professional photographers with expensive cameras. I think you should definitely pursue this.

I like your foto friday idea. I will definitely be checking back each week to what you've got!

My hobbies definitely keep me sane. I think it's a wonderful idea. Loved the first one!

I like the idea. I hope the therapist continues to be good...

How did you like going to a therapist? I fantasize about having a therapist. I really think it would help to have someone who doesn't know me, listen and help me figure out what's going on in my head. Was it good, weird, hard?

I really like going. Even though its only been twice. I went to someone about 2 yrs ago and while it helped with stuff that was happening at that time, I didn't feel like I really clicked with his style. I like this guy a lot more for me. And for some reason its a lot easier to talk to a stranger who isn't biased one way or the other. But it is hard also. Hard to look at issues you've had for a long time. But I figure if they haven't gone away on their own by now, they aren't gonna.
