Unsynched

Do you ever have those times when everything seems to be going your way, traffic lights turn green as you approach, and only your favorite songs come out of the radio. My psyche seemed to be synchronized with the universe.

That happened to me. Over the last month, the weather has been perfect, work slowed down, and I've had plenty of opportunity to train for upcoming races as well as running a race almost every weekend.

Then November came, after a brief rush of optimism, everything seems to be crashing down around me, work became quite busy and unpleasant, many unseen forces blocking my way, no time for running, traffic lights turn red as I approach, and all the music coming from the radio annoys me.

Is this only a state of mind?

It's because you haven't come to visit your sweet little Zoey in forever! She's very upset with you about that!

I suppose it is. I tend to suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, so once November comes and all the pretty colored leaves have fallen, and the skies are gray and the wind blows chilly, I start to want to hibernate and everything annoys me.

Then the holidays distract me by keeping me busy for awhile and I start to accept the idea of winter. But it takes awhile and I'm usuallly kind of blah until March! Hope your feeling is more temporary!
