Doing the ordinary things that need to be done can be good for the soul. Try doing what you can do, and not worrying about what you can’t do. Recently I was in a funk because I could no longer do the bulk of the yard work, like I used to. It’s not that I enjoyed it, but not being able to do it really made me depressed. Then I found something I can actually do that needed to be done. It’s pretty mundane, and it is actually chopping wood – or rather cutting up the branches that had been cut off the overgrown bushes in the yard. But being able to do something really turned around my attitude. I can’t promise it will do the same for you, but it would be worth a try. Do what you can do – the laundry, the dishes, chop us sticks, watch the baby, whatever it is. Acknowledge the things that you can do, and give yourself some credit for it.
