I probably shouldn't be blogging today, seeing as the blog is called 'Good Things' and I'm kind of feeling the opposite of that...but it's my blog and I'll be heavy hearted if I want to. So there.
I had such fun with my Mum in Seoul over the past few days, and I am loving Korea more than ever, but she flew out this morning and the time goes so very fast and I am no good at goodbyes and life gets back to normal so quickly. So I am feeling a bit flat. And then seeing her makes me miss the rest of my family heaps - especially my sister and my nephews (that's Ari up there - don't you just want to give him a big squeeze?). I wonder if Beci could fly Ari over for a quick visit? Just an hour or two, then I'd be ok?
And then one of my most cherished friends, who I've known forever (almost literally) is dealing with all kinds of heavy hearted things with her dad, and it's looking a bit grim. And she's been doing this all on her own, because her siblings are interstate and overseas. And I'm sitting in Seoul feeling useless and wishing I could do something, anything. And thinking about my loved ones and wandering what if something happens to them and where will I be? By their side, I'd hope?
All futile worries, pointless indulgences, floating concerns. But they do make me feel a bit flat.
So I think I will tell you all that I love you, maybe package up some good things to post to some of you, and then do something simple and reassuring, like make lasagna or sew some felt or talk to my husband or hug my dogs. Or all of the above.
What do you do, when you're feeling a bit flat?
