Have You Felt This Way?

How do you speak from the heart, when your heart feels empty.  I don't feel empty as in a lack of love, but as in a lack of inspiration, spark, energy, fire, drive, desire, as in a lack of joy.

This picture was taken of me last week when I didin't know my picture was being taken.  When I saw it I was surprised at how much my expression in the photo matched how I am currently feeling.

Living with bipolar this happens, but I would appreciate your comments, love, prayers, healing thoughts, positive vibes and anything else that you think might help.  Thank you.

No advice, but sending positive vibes your way. And I hope you realize how much you bring to others...when you leave a comment on my blog it really cheers me up. If you have that much of a positive effect on a person known "only" through the Interwebs, just imagine how much you bring to others! ((hugs))

Huge hugs my friend to lift you up. I agree with sAm - your blog comments mean so much to me - always funny and full of wisdom. Thinking about you.

You are definitely NOT alone. Even those of us without bi-polar get into these places. No inspiration, nothing good inside (or just nothing period). It think it ebbs and flows for everyone. Praying for you!

Oh Mimi you are so in my thoughts.. You are an amazing woman and you should know that. I know your husband and boys are so happy to have you in their lives and are so proud of you.. Hugs.

Enjoy your night...

You are not alone my friend. I may not be Bi-polar, but I have definitely felt that way before. It's not a good feeling. So I am sending extra hugs & prayers your way! Know that you are not forgotten!

When I saw that picture, I didn't even focus on your face at first. The yellow raincoat looked so cheerful. And then I noticed your lovely brown hair. It was only when you mentioned it that I saw your face.
Maybe that's a bad thing. maybe I should look deeper. I apologize.

I'm sorry this is a rough patch for you. Wish I could give you an IRL hug. Your comments with the words 'hugs and love' make my day so often. Hang in there.

Hi Sister! I don't have any advice. Just know that you aren't alone.

Even if you don't feel Him, God is always with you and will never leave you.

I pray you feel His joy today!

Life does have a way of ebbing and we feel adrift without an anchor. My friend, you are an amazing woman. One who is witty and funny and wise!! I too am bipolar and I know what you are talking about. I will be praying for you and that this feeling will pass and pass quickly!
Hugging you

Sorry I'm late on this!

Have you been journaling? Sometimes just writing - anything, not thinking - can get you going, or at least figure out where you are. And then you can figure out where you want to go.

I catch myself staring out the window sometimes. Just totally zoned out. I feel like I've been thinking deep thoughts, but have no consciousness of it. I call 'em my "mental time outs".
