There it is again, the dreaded Blue Monday, an even more black day this year during the covid pandemic. My #thoughtfuldailypost is about this phenomena. This day for some is to complain and join the blue movement to express that it is so depressing this one January day. If you ask me, I have several blue days during the year hahahah, not only in January. How sorry we were with our complaining about Blue Monday, because ever since the covid pandemic strikes we all have something real to complain about. Many think this is the most depressing day of the year because Christmas is over, it is dark or gray outside, the holidays are still miles away, the wallet is empty and the first cigarette after the stop is long in the ashes, and don’t even talk about the dry january thing some people went into without really thinking about it. Oh gosh, what a situation! We squeak differently now that we've become entangled in an eternal Blue Monday, which has been restarting every morning for almost ten long months. And the end, to the new normal, is still a very small dot on the horizon. Blue Monday's "mathematical" formula was conceived in 2005 by psychologist Cliff Arnall and was used within a year as a travel agency marketing stunt. But The Day remained. Every January, the media gives comfort tips on how to get through these harsh hours. And if it works I don’t know, I do see some media attention and some holiday companies come with special blue offers.
We all have our new mindset and worries now. We all try to stay busy and I think for the people with kids and jobs the time is never enough. There is so much we already did the first lockdown that many now complaint that there is nothing left. Well there are but that are major decisions. Buying a dog? That corona puppy is a solution where you will have 12 years fun of, so think about it well. Twelve hours of Netflix in the tired sweatpants?, is always a good idea but for months thats maybe not what you wish for, and all series are finished, well for me that is. There is a dark side to everything, I try to stay sane. I want to stay calm, because if this is blue what will the pandemic have in store for us later.
With the lockdown, every day follows a set pattern, typical of the week day. "Walking the dog,not only for them but for me and the kids aswell. The little trips are a breathing moment and the fun tractor is I blog also about those moments. I also want all to be fun and better again but that I can’t change I keep to the rules and do my thing and hope for the best. My vaccination Weill be in September or in October so untill that time I plan to stay safe. So I take a blue feeling for now if I could swap it for something like last year before the covid arrived any day.
Depression from time to time is quite healthy. It humbles and fosters understanding of the suffering of the unfortunate. To take a fair look at the world and persons around us. There are many, a million Dutch people take a pill to feel better, to whom I certainly not belong! Because when you need a pill for one day how will that be for a longer period of time. If you are ill I understand that and am sure not judging.
So to all of you out there who have a difficult time and are struggling, you are not alone and better times will come.
I don’t know when but it will, and we are here to read your story if you want to share. I hope on a bright tuesday and on a bright year ahead. Stay safe and strong.......
