No November gloom. At all.

I looked outside my office windows and I liked the view and I am sharing it with you. And then it made me think...






Heavy clouds are plaguing the sky over Ljubljana and the colours have all but left the city , but we've been pretty lucky so far. November can be one of the most depressing months in this city weather-wise. This are first serious clouds of the month and hey! we nearly ran out of November.

It's really funny when I come think of me about a year ago and now. I guess that November/December last year presented probably the darkest period of my life. I just didn't know what to do with my job that - after two years - started to seriously pushing me into something that was the closest approximation of depression. But I didn't fall over the edge and I would surely never look for the helps of any kind of drugs. I had to fight my way out, I just had to do it my usual way. But I needed five more months and when I finally resigned from my bossy position in May (a relaxing week in Tuscany surely helped me making the right decision; I opted for life) my life turned into something totally different.

Well, it returned to my usual, careless, happy, joie de vivre mode. And since then everything seems to be working okay. So I guess this is a kind of my late thanksgiving lament; I am thankful for all the nice things that happened in the last year. Oh, also for the bad stuff, because it made me re-evaluate my life, my goals, my priorities. So, there. Even I can stray from flashing. Sometimes.

Oh, I will stay comfortably close. LOL

I often think about it. And I often ask myself why have I waited for so long? Well, I don't know, but I guess there was some reasoning behind it all. I just forgot all about it.
