Today’s been one of those days where I find it difficult to get out of bed. In fact, I’m in bed now, which is not good, because it’s almost 3 in the afternoon. I have eaten and showered, so I’ve at least covered the basics. But as far as doing anything constructive, or even fun — zilch.
I have had my laptop to keep me company. That’s where Lady Gaga comes in. My Facebook feed included an article where she talks about having depression. In it, she said something that I really needed to hear today. She says:
“Depression doesn’t take away your talents — it just makes them harder to find. But I always find it. I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that’s left. I’m lucky I found one little glimmer stored away.”
Wow. Thank you so much, Lady Gaga. Today, I’ve buried my talents. But you’ve given me the kick I need to re-discover them. I am going to get out of bed. A friend wants to meet me at a café to catch up. I’m going to go. It’s a start. So is just adding something to this blog, since writing is one of my talents. Thanks to you, Lady Gaga, this day will not be a total loss. I think you know how I feel. After all, you were probably Born This Way, too.
