Keep the Faith

Why is it so hard to keep your faith that things will get better?? Last Friday, I was looking for news articles on someone who is important to me. I use Google Alerts for such a purpose.

Feeling listless and without inspiration

I could blame my coffee machine that broke down after some 10+ years of service. I could blame our rainy summer weather. I doubt it's about coffee or sunshine. I suppose it's far deeper. A recent road trip to Germany lifted my spirits. A lack of hotel sleep made matters worse, however. Actually, I do not (yet) know my reason(s) for feeling listless and bored. As a...
