Project Orange

So, as you all know (or at least most of you), my peeps and I use the word "Indigo" instead of "sad" or "blah" or "depressed". We say we're feeling Indigo, because that sounds more artistic than "blue", right? We think it does. For me, Indigo steals my joy, my patience, my energy. He makes me feel heavy. My limbs are heavy, my eyelids heavy. It's hard to just function through the day and get done what I need to, never mind things that I want to do. (Although, he makes me feel like I don't want to do anything.)

Since Indigo is our arch-nemesis, we're starting a project to fight back and we're calling it Project Orange. Orange is the opposite of Indigo. PO is going to help bring us back to center when we're feeling overwhelmed and overworked and scattered. I feel pulled in a zillion directions lately and I have no idea what to do about it. So I'm going to take steps.


PS Blogging break is over! It probably sounds silly but this thing helps me feel connected.

  1. I love this! I have the same problem- really bad this year. I start projects only to let them lapse because I just can't seem to do more than get through life some weeks. I hate indigo. Project Orange sounds awesome. Glad you are back blogging- I really enjoy reading your posts even if I don't always comment on all of them :)
