Got the January blahs? Feelings are a call to action.

The holidays are emotionally powerful. They force us to look at the extent we have the love and relationships that we want and need. For single people that want to be in a relationship, it is sad. For people that are not currently in relationships that fulfill them, it hurts. After it all subsides, we are left with January. The days are gray and short. There is a natural let down after the holiday extravaganza. We are behind at work. For many of us, there is not a lot going on in January. There may not be much to look forward to in the near future.

Depression is much more common than people acknowledge. It is not just with people that are clinically depressed or diagnosed. We all go though emotional cycles and can get down at times. January is a common time for this.

Feelings are a call to action. If I am feeling sad, lonely, or unfulfilled, it is a signal that I should attend to that area of my life.

Also, the best way to work through a depression is to take action. As soon as you engage in a project, activity, or relationship, you are not depressed anymore. Of course, the last thing that you feel like doing when you are feeling down is taking action. Usually, you have to force yourself. Sitting at home and feeling sorry for yourself may feel good (it releases endorphins), but it is not effective to work through the blahs.

So take that class, start that art project, get out and socialize. Make plans. Find something to look forward to. Flirt. Ask somebody out. Orchestrate a romantic evening with your significant other. Remember, it is a good time to position yourself for another emotionally-laden holiday around the corner- Valentine's Day.

So Happy January! What can you look forward to?

clomid side effects vs pregnancy symptoms clomid ovulation induction ivf clomid challenge test perimenopause - clomid iui hpt For most individuals undergoing Clomid treatments, success is usually achieved with 100 mg of Clomid within the 3rd or 4th month of treatment. However, there are some individuals that just won t respond to Clomid. For those individuals, an infertility specialist is recommended and other avenues of conception are explored like IVF. I just wanted to say that this is a fabulous site for people going through infertility treatment. I have now completed my first cycle of clomid treatment, actually I am going for my pregnancy test tomorrow. Having now read other peoples experiences has been great. The information that was given to me at the hospital is very clinical and doesnt really give you an accurate idea of how you will feel and react to clomid. clomid estrogen steroids clomid and high prolactin symptoms

male clomid constipation clomid cycle provera uk clomid vs fertilaid - taking clomid during menopause Currently I am in week 4 of bleeding from it. I am still passing very small pieces of tissue with the bleeding. I never really bled heavily. I was told by my doctor to wait to try to get pregnant till after I had my first good Cycle. So my question is, has anyone taken Clomid that quickly after a miscarriage Arbitrarily applying day 3 FSH tests to all women even those with no infertility history is controversial, and can offer confusing results. Some clinicians have therefore questioned the usefulness of widespread FSH screening 21. It is our opinion that ovarian reserve screening should be an integral part of every infertility patients workup. clomid causing severe ovary pains clomid pct workout

Rebecca Baker - Kristian!I remember reaindg that your true love (aside from Cody, of course) is SHOES! Mine too. I just love a new pair of heels. I remember seeing a picture of you, I believe on your website, of you in some hot pink heels. I just loved them. I think a great pair of shoes is the perfect accessory to any outfit. So, for your wonderful birthday, I would give you a whole closet full of them! All kinds, ranging from atheletic (nike free's, my fav), to cowboy boots (an essential for any southern belle), to high heels, to wedges (adorable with jeans), to ballet flats (tory burch, my fav). I would have all different colors to match your wonderful outfits, so you can dress to the nine's during your shoots. Nothing is more fun than going out on the town with a new pair of kicks Then I would also give you some sweet time with your family. You could take a much needed vacation away from work & life, and just relax with Cody & your family. If it were a real cruise (cross my fingers, yes) I would give you a cruise with all of your favorite country artists performing on it, all week. Sidebar, okay I would LOVE to go on that cruise. Especially if Jason Aldean was singing. So in conclusion, I would give you a closet full of you favorite things (shoes) and a much deserved vacation away with your family. I hope you have an amazing birthday, you are very special in so many ways, and you deserve all that you will recieve on Friday. God bless you, may you grow in Him this year.RebeccaJanuary 24, 2011 4:32 PM

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a
few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.

Please let me know where you got your theme. Cheers
