In the time between writing my pages and opening up this page to post it, my mood has slumped again. Whence comes depression? I can lift myself out of this; I know I can. I don't want medication, not again. Coming off the Citalopram in 2019 was horrible. So maybe I'll just fire right back into Impact Theory and take more notes. Yeah, that's what I'll do.
I stopped writing my pages when Lorraine came through to feed the cat. We had a nice 10 minutes together just catching up on how we're feeling. Being married to her is really good. That's something to carry into my day as well.
And just on the summarising thing, when I added the Arthur Brooks episode into my media database on Notion, I saw that I'd read his book, From Strength to Strength. I hadn't logged the Rich Roll podcast episode where I'd found the book reference, so I think I'll listen to that one again. My point is that I didn't even remember that I'd read his book, so I'm not sure how much I'm getting from all this self-development and search-for-meaning content if I'm not actively listening. I suppose it must be going into my brain on some level, but I would like it to be going in at a deeper level and then lead to something new from me. I'm all about finding meaning through creativity, so that's what I'm going to do.
