I'm depressed right now and I shouldn't be. I had a great morning. I got to go up in a hot air balloon, which is something I've always wanted to do and never got to, until today. Maybe it's because the weather is crappy. Maybe I'm just bored. I shouldn't be bored, as there's tons of things to do. I'm just depressed and need some advice to get me out of this funk.

Of course you are bored. You have had the most fantastic experience, envy is oozing out of every pore here. But the adrenalin has stopped running and your bod is asking "what's next". Re-live the experience and be smug. Write a discussion about it. Let us drool over your experience and enjoy secondhand what we haven't done.

That makes sense. I was kind of thinking the same thing myself, but you've helped me to "see the light". I love your idea. Maybe I'll do that.

That's great. I shall go and have a look. Still very jealous.

I'm sorry you don't feel so good. It may be because you have achieved one of your ambitions and now you feel a bit empty. What other things have you always wanted to do. Think about them now and how you might get to do some of them. It's true there will be many people envying you for your balloon flight. Do share the experience with myLotters and tell us what it felt like to be up there. Starting a discussion which gets a lot of interest may help to make you feel better. I hope you do feel a bit more happy soon.

You're the second person to suggest that, so I might just have to do it. Thanks for your words of wisdom!

Thanks for the advice. That's exactly what happened. Hubby can in and said, "Let's go for a walk." I was happy about because I knew it's just what I needed, and it was. I was even laughing at times. So I guess it's just what the doctor ordered, huh?
