I've been in a funk. To be fair I still am. The month of November seemed to both fly by and crawl at the same time and I haven't been feeling "myself" in weeks. I've been trying to pinpoint what it is specifically that is making me feel "sad" or "anxious" or "uneasy" and I'm not sure it can be narrowed down to just one thing.
My horoscope today read in part "you don't have to destroy yourself out of love for the world" and that resonated with me. I'm changing my mental tune. I'm going to continue to educate myself on issues without plummeting into darkness and fear. I'm going to recognize that I'm a sensitive, reclusive homebody by nature while also addressing the fact I've allowed myself to to slip into an anti-social introspective slump for an entire month. Today it ends.
Today I'm going to feel the warmth of the sun through my office window and be happy. I'm going to dream of decorating our apartment for the holidays and be happy. I'm going to think of my family, my loving relationship (tough-love included), and my friends and be happy.
Is anyone else with me on this? Let's make a pact: focus on ONE thing a day that makes you happy. Really happy. Take good, deep breaths and stay in tune with your body. Eat a well-balanced diet and aim for some exercise. Drink more water. These are my goals this week and I may even throw some yoga and/or acupuncture in for good measure.
Here's to turning this funk around!
