All last week I was stuck in a funk. Well maybe that’s not the right words but it rhymes and sounds good . STUCK IN A FUNK. Another word to describe the way I was feeling…..”Blah”
I woke up and felt like there was no reason to get out of bed. There was nothing to look forward to. Nothing excited me.
I was feeling down. So many things were irritating me, including people. For no reason really, I was just irritated. Irritated with everything, but nothing specifically. I didn’t want to go anywhere but at the same time, I didn’t feel like staying home.
My emotions were everywhere, as if they were confused.
I tried to snap out of it. I tried thinking of something fun, something to make me smile, make me happy. But I couldn’t think of anything. My mind was blank and I struggled to find the meaning of something fun.
What is fun? What do I like to do? Nothing came to mind.
Nothing sounded appealing to me. Nothing gave me that excitement feeling. NOTHING.
So all week I was stuck in a funk. I did alot of sleeping. And I do mean alot.
Then my good friend called and invited me to a BBQ. She was having a “back to school” BBQ for the kids. I didn’t want to go, but another part of me did. So I told her I would be there.
When the day of the BBQ arrived, I didn’t want to go. I didn’t feel up to it. I almost stayed home, but I knew my friend would have been disappointed if I didn’t show up. Not only would she have been upset but my son would have been too.
So I made myself go. Once I was there my mood drastically changed. I enjoyed myself. I laughed, I ate, and laughed some more. I had fun. I enjoyed myself. I was surrounded by friends, delicious food, and happy kids.
I took that tiny step. I got out of the house even though I really didn’t want to. Because of that step, I no longer feel blah. Today my funk is gone.
I’m not sure if I was in a bout of depression or maybe it was the weather. Who knows.
But here’s what I do know…..
I do know that even though I feel great today, tomorrow I may not. Tomorrow I might be “blah”, I might be in a funk. And….. That’s OK. Not everyday is going to be great, AND not everyday is going to be bad. Each day might be different. BUT…….
I WILL GET THROUGH IT
