Staying too long at a pity party? How to get out of the funk...

I have been in a real funk lately and I do not like it. I used to like a good pity party, but now I find it distracting and useless. Usually I can work out or get inspired out of a temporary depression, but this time, it is different.

I am coming off a rough couple of days. The kind that exhaust you and drain your brain until you are walking around like the living dead.

Over the weekend I took some time away from my family, thinking I needed "my space", as my son would call it, but I came back feeling a little numb.

What is going on?

So, today, I am determined to get it together!

I love magazines. Contrary to popular belief, I do not believe that ALL print media is dying. In the hearts of many men and women all over the world, there is still something exciting about getting a new magazine. Especially if it comes in the mail.

Whole Living Magazine, has a happiness issue on their newsstands for the month of March. Flipping through the beautifully placed images and scads optimistic articles made me think.

What makes me happy?

Instead of expecting an instant turn around, I am starting small and taking in a couple of little pick me ups!

What makes you happy?
Who inspires you to dust yourself off after a hellish week?

  • Good thoughts here. Sometimes it's hard to see past daily issues. The people who adopted all of those kids is pretty amazing!

    I think I had one really intense day and it kind of kicked my butt! Combined with a couple of sleepless nights, I spiralled into a walking coma! That family is amazing...

    I love to dance-it-out. My kids and I have been doing this for years. Or when my daughter was an incorrigible toddler and I would get so frustrated that I was ready to walk out, I would make her call me Fefe LaRue. We would talk in horrendous fake, french accents all day long and spray perfume all over our condo. Humor and goofiness are the only solutions for me.
