Do you ever have those days where you just feel..bleh.
You’re not having a bad day necessarily but you’re not having a great day.
That’s me today.
I have been sick since the beginning of the month, I could use some more sleep, and I have no idea what to write about in my blog.
All minor things but are still things that can get you in a funk if you allow them to…and I have done so.
Shout out to my husband who has to listen to me complain.
When texting my husband complaining about my day he said something that I didn’t want to hear but that I needed to hear.
“Think about what you have to look forward to.”
He’s so good at that..telling me what I need to hear, and I am so lucky to have those people in my life that tell me those things.
Instead of spending the last couple of hours dragging my feet around thinking about all of these different reasons why I’m having a bad day I should look at what I have coming up. In just a few minutes I get to go see my amazing little boy. Picking him up from daycare and seeing that wonderful smile makes everything better. After I pick him up I’m going to buy coffee because I want it and I’m going to cuddle with my son. Jason and I get to go visit my dad, have dinner with him, and watch Jeopardy. When I get home I’m going to curl up under a blanket and watch my favorite show in the entire world.
Whenever you think you’re having a bad day or in a funk, grab a piece of paper and write down all of the things you have to look forward to or all of the things you love. It’s impossible to be mad after you reflect on the things you have in your life.
Thank Jason, without knowing it you’ve inspired me to write this post and get out of my funk..maybe I’ll keep you around for a little longer..
I think we get into funks because we’ve lost sight of what we DO have. We just simply forget the amazing things we do have in life and we spend our time focusing on what’s wrong.
Another big factor of this funk that people get into is comparing what they have to what others have. It’s so easy to scroll through Instagram or Facebook and see the lives of others looking flawless and adventurous while you spend 8 hours a day behind a desk and get envious.
So much time is spent comparing ourselves to others and wanting what other people have that we lose sight of what we already have. We spend our time trying to think of ways to make our lives better, different, or exactly like someone else s that we forget to see the beauty in our own unique stories.
Funks happen..you can’t avoid them..but you can fight back.
Remember what you have, remember who you have, and remember why you’re here.
I have an amazing son, life, job, and cat.
I have the most amazing support system who supports me in every aspect of my life and gives me advice when I need it most.
I am here to help my son grow into the most amazing person he can be. I am here to watch that journey and capture every moment of it that I can.
I like to call this my gratitude list.
Whenever you’re in a funk or stuck comparing your life to the lives of others get a list going. Grab your phone or a spare pen and paper and get writing. Write down everything you love and write down who you love. Write down what you have to look forward to and write down why you’re here.
It’s hard to be in a funk when you’re looking at a giant piece of paper reminding you that you’re life is pretty special.
Thanks again Jason, you continue to help me grow in a million different ways.
