uptown funk

I’ve been in a little bit of a funk this summer. It’s the kind of funk you can’t quite put your finger on, and even though you recognize it and try to find ways for it to go away, it stubbornly persists.

I’ve done a lot of reflecting to try to figure out what the cause of this gray cloud hanging over me, which dampened the feel-good vibes that usually define summertime. Blogging can be an easy way to paint a pretty picture, without really knowing what’s going on behind the scenes. While I haven’t completely felt like myself, I am grateful to have people in my life who are sympathetic and supportive of my … funkiness.

I still can’t say that I’m operating at my usual energy level, yet I’ve been saying “YES!” to almost every event, new project and new experience that’s come my way. Pushing myself out of my comfort zone might be another way for me to reset, and focus on getting back to a positive mindset. But I also know it’s a fine balance – so taking time for myself (i.e. Netflix) is also high on the priority list.
