I gotta be real with you guys.... I've been in a funk.
Don't get me wrong, there's been a lot of good moments and times I've been genuinely happy. But it feels like more lows than highs. Of course whenever I'm feeling in a funk I tend to remember all the times I have recently felt low and group them together and think... "I've been feeling this way for awhile".
I don't want to call it depression because I know what real depression feels like and it was consuming. When I was depressed I couldn't even get out of bed, and I DID actually wake up early and workout and shower and get ready today so there's that. ;) Plus I'm sensitive to that word and felt for many years an annoyance when people used it so lightly to describe sad feelings. You CAN be sad without calling it depression. There IS a difference. ✌🏼️ So, I'll just say... I'm not feeling the way I know I can.
But I'm tired of hiding on social media dare I bring anybody down. And maybe surface level posts are okay for some, but I feel surface posts/friendships/relationships/conversations are LAME.
So here's my coming out post......
~ My life is not perfect.
~ I don't have it all figured out.
~ I don't have all the answers.
..... Does anyone?
Maybe this is my justification speaking, but I think we are all flawed human beings and we all have high and lows and we just gotta do our best and share what we've got to offer with the world in hopes of making the journey easier for one another.
So this is what I've got to offer right now ---> What I'm doing to NOT perpetuate negativity and go in that all-too-familiar downward spiral.
•Lots of scripture study/ prayer. Strengthening that relationship with God first and foremost.
•Lots of personal development. I've gone thru more books the last six months than ever before but I'm not speed reading, just reading a lot.
•My morning miracle routine I shared the other day- meditation/visualization/gratitude walks/ journaling.
•And I'm experimenting with foods and learning how to naturally heal and balance hormones and thyroid and all that good stuff cuz I feel that a big influence on how I'm feeling right now.
Just sharing cuz I figure maybe there's someone else out there not feeling their BEST.
But I still believe -NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL- we can still do our best to keep moving forward, even if in small ways. ✌🏼️
So here's to doing THAT. 👊🏼
