In a funk

I'm in a funk lately.  My last post was somewhat of a downer - and thats how I feel lately.  Down.
The weather is ultimate crap here.  It does nothing but rain and it's windy & cold.  It's been like this for months and it's really starting to get to me.  It's dark by 5:30, so going out in the evening just doesn't happen.  Taking the kids to the park and the dog for a walk seems like a distant memory now.

Don't get me wrong - I am happy and grateful, but lately I just feel down.  I think it's the weather, the struggle to find balance, and i've recently had a falling out with someone.  

I miss my mom, I'm over-weight, I wish I could exercise, I feel like i'm in this whirlwind of blue.  I know it's a phase and it will pass but I just felt the need to write about it and let it all out.  

I'm in a creative rut as well.  I'm struggling to make my Etsy shop goodies, and just don't feel like doing it.  I want to, but can't be bothered lately.  

I realize this post is all over the place already, but thats ok with me.  This post isn't peachy and pretty - but it's me.  I'm real and I get sad too sometimes.  I try my ultimate best to be happy and make the most of every situation, but sometimes things get the best of me and I get sad.  

I know the sun will rise tomorrow and it's a new day, and i'll make the best of it.

I can so relate. I love your honesty. Know that you are an inspiration to me. Hugs from Hawaii.

Huge hugs Nicole. We all have times of feeling down and like the world is swallowing us whole. Sometimes those moments are few and far between, other times its like waves are constantly crashing on our backs and making it impossible to stay on our feet.

Know that you are not alone. And know that you don't have to be cheerful all the time. No one is, because thats not real. Thats not life.

We are here when you need to get it out, really and willing to lend an ear.

Thank you for being honest, Em xo

Totally normal!! :) winter is a pretty 'downer' time of year, too bad about the weather, maybe I can send you over some of the wonderful weather we have been having in Christchurch at the moment ;) soon it will get warmer, and the days will get longer. Hopefully all these down days will turn around and give you triple+ the amount of happy days. Hope you start feeling happier soon :)

I know that place well. It's summer here in Canada, so I get those a lot less. But in the winter, when things are grey, it's hard not to get in a funk sometimes. The fact that you can take a step back and see it for what it is is a really good thing. You know that you're not feeling like yourself. Hopefully in a few days, things will start to brighten up for you and you'll be out of this little phase. Just remember we all have them and it will get better soon. :)

When the weather is gloomy and rainy it can definitely get you into a funk. And I agree that it is hard to find the balance of being a mommy, working, and blogging. You have to find what works for you. I think it's different for everyone. Just remember we are all here to support you. And know that we have all had days like this. Sometimes I like to put on some music and have a dance party with the kids. I get my exercise in, playing with the kids, and how you not be happy when you're dancing and being silly with your kids? Love you! And hang in there!

Aww cheer up friend! {hugs} I get like this too, especially during the wintertime. That's why I loathe winter. Somedays I won't even get out of my pj's. Just remember..."This too shall pass." Embrace your temporary funk with a big pan of brownies, then dust off the crumbs and move on :) If you ever need someone to talk to you can count on me!

Funny you write this-I have been feeling in a funk lately too and it is so comforting to know that somebody else out there feels the same way (even if it is a blah feeling). I am sorry to hear that you are currently feeling like this but you have to keep telling yourself "This soon will pass...and while I'm living it, I might as well try to enjoy it". YOU are fabulous-don't forget it. I love reading what you have to say-thank you for making me feel better about myself today. You are a gem and dearly loved by many around you I am sure.

I'm sorry your in a funk. I feel that I might me in one as well. At least super duper exhausted. The best blogs are the ones who keep it real and honest. Thanks for letting us see the real you. It is so important to show the real side of life. Here's to hoping the the sun will come up tomorrow and things will start getting better :)

I feel for you Nicole~ :( I get blue all the time. I tell my husband I'm in the "depths of dispair"...(you'll get that if you have ever watched Anne of Green Gables). I hope that you have a bright and cheery tomorrow! ((Hugs))~
