Some days it feels like it’s all going pear-shaped.
Plans back-fire. People drop out of your life, or drop-back-in. Support seems to disappear.
And we’re in a tail-spin I call ‘circling the drain.’
We look around at social media, and it seems that everyone else is living the life of their dreams. The perfect love affair. The beautiful children. And of course, the amaze-balls job. House. Car. Clothes. Blah-de-blah-de-blah.
Breathe. Come back to your core. You are spirit having a human experience. We are all made of stardust. You are stardust. You are golden. (Okay, that’s not original, but it fits nicely.)
Life isn’t meant to be a struggle. But it is okay for life to be challenging.
Remember that…challenge good, struggle…not so much.
Look to what makes your feel good. Do some of that. Stat!
Call a friend. (Not a text, but use your voice.) Your coach or counselor. Don’t be alone.
Now, I’m a huge fan of aloneness…but when we feel in a funk, we need to be with others. We actually NEED to feel connected to others.
We need to feel connected. It’s the most important thing.
Even if you don’t have anyone, go to the coffee-shop or a park bench. Look at people. Be with people. Smile.
For me, when the blues hit (and they still do…it’s a human thing) I grab a shower, pop on some lippy and head out the door. Even if it’s just to swing by the grocery store. I do something: I move. I get out of the house.
Sometimes it works so well, the blues just disappear. Sometimes it’s a more temporary break.
But hey, I can always turn around and say ‘my miracle today is that I got up and showered!’
Don’t be alone. Reach out. You are worthy. You matter, and you are loved.
If you would like some help, contact me. Sometimes we need a professional to help us get through the tough times when we feel less than worthy.
