I usually try to make sure my blog posts are written in an uplifting, positive way, but I’ve been having a weird couple of days this week. For really no reason at all, I’ve been feeling pretty bleh. Like I am just in a minor bad mood with no cause.
The annoying part is that I WANT to be a really good mood. The sun is shining, I’ve been working out a lot this week and we’re even going on vacation to Breckenridge this weekend. *SIGH*
It’s always frustrating when your emotions don’t obey your mind. Like “Uh, hey there feelings, why don’t ya liven up a bit there….you don’t have much to be down about!”
Days like this make me have a lot of respect for people who work in places like amusement parks or pre-schools who are always energetic, positive and social. How do they do it?!
I guess the best thing I can do it just ride it out and try to be introspective to figure out why I am feeling this way. And hopefully a few days out in the Colorado sunshine will perk my spirits up. :)
Do you ever have days where you just feel bleh for no reason?
I was sitting at my computer contemplating what to write about today and my mind was a complete blank.
OK….lets think….what is going on in your life that you’re excited to share, Liz?
Truth is, there’s really not much going on that I feel motivated to tell you guys about. Lately I’ve been feeling in a bit of a standstill. Work is the same, my relationships are the same, weekends are the same…I’m craving something different!
Don’t get me wrong, life is great, but it’s just feeling a little monotonous lately. I don’t get excited about the things I used to. I’m feeling like I need to evolve in some way. Quarter life crisis?
This weekend for example, I met up with two of my girlfriends to attend the Taste of Lincoln street festival, historically my favorite summer fest. We knew a friend working a tent who could get us drinks, it was a beautiful night and a good band was playing. Sounds like a great time, right?
In the middle of the party, one of my friends and I were yelling at each other over the music, drinking our luke-warm beer, watching intoxicated people act stupid when we both realized that what used to be a highlight of our summers was now just…sort of…boring.
It’s official. I need to switch up my routine and start doing some new things! What I enjoyed two years ago just isn’t cutting it anymore. Now I just have to figure out what WILL be fun and get my friends to agree with me!
How do you guys shake things up when you’re feeling in a rut?
