You might be wondering why I'm still deciding to talk about my 'funk' if I just explained that it's exactly what NOT to do. Am I right? Well, the reason I'm giving it the attention is not because I intend on fueling the funk, but because I think it's important for us all to realize that by talking about our problems that's just what we're doing. I've been thinking about this a lot lately as there's some things in my life that I tend to get stuck on every now and then. I'm starting to see that I'm actually just letting it have a place in my life. By talking about it, dwelling on it, and making it important in those ways I am literally saving a little place for it inside me. It's okay to have problems or things that bother us, but by going on and on and bringing such attention to them aren't we just inviting them to stick around? Yes! So stop!!
Today rather than share that post about how and why, and all the ins and outs of my funk, instead I'm going to choose to fight the funk. I'm going to stop letting it get the best of me and decide to move on with my day and maybe it will turn itself around because of that choice. It's worth a try, don't you think?
What do you do when you get into a funk? Do you embrace it? Run from it? Next time you're feeling down, maybe try and fight the funk like me!
