Turn That Frown Upside Down

So, I’ve been feeling rather blah these past few days.  Nothing in my life has really changed.  I’m still exercising (I went to The Bar Method on Saturday and again this morning).  I went to the gym yesterday (Sunday) and used the treadmill. (Side note: practically all the machines were empty.  Where is everyone??).  I’m busy with a few writing assignments.  

A friend of mine mentioned possibility of the winter blues.  It is true that this has been an usually harsh winter in my area.  Then you add that my children and I have had a cold on and off for weeks.  It doesn’t make me happy to hear that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow which means 6 more weeks of winter.  Ugh.

I don’t know if I have the winter blues or not but I refuse to let myself worry about it.  Instead, every time I feel down, I am going to remind myself of all the blessings that I have in my life.  I have a beautiful happy and healthy family, a hard working husband who has a great job and who loves us, a nice warm house, the ability to exercise and eat healthy foods…  I could go on and on. I have a lot to be thankful for and it’s about time I remember them and give thanks.

  1. I hope you kick these winter blues! I completely get you there. I have a history of depresson (who am I kidding, it’s not just history but current as well) but handle it well usually. There are definitely worse times and better times though.
    When all else fails, remember this too will pass and happy days are ahead :).

  2. OMG i totally feel blue too sometimes. It’s either bummy or stressed out. I think it’s just that time of the year. it’s just kind of icky.

    when you come out here to LA to visit, make sure to give me a ring. we should go to Disneyland! that always cheers me up.

  3. Thanks Topanga! I’ve been feeling much better. I’ve been listening to guided meditations every day and it has helped. I’ll definitely contact you should I ever visit LA. We can hit TA’s studio together. Or, if you ever come to NYC, let me know 🙂
