I am so sorry for the long lapses between posts; I am the worst blogger!! I wish I could report a fun excuse for not updating the blog. Unfortunately, I haven't been busy running a marathon, having a baby, or finding a cure for cancer. Rather, I have just had a major case of the winter "blahs" lately.
I did some research to find out what is wrong with me, and I diagnosed myself, a la Wikipedia with a case of malaise. Here is the definition "Malaise (pronounced /məˈleɪz/, mal-aze) - feeling of general discomfort or uneasiness, an "out of sorts" feeling."
Yep, that sums it up totally....not depressed, not sad, just out of sorts. However, I am ready to kick this feeling to the curb! March is here, and today is a new day.
Today, I am going to do the things that always work to get me out of a funk:
- Make a List and Get Things Done. (For some reason, physically crossing things off of a list brings me great joy. I have been known to write things like "eat a banana" on my To-Do list, just to be able to cross it off! Weird, I know.)
- Tidy Up. (For the record, I don't like to clean. But, I feel better when things aren't a total mess. Right now, my desk at work looks like a bomb went off, which could be part of the problem! hee hee)
- Work Out. (I need to get moving, even if it is on a treadmill.)
- Count My Blessings. (In my winter inertia, I forgot the real reason I started this blog. I wanted an online gratitude journal, a reminder of the joy in my life and in the world, and to talk to fun, positive people like you!)
