The Crazy Train Dropped Me Off In Funky Town ... Not The Fun One.

This blog post is based on a true story.

First, let me clarify that my hair is wet in that picture because I had just gotten out of the shower. If I had taken the photo thirty minutes prior however, it would have been wet because I hadn't washed it in five days. And it was totally appropriate to take an almost naked photo, because I only had 30 minutes before the clock struck midnight and I turned into a pumpkin would have failed at my 365 Project already.

You guys, I'm stuck in a rut. I don't know if it's because the holidays came and went, or because TJ has been gone so much the past few weeks, or if I'm PMSing early or if I miss my family or if I just need a good cry (oh wait, I got that on Wednesday during a Netflix binge) - but I am stuck in a big emotional rut and I hate even admitting that here because I made a promise to myself that I wasn't going to complain in this space anymore, but here I am, breaking that promise ten days into the New Year. Damn it, I just became a statistic.

I've just felt so blaaaaaaaaaah, and completely unmotivated a.l.l-w.e.e.k-l.o.n.g. Hence the lack of blog posts or social interactions with anyone other than Brutus - because silence is better than bullshit, my friends ... and that chunky monkey always makes me smile.

Has anyone else felt like me this week, or am I the only one who is going to put her crazy on display? Come on peeps, don't let me down here.

Anyways, I just wanted to check in quickly and actually force myself to write, before I forgot how to do so or fell off the internet or something. I'm attending my first ever Book Club tonight, which basically means I'm almost a grown up ... hopefully getting some girl time is exactly what Doctor Google ordered. Over and out, betches.

  1. I have felt like this the last couple of days too. Whenever I feel in a rut, I list all the things that bring me joy. Whether its a run, spending time praying/reading the bible or a devotional, a coffee date with friends, a date with my husband, a trip to the bookstore, a few hours alone in a coffee shop,a mystic tan, etc. Then I try and just do one thing a day. I intentionally try and do the things that I know will bring me a smile or some peace. And sometimes it lifts the funk quickly, and sometimes, it takes a whole week of intentionally caring for myself. Praying for you dear. These are normal so its okay-don't feel guilt for having emotions and being real.

    1. You are such a beautiful ball of sunshine, and I hope you know how much your positive and sweet words mean to me, Brittany :) I love the idea of writing the things that I am joyful for and investing a little time into myself. I've been stressed beyond belief this week getting caught up with all of my clients that I've definitely forgotten about myself and the people, places and things that I should stay focused on in the "big picture". Thank you again for your positivity and for reminding me about what and who is important <3 I hope you have a lovely weekend!!

  3. I have been feeling the same too but its because we got an extra week of snow days, on top of the two weeks of for christmas & new years and I tried to wake up with the alarm today but decided to sleep more because I rarely ever get sleep. I've enjoyed not having back to back work jobs and don't want today to end it!

  4. I feel the exact. same. way. I cannot get myself motivated at work, last night was the first time I stepped out of my house besides to go to work in probably five days, and all I want to do is lay in bed. I think its the new year and holidays being over and this being the first REAL week of 2014. I feel ya girl. But I feel like the 365 Challenge and this month of 12x30 help you to realize that you need to get out there and be active so the pictures reflect it.

    1. I agree with you about the 12x30 Challenge! It's been an interesting way to take a look around and notice my surroundings and realize I am blessed. This week has been much better. Happiness is a choice, and this week I choose to be HAPPY! :)

  6. This week has just been soooooooo long. It was hard going back to work on Monday and I've struggled to get motivated to do anything. I think the holidays came and went far too quickly :( On the bright side, things can only get better!

  7. Everyone in my office has looked like Eeyore this week. No shame in it. I've had bursts of motivation here and there, but then I get home and put Boomer to bed, and then stare blankly at netflix until its time for bed. For me knowing I have some activities coming up is helping me be a little more excited, so maybe make some plans for yourself! Even if its just a mani.

    1. LOL, Eeyore. Whitney, I've been staying up until like 3am for the past week watching Netflix. It's bad, lol. I agree ... I've definitely been neglecting myself lately, and it's surely showing in my crappy attitude this week. I think a little hair appointment is in order. Cheers to the weekend, I hope you enjoy it!!

  8. This post made me giggle, I have days like that too. Yesterday was one of them :) Hopefully your weekend will be a good refresher and you'll feel better about things next week. You haven't failed at anything, just keep trying to make things more positive, but we all go through patches of time where that is tough to focus on.

  9. You're definitely not alone! I went to bed at 7:00 one night just to try and make the week go by faster. I'm rocking 4 day hair today so you're also not alone in that regard! Hopefully this weekend will turn things around for the rest of the month!

  10. Not that I'm happy to hear that you are feeling the same way, but I'am too - so you're not alone.
    Have fun at your book club, I was just telling Jerry I want to do that when we get back to the USA. I didn't know that means I'm officially a grown up when I go to one…how…cool ;).

    1. It's definitely the "first week of the year / end of the holiday" BLUES! I'm sure it doesn't help that it's super dark out, too!! It definitely means you're a grown up when you join a book club, lololol ;) Let me know if you find a club, otherwise we can start a virtual one ;)

  11. What did you read? A book club saved my sanity this year! I moved to a new town and didn't know anyone. A girl in the same situation started a Gen Y book club at our library as a way to meet people, and I've made many good friends through it! We go out during the week, we'll go hiking or bowling on the weekends. My boyfriend coaches football, so it's nice to have some friends while he is gone. I hope it works out the same for you while your husband is away!

    1. Uuuuuuuhhh, well ... I didn't actually read the book, but Bernadette was in the title. I'm awful. That sounds LOVELY that you were able to join and make so many friends thorough your club!!!! I love that your friendship continues outside of the monthly meetings. Sounds so refreshing and fun!!

  12. I'm sure Brutus is doing a great job of keeping you company. Heck he could come keep Roxy company, she's been looking for a boyfriend :-P

    *hugs* you're not alone hun, January is seriously the most depressing month of the year. It's frickin' frackin' cold outside, the holidays are over, and everything is just downright blah. The good news is it doesn't last for long.

    Snuggle Brutus extra tight until hubby is back and pour yourself an extra big glass of wine. Happy Friday!

    1. Brutus says "hubba hubba!!" lol

      You know what, you're right. I was half questioning my sanity / if I have seasonal depression - but I think everyone is feeling out of sorts this month. We'll be bitching about how hot it is soon enough, ya know? lol

      Cheers to the weekend!!!! I hope you have a lovely one!! xo

  13. Aww I'm so sorry your feeling like that this week! I definitely have my times of feeling like that & while they're not fun, I fully believe we need our low times to really enjoy the high times. You'll come back up & be so refreshed!! Hope you have fun tonight & have a good weekend!!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Brandi! I totally "get" that this is my blog and that I can write about whatever I want, but sometimes I'm embarrassed to complain about silly things like this when people have so many more heavy things going on in their lives, you know?? Le sigh. Cheers to a brand new week! xo

  18. Believe me, beautiful. You are not the only one! I deal with this too. I'll be fine for a few months & then I'll start feeling crazy emotional. I can't seem to sort out how I feel. I either want to punch someone in the face or cry all day (lol). But, like Brittany said, I try to do things I know I'll enjoy (especially spending time with God) too. It tends to help :) Also, don't feel bad about spilling your guts out on your blog. I mean, it is YOUR blog & writing is a good form of therapy. I'd rather you share the good & the bad. Just shows that you're genuine ;)

    1. I cannot even believe how many people responded that they are feeling a little crazy and depressed and unmotivated, too! I seriously hate reading that so many women are down, but I'm happy that I created a space where we can all be honest with our feelings and admit that it's not always happiness and rainbows! I hope that you have a super productive and happy week! I'm rooting for US! xo

  19. I don't think you should restrict yourself from blogging about how you really feel, or it may turn into a space you resent! We are all here for you, good or bad feelings. I was in a rut DURING the holidays, hence a two week blogging hiatus. I'm sure you will bounce back... and even if you don't, you can still blog about it!

    1. Thank you for the advise, Kalyn. I don't want to restrict myself, but I always claim in my head that my blog is my happy place, but it often turns into a place where I am complaining ... and I KNOW that some of my readers have so many more heavy things going on than just having a little bit of the "holiday blues", ya know? Thank you for your comment, and I hope you have a fantastic week! xo

  20. I go through phases like this every once in a while. And I'll be honest, sometimes what I really need to do is cry it out and if all else fails, spend two hours on the phone with my mom talking about absolutely nothing because somehow, it just makes me feel better. And it may be weird, but sometimes when I'm feeling like I'm in a funk, I will actually get full on dressed up for no real reason. Full makeup, hair & a cute outfit. Sometimes just putting in the effort just for myself helps.

    Good luck, hope you get out of your blah funk soon!!

    1. Are we twins? I spent a good 2 1/2 hours talking to my mom on Friday and it some how just made me gain this composure on reality .. even though we weren't even discussing how or why I was feeling like crap!

I hope that you have a great one!!

  21. Oh girl, I am SO with you on the sadness. We take our Christmas tree down tonight and I just want to cry. The cold has got me so beaten down and my husband is back in evening law school classes so I never see him except on the weekends. I just want to cry, complain, and throw a massive pity party for myself. Wah! No that you are not alone and this too shall pass....soon I hope! Smile!

  25. I was wondering why you were MIA! and I don't want to make it sound like I'm glad you're feeling like this or anything but I am kinda glad that you admitted it. I mean, I'm sure everyone feels like this sometimes but no one really writes about it so... I'm happy to see another human who is like me and sometimes just wants to cry because I have to take out the trash and my life is so depressingly mundane and my parents live so far away and I have to make myself dinner and bleh bleh bleh, all that emo crap. :)

    1. I agree with you, senorita. It takes time, and it takes effort to be happy. I once read that you put the same amount of effort in being sad as you do in being happy. This coming week I choose HAPPY - and I wish the same for you, my friend. xoxo

  27. I agree. I've felt the same way until....today. Part of it was being sick but I just have lacked motivation but things don't change unless you change so I'm bucking up (as we say in WI) and making a change. Hang in there pretty girl things will look up.

  36. Oh I completely understand how you feel. Been complaining how I feel blah and unmotivated too. Think it's this time of year as the winter blahs seem to really set in.

  40. I have felt this too in the last week. I even wrote a blog post about it. It's rough, but it helped me a lot today when I made a set plan for my day. You can't really force yourself to be motivated to do anything. It helps me to kind of talk up whatever I am doing. Going for a walk? It's so beautiful out, it's going to be such a fun time. I'm such a dork. I feel you though. I've been having a lot of trouble with this on my days off. I keep wanting to sleep all day instead actually doing something and I don't like that.

    1. Great minds (well, frustrated minds, I suppose, but GREAT as well!) think alike ;)

      You are definitely NOT a dork, because you are so right, you can't force yourself to be motivated. I was honestly the biggest slug this past week, the only time I left the apartment was to take my dog for a walk. That's really not healthy. I love the idea of a little action plan, and I took your comment to heart - I'm going to start creating one first thing in the morning. I hope that you are able to enjoy a little R+R this weekend :)

  42. I have had several moments just like this in the 7 months I've been married. I moved two hours away from my family to a town where the only person I know is my husband. I only work part of the year so I have a lot of me time at home while my husband's at work. It's nice having time by myself to do my hobbies, but after a while it gets lonely and boring. I also feel like I get pulled in a million different directions because I think it's hard on my parents not having me home anymore and there's a lot of stuff going on with them and my sister and her boys. There's been several times I've gotten in a rut where I feel like I almost have a pity party for myself and just get so down and out and emotional. Luckily I have a husband who doesn't mind me ugly crying over nothing and who tries to make me feel better every single time. I've learned that crying is okay and definitely needed to just let out all the emotions that get bottled up over time. Hopefully you get out of your rut soon, but know that you're not alone in feeling like this!

  43. Girl you can complain or scream or whatever as much as you need to here, it's YOUR blog! And I totally dont think you're crazy at all! I've been stressed to the absolute MAX lately, and sick to add to it. Love you whether you post once a day or once a month!

    1. Thank you sweet girl <3 General consensus around here is that this week, and possibly this month sucks, so we just need to keep on trooping together :) xox

  45. It is the post holiday blues, all the chaos and excitement leading up to those days, parties, dinners, visiting fmailies all of that crammed into a few days and then nothingness, January is not typically the happiest of months so you are not alone, you just need to focus on all small things that put a smile on your face.

    1. You have got to be right! Plus, it's so cold and dark and blah outside! I feel like such a brat complaining about just feeling "down" when so many people have so many more important things going on in their lives ... le sigh. Tomorrow is a brand new day though, luckily :) xoxo

  46. Oh Kymmy, we are so alike that it is sometimes scary!! I have also been feeling like that and i have felt so terribly guilty about it because we have a new home, our sweet girl, a new baba on the way and been on a fabulous holiday but I've been feeling so BLEH too! I've been so lazy and so demotivated to do anything - always tired and lazy and wanting to sleep!! And I am never like that at the beginning of a year! But now that I am home, I have pulled my finger out of my ass and have just kept trying my hardest and my best… And for some reason, I already feel better!! Back to blogging tomorrow x

    1. Oh my dear friend, how I have missed you! I do believe that happiness is a choice, and you just proved that! Your vaca looked amazing, SJs sweet photos make me smile, and I cannot wait to "meet" your sweet new addition soon. Sending you so much love and happiness, I hope that you have a lovely week my dear. xoxo

  47. THIS HAPPENS TO ME! The moment when I don't know what I'm going to do, I'd just lay down and think about nothing. Or I'll try to cry. It's crap, seriously! 2013 had been sucky for me but January ain't that BAD! And you lovely lady, cheer up! ;)

    1. Thank you for your kind words my sweet friend! I think that I just needed to have a public pity party. I feel much better this weekend and I'm ready to take on the week! Cheers to a BRAND NEW WEEK! xoxo

  48. I felt this way too, I took so many naps because I was just unmotivated to do anything all week. I'm finally starting to feel like I'm coming out of this "funk" but who knows how long that will last for. You're not alone! :)

  49. Sorry you are having a rough week! Don't feel bad about admitting it, because this is your space to vent about whatever you want ;) Feel better!

  50. I agree with everyone else, don't feel bad about sharing your feelings! This is your own personal blog and I think this is why readers keep coming back- you're so real! This post actually made me feel better so THANK YOU. You are not alone. I've been in a funk the past few days. Turns out i'm just PMSing!...Whenever I am having a bad day I take a few minutes to literally just look around and take in my surroundings. I'll find something that helps me to appreciate life even on the toughest of days. Hope you have a better week! :)

    1. Well thank you for that kind compliment, Ashield! I just feel guilty sometimes complaining when people are going through such heavier things, you know what I mean?

      I have a little "gratitude journal" saved to the notes section of my iPhone, but I definitely want to take it "offline" and start physically writing down the things that make me happy.

      Thank you for stopping by Ashield! <3

  51. I don't feel that way today, but I've been there. Seems like most of us have those kind of days occasionally - some more often than not. Hope you've been having a better week!
