I should have been happy, right? Well, for some reason I wasn’t. I arrived at work in a VERY cranky state and just felt like complaining and pouting all day. Every little thing made me more upset, and things that normally wouldn’t even bother me caused me to be furious. I let myself get into a big funk and I hated it. But the more I was in it, the more I allowed myself a pity party for being in it. ”I’m allowed to be in a bad mood” I thought to myself, “everyone is in a bad mood once in a while!” Several things were contributing to my miserable mood and I was getting worse as the day went on. I tried to talk myself out of it and was okay for a few hours, but then something else would happen to send me into a craze. It was just one of those days.
At the end of a very long day, I got into bed so THANKFUL for the day to be over. I wanted to throw in the towel on the day and have it be DONE. I woke up this morning and felt like a million bucks. It was as if I slept off my bad mood. I am much more relaxed and reasonable to talk to today; the tiny things aren’t getting me upset beyond belief. I am happy that the sun is shining and that I have a very exciting weekend ahead. I am also very thankful that I was able to snap out of my funk so that I can be focused on my race which is in a few short days! Today and tomorrow are “rest” so no working out, just seeing clients, writing programs, and cooking- all things I love!
What a difference ONE day (a night’s sleep, actually) made for my mood and outlook. HAPPY FRIDAY!
Have you ever been in a funk? How long did it last? What do you do to get yourself out of a funk?
