I've been in a funk. I want this blog to be positive and uplifting but let's face it-some days I'm not. I have a hundred ideas floating around in my head and I have no idea where to begin. So I made myself sit down to write in hopes that some clarity will come to me!
Funk reason #1:
I was playing around with my banner one day and completely deleted the one that Cindy made for me so I needed something fast. I quickly created one in Picasa and, even though I really didn't like it, I had to have something.
It didn't really inspire me to write any new posts. Hence the quietness on the blog.
I like my new one better. It's more me and I was ready for a change anyway.
Funk reason #2:
I've been slightly injured. My legs, feet, and knees were aching so much. Not fun when you are trying to finish up Insanity. I attribute it to bad form during lunges and trying too hard to keep up with the superheroes on the screen. Thank goodness last week was my recovery week. I took full advantage and allowed myself to do lower impact workouts and walks. I stretched a lot with bands and the roller and now I'm feeling tons better. I'm on to the Max workouts in Insanity and I'm paying special attention to my form and modifying when I need to. Seriously important so I don't take myself out of commission in these next few weeks.
Funk reason #3:
(I'm going to sound very pathetic over this one)
Our favorite show, Chuck, is over! Needless to say, there were tons of tears shed on my end. We really loved that show. It was the only show for four years that we really loved watching together. And it didn't end perfect. I wanted it all neatly wrapped up and tied with a bow. Even though I didn't get that, I appreciated the ending. It just has really messed with me. It's like a book that gets under your skin and then you think about it for days. I think I'll be ok though. I'm anxiously awaiting So You Think You Can Dance to start up again. That will help.
Funk reason #4:
Comparison. I have let it creep into all areas of my life. It's stealing my joy and I want it back. Putting my focus back to Jesus is the only way I know how to combat this. (and limit my time looking at other blogs!)
The Message (MSG)
4-5Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don't be impressed with yourself. Don't compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.
Thanks. I'm glad I got all that written out. I've made a to do list and am ready to tackle it. Number one on my list was to write a blog post. Done.
