Be gone black cloud!

I’ve been glass-half-empty lately. And it’s so not me really. I usually am pretty positive and can find something good in anything that happens, but lately not so much. I need to change this and soon, because I feel ungrateful, spoiled and self-centered. It can’t all be about me and what I want, I know this, and yet I feel let down, somehow, by life.

I have so much to be grateful for, the people in my life who love me and support me, the commodities I have and the freedom I have to choose whatever I want to do, and the health and smarts that allow me to accomplish mostly anything. So why go around with the little black cloud over my head? A cloud, by-the-way, it seems, only I can see.

I’m hopeful though. I know I have a positive, happy nature, so I’m hopeful it will kick back-in soon. Also, the semester is almost over, which means this is my last stretch to get the two manuals I’ve been working on ready to hand-in in their final version and then forget about this work altogether. I’m looking forward to the holiday break, and I think the whole getting away to a warm place will help tons. We will see. Things will get better. They always do.

  1. Oh, lady. You and me, both. I've been so "down in the mouth" lately, and I hate that feeling! We can kick this, I promise!

  2. abbersnail – yes, we can! And we will, I'm sure of it, if only it were sooner than later, I would truly appreciate it! 😉

  3. Warmth and sun will cure you, for sure! Until then, do what I often do and fake it 'til you make it. I often force myself to smile at people, ask strangers how their day is going, etc. until my niceness actually makes me feel better. It works! Oh, and I also add Bailey's to my chai latte on occasion. That works, too. 🙂

  4. I'm trying to get the Christmas spirit, and I'm not there yet..

  5. Wait until the new year, new beginnings and all that – cold weather and darkness gets everyone down. IT WILL BE ALRIGHT AGAIN!! and…Happy Christmas!

  6. L – That is great advice, I've tried it before and it definitely helps, both the faking it and the little booze on the side ;)Buffalodick – When you least expect it it will show up and grab you by the lapel. The Sarjent – It will be, I'm sure 🙂 Merry Christmas to you too!
