Wifey’s & Gentlemen,
I have been putting off working on this blog because my mood just hasn’t been right.
I know it happens to the best of us, but I feel like, despite some of the highlights, I am having a pretty rough go of it.
The hits seem to keep coming and coming + I feel the positivity draining from my soul. You know those moments where you start to expect the worst and get into a cycle of negative thinking that just attracts MORE negativity?
That’s where I am right now.
Sometimes, when I get this way, I am able to gently coax myself out of the shadows. I can find a solution when I quiet my mind and give myself grace and understanding.
Today is not one of those days.
Today I just want to feel bad, stew in my self-pity, and go to bed with a big bowl of pasta.
If you’re waiting for the part of this entry where I turn it all around + try to find a link between this little emotional meltdown and the topic for today’s blog, think again, friends!
Look, I believe in positivity and finding the strength to push through as much as the next gal.
Still, I know I can’t be alone in thinking that sometimes, trying to fake a positive attitude causes more harm than good.
Just because Miss Perfect instagram model says she beats her blues by drinking tea and writing in her gratitude journal, doesn’t make it tangible and/or applicable to everyone all the time.
I’d even wager to guess that sometimes, even our favorite Miss Perfects have moments just like mine.
They choose to be sad and stubborn because it’s what feels right for them at the moment.
I think it’s okay to let your bad moods be bad without fear or judgment.
I know I won’t feel this way forever.
Tomorrow, after giving myself the space to feel shitty, I will likely be able to come up with viable solutions to my problems.
…and I really appreciate ya’ll who have stuck with me this far. I promise I’m done ranting now!
