February Funk

I was all set to post something awesome when I woke up this morning.. my creative juices were flowing and plus I had something fun to share (recent online shopping arrivals).

But you know what?

I am in a serious funk.

For the past few weeks I've been crying at the drop of a hat. Getting furious at myself for no particular reason.

And of course this morning I woke up and could not for the LIFE of me find the remote control for my camera that lets me take pictures of myself. I usually store it on top of my dresser (yes, awesome storage location) or in the drawer with all my camera stuff.

Yeah, gone.

-------------

It comes and goes lately, this feeling of being dissatisfied with myself. Who the heck am I anymore?

I feel like if the 18-year-old Sarah saw herself right now.... she would NOT be happy.

That girl had so much. Even if it was just illusion, she felt like she could take on the world and win.

-------------

This post could not be more random even if I tried... but hey, that's what's up. Why my posts here are meh at best. My head is too full of ick to let anything good come out.

Is anyone else suffering majorly from a case of February Funk?

Please tell me I'm not the only one.

I'm definitely in a February funk as well. I had high hopes 2011 would kick 2010's butt, but it's not living up to my expectations yet! Grr.

Brittney said...

Yes. I feel the same way.

You are totally not the only one going through the February Funk. Hang in there, take it easy on yourself, and make some time to have a little fun. xoxo

stephanie said...

You're definitely not the only one- I just feel very blegh.

PinkSass said...

Hugs. It's always better to talk about it and get it it. I feel that then things will start to change. Every month or day or week can't be great. xoxo

Brittany said...

Sending good thoughts your way! You'll get through it - positive things happen at the most random times.

Oh honey, I've got a major case of the February Funk. I am all sorts of crabby and emo for no good reason! I blame the lack of sun and the fact that I've gained like 10 pounds since Christmas. Bleh.

Keep your chin up sweetie, sunny skies will be here soon.

The Branches said...

I feel like I am losing my mind almost every day these days! And I cannot begin to TELL you the things I LOSE! I cannot find crap anymore....I totally feel ya! <3 Becky

Lacey Jo said...

I got through this several times a year. And it never makes any sense to me why. It always gets better though, promise! ;-)

bunny said...

I've had a major case of the february funk- It's like anything can bring me to tears.. happy or sad. I hope you feel better soon and find your remote! Sending good vibes your way :)

Crying at the drop of a hat, not knowing what you're doing with your life? I am SO with you. Email if you feel like you need to chat.

Mrs. Smith said...

You are so not alone. The tale end of these winter months are always full of the sads for me. Hopefully springtime will find its way to you soon and cheer you up!!

(And don't be so hard on yourself... those camera remotes are small. In fact, I am not quite sure where mine is at the moment...)

Tara said...

You're definitely not alone! I feel the same way!

Allison said...

I feel like I have nothing to be happy about these days, but when it gets warmer it'll be better. Spring is already around the corner. At least we didn't get fat.

Ashley said...

Girl, all of our 18 yr old selves want to smack our new, older selves. February is hard!!

Cindy said...

Sarah,

SMC girls have to stick together! :) Glad to "meet" another SMC sister!! :)

Kristen said...

I like to call it the winter doldrums. I've got it a little bit too! Luckily, spring and sunshine are {hopefully!} right around the corner

Hey Classy & Fabulous! Have you heard of Gabrielle Bernstein? She is this new happiness guru for 20 something generation. I bought her book: Add More -Ing to Your Life, A Hip Guide to Happiness and it's really helped me get out of those 'blahs' especially in the winter months. Her website has a lot of great video blogs, past lectures and resources, check her out sometime! http://gabbyb.tv/

Geez - something about this week must have just been terrible for us all. Sending you good thoughts and hoping things get better!

WhatMissLoves said...

Hey girl :) Sounds like you're having a really rough time. What you may need is to just back away and do something for yourself that you love, that will help you forget all the yucky stuff that's been going on.

Feel free to email someone who's been there: whatmissloves@gmail.com

and follow my blog sometime: http://whatmissloves.blogspot.com/

Cheer up!

Kate said...

I am so with you on this! I have cried in the car- twice!- within one week. And then I remember that people can see me and I cry more. Yikes. Hope you're feeling better soon!
