Hello October, I know I say this at the beginning of every month but how can it be October already?
All of a sudden the leaves have started to turn so many different and beautiful colors. The temperatures have cooled considerably, my work has slowed down a lot, my favorite holidays are just around the corner. It is my absolute favorite time of year!!! Maybe you can explain to me then why I am in such a funk, Because I surely do not know. There is no specific reason that I can pinpoint. I feel like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. AND I DON’T KNOW WHY!!!!
I went to work the other day and mentioned to a couple of my co-workers that I was in a major funk. They too said they had been in a funk. Wait…. What is going on? So it’s not just me. Strangely knowing that others were feeling the same way didn’t make my funk any better. I just feel bad for them.
So let me see:
It could be because summer is over, nope I am not a big fan of summer and I’m tired of sweating.
It could be because Mercury is in Retrograde, Possible, I will have to think about that.
It could be because my underwear is too tight. That’s all I’m going to say about that.
It could be SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder, It’s hard to believe because I love fall so much.
It could be COVID, I do truly believe that is a big part of the way I feel. I am so tired of hearing
about sickness and death. So many of my friends are sick right now from Covid. It’s so scary.
It could be because I secretly want to be in a rock band and travel the world and perform in a different city every night. I think that would be too tiring, I am a little lazier in my older age.
Or it could be that I am just in a big old temporary funk and I will soon work my way out of it. I think people go through periods in their lives when they think about lost loved ones and times gone by and it makes us a little sad. Maybe the changing of the seasons or a pandemic or having tight underwear makes us realize what we no longer have. Maybe this is a time to focus on what we do have in our lives right now this very minute: Fall leaves falling from the trees, beautiful colors, cooler weather, sweatah weatha, Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming!!!, I am alive healthy and blessed. I will focus on this.
Putting this into words actually makes me feel better already. So thanks for listening and thanks for reading.
And always remember
Love your day your way!!!!
