Ennui and Rocky Days

I’m in a bit of a funk today.It’s bright and sunny, but it’s still cold, and I have a bit of ennui (ennui is “a metaphysical angst,” according to Gilmore Girls).

I feel like I have so much to do, but I can’t seem to find the motivation to do any of it. Anyone else feel this way? I want to be productive and keep moving forward…I just feel stuck at the moment. I know that perseverance and hard work will pay off…but can I put off the hard work until tomorrow? 🙂 Blast procrastination. I generally like to keep things positive on the blog, but I just thought I’d be honest with you about my feelings today.

This is when I have to remember that everyone goes through ups and downs, and the important thing is to remember that this, too, shall pass. I know one day I’ll look back on this period of my life and think to myself, that may have been a bit rocky, but see how far you’ve come? You wished, you dreamt, and you accomplished.

So, I think I’ll put on some good music, have a good dance around the house, and know that there is light at the end of the tunnel…

What do you do to get yourself out of the doldrums?

  1. When I get stuck and liable to procrastinate, I get on my knees, declare my inability to get anything done and ask God to help me out. It’s the only way that has worked for any length of time for me 🙂

    That’s such wonderful advice, Rachel. Thank you for helping me to remember that’s really the only way! xx

    Hehe..Gilmore Girls and ennui. 🙂
    Sorry you’re in a funky mood, Spammy. I love you and your are amazing. It will pass! I would make you something yummy to cheer you up, but it would be gross by the time it got to you.
