Forgive me father, for I have sinned...
I have been remiss in my monthly commitment to myself.
It all started on Tuesday, when my joy-inducing activity of Making a Craft, was, well...less than joy-inducing.
And then life happened...an unusually busy Wednesday, with a doctor's appointment that was disappointing, and then I woke up with a head cold on Thursday that left me foggy and unmotivated, and today, I am still feeling the blahs and, of course, beating up on myself for my 3 days of no joy-inducing activities.
I tried really hard to put a spin on it and find the positive - but every spin I thought of was simply a lie.
The truth is that I stopped. And, the BLAHS moved in and the JOY moved out.
As an all-or-nothing type of person, typically I would simply throw the towel in and quit my Month of Joy. I would of accepted defeat and been done. But I am fighting that urge.
So I am starting again.
Left on my list of Joy-Inducing activities are:
Go to a Movie, Paint, Play, Fresh Flowers, Get a Mani and a Pedi, Write a Letter to a Friend, Laugh Out Loud, Write a Poem, Make Goop with the Boys, Clean out a Closet, Add More Color to My World, Write a Love Note, Make S'Mores, Make a Snowman, Do Something Crazy, Have a Date Night, Write a Story, Sing. And, I have a Dance do-over in order.
Today, I will Clean out a Closet. Hell, I'll clean the whole house.
So I'm off to find Joy in a vacuum. Wish me luck.
