During my week off, I also dealt with some of my daughter's fourth grade drama, and I learned of several friends who are struggling with various life issues right now. This cold arctic weather is not helping my mood. Life just gets heavy sometimes, doesn't it? Have you hit a blah phase or can you relate?
Today I have actively had to try to change my mood. The first thing I started with was reading my Bible. My reading reminded me that I really just need to be grateful. I have so many things to be thankful for and I could easily generate a long list of those things. Although, my funk still continues a bit, I feel a bit more hopeful. It seems clear to me that gratitude is the start to the cure for the blahs. I have a lot of good things and people in my life.
Next time you have the blahs, try making a mental list of the things you are grateful for. I can't guarantee that you will instantly snap out of your mood, but I can attest to the fact that it will lift your spirit. Some days are just harder than others. We all experience them. Reach for your blessings. Here is a hug and a smile for you. Have a great day!
"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." I Thessalonians 5:18.
