How to get out of a funk.
How do I get out of this funk?More than that, but a huge block. In the last few days I've been in a funky place. I feel unproductive in every aspect of my life. Nothing is progressing. No wait loss, poor food choices, zero exercise, grouchy, no prayer and Bible reading. Poor connection with hubby. I'm just feeling disconnected and all over the place.
Everything I wrote seemed bad. Posts sounded disjointed, unclear. My train of thought would veer off topic. Book outlines were okay but when I'd get to writing and it wasn't close to topic. Grammar was bad. Tools of the trade - words, sentences, structure were off. I felt like a failure a phony. I've never claimed to be a great writer but I am making mistakes that wouldn't pass 8th grade English class. The fact that I failed 2nd grade phonics, comes back to me and makes me feel like I can't do this! Most of the time I'm positive and up beat. But not lately.
Well how did I get out of it?
I prayed and took some advise to get back on track.
Make a list - a plan.Got to get a plan on paper. I need to see where I'm going. If I don't like where I'm heading, I need to stop and make a correction. The only way I know my direction, is from my map-my plan-my list.
Make small changes.
I want to be perfect all at once. But I'm human with limitations. So to help me I've got to accept that I can only do so much and to just try to make small changes at a time. Each small step will become big over time. When I am faithful, that is where I find joy.
Think about positive happy things.God has called me to write and usually I might even suffer from being too confident in my writing. I'll come back to something I've written and think..that's really good! :) I have to remember the positive in my life; the things I am thankful for. God has blessed me, and on funky days I need to get my head thinking about the positive.
I'm about to launch a free ebook for my website (see what nice things people have said about it here). This is huge. I started seriously blogging not even a year ago and now. I will now have a book out there. I have made BIG progress. I just have to remember this when I feel the funk creeping up.
If you want a copy of the book please sign up for emails! On October 8th you will get your free copy to download.
