I Dropped the Ball

I have been feeling a little out of it lately…

I cannot continue to use being sick as an excuse, but I am discouraged because it put me far behind.  I am determined not to quit or let go, but I am grasping to hang on for the next 4 weeks.

Maybe it is the fact that I am on my 3rd day of giving up coffee.  Or maybe I am just recovering from an extremely emotionally charged week.

Fall is the season of change and we have experienced many changes in our own household.  Changes for the better!

Like, one day it was as if a switch went off and I decided that I wanted to step up my cleaning-game!  This is great news for everyone around me because I don’t allow dishes to pile up, I wipe down the counters, and I sweep up every night.  I like things to be clean, clear, and uncluttered.

I guess that is called being an adult.

It feels like the month of November  came so quickly and we are already discussing Thanksgiving plans.

I have not kept up with my “Transform Your Life Project 2.0” and I am okay with that.  I decided at the end of summer that I was willing to sacrifice that series if it meant that I was focusing on my studies.

I am going to do another project in 2018, but this time around I am going to choose smaller goals and areas of focus for each month of the year.  Please comment below if you have any ideas or suggestions for a “Happiness Project” or “Transform Your Life” style project.  I would also love it if you would like to join me.

I also feel bad about the fact that I have not been working out for a very long time and I am overwhelmed and unsure where to start again.

I think I will try and start again today.

This past weekend it was hard for me to concentrate and I felt like I was on the edge of depression.  Now that I think about it, I do get hits with little bouts of depression in the fall and winter.

This time around I am happy that I was able to recognize it and remind myself that even though life is a little hectic and I feel stressed and worried about my family; I don’t have to allow these worries to take me down and paralyze me.  I also took some time to remember all the blessings that I have in my life.

I am going to focus on that and probably start another gratitude journal.  Depression, doubts, and worries can cast a huge shadow on our lives, but we have the power within us to find beauty in the darkness and step into the light.

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed, discouraged, and like you have dropped the ball?  Comment below to share.

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

❤ Alana
