Finally Friday, Winter Doldrums, Contentment and Rest
I feel a bit sad, mopey, and blahhh coming out of the flu and with the cold and dreary weather. My gung ho spirit is not springing right now. I simply acknowledge the fact, let it pass, and pray. What I really want to do is get lost in a couple of books, get more sleep and rest, pray more, study God's word more and just beeeee until this funk passes.
It's ok. It's just this time of year I think. After all, think of it - we've been to Texas, we had the holidays, I've been to Phoenix, the job has been overwhelming trying to get through year end, planned vacations, holidays, and an acquisition on an already packed work load. And now here I sit having come down the slide and landing on my butt with the flu I might add, and I lift up my head finally, and look around like, ok what is next?
So I find myself here in 2019 worn out and beat up before it starts. A part of me wants a do-over. The other part just wants to go back to bed. I realize I still just need to recover from it all. Maybe I'll start my new year in February?
No beating myself up though. It's nothing I've done wrong, or anyone. It's just the winter doldrums after a lot of hoopla of fun things that are now over. I'm content just to sit here and be content and rest and I know that my strength and energy and revival is coming. Til then, I'll work on my business graphics and posts, strategize a bit, connect with friends and family, read, watch my favorite YouTubes and just enjoy life in the valley for a while. It's all good. Life is good.
