So Long, January

 

I could lie and pretend January has been a great month. And frankly, I would love to do that because admitting that it hasn’t been is hard. I had really hoped to start this new year off on a optimistic and happy note, but that didn’t exactly happen.  I have felt majorly emotional and lost. Not all the time, not even everyday, but a lot. More than I’d like to feel that way. And I wish I could pinpoint the source but I can’t and that seems to be the real problem here.

I keep having moments of clarity where I think, “what is there to be in a bad mood about?!” or “okay, enough, I’m going to be positive now” but that is so much easier said than done and 5 minutes later I’m back to being a total grouch. I know the steps I need to take to get over my bad mood, but it’s just so hard to put them into practice.

I don’t really know where to go from here, but something’s gotta give.  So I’m saying goodbye to January. I didn’t enjoy you, January. And I don’t think I will miss you any time soon.

I know that February, like January before it, is not going to be magically better. But there’s a million things I’m looking forward to in February and I think I need something to look forward. Because I’m feeling kind of stuck right now.  So here’s the February and all the happiness it has to offer!
