Get Out Of Your Funk
I want to talk about funk today. The kind of funk that clouds your mind and makes you feel stuck. I want to reiterate that I do not claim to have all the answers. I have just been through these things that I choose to talk about before and I have some tips that have helped me along in my battles with these different problems. Now, I have definitely had times where I felt like I was in a funk. I have felt like I am stuck in the same place every single day after day and that I was not making an impact on anything around me. So I want to take some time today to give you guys some advice and share with you what I have done in the past to deal with the funk that has come over me.
Some of these things have helped me get in that proper “champion” mode, because we all go through times where you do not feel like doing anything. You are going to go through times where you do not even want to get out of bed. You are going to go through times where you feel like you are not supported. You are going to go through times where you feel like you are alone. You are human, alright? You have emotions. That is natural, but at the same time there are some ways that you can get back up out of that funk and that is what life is all about, right? Getting back up, getting out of that funk, and getting back on track in your life in making minor changes to produce a major comeback.
One of the things that I have always come back to when I have found myself in a funk is this: Be yourself. I find far too often that my funk comes from me feeling like a stranger to who I really am because I am spending so much time trying to please the world and everyone around me to the point where I forget what it was like to just be me. Now I am not telling you to be a jerk, or be rude if it comes naturally to you. I am not giving you permission to never improve upon yourself, because maybe there are somethings in your life that you would be much better off if you took the time to change and fix those things. If that is you, then you might need to make a change, okay? But what I am saying is that it is helpful to be who you are at your core when you feel foggy about your life. Now I do not want to be the only person in this world, but I do ask myself this question, “If it were just me alone in this world, who would I be and how would I act?” The point is to be who you are authentically instead of pretending to be somebody else to impress or please other people in your life. If you can be who you actually are, then that can seriously help to pull you out of your funk.
It all starts with you.
