Fighting a lack-lustre spirit.

Some days I wake up and think 'this is just not going to happen'. I follow my normal routine, but my body feels heavy and my spirit lacks lustre to the extreme. Today started like that. I took the dogs for a walk at the leash-free park, and it was so muddy we nearly sank. I couldn't get joy out of the walk no matter how hard I tried, even though the dogs were obviously happy and having a great time. I came home and felt that black cloud threatening to come over me.

But did I succumb to it? I read a quote on Facebook that said 'If we don't walk on the rainy days we will never reach our destination.' This was what I needed to read. I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and made a cuppa. I ate a bit of choccy. I turned on a Cyndi Lauper CD and cleaned out the bedroom wardrobe, a job well over-due. The believe it or not, the most amazing creative spurt took over me, and I have had creative, awesomely delicious energy all afternoon!!!!

So, on those days, when you feel like a rock trying to float on a pond, just put one foot in front of the other, and trust that the feeling will eventually lift.

Enjoy each moment, they are all precious.
