Do you ever get the blues?

tell me more

As a multifaceted woman who wears many hats and honors many titles (gah, can y’all relate?!), the one I’m most proud of is encourager.

Ugh, it’s here. My annual summer blues have officially come home to roost. 

And y’all, it’s SO annoying. 

Like, nothing is *actually* wrong, nothing’s happened (and nothing’s “not happening”) it’s just that time of year where I feel blah

I can tell I am not myself. 

I can tell I am not aligned. 

I can tell I am off. 

And there’s nothing to actually attribute or pinpoint it to, either. 

In fact, even having a message come through for me to share with you today was a struggle. 

I was like WTF, I always have something to say, an experience or lesson to extrapolate, some kind of “aha!” moment or breakthrough to pass along. Grrrr!

Nope. Not this week. 

But, then I got to thinking. Maybe that in and of itself is the lesson. 

That sometimes, we’re just gonna feel blah. That sometimes, we just aren’t going to feel like ourselves. And that sometimes, we’re just not gonna have the butterfly or the bunny rabbit or the sparkly unicorn vibes we desire. 

And you know what? 

That’s perfectly a-ok. 

It’s not something to feel shame, guilt or pressure around. 

Instead, it’s something to release, to surrender and dare I say, embrace

Because, if we’re embracing something, we’re actively accepting it instead of fighting it.  

And if we’ve released something, it no longer has power over us and we can move along on our merry little (ok, big!) way. 

So instead of fighting my summer blues, I’m going to be the quiet and gentle observer of my life and will let them be what they are – nothing more, nothing less. 

Something to think about…
