Holiday blues. Joy and kindness isn’t always the feelings that cloud our worlds during this month. Some days aren’t so easy. Whether it be that you are away from family, you don’t have a significant other and wish you did, you’ve experienced the loss of a loved one or pet, or this time of year always gives you the blues for any other reason. Today I feel kind of “blah”. I wanted to write something silly or share another tradition, yet each time I try to write it, I smash DELETE repeatedly and stare at the screen wondering what to say. Don’t cry for me (as one of my best friends would say), the funk I’m in today will be temporary. I felt the need to share it because whatever else I would’ve posted wouldn’t have been authentic and gives the false sense that I’m immune to bad days. With that being said, the best way I can get myself out of my funk is as cheesy as it gets. I will either listen to Christmas music/carols, watch a Christmas movie, or listen to and sing sad music. I can’t be the only one who listens to sad things to feel better, am I right? (cricket’s chirp)
On a side note, I watched Jingle Jangle and it was amazing. The music and singing was fun, the story was cute, and it was the right amount of predictable. It’s a 9/10 for me! Check it out if you like musicals. If you aren’t, just give it a try. It wasn’t overwhelming.
I’ll keep this short, mostly because I have some editing to do and to be frank, I’m wanting to get out of this funk asap. I hope that you all have a good day. Be kind out there and check on your people. I’m sure they would feel happy to know that you are thinking of them!
