Case Of The Mondays

I can usually say that I almost never catch a case of the Mondays. But when I do it's usually a little more legitimate than simply being upset that the weekend is over.

I feel as though people who have disdain for what they do in their life wake up on Mondays (or even hit the hay on Sunday) with a nasty, anxious, feeling. I am finally at a point in my life where I like my job, I get enough rest, and I handle my business, therefor there is little to be anxious or upset about.

But, on those Mondays where I do feel down in the dumps (like today), there are ways I try to turn the day around.

  1. Dress comfortably or wear an accessory that I really like. Fun underwear totally counts.
  2. Have a slightly more special than usual breakfast and lunch.
  3. Make a list of tasks to do before the day ends. My mood may make me forget something which will make me feel worse.
  4. Talk to someone with the power to cheer me up. 
  5. Decompress after work. Drink. Shower. Face-mask. Nail-painting. More drinking. 
  6. Forget about the day. The worse you can do is dwell on your negative feelings.

Any of these can be applied to any bad day and can be completely different. Everyone processes a sucky day differently. 

But the bottom line is to not let a less than great day ruin your vibe. Throw back your shoulders, slap on a smile, and beat Monday with a positive attitude.

Humpday Update #21

My last hiatus was long and much needed.

Feeling ALL the feels, getting sick, working on side projects, and just being completely exhausted in general kept me from thinking straight enough to form sentences; let alone a blog post.

The hiatus was initially kicked off by the beginning of election season and all the horrific stuff that seemed to follow. 2016 has been a pretty gross year and I think everyone is just ready for January. Even as I tried to think of things to update you on I found it hard to maneuver around the stuff that sucks. But I did it.

I've been ignoring ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to do with the election. And not just the presidential election. In my hometown of Baltimore, even local elections are smothered in controversy and sheer stupidity. Corrupt politicians trying to run again and young newcomers claiming they know how to fix everything. Don't even get me started on the presidential election. I know who I'm voting for and that's all that matters.

2016 Wrap-Up: "Next Year I'll Do Something"

I'm not 100% sure what my resolution(s) for 2016 even was... I'm sure I set one; pretty sure anyway. But then again I don't know when I finally realized that resolutions are pretty stupid. I mean, it's mostly just something no one ever completes right? 
I guess it's just not for everybody. There are those people who can set and reach clear goals of any difficulty. I, unfortunately, am not one of those people. I've learned over this past year that I just sort of need to live "free form". I don't really meet goals or milestones and when I don't I feel like I failed somehow. 
I'd rather feel refreshed and excited by trying something new or completing something old than like I have meet goals to please others or myself. 
Because let's be honest, those resolutions aren't really for you. If they were they'd be personal, not blasted all over social media so we can feel good about others seeing how hard we're trying. Hopefully 2017…

Humpday Update #23: "Project Motivation"

So what you probably can't tell from my absence is that I've been secretly working on "Project Motivation". I talk a lot about making lists, getting things done, and tackling personal projects; as well as being tired, worn out, and just plain not in the mood. All the while "Project Motivation" has been a go.

Christmas was the best time to really put things into action. I got the whole week off from work which was much needed to recharge and focus on things I really wanted to do.

I spent time with family, my boyfriend, and my fur babies and recently finally went shopping. Getting mostly things to change my living space up including a new desk and trinkets to draw me back into drawing and designing. I grabbed a graphic novel I've been wanting to start and fun bits and bobs.

The major bits of "Project Motivation" have been set into motion or completed.
