Some weeks I feel light as air
Some weeks I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders
Some weeks I’m me
And some weeks I’m someone else
Does anyone else feel that way? You know sometimes I feel like life is going okay. My family is healthy, my friends are happy; I’m happy socially, mentally, and emotionally. But than there are some weeks where I just feel off. Something isn’t right within me. I feel like me but I don’t at the same time. It’s like I am an outsider in my own body. Just going through the motions. I’m suffering from turmoil with my inner self that is hard to describe.
It’s in those moments I take a step back. I take a deep breath. Close my eyes and remind myself that what I am feeling in this moment is temporary. In that moment I feel weighed down but I always won’t. I have to recollect myself and remember to appreciate what I have. Remember what I’m working towards. That everything I have and will go through has an end goal with me at the end of a rainbow with a pot of gold.
So what do I do when I’m feeling down in the dumps? I either watch Disney movies, comedy movies (like Rush Hour, the best) or do something a bit adventurous. I’ll go mini golfing with my friends or go down to my favorite kayaking spot. I clear my head out of the space it was placed in. I let my body unwind. Once my head is at peace my heart and my body will follow. A distraction can go a long way with smoothing down the bumps in my soul.
And that’s usually how I get out of it. Some weeks are harder than others I won’t lie to you. I’ll have this uncontrollable frustration. I’ll even lash out. However I recognize that within myself and work to push through it. So keep your head up because you are not alone. You never are. People all around the world despite our differences all feel the same way. We all go through happiness, angry, betrayal, anger, and sadness. So you’ll be fine. Pat yourself on the back. You made it this far!
Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results. -Willie Nelson.
