It’s becoming a bit of a habit really isn’t it. A bad habit at that. I almost always start the month with a blog post about how much I wish it wasn’t that mother already because I’m not ready and haven’t achieved what I wanted to achieve in the month prior.
June is no different.
June… nooooooooo not June.
June means half the year gone pretty much. It’s all the mid year crazy stuff, ballet concert, tax time, and birthday mayhem all rolled into one.
Worst of all… June is winter.
I toyed with the idea of trying to embrace Autumn for a little while… but now it’s gone before I even had a chance. Ok yeah, I was never really that keen on the idea of trying to love Autumn I confess… and I am less keen on the idea of trying to love winter. It’s cold and grey and damp, and did I mention cold?
So here I am, on the first of June feeling all grumpy and stagnant. Despite the fact that we have a million things on right now and I am trying to slot events in side ways to make it all fit, I still feel like something needs to happen, but nothing will…
Woah, if I have SAD (seasonal adjustment disorder) already how on earth am I going to make it until spring?
Something has to give…. maybe a little woo-woo goodness and Feng Shui is the way to go. I love the idea that just popping a bowl of water in that corner can make everything ok. Sure… a bowl of water would only stay in that corner for 4.7 seconds with my small boy around, but still… it’s a nice concept.
Anyone else out there battling the SADs….. what are you secret tricks to keep going and stay positive until the sun returns?
