Where's the Sunshine and Rainbows?

"The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions." 
 ~Ellen Glasgow~

I try to keep my blog upbeat and happy and, honestly, I haven't really felt that way lately.  So, I've been coming up dry whenever I think about writing a new post.  Finally, I have decided that I'm just going to write how I feel because this blog is meant to be a true representation of me and a way for me to express myself.  I wouldn't be being honest to myself or you if I always pretended that life was full of sunshine and rainbows.

Lately, I've been finding myself wearing my comfies for too much of the day, hardly ever putting on any make up, and being super tired.  So tired that yesterday I actually put Abby down for a  morning nap and she didn't take one but I did.  She wasn't crying but just playing and talking in her crib... but still, I felt like such a bad Mommy!!!  

I also find myself putting off all chores and responsibilities that I deem unnecessary... washing floors, making certain phone calls.  The problem?  These things are actually necessary!

So, why?  I have lots of reasons... but mainly it has to do with life.  There are times that life just gets the best of you and problems seem bigger and badder than they actually are.  So, as much as I wanted to sleep yesterday afternoon, I decided to work out right before Abby's nap.  I was too sweaty and gross to hop back into bed when she did so I HAD to shower.  This morning I did the same.

Guess what?  I feel better!  Not so tired, more energized and way less like a waste of space!  Amazing!  Who would have thunk? I can see glimpses of the rainbows and sunshine again! 

What do you do when you're in a bit of a rut?  What does it take for you to be 'you' again?

    It's amazing what a difference working out does - I find it energizes me and makes me feel better, tho I still struggle with doing it. I don't have any exercise equipment, so I have to go to the gym, and getting there is harder than it should be.
    Glad it's helping you feel better. :) Like the look of your blog!
