Funked Out

I’m in a funk. I didn’t really realize how deep of a funk I was in until I realized I barely pick up my camera anymore. It used to be attached to me. I used to carry it around with me hoping a moment would jump out in front of me and beg me to snap it up. I can’t seem to find the love of it at the moment. I think it’s various things that are sucking the joy out of me.

  • Our financial future and not knowing what is going to happen.
  • Feeling so hateful towards myself.
  • The lack of energy because of my health right now.
  • The lack of energy because of my day job.
  • My self-confidence.
  • Lack of funds.
  • Feeling lost.

There you have it. I don’t know what to do about it. I feel like a loser who gave up on her passion but I can feel it still inside of me, I just can’t seem to access it. I’m in the process of working through some stuff and finding the right path for me. I have some days when I don’t feel completely like giving up but most days I just wander through.

Don’t get me wrong, things are good, as good as they can be and we’re lucky. I just feel sort of stuck and I’m sick of it. I need a change as we all do every once and a while.

    Funks happen, but don’t be afraid to talk about it and focus on the positives.  They do exist.

    I hate funks like that. I tend to go through them quite often. (I actually just came out of one a few weeks ago. I couldn’t write anything. It took me weeks to write one very short story. I hated it.) I have no advice for overcoming them, except to try to just push through it. That story did get written, somehow.

    And I so feel you on the financial instability. I’m willing to do the work, but can’t seem to get the hours at my job. I have no idea how to make all of the ends meet… but I supposed I’ll figure it out eventually. I hope things get less stressful for you soon!

      I think a lot of people are in funks right now, it’s so easy to fall into. I’m feeling better, spent some quality time with friends lately, that’s helped. I also joined a gym.
