I am not sure if its the winter blues, thanks to the annoyingly cold temps here lately, or the post holidays let down. But let me tell you I have had a case of the blah blah blahs lately!
I was motivated for about one whole day around New Years Day and since then I have been sucked in my the couch. Granted, I am still getting my day to day responsibilities done. House is clean, kids are bathed and fed, I go to work, do my Bible study, take the dog out, walk on the treadmill (not often, I won’t lie), you know the routine of life is getting done. But I just can’t seem to shake this blah feeling. I just can’t seem to get excited about anything.
I have spent a majority of my life being wound up like a top, ready to spin out of control. And spinning I have done. Lately I am feeling more like a hammock, gently swaying through each day.
I have been toying with some new ideas for this blog, new ideas for home to-do projects, books to read, but I can’t seem to take any action.
I think God is speaking to me through the blahs. I keep hearing a gentle whisper say sometimes the blahs are okay. You are busy enough, enjoy the blah. Don’t stop doing the routine, it needs to be done. Don’t stop thinking, dreaming, and journaling…there will be a time for all of those to evolve. Just embrace the blah and rest.
So I dare not listen to that still small voice. I am going to embrace the blah. I am going to be thankful that I don’t have to be pulled in a million different directions right now. Everything is happening in HIS perfect timing. I am being a given a season of rest and I need to savor it.
If you see me on the street or talk to me on the phone and I don’t seem ready to tackle the world. Don’t be alarmed, be happy that I am resting. Also if I gain 10 pounds in this resting process, don’t judge! I will hopefully shed those when I shed the blah!
