There's an upside to hitting proverbial rock bottom

Some days feel like…well…there’s no other word for it…blah…

…have you noticed how contagious they are?

What brings them on…are we to blame in some way, or do we just put it down to the weather?

I usually get them when I’m doing something I don't want to do...over and over again...

…or working hard on something and getting nowhere.

The solution for me is to take a deep dive, hit the proverbial rock bottom as quickly as possible…

...so I can bounce back up again. Yes, I know myself that well (it’s been a lifetime).

Do you feel blah?

 I’m writing about it today because, yes…I feel the blahs coming on…

…maybe I spent too long scrolling through the news…things I can’t do anything about…things as far from my front door as you can get.

...perhaps its impatience with my business...it takes time, my mentor keeps reminding me.

The problem with the blahs…they're hard to define…even the word sounds…blah…

Serendipity in action…

I checked my email before calling it a day…a newsletter I'm following had just arrived…

…the lead article was about the desert in Arizona, a place we visited some years ago and loved…my blahs suddenly evaporated…the memory of it refocused me…instantly…

I had the solution to my blahs all along…in my head…it just needed connecting…right time, right place…serendipity in action…blahs gone…a sense of hope...

Ups and downs…

Sometimes obstacles can be a guiding light…perhaps fate really does decide our future…perhaps I need to trust more.

As I look back over my life, there have been ups…those amazing feel-good moments…

…but it’s the downs, the blahs…those lingering episodes that taught me the most about myself.

Are you being fulfilled?

The next time you feel the blahs coming on, ask yourself, am I being fulfilled? Connect to a time in your mind when you were…use it as fuel to lift you up…

...maybe there are some decisions you need to make…what have you been putting off?

Decide, make a plan…take action…

…above all...be kind to yourself…
