Funky town

I am having a hard week and letting things others say get to me so I must remember "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." -Eleanor Roosevelt

I am also coming up to 11 months since my seizure and I am not real sure how to feel. I am in a little bit of a funk I guess. I have this super cute fun baby and three amazing kids plus one wonderful husband and for that I am thankful. For some reason I am in a funk an all around funk.
Cleaning is no fun (not that it ever was), I want to craft but can't decide what I want to do so I do nothing, reading is okay (usually I can read a book in a few day, I have been reading the same one for a week and a half ), I cut my hair (didn't help), I bought new shoes (nothing).
I just can't figure out what the heck is wrong. Maybe I need more sleep and need to stop caring what other's say. I need to not care what they think of me or things I make or my kids or family or whatever. I need to care LESS a lot LESS!!!!

Okay vent is done......I will be back to "normal" (whatever that is) sometime when I feel like it..

Im so sorry Reina...I have days like that too. Pretty often. However, I have ONE things that always helps me. I try to think really hard about someone else (kids, neighbor, someone in the ward, etc.) and just do something nice (usually its food). It always helps because somehow my selfish (NOT that yours are at ALL) thoughts seem to be put in the back of my mind and the people I care about seem to creep towards the front. I call it 'getting lost in service'. I know it sounds redundant but its true it helps. By the way, I can't tell why anyone would ever say anything bad or mean or something negative about you or your family. You have THE CUTEST KIDS ON THE PLANET! You seem like such a great Mom and they are dang blessed to have you. Keep your chin up--you are beautiful! There--there is something someone said about you that you should take to heart:)

I know how you feel. I agree that we have days that. I remember one quote - "Respect everyone, fear no one." Respect everyone, simply because they are a child of God. Fear no one because we are all equal in the eyes of God. No one is better than us and we are not better than anyone else either. Shortly after I moved here I felt the same way you are describing - to the Nth degree. In a chastisement from a friend she told me to get out and serve. I have to say that in following that counsel at that time in my life taught me a very valuable lesson. I would give that same suggestion to you. Maybe there is someone else that is feeling lonely and in a funk. Helping them will help you both. Good luck and feel better!!!!
