I'm not sure why, but every year around this same time I (Frankie) get in a terrible funk. I shouldn't. I love this time of year. I love the cooler weather and the colors and football and hot chocolate and Halloween and all the things that come with fall, but the last week of October I usually find myself in an awful funk.
This year hasn't been any different. I was hoping it would be. I hope for that every year because I really do love fall and October is my favorite month, but here it is anyway. I get bored with my work and my TV shows and whatever game I'm playing and I don't want to do anything except curl up on the couch in a snuggle blanket and sleep. I just feel blah!
Maybe it's the fact that it is the last week of October and I know that fall is coming to an end and winter is just around the corner. Maybe I'm dreading those long, cold, dark months and it's causing me to miss out on the season that I love. I'm sure that's it. I'm notorious for thinking about the bad stuff the future MIGHT hold and not enjoying the moment that I'm in.
If you're in a funk, don't beat yourself up too badly for it. It's a little easier to get into a funk and a little harder to get out of it when you work from home. Try to figure out why and if you can figure it out then you can work on changing it.
But, sometimes there isn't a reason and that's okay too. Just ride it out because to quote Eric Draven, "It can't rain all the time."
Frankie and Andrea take turns sharing stories. Just good talk over a cup of coffee.
