Wonderful Wednesdays

Well, folks it’s that time again–Wonderful Wednesday, when we look at the good stuff in our lives to get over the hump of the week!

I’m in a weird mood lately. I’m not working on any of my projects well. I can’t focus on tv. I’m restless and lazy at the same time. I’ve not been commenting on many blogs and when I do, I’m not really adding much to the conversation (hi ControverSunday peeps!). I’ve got lots of thoughts, but can’t seem to make them come out of my brain in word making ways that make any kind of sense.

I think it’s because we wrapped up so much BIG stuff over the last couple of weeks. My birthday, Jackson’s birthday, N.C.’s show, my mom’s visit, a big on-going project for a beta client, and a couple of projects at work. Not to say that there’s not still stuff going on (there’s always stuff going on), but it’s like this HUGE piece of it is done and now I’m kind of…unsettled now.

Now, before you start thinking I’m bitching about things calming down, I’m not. But surely I’m not the only one who’s felt this weird un-anchored feeling after a big project or stressful event is over..am I?

So where’s the wonderful in all this? Well, I’m giving myself  permission to go with those feelings. I’m doing some work, but I’m not forcing myself to work on a million things at once. I’m reading blogs, and doing some commenting, but I’m not beating myself up over “less than” comments. I’m not pushing myself to get back into the go-go-go just yet. I’m allowing myself to just sit. Or just look out the window. Or just be mindless. Or go to bed before 1am. I’m ALLOWING myself to come out of this weird funky feeling rather than forcing myself to just push through it. I don’t do that all the time–there’s always something to do, something to rush to, something to work on. But I’m letting myself take things a little slower. I’ll get back to the crazy pace soon enough. I’ll get out of this strange feeling, and back into the frantic pace, but until then, it’s actually pretty wonderful to just…be.

So what’s wonderful in your world? Let me know in the comments, or blog it up and I’ll link you up below!

I think it’s great that you’re giving yourself the space to do that.

In my world of wonderfulness–I bought baby clothes yesterday for the first time ever. Yeah…I think my life is becoming a smidge baby consumed, but that’s okay.

That’s good for you to allow yourself time for that. At times, I’m still mentally in Hawaii and I’ve been super slow this week. But instead of getting frustrated, I have to accept it and hope that the weekend will help get me back on LA time. ^_^

I know that feeling: it’s like a weird physical-mental restlessness, where nothing seems like the right thing, but not doing anything doesn’t feel right either.

Slowing down is good. I am a fan of it. 🙂
