Cold Weather Happiness #5: Look forward

cold weather happiness

Every Sunday during fall and winter (hopefully), I’m going to post what I’m calling “Cold Weather Happiness” – this could be anything from a song to a quote, a picture to a post about a person, lyrics to a description of a favorite place, anything that will remind me to be happy, to fight through the cold, dark place my mind goes to sometimes and remember that it’s not always like this. Read the full description in my first post.

Sometimes it’s okay to struggle

You might’ve noticed the missing Cold Weather Happiness posts from the past two weeks. You also might’ve noticed that I’ve been a little MIA on the blog for the past week or so. I posted a TTT and WoW, but those were both scheduled a couple of weeks ago.

What I’m trying to say is that I have had a really hard week this week. I’ve been really struggling to find things that make me happy. Honestly, I’m even struggling to write this post. I don’t know what to say. I don’t know if I want to say anything.

So what I’m going to do is share some of the things I’m really looking forward to that are coming up soon:

  • December 7 (TOMORROW!) – I’m going to see Eddie Izzard perform in Meridian, MS. A perfect way to inject some humor into my life and get me smiling.
  • December 9 (WEDNESDAY!) – I’m going to Nashville with someone I love to be around to see Eric Hutchinson live for the second time. Road trip with one of the people that’s guaranteed to make me smile and some live music are surefire ways to make me feel good.
  • December 20 – Skype time with one of my best friends, Jo! She is pretty much the one person who gets me without me actually having to say anything. She always makes me feel better – pretty much just by us having a conversation.
  • December 24-27 – I have four days off for Christmas! Plus I finally get my Erin Condren planner so I can start planning a better 2016.

I’m sorry I don’t have more to say right now, but I’m working on it. I love this blog, and I’m going to use it to find my passion again. If I don’t respond to your comments right away, know that I will – it might just take me a day or two longer than normal.

I think what I mean by this post is that I’m telling myself it’s okay to struggle as long as you keep fighting and keep looking forward. And I am. Trust me.
