In a Funk

I have to admit, I really feel like I’ve been in a funk lately I just can’t shake. Every day I wake up and feel a little bit down. Moments throughout the day bring me joy but the overarching feeling is one of sadness. Is it the time of year? It is something larger? Honestly, I’m not quite sure. But it’s hard. And I know I’m not alone in this feeling. I’ve felt brave enough to tell a few friends (in addition t0 my wife) and everyone has been really understanding – some even felt the exact same way. Life is tough. We have everything at our fingertips and yet it’s never enough. The days are busy and long, filled to the brim, and I often find myself longing for my time. More sunlight. More moments. And yet despite my best efforts to make changes, I still struggle. I’m hoping this will pass but I’m also taking a critical look at this time and being honest with myself. Clearly there is something larger at play here but what I don’t quite know yet. It could even be some underlying health issue. I’m taking steps to address this and I hope my post inspires any of you going through something similar to reach out to someone for help and to know you’ll get through this. I know I will. But when I’m not sure quite yet.
