If I can wake up every day (well, here lately anyhow) feeling like I'd rather cry than eat breakfast part of me wonders if maybe I shouldn't just cry. Then again, I tried that for two or three days solid and it didn't really get me anywhere. Sure, I pull off the puffy eyes and congested voice better than just about anyone but did I feel any better? No.
So today when I woke up feeling exactly the same, I did what I've already been doing for months - tried to figure out how to make myself like this place... tried to figure out what I'm doing that isn't working... tried to fix whatever it is that's broken.
Then I remembered something.
When what you're doing isn't working, you should do something different. A wise teacher once told me, "Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect." So if you're doing something wrong don't keep doing it hoping to get it right... do it right if you want to get it right.
So, I'm trying something new today. I'm telling you I'm in a funk and that's the first step in finding the brighter side. What's next? I'll let you know when I get there.
