Can you tell I listened to Jessie J on the way to work this morning? "It's ok not be ok..." I love that line. And it's so true.
Some days, I'm just not feeling it. Some days, the alarm clock rings and I want nothing to do with the day ahead. Some days, I'm just feeling overwhelmed and uninspired.
First - it's ok to feel this way. You are normal. We all go through bad days or even bad stretches of time.
On the days when I feel fear and anxiety overwhelming me, I find it's most important to take action. That means fighting against the urge to call in sick and so you can stay in bed. Or fighting the urge to isolate yourself from everyone and all of your responsibilities.
Sometimes all it takes is getting around other people or getting one thing crossed off my to-do list to turn my mood around.
And if that doesn't work, I just keep pushing through the day anyway. Things will turn around... maybe not today, or tomorrow, or next week. But they will. And in the meantime, know that it's ok not to be ok.
