In a funk...

I am. I have to admit it.

Something is off.

It took me a while to really notice it, to come to terms that something just wasn't right, but it's true.

Did you know? You probably did.

Maybe you sensed my absence and wondered to yourself why I wasn't as bubbly and happy as you're used to in my posts?

I swear I'm always the last to know.

I'm pretty sure someone should invent a "funk-meter" that would allow those of us that live in denial too long to know how deep we're treading before we get to the bottom and wonder how we got there. Right?

My point is that, yes, my name is Kristi and I'm currently in a bit of a funk.
*raises hand appropriately, while looking guilty*
I do hereby solemnly swear that I will work towards getting myself out of said funk, and promise to keep the whining and negativity to a minimum whenever possible.

As always, hugs are necessary and encouraged...even bloggy ones.

And advice? Yes, please. What do you do when life gets you down, when things aren't just right?
How do you pick yourself up?

Admitting it is the first step to recovery, right?
PS-Labeling this post "funk" actually made me giggle.
See, I'm better already.


  1. Hi Kristi,
    Sorry to hear you're in a funk. You're right, though, recognizing it is the firs step. I always try journalling to figure out what might be bothering me. If that doesn't work, I walk, sing, dance, do something to shift my energy. Good luck!

  2. I feel like something is going around the blogging community. Several of the blogs I read have mentioned a 'funk' of sorts. Could it be the time of year? Maybe the fact we all push ourselves so hard that we just need a break?
    I'm sorry to hear about your funk. Hopefully you're able to center yourself soon!

  3. I hear you. I've been there many times. I try to remember that I'm not alone in my funk. Then I eat lots of chocolate or ice cream or chocolate ice cream and watch my favorite movie. Take a break and come back to things when they are fresh again.

  4. Aww Kristi :(
    I'm sorry to hear about your funk. I was in one as well and I'm currently pushing past it... I think. Here is a link that I'm shamelessly going to post here because I feel it might help you out... I know it has helped me this week.
    In the meantime, I'm sending you BIG VIRTUAL BLOGGY HUGS!!!

  5. I feel your pain... I just try and see the good points. Life can always get worse, so strive to keep positive.

    What—are you going to give up? No, I doubt it.
    Shrug it off, look ahead and work at what you can control.

    If it helps, I’ll send a hug your way.

  6. Hello, Kristi. Very sorry to hear of your funk. *offers a bloggy hug* Feel better, okay?


  7. :( I'm sorry. Funks are never good. I eat chocolate when I'm in a funk. Then I end up working out. I hate it but it helps to get my blood flowing again which inspires me mentally and creatively.

  8. I had a feeling something was off... haven't heard from you in a while. Miss you! :)

  9. You guys seriously all make me smile! Thanks for all the well wishes and thoughts.

    I'm currently drinking an iced mocha and the coffee + chocolate is definitely doing wonders. (If only it were that easy!)

    Plan on working out this weekend too...a little exercise always helps! :P

  10. Oh Kristi, you're not the only one in a funk! It appears that we're just a funky bunch! Lol. :)

  12. You can't be in a funk, the Red Sox are still doing so well despite the fact they're down four starting pitchers!

    It happens though. But I got defunkified after Nationals. I needed something to get my butt in gear.
    Hope your funk doesn't last long!
