Kick it into high gear!

What's up with all the BLAHs?

You heard me. Why is everyone feeling like this lately? It's like an epidemic. I'm inspired, I'm not inspired. I'm depressed, I'm motivated. I'm in denial, I'm taking things for granted....Jeez, I can't turn on the tv without seeing something, slit-my-wrist, depressing. From the rich becoming pizza delivery boys to students who may be homeless any day now, I just can't stand it anymore. It's bad enough the "E" is shite but it's worst when you find yourself helpless to help others...but you know what really creases me? It's as if the whole world has gone mad. There's no sense of professionalism or politeness. No sense of community or customer service. It's as if we've already given up...

Maybe that's just my observations but it's scary. It's sad, and it's made me realize that we need to heal. We need a purpose and we need faith. I'm more a spiritualist but with all that's happened in the world, it does make you waver your beliefs...it does make you wonder....so instead of giving into all that is negative, I've been remaining positive. Some may say I'm in denial and some may say that I'm just plain stupid, but the fact of the matter is....we need to believe. If we stop, everything will fall apart. This should be the time when we band together. This is the time to be kind and do your best to be the best human being you can be. Instead, I'm faced with anger, hate, pettiness, and people who would rather instigate problems instead of being strong and stepping up. It's all around me and it's a sadness you can't wash away with tears. It's a pain you can't cure without looking inside yourself. How can we start the cycle of change? By realizing that it takes each one of us to make a difference. It's a chain effect and if we can spend all our energy being optimistic instead of bitter, we can resolve things a heck of a lot faster.

I guess I'm just tired. Everyone is going through something right now and I truly believe that this is the time to Pay It Forward. One nice gesture. One random act of kindness. Can't you smile and say "thank you" when someone opens the door for you? Can't you drop off some canned goods to the food bank? Can't you make a phone call and tell your friends and loved ones you're thinking of them? Can't you stop to think before you react? It's that simple. I'm by no means a saint but I'm making an effort. There are times when I want to go off, but I hold my tongue. We just need to remember that we have the power to change. I'm not oblivious to the truth. I am well aware of everything that's going on around me...but by feeding into the negative, we aren't helping ourselves out and we aren't helping our families out. It's the reason why I keep pushing forward. Keep writing and believing that any day now, we'll see improvements.

Now that Spring is here, we must rejoice! Let's do the Springtime Dance and kick all the blahs that plague us! Who's with me?

How do you celebrate Spring?

Well said. I've been so blah and depressed lately and I KNOW I need to kick that attitude to the curb. I've been telling myself that and its time to do it! Spring cleaning!

Man, I haven't been feeling blah. I'm excited to be writing again, excited about my WIP - so much so that I can't stop thinking about it. I just want to spend a whole day doing nothing but writing. And probably will on Thursday.

I refuse to give in to the blahs! One of my favorite ways to kick the blahs in the nuts is to get in the kitchen and make something awesome and complicated. Or I could write ten pages today! Considering my deadline, I think I'll go with that.

Thanks for sharing ladies! I've been in and out of blahs..but mostly, inspired. There's so much to do with this YA I'm working on and it takes up too much of my time to think about anything else. So, I don't think it's a bad thing. Just want more hours in a day to get things done!

It almost seems like a conspiracy! You turn on the television and it seems we're constantly being told that the country is in a downward spiral...but why does it have to be? I'm not going hungry, my loved ones are safe. I agree with you, it's much better to fill the world with positive energy. Your universe is what you make of it.

Good luck on the YA!!

You're a little anti blah pixie!

How do I kick the blahs? I take my vitamins and soak up the sun. I feel all better now.

Jeannie, you are too cool for school! That's why I love ya!

Eva, you've got to load up on those vitamins or the kids are gonna drive you to blahsville. **Muah**
