Stuck In a Rut Or Something Worse?

April 15, 2018

 Do you ever just feel like you are stuck in a rut? Ever get those feelings when you just can’t do anything right? Like nothing you do can live up to whatever standard you’ve set?

It’s driving me insane, because I don’t feel like I’m stuck in a rut, I feel useless. And stuck that way. So I guess I’m stuck in a useless rut. This post wasn’t meant to be a rant but unfortunately, this is what you are getting. Because nothing else I’m writing today, apart from my feelings, seems to be working.

It might not seem like a big deal, but I can’t get my head around anything at the moment. Everything I’ve cooked this week has been horrible, every photo I’ve taken is trash, every single little task has taken so much longer than it should have because nothing feels right.

And it’s weird because I’m happy, I’m not that stressed out and I feel like I’m generally on top of things. Or I did. I’m not really sure what’s up with me, or what triggered this weird funk…is mercury still in retrograde? Because having a reason for feeling like this would help.

Note to self: learn about mercury retrograde 

“Out of sorts” is a phrase my mum uses a lot and I honestly don’t think I’ve ever understood it until now. Because that’s exactly how I feel. Maybe I need to take a step back and re-evaluate, maybe I need a break. Maybe I just need some sunshine!

I need something to shake me out of this, thankfully I’m off to a spa night this week in Edinburgh with Sheri so, god willing, some dinner with my girl, a massage and a girly sleepover will help.

Hopefully I’ll feel back to my usual self soon, but for now, send all your positive energy this way.

    I’ve felt like this before, and like you I’m in it again. I’m feeling very OOOEERRRGGGH about a lot of stuff, and I don’t know why. I think it’s just a phase we all seem to pass through every so often, I don’t necessarily think it means we are doing anything wrong, but I think we need to take a little extra care of ourselves when we feel this way. It will pass; it always does. Sending love and good thoughts x

    In exactly the same mood just now! I’ve given myself a night of reading and commenting on blogs (like this one!) and planning some fun stuff for the week, as well as blog stuff. Hope you get out of your funk soon. x

      So many people seem to be feeling the same! A night off definitely sounds good. x
