To wallow or not to wallow.
That was the question for me this weekend.
I was so tired, layering insomnia on top of life’s usual frustrations.
Let me just say that I do not wear exhaustion well.
I was crabby, and crabby is not a good color for me.
And I kind of wanted to do nothing. Not even fun stuff like going to a food festival. In fact, simmering in my setbacks sounded like the best plan.
I mean I’ve spent my fair share of moments curled up in a wallow. Wallowing has its place, right? I’m pretty sure it’s responsible for the invention of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
But then I thought of dog poo (sorry if this ruins Chunky Monkey ice cream for you).
If you step in dog poo, are you going to stop and stare at the mess on your shoes all day?
Well, no. At least that was what I thought. I think. I was SO tired. But I figured I could at least try some fun…then maybe get some work done.
Of course, fun was kind of awesome. Moving forward got me out of the fog. At least enough to see the stuff that reminds me to keep on keeping on.

There isn’t just one way to comfort.
Wake up taste buds with cucumber & heirloom tomato gazpacho with roasted fennel and basil salsa!
and spicy Thai iced tea
And hello, the Wheel of Kindness!!
Turns out, there’s always an opportunity to spin the wheel of kindness. 🙂
I got to give (and get) a hug.
And seeing the dog adoptions always reminds me that there are others in need of rescue.
One of these days I hope it will be me adopting a dog!
Here’s a sign. Summer reading, totally something to look forward to.
Okay, okay. I get the message.
It’s nice to discover what you can see, if you let yourself.
What are your thoughts on wallowing? How do you bust a funk?
Hope you have a HAPPY week,
