Self-Involvement Is Hitting An All-Time High

For one reason or another, I haven't written about issues or topics that have been weighing on my mind.
Despite the fact that there are usually many.

I am so wrapped up in the fog that is in my mind and permeating every cell that I cannot even begin to tackle other subjects.
Something has happened to me in the past week and a half.

I'll be damned if I could tell you what it is/was.
All I know is that there is a general discontent,
as well as,
a general goo that has slung itself to my very being.

I feel like I have been feeling like this for way too long.
And I just can't take it anymore.

Reading a blog is like scaling Mt. Everest.
Having energy to just get through the day is unheard of.
Patience?
Gone.

I cannot step outside of this funk long enough to enjoy the good things
or wrap my heart around the not-so-good things.

I'm searching myself and looking back trying to find out what exactly
happened.

And nothing has come to me as of yet.

I know that I have been rather cut-off socially due to the demands of part-time preschool teaching and my full-time student status.
I have not given of myself out here
or in real-life.
Other then in the occupations and roles that I have to employ.

My soul has not been fed.
And I feel it.

Could it be possible that my little old soul has a cold?

What do you think?
Do you believe that a soul/a person's essence can suffer from a "cold"?

I have to say that, right now, I am a believer.

Souls suffering from colds - I have to say I never thought of it that way, but I like it (not the cold, the idea!).

I think it's something about this time of year that gets us all in a little bit of a funk.

That being said, are you ok (physically, health-wise)? I had been foggy-headed and headachey and cranky for a little while and come to find out my blood pressure is a bit wonky...

Whether it's your soul with a cold or simply feeling the funk, I hope you feel more "you" soon.

I'm bummed out and exhuasted right now, too. It's November creeping up on us.

Yes, a soul can indeed be sick--have a cold, feel out-of-sorts. I've been there--take time to coddle it, and wrap it up in a warm blanket. I want to see it back again!

Her Grace said...

Definitely sounds like a funk. Can you take a "me" day and rejuvenate?

KC said...

Hope your soul gets well soon. Funks- we've all had them. Good thing they're temporary and make the good times, really good in contrast.

Naturally, I think the funk is trying to tell you something.. and your job is to listen. I can think of a few things but it's not really up to me to say them. :)

Our souls can get colds. Yes. I believe that. A cold of sorts. It fits.

Lay it on me, sister. xoxo

I believe. I do. The sickness passes too, fortunately

Oh, The Joys said...

Take your time and go gently.

Perhaps you need to eat more fish.

Tabba said...

bleck! I'm sorry to say Denguy, I really don't care for fish. I can't even stand the smell of it when it is cooking - it turns my stomach.
I will say that it is one food though I wish I did like.

slackermommy said...

Absolutely! And I love your cold analogy. Like a cold, your soul needs some rest to fight off the cold. Just let it run it's course.

I am here with a vaccination! Or remedy, or what have you. I think you're on to something...souls can definitely get colds.

Here's a virtual hanky, and you're wonderful, please get better.

Or fatigue? Maybe fatigue.
