My weekend was simply divine. On Friday night I opted to stay home and had a blissful time in bed, reading, watching reruns of my Favourite comedy series and sipping some wine. This was after I'd messaged Sasha boné asking if she wanted to do movies and drinks and she replied my message THREE hours later saying Okay. Turned out the moment had passed and I was just fine in my little corner of the world. Much later at night a friend whom I'd made late night plans with called to say he was on his way but I was way too comfortable at home to bother with getting off the bed, so I cancelled.
The weekend continued in a blissful haze, I eventually went out on Saturday and had one of those moments that's just so much fun, you have no idea where the time went. And that's how I was in that moment until Sunday came.
Sunday was the climax. That special someone came into town and as though that wasn't climatic enough we found ourselves at the best birthday party everrrrrr and I found myself seated on the same table with Don Jazzy. Gasp!
Like that wasn't enough, we got invited to this other after party that put me in the "I must make money in this life" mood. LOL. It was ethereal. That's the only word that describes it.
Yet I woke up today, hale and hearty with the week looking very promising, BUT I found myself feeling some type of way. I scrolled through my phone looking for someone to call, someone to talk to. The only problem was I couldn't find the words to say. I didn't know just how I was feeling. I wasn't depressed, I wasn't unhappy. I'm not broke or lacking anything. I'm in good health and everything is fine, to the best of my knowledge. There's nothing in particular lacking in my life right now. Yet, I had this feeling of emptiness. I felt so indescribably empty.
Out of ideas, I then decided to pray. I didn't ask for anything, I simply thanked God. It was a prayer of worship, thanksgiving and gratitude. And then I committed everything to God, just in case there's something untoward my spirit is sensing that I can't see with the physical eyes.
I did feel better afterwards but I found I was still in need of some cheering up. And I had just the right medicine; Instagram!
You see, I'm becoming addicted to IG, not because of the fancy pictures, the "perfect" lives or the glamour, but because it's the one stop place for the most hilarious jokes. Just follow the right handles and you would often find most of your day filled with laughter.
With God's assurance in my mind and laughter in my spirit, my mood was suddenly lifted and I'm feeling great again. Once again, I'm ready to take on the world! Yippee!!!
I'd like to know what you do when you're feeling down. Do you wait till it blows over? Is there someone in particular you talk to? Do you ignore the feeling and just get on with life? Do you, perhaps, "ingest" something (LOL)? Does sex boost your mood? Is there something you do that gets you out of the blues? What's your "Feel Good" go to?
Do share, I might like to try your tips too.
I wish us all a week that might start in uncertainty but would surely end with fulfillment and praise.
