My Heart is on my Sleeve


I wear my heart on my sleeve, always have. For some reason I can't help it and I can't hide it. This is not a good quality to have, I consider it my weakness. Throughout my life I have battled what I would call Blue Feelings. Not necessarily depression, just blues. Sometimes I can snap out of it quickly and other times the blues just linger under the surface of my happiness like fog.

Feeling blue today for not any reason at all. Hope it shakes free from me soon...

I have so many things to be grateful for and so many things that bring me joy and happiness that the blues shouldn't be here, but they are. I hate it.

Maybe I'll start a new meme...Beat the Blues...or something. What are you blue about? How do you plan to turn it around?

I know how you feel. I can reason out why I should be happy sometimes, but that doesn't mean I can shake the blues.

Hugs

Hope it doesn't last too long.

I definitely get the blues. Can't say there's anything that really snaps me out of it, other than just time.

Aww.... I know exactly what you mean. I struggle with this too. Starbucks helps me... temporarily at least :)

Blue over photos my hubby took tonight of me and kiddos and I looked horrible-fat-hair a mess-just plain terrible and no one said a word to me about how bad I looked-if they did I probably would have been blue about that too. lol
Still trying to get in shape and take off 25 pounds and it stinks-it was much easier getting it on than off.
I am normally a pretty upbeat person too so when I have these blue moments they make me bummed that I am blue-does that make sense?! lol
Hope that the rest of your day was better-I am going to sleep soon and hoping and praying that tomorrow will be a better day-that I will have the will power to not eat what I shouldn't and that maybe I will magically wake up thinner-a girl can dream right?!
Happy Day Tomorrow to YOU!

It strikes me sometimes too. Tot giggles always cheer me up...and if that doesn't work, shoes cheer me up...and if that doesn't cheer me up, then I need a martini and a funny movie!
Hope you feel better soon!
Best,
Tina

Hugs to you!!! I'm sorry for the BLUE. Hope it gets better soon. We all have those days sometimes, and really, sleep helps me. :) And sunshine, and baby kisses. I say you should try and find any of those things! ;)

I have this too. I feel like my world is great. A life many would love to have. I have an awesome husband, a great son, and get to stay home with no worries. But sometimes I am just not happy. It isn't directed towards anything. I just am not happy. I guess its because life sometimes can just be so hard. Right now dealing with the hubby being gone, everything breaking in the house, and Ryan being a handful doesn't help. Ryan's birthday is July 10th and I am expecting that day to be pretty bad. Just missing the hubby and doing what we would normally do on Ryan's birthday. But {{{Brandi}}} hugs to you. Just know that you aren't alone. I am not really sure what gets me out of the funk. I love a good storm. I know this might be weird but rain and a good thunderstorm always calms me down and makes me happy. And a good book. Just to take me to another place for a little while.
