Monday Mood Post

A blog  friend of mine publishes a mood board every Monday in her blog.  Duni's blog--Duni's Studio--usually posts fashion stuff with a specific color combination. Here's one of her posts that I particularly liked.  It got me to thinking . . . . . . 

I have been feeling a little down lately, so I decided to try to improve my mood and understand why I am feeling like I do.  One thing is that sales have been down, not nearly what they had been in similar portions of previous years.  I know that the nature of sales are up and down, but this was and is becoming extended for most of the first six months of this year! 

So . . . first I prayed and then I counted my blessings--an awesome place to start! Then I went to the computer--you know, we all live by the info we can glean from our computer searches :)  I looked up some articles on expectations and depression.  I didn't find anything on that subject because they were all talking about unrealistic expectations and I don't feel my simple expectations are outrageous. But I did find this article that I know will help me.

I thought I would pass it along---sort of my Monday Mood Post!   Might be good for you too! (Then I drew a little picture):

Enjoy the link!  Even tho I know you don't want to hear it--I know that I didn't!  But seriously, many of us who spend our days creatively and at a computer, know that we don't spend enough time with our physical needs.  Ever thought that it might be contributing to your lack of creativity?

Wonderful post! And thank you so much for the linky love :)
The picture you drew is fantastic! I try not to let my mood be affected by sales and yes, I could probably do with more exercise too!

You drew that? Cool! I wish I could draw! Being able to draw a fun cartoon should be a mood booster =)

Sometimes I feel down, even when I know I shouldn't, and it gets hard for me to shake the funk.

I LOVE your drawing! I've been trying to walk each day (I started June 1). I feel so much better when I can get outside and MOVE! Tax season is especially rough with 2+ sedentary jobs! I'm either sitting in front of a computer and/or a sewing machine most of the day every day.
My sales tend to slack off this time of year. I'm trying to think of it as "fallow" time-when I can get ready for the holidays and craft fairs and try some new things. Your aprons are doing well, though!
