I'm in a Funk {from Yanet the Human}

I've been feeling kind of blah lately. I was hoping I would snap out of it after vacation but I still feel uninspired and unmotivated to take on any projects. I think it's partly the laid-back schedule of summer. But I know it's also because I've been letting myself go down Comparison Road. Not a good path.

So true. I need to remember that quote more often. In the spirit of going down Sunny Street, here are some pictures that bring me lots of JOY!

As I was going through my photographs for this post, I found lots of snapshots of my life that make my heart rejoice. I need to concentrate on that. Somehow projects don't seem as important. 

I'll be back Saturday to let you know where I'm doing a guest post. Until then, I hope you find things that make you joyful!

What a lovely series, Yanet! Those yellow daisies gave me a bright jolt and I just could not stop looking at them --SO pretty! :)

I love that shot of your boy reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid. That's one of my son's favorite books. :)

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

I love that shot of the pitcher of daisies too! Gorgeous with the fluffy clouds behind them.

I've gone down that comparison path myself. I don't like it when I do but I do eventually make that U turn!

I hope you have great rest of the week!

I haven't been too inspired either. Luckily it hasn't bothered me much and I have enjoyed the break, but my poor little blog feels kinda neglected. I love your photos and enjoy those posts.

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

i am feeling like that right now, too. having no house to be in and do any big projects, i have seen my numbers crawl along, and it is making me feel a loss of steam. i don' thave anything exciting going on on my blog and i find myself looking at all these other fabulous ones and while i love the ideas, there is a little sense of jealousy that i am doing nothing great right now. i think we all go through it.... let's hang in there and get through it together. i love your blog for you. the real you. you are funny, spirited, a good mom, and have a fun and eclectic style. remember that.

We're on the same road. How come we didn't bump into each other?
I see why all those pictures give you joy. :) I like the little feet on the high chair. And the daisies!

Jane @ Jane's Junk and Treasures said...

I was just over at Cassie's blog......and I feel the same way!! I have so many pieces of furniture in my shed waiting for me and every night when I get home from work I just sit on my patio and read magazines!

We BBQ every night and just hang.

I just have been enjoying myself.....no stress!

Love the photos!! I'm a feet picture taker too!! ha

Yanet... We ALL need a break! I closed down The Homeless Finch for my 12 day vacation in France and returned only to post a quick little announcement that, like the French, I was taking the rest of August off!!!! lol This is the FIRST time in almost a month that I have even read the blogs. Wanted to make sure a few of my northern, coastal friends were taken Hurricane Irene seriously. Anyhow.....love the toenail polish! Fun stuff. :) Lesley

I know how you feel. The shark room is taking forever but I have no motivation to finish it.
I love your photos and always hold on to what makes you smile. :)

So so true! Your post made me smile. Those toes ate crazy!

Karrie said...

Beautiful :)I love your toe ring!!!!!!!!

Joanna said...

Always hold on to those things that make you smile!!

Your toes/feet look just like mine! Haha. Strange observation but with your rainbow toes I thought that instantly! And your toe ring is fantastic!!

I think we all find ourselves going down that road once and a while...the key is to remember that the Joneses aren't who we should be trying to keep up with.

Are we better people than we were the day before? That's the real key...only comparing ourselves to ourselves.

Tara said...

We've all been there. You made an excellent choice posting things that make you happy. Its a great way to begin to change your focus.

Paula said...

Photos of things that make you happy is a great way to get over a not-so-happy mood.

It's hard not to compare yourself to others when there are so many great projects to be found in blogland.
