not happy, not sad

i've been feeling this weird energy lately. basically i feel like i'm not really happy but i'm not sad either. i'm just, well, blah. i can't shake it. there's nothing really wrong. i do feel sort of lonely but other than that i'm fine with work, working out, eating right, etc. etc.

any ideas? what do you do when you feel this way? what should i do?

I have no ideas. But I'm in a funk lately too and I've got my eyes open for any advice you may get!

Sorry to hear your not feeling "regular" (if that fits. It makes me think of going to the bathroom regularly but you get what I mean right?). I hate when i can't seem to find any reason for being... blank...

It's a new year & maybe you are feeling that you haven't made any new changes, etc.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
Didn't you have a rollercoaster year in '08? Maybe your mind just needs to rest. No extreme ups and downs. Just a plateau. Perhaps this is a good thing and it's your body/mind's way of healing, so to speak.
No MAS.

Sometimes you just need to lay low. Read some books, take up a new hobby, cleaning/organizing your house can sometimes put some structure back into your life.
I'm feeling the same way too. Kind of apathetic. I get like this every year around this time.
For me, it's a combo of the excitement of the holidays being over, the cold, dark and dreary winter days, being cooped up indoors most of the day, warm weather seems so far away. It's just a blah time of year.
Plus now I've got the added stress of the economy and worries about possible layoffs at my job.

It's a struggle fighting the urge to just stay in my pj's and bathrobe all day and not go out but I find that making myself get out definitely makes me feel better. I try to make plans to get together with friends, gives me something to look forward to.
And I try not to slack off on eating well and exercising. I just got back on my treadmill today after being lazy for the past 4 weeks and it definitely made a difference in my mood/motivation today.
Occasionally though, I do allow myself to just curl up on my couch in my pj's with a good book or movie.

I hope you feel better soon.

thanks ladies!!

yes i did have a very rough 2008. i've been doing a lot of reading and spending time alone but dating a little bit. i went to a movie and dinner (by myself) tonight. i'm feeling better. i actually tried acupuncture yesterday. my skin is a mess (dark spots from acne). i don't feel good about it. anyway, i did a vision board, i've been writing in my journal.sorry i'm rambling. thanks for the suggestions. i want a good 2009, hopefully this fog will lift.

I think it's great that you went to dinner & a movie alone. This is something I need to do. I've always felt I would be uncomfortable doing it, but I need to step out of my comfort zone.

To be honest, I've always felt this way, not happy, not sad. I'm not sure that I have ever been truly happy. I've had some wonderful moments in my life, but there seems to be an empty spot in me. Not sure what it is.

For me, it's mostly the weather. I hate bad weather, and I hate driving in bad weather, and it makes me stressed and sad. I've been dealing with a funk for about a month. Sucks.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because itís dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that itís about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being ďPC,Ē youíre not being forward-thinking or unique. Youíre buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and youíre keeping those systems in place."

oh i always go to movies and/or to eat by myself. that's not a big deal to me. i always have a magazine or book with me so at lunch/dinner i'm not just staring off into space or "looking lonely"....

i can honestly say that i often feel happy but lately i felt off. as i thought about it i realized it probably had a lot to do with the fact that my baby that i miscarried would have been due this week. even though i'm at peace with the relationship being over and even the miscarriage i still felt a little sad this week.

today in church the message was about your spirit. it was the 4th part of a series called extreme makeover - mind, body, soul and spirit - that my church was doing. anyway, i had a big old cry at the end of the sermon and i felt an amazing release of tension. on the way to church i played this song called "i almost let go" then in church at the end of the sermon they same the same song...i started crying like a baby. i felt my strength was renewed. i feel like God was telling me not to give up...don't let go!!!

so thanks ladies, i feel a turnaround coming....
