Taking my joie de vivre back

20130614_151836I wanted to recap the super fun weekend I had, but I didn’t get my photos edited so it’ll have to wait. Suffice it to say, it was a great time and I love my new ink.

It’s not a secret that sometimes I struggle finding my happy or the anxiety gets the best of me, but I fight  like hell to keep my zest. I haven’t been having a hard of a time as some lately, but Life has been an effort.

It’s funny how weekends away from life rejuvenate you. I don’t know about you, but a little time away and laughs with a good friend brought me back ready to go. I’m feeling energized about my todo list and ready to attack life.

Sure it might change. Sometimes life brings me down or something makes my  heart and soul heavy but then BAM! Something always brings me back to the place where I’m ready to go. I’ve worked long and hard to find coping mechanisms to get back to happy as soon as I can.

What works for me? It’s generally a break or something fun, sometimes it’s as little as a dance party in my office or making a new skirt. What can I say? As much fun as that Guy I Like is most days, sometimes life is DULL or I’m really down and I have to spice it up. (In the photo above, I was spinning in my office and dancing to T-Swizz’s Trouble. It made me smile.)

So yea, weekends away, laughs with friends, spinning or dancing or seeing a project I’ve done with my hands bring smiles to others. That’s a big portion of what helps me. What do you do to spice up life and get your joie de vivre back?

    Spending time with awesome people and having fun, always lifts me from a funk 🙂 If I had a door I’d shut in and dance. I guess a chair dance party will have to do.

    Talking about my project or plans with someone who is enthusiastic will usually get me on track. The trick is to then grab on to that momentum and run with it.

    Cooking delicious foods and doing something good for someone else!
