I’ve been in a funk lately, one that is especially deep today. I’m not completely sure what it is about, but I can’t seem to break out of it.

I have some ideas of the causes but they shouldn’t be getting me this down. I think the chief concern recently is my health: I dislocated my toe, and it isn’t healing; I’ve been like shit for weeks; I’ve been sleeping like shit for weeks and getting heart palpitations recently, which scares the bejeezus out of me. And to top it off, I haven’t exercised in weeks beyond my daily 1.7 mile walk to and from the train stations – which ends up frustrating me more as I get fat and more out of shape.

And I’ve been just generally stressed, which never works out well for me. It feels like my life has been WORK > CHORES > TV > BED on weekdays, and CHORES > TV > BED on weekends, with little time for personal stuff like birding and design projects.

So, starting today I’m going to do everything I can to get myself together. Positive attitude is the first step, and I’m going to use this blog to help support that by posting at least one positive thing every day in August.
