We welcome Jordyn from our Marketing Team as she shares a personal post about the being in a “funk”. Thank you Jordyn for your vulnerability and willingness to share about what God taught you. We are grateful for your heart and wisdom.
Do you ever wake up on the “wrong side of the bed”? Whether it’s a bad dream, a night of tossing and turning, or simply just a bad mood, we all have those morning we wake up in a less-than-pleasant mood.
Recently, I woke up on the “wrong side of the bed.” Instantly after my alarm sounded, I woke up and was flat out crabby. I wasn’t crabby because I had a rough day ahead or because I hadn’t had my morning coffee, I just woke up in a funk caused by a bad dream.
I rushed to get ready and get out the door for work, forgetting it was trash day, which made me even more behind schedule and added to my mood. As I drove my car out of my neighborhood, my morning instantly changed upon one person’s action.
A sweet, elderly woman who frequently takes morning walks was swaying along at her own pace and simply gave me the biggest glistening grin and an enthusiastic wave. It immediately made smile, shifted my mood, and made me slow down. I loved that she was walking at her own pace, loving life, waving to everyone who drives by in a frantic hurry.
Her action made me realize that I have a choice in how I act and how I handle my emotions. I decided I would refuse to let the enemy try to convince me it’s okay to go through an entire day in a funk, not acting like myself. Don’t get me wrong, I understand we all have those days. But, I’ve decided not to let those funks control me. I have the freedom to break free from those emotions, and I will choose to.
