Birthday Funk

As long as I can remember, I have loved celebrating everyone’s birthdays.. However, the last few years my PadmaPhoto own birthday has felt hard. Like the day comes and it reminds me of all the things that I have not accomplished or makes me fear that time is running out. At 42, I guess that is bound to happen. So, I have kind of dreaded it.

Anish really wanted to celebrate my  # birthday  this year. I wanted to say ‘no’ but in lieu of setting a good example of loving oneself, I complied  😂 # childrenarethebestteachers

It was hard to constantly remind myself of not giving into the funk over the weekend. What finally helped was a  # gratitude  meditation and taking time to pause and face my funk. Didn’t I tell you that I became a  # therapist  for a reason, seriously, my mind is one of my worst enemies. Also, there is something about getting away, being in nature and time with loving friends that feels like a remedy for everything.

And thanks everyone for the lovely wishes. I have felt so  # loved .

What do you do to get out of funk?
