Winter time is a tough time for me, I struggle with an attitude problem every year, when the weather turns grey; my mood goes grey too and I have difficulty overcoming it. I’ll get a little more snarky, more prone to complaining than being happy and less excited about the general state of things. When the weather has the audacity to unleash rain during this season, it’s even worse, I would compare my state of mind almost to depressed, I just want to stay home and sleep or watch Netflix or something, anything but leave my place.
I know they have names for it, I don’t care. I have come to call it the Season of my General Discontent. I’m not happy with anything and if I am, it’s short lived. I have my days where it doesn’t affect me and I’m happy regardless, but they aren’t as frequent as I’d like.
I think it has a lot to do with the forced recollection of the prior year, and the “resolutions” of the coming year. I don’t make resolutions really, I just evaluate the prior year and look forward into the next and usually get pissed off at myself for things I didn’t accomplish though I wanted to…I mean.. that’s what the new year is about right, shaming us into action on things we didn’t run with?
