"Sun in the Closet"

It's the best expression I have heard in a while....

I heard it this weekend as a good friend assessed my current job and abilities.

"Really Connie? It's like putting the Sun in the closet."

I couldn't help but smile and think....

It's true. You know those moments of shade or maybe even darkness in your life...when the Sun is stuck in the closet?

There come moments in life when we don't have all the answers, when we don't know what direction is best, and when we just don't shine the way we used to...

I think Dr. Seuss said it best in "Oh, the places you'll Go!" when he stated....

"And when you're in a Slump,
you're not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself
is not easily done."

{Yes, I totally just opened the book and looked for this line....}

Not sure what kind of a place I am in but what ever it is, it's not my usual place.

Maybe I am in that place right before the door is ready to open and the Sun is peeking through waiting for the perfect moment to shine bright again and say... "HERE I AM!"

Maybe it's a moment of change and transformation, that I am not quite aware of...or that isn't very clear.

What ever it is, it's a weird place and I am ready for the Sun to shine once more outside the closet....just don't know how to get it going again.

If motivation, and inspiration surround me, then what is stopping me?

No idea.

But, I am ready to let the Sun out of the closet and let it SHINE! Shine. SHINE! Shine.

Finding yourself in a slump ... sucks. Sorry, no better words for it. LOL.

But what I have found to work are two things.

1. Be silent. I have such a hard time doing this. In the sense, that I often like to "run" when I am feeling down. Because sitting still and listening/observing can sometimes bring things to my attention that I rather not hear. But... being silent helps to put everything in focus again.

2. Be thankful. I try to find things that I am thankful for. "Today I am thankful for my daughter. Today I am thankful for ____" Being thankful usually unlocks that door.

Hope you find your center, Amiga. We are always there for you!
