autumn grays

You know how some people have the winter blues? Well, I've been having the autumn grays, a seasonal affliction consisting of impromptu sobbing and fleeting moments of existential helplessness brought on by the preponderance of pumpkin paraphrenelia.

I am so much fun to be around these days!!!! 

But after a quick phone call with a good friend who put things into perspective, I realized that a) I'm probably just swelling with pre menstrual emotions b) I have a lot of good things going on in my life and should be grateful, not overwhelmed and c) I'm craaaaaaazy.

So that made me feel better.

And last night, I watched some of the first season of Arrested Development on Netflix and laughed my ass off. Laughter is the best medicine and it's free!!!-- which is great for my non insurance having ass.

I also made a point to go to the meditation room in my office today. Oh my goodness, an office meditation room is just the best idea ever. It was so nice to retreat into this quiet, dimly lit space and sit in stillness. I know I must sound like someone who wears sage oil and eats agave yogurt but I swear it was truly an awesome experience. Now I think I want to create a quiet space in my apt cus I don't think my toilet is appropriate.

Now I'm even more excited for the weekend.
*Tonight Boo and I are meeting up with some mutual friends we haven't seen in ages and going to Mono + Mono, a Korean fried chicken and jazz place. This will either be great or my worst nightmare.

*Tomorrow I have brunch plans with a dear friend at Home.

*And Sunday Boo and I have plans to go to Inwood Hill Park and be around nature. Sage oil and agave yogurt not included.

Hope you have a great weekend, mariposas!!! And, remember, if you're going through the autumn grays, try to find a quiet spot, list all the things that make you happy, and RELAX. Everything will be okay.

Ooh and don't forget daylight savings on Sunday. We have an extra hour of sleep! I feel better already!!!!
