For the past couple of days I’ve been in a funk. Why?…I don’t know..I’m just in a funky mood. If I really take the time to think about it I can probably say… my kids are getting on my damn nerves….my wife is getting on my damn nerves…and I’m getting on my damn nerves..oops..did I just say that? LOL But guess what…I’m not really trying to psycho-analyze myself right now. I’m in my funk and for the moment I’m o.k. with my funk. My kids can smell it, my wife can see it, and I can feel it. I know it’s temporary…so i’m taking my time experiencing it. Unfortunately, while I let my funk parlay….I’m also funking up my relationship.
But you know what yall…even when you want to be funky and when you’re o.k. with being all up in your funk…If you’ve got a wife and children that love you, they somehow have a way of magically making your funk disappear. To be real it’s gradual…but before you know it…it’s gone. Just yesterday…while i was sitting in my funk Aiyana gave me a kiss on my forehead, then a kiss on my left eye, then a kiss on my right eye, then a kiss on my left cheek, then a kiss on my right cheek, then a kiss on my lips. In that moment I felt lighter, I felt cleaner, I felt better. Earlier tonight my 5 year old daughter lay next to me rubbing my belly while I was chillin’ in the bed. In that moment I felt lighter, I felt cleaner, I felt better.
With all that being said….you are probably gonna be funky at some point or another in your life. And it’s a good chance your funk will probably start to funk up your relationships. Just know that it’s all good…..it’s a part of life. As long as you got people around you that genuinely love you ..I guarantee you will begin to feel lighter, cleaner, and better…and ultimately STOP FUNKING UP YOUR RELATIONSHIP.
