Everyone gets the FUNK
Do you ever feel sad and yet nothing has really caused it?
You don’t have much to complain about but it seems the FUNK still gets you?
When something bad happens does happen it knock you off kilter and put you in a downward spiral?
What you want to find out is how to avoid the FUNK?
Well the thing is you can’t avoid it. The FUNK gets us all. The FUNK is not something you should try to avoid, be ashamed of, or feel guilty about. If you do it will hunt you down. Rather you should embrace it. Accept it for what it is and work through it. It’s part of life, and if you just pretend it doesn’t exist you will inevitably fall prey to it. It would be the equivalent to saying weeds don’t exists. If you ignore them long enough before you know it they will take over your garden. All of your pretty flowers, plants, and landscaping will be turned to ruin.
Getting in the FUNK must be considered a process. It’s something you have to work through. If you embrace it as part of a process it can be life altering. It can help you get unstuck.-Jeff Olsen
Ancient scripture says the same rain falls on the just and unjust. We can’t understand good unless we feel bad. We can’t understand love unless we’ve been hurt. We can’t understand righteous unless we’ve experienced evil. We can’t know happy without being in the FUNK. It would be like trying to describe the color blue to a person who has always been blind.
Paul wrote a letter to the Romans that said, “We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.”
When something is hard or difficult and adversity it knocking, embrace it. It will refine you like metal in a fire to make you stronger.
The same wind blows on us all, the wind of disappointment, struggle, pain, rejection, embarrassment, heart ache, betrayal, and loneliness. What makes the difference is the set of your sail. – Jim Rohn
