Darker Than Normal 26.02.2015

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Darker Than Normal

Hello Lovelies!
How are you all doing?
Over three whole weeks since I last posted.....sorry about that.
I've been crazy busy at work and occupying my free time with some behind the scenes blogging. I'm hoping I can show you what I've been working on within the next couple of weeks, but until then, I'm keeping it all rather hush hush. I'm excited about how my secret blogging project is progressing and can't wait to share all with you very soon.
Today I thought I'd share some lovely, bright and vibrant pictures that I took last week. Pictures of tulips that I picked up from the florist down the road. I love the warmth from these pictures, as they make me feel all giddy about the thought of Spring creeping around the corner.

Not normally one to moan, but I'm feeling the need for Springtime or at least a spot of sunshine. I like to think of myself as a happy person, but every now and then the blues get the better of me and I end up feeling a tad glum for no reason at all (especially during this time of the year).

It's my need for sunshine and warmth that draws me towards bright happy objects like these tulips. They help lighten my mood when it's feeling heavier and darker than normal.
Colour lifts my mood.

Writing this post also reminds me how much my blog lifts my mood. I get a huge amount of happiness from working on my blog and thank you all for encouraging me to continue with my blogging.

When I feel glum, I don't often feel like sitting at my laptop and blogging. I guess that's why I haven't blogged in some weeks.
It's a funny feeling, Similar to when I can't be bothered to go to the gym, but when I finally do, I feel great for it afterwards.
When I'm blue, blogging seems like handwork. However, when I finally make the effort to get back to it, I realise just how good it makes me feel. I also realise how much I've missed interacting with you all.
Blogging and sharing, lifts my mood.

It's a strange post today, more like a diary entry.
What I'm getting at though, is thats it's important to find your happy place. Especially on those days when your mood it feeling gloomier than normal.
Find your happy outlet..... a boost of colour, some interaction with like minded people, a good work out at the gym, a good ol' crafty project or simply a bunch of tulips.
What ever you need to lift your mood.

What brings you back to your happy place? Once you know the answer to that question, I urge you not to forget it. Ask that question when you next feel a tad down and remind yourself of your answer.
What lifts your mood? for me.....a spot of blogging and a bright bunch of Springtime tulips, I'm going to try and not forget that.
I'm feeling chirpier now. Thanks!
