Time to defunk

I've been in a sort of funk lately, and as a result haven't been posting much. A funk of being flat broke and unsuccessfully looking for a job, and being angry, bitter, and frustrated about the whole ordeal. It's very demotivating! And it's turned my brain into a whole bundle of negative thoughts to the point where even watching certain things on television will set me off into a bad day because I will go into fits of jealousy over the stupidest thing, such as the home makeover or house hunting shows, or even people winning things on the Price is Right. It's really pathetic and not the kind of person I really am, or want to be. And I really believe that being negative and feeling sorry for yourself only brings more bad things to you. So it's time to get rid of the funk. It won't happen overnight, but I'm trying.
I finally have a new photo posted on The Understory.



I have been reading a lot on Buddhism and enjoying it.
Now I'm off to start defunking!

Your comment touches me because I live with the same report and the same thoughts...
It's a good thing to be aware as you are that this world is very superficial and useless things are more important than happiness and simplicity...
Unfortunately it is complicated but it is important for each one to find its path, its way, and try to be happy without hurting others ... Your lectures on Buddhism can help you...
But I thought that every body can to find happyness...We just have only to be honest with ourself.
We have to be aware that happyness may be a beautifull photo, a beautifull sunrise, a beaufull bird 's song...
My happyness is to look at your creations...

Thank you so much, and you are absolutely right. I don't care about having a lot of material things, I just get frustrated about things like still not having a car, or being able to support myself on my own at this time. :( But I will be just fine. It will all work out eventually, I'm sure. :)

I can relate. First of all, I had a stint of unemployment last year. I moved to Baltimore and just never got hired. anywhere. Never even had any interviews. It was so depressing and I have the tendency to dwell on the negative and be a bit dark. So time passed ( a full 8 months) and I got into etsy (with minimal success to this day, a year later) and out of the blue got a phone call, interview, and hired. It was sudden and I was so appreciative. I think that no matter how you choose to deal with it on a daily basis, it helps to know that anywhere, any day, as long as you are doing all you can to help yourself out something will come. Good luck, wish you all the best. Off to check out your new photos!

We all feel that way sometimes.I have been thinking lately that my whole life has been 1 mistake after the other.I read buddisim too,the author,Thich Nhat Hanh is very uplifting.I bought his book on Anger after I took it out from the library.He says to buy "happy eggs" from happy chickens to eat & put in your body,"happy milk"from happy cows...alot of food we injest is from angry animals.My friends laughed at me,but I`m now buying from the local farm store instead of walmart as I know I`m putting happy eggs in my body from free range chickens.It has made me feel better,but I know how you feel,you are a talented artist & things will pick up,just stay positive,phylliso
