anywhere but here.

ugh. am i ever in a mood today. i don’t usually share too much here when i’m in a funk or down, but honestly, i just don’t have it in me this sunday to write another inspiring post for monday. i’ve tried and tried and sometimes i just get stuck creatively and today is one of those days. i’m feeling a little depressed so when that happens it can be tough to rally and bring you guys what you deserve — some interesting and pretty content. i am just in a state and probably not for any particular reason other than it’s been kind of a lonesome weekend — that kind where you want to be anywhere but here, so let’s go elsewhere together, shall we? let’s go somewhere pretty in pink.

    We all have those days…appreciate your honesty and that you pushed through with another beautiful post! Thanks!

    Great post anyway! I hope you feel better. We all get that.

    Thank you for sharing. You and I are twinning emotionally and it really doesn’t feel good. I am depressed on top of some anger after ending a 17 year relationship; and lonesome. I was daydreaming about the Camino pilgrimage in Spain and living in Portugal yesterday and instead of being inspired, it got worse. I’m blaming the moon & the retrograde (as I always do) and hoping for better times. Hang in there <3 I hope you feel less lonely today. Sheryl

      i’m so sorry to hear you’re feeling down as well, but it sounds as though you have good reason. the good news is you have a whole new adventure ahead of you. i hope your healing comes quickly. you hang in there, too!

    That last pic! Oh my. Sometimes looking at all the beauty somewhere else makes a blah day worse! Sometimes I have to make a list of things that are beautiful in front of me and things I’m thankful for. Usually helps. That or a good cry and chocolate! LOL

      that’s actually quite true. when you’re down in the dumps, sometimes beauty is just too much to take in. i like the idea of making a list of what’s beautiful right in front of you, and what we’re grateful for. thanks, sharron!

    oh girl you are not alone! i woke up in the foulest mood. tried to shake myself out of it with a walk around echo park lake but this case of the mondays has been persistent. thanks for this little splash of color to get me through the day.

    Me too. I’ve been Bitchy McBitcherson all day. My favorite thing above are those pretty stretchers. I bet being carried around on one a la Cleopatra, fanned by hotties and a drink in my hand, would probably make me feel better.

    If one of us could just summon the strength to call the waiter, we could have a little cocktail on those lovely pink beach loungers. At least, in my head we could.

    Sending you love xo
    In order for there to be up, there has to be down….

  10. Hannah says:

    I’m really sorry you’re feeling down. I so appreciate your posts (always interesting and pretty!) and I’m sad that you aren’t feeling so great. I am sending you all the good vibes I can muster from sunny south London xxx

    We must be on the same wavelength because I’ve been feeling the exact same way for the past day or so. Your posts are always refreshing and inspiring to me. I still had to check your blog even in my funk. The melancholy feelings will dissipate, I’m sure of it.

    • victoria says:

      thank you, gigi. today is better – just need to stop listening to the news, i think! i’m so grateful to hear you still check in and get inspired, even when i’m down! thank you!
