Lately

(top image taken by Nicola)
Lately I have been feeling rather droopy mouthed. I cannot quite put my finger on why though. 
I think the main thing is that, my life, right now, is rather dull. It lacks creativity. It lacks fun. It lacks adventure.
If you are my good friend, or follow me on twitter, you may know that I wish to move to Scotland. Some people have said that it's called 'running away'! Even so, who really cares? I need more than this right now. Alot more.

  1. I don't think its running away. It's just a change of scenery. I hope you're feeling a bit better soon. It might just be those ole winter blues. I get them really bad. xx

  2. Aw, don't be sad. It's probably this time of year...we don't see much daylight and other than Christmas it's all a bit dull and boring. You'll get through it!

  3. sometimes running away turns out to be the best thing that ever happens.

    sometimes not running away just means that you're stuck and sinking.
    sometimes a change of scenery can be just the tonic
    but sometimes it can be horrible and the worst time. But if that's what was needed then it all works out for the best.

    If it's something that you can do? Just do it.
    As someone who needs to escape to the country a lot, i think feeling restless can only be cured by a good car trip.

  5. I think you will find from all the comments that everyone feels this way at some point. I have been dreaming of moving somewhere in the UK since I was a little girl. Unfortunately, there is something called the habituation effect which says that everyone has a baseline level of happiness and once you adapt to the new situation you return back to average levels. That being said I do think certain people are suited to the ethos of certain locations, and flourish when placed in that environment. I think a good question to ask yourself is: when you think about a new life in Scotland, how different of a person do you picture yourself? Are you the same person or does Scotland magically make your life better and in what ways does the actual location (not just the idea of it) make you the person you want to be?

  6. Have you been to Scotland? Definitely visit it and then make your move if you love it! :) It's funny because I wish to live in the English countryside, just outside of London :) I moved 16 hours away from my home state and I'm not a big fan of living in the south. Living in a suburb of Atlanta makes it totally bearable. xx

  7. Oh Charlotte, I too am feeling glum chum. But I spoke to my friend Kitty & she said that negative thinking only draws negativity & not to wallow. I think she's right. We need to slap ourselves & be more pro-active! It's so easy to just sit & dream & wake up two years later having done nothing real. We have nothing to lose by making steps, however small, to make differences in or lives. If we sit & do nothing, accepting our current state of mediocrity, we shall simply stagnate & our lives will wash away. LET'S DO MORE!!! All my love & huggles. xxx

  9. Aw Charlotte <3 <3 I know the feeling only too well.. it is true that even going somewhere new will eventually be somewhere not so new and just as boring.. but running away can be tempting. You are so creative, I hope you get your mojo back! xxxx

  11. Sometimes you need to step back and realise that you need to inject some more life into your life if you know what I mean! It sounds like you have aknowledged this at least.

    Good luck and I hope you get back on track soon! PS A move to Scotland sounds amazing! x
