For someone with a really, really good life, nice home, talent that reveals itself in many areas, a radio show that I adore doing and people (I hear) adore listening to, healthy family and pets … even with all that life can be a bit disturbing sometimes. Why I constantly ask myself? I had absolutely no idea, seriously, but I suspected that I was suffering from burnout. I was “doing” non-stop (enjoyable, yes) things but too much and all of a sudden my brain turned off and I was engulfed by a fatigue that persisted too long. Instead of worrying about it I thought of it as taking a vacation from being Judy Stadt.
“I’m just not feeling happy.” OK, so I have an answer to that question of why am I not happy… nothing happened, I’m sleeping, I’m eating etc. Happiness comes in moments like a butterfly interrupting the rest of your life’s routine daily experiences … that’s how you know the difference between being happy and not. What I do is simple. I wait it out. I don’t dwell over the lack of happiness, or about the unproductive and (imagined) wasted time going by. I choose to try to be positive, watch good movies (I love movies) and make sure I eat delicious food (not always the most healthy), but yummy-and you know what???? IT ALWAYS PASSES.
