This post was inspired by a bad morning recently that I didn’t want to turn into a bad day. I was lacking sleep (insomnia sucks) and was adjusting to a new eating style so my body was a bit in flux and angry with me.
My attitude that day was so bad I couldn’t even stand myself, so why can’t I turn it around? And I did.
I catch myself a lot of the times telling myself “tomorrow is a new day” or “things will be better tomorrow.” On the particular day mentioned above, I decided that’s not good enough. We don’t have to have an entire bad day. I took an extra long walk after lunch, parking my car at the far end of where I work. I re-focused on the good rather than dwelling on the million things (it seems) in my life that is a challenge right now.
By the time I got back to my office, having given myself a pep talk, it was like my bad morning never happened. I stopped, re-set and re-tuned my day. As I’ve written before, we are responsible for the energy we bring into spaces, and that includes the energy we bring toward ourselves.
Happy Friday, friends. I hope you have a good day today!
