Do you ever have a day when you feel like the world is falling down around you? You know how a windshield will get hit with a rock and at fist there is just a chip. As time goes on a crack will spread and then another until the entire windshield is shattered, but still intact. However, you know if you hit one big bump it will fall to pieces. This is how my life is feeling at the moment. Really, it could be a lot worse, but I am having a hell of a time trying to make it work right now. I even tried to smile and offer affirmations and couldn’t pick my mood up. That is supposed to work!
So I started thinking… life doesn’t put road blocks up on positive streets so either I need to rethink my plans or accept the learning opportunities placed before me and tackle each new challenge. When feeling this way is usually when I would say I deserve a big fat greasy cheeseburger, french fries and a shake. Today I have decided I deserve to do something that will really make me feel better. I am taking a healthy lunch from home and focusing on what will really make me feel better, attending to my health and true well being. I am sure you have heard exercise releases endorphins that make you happy… bring on the freakin’ endorphins! I have also heard that drinking water can help with stress and I am willing to give that a try. In yoga they teach that the breath is healing. Right now I am breathing deep and focusing on the beauty in the world around me. Life is meant to work out… sometimes getting there is a challenge, but it will work out.
I haven’t done great with the 50/15 challenge this week, but I will get it done! I am so excited to have so many awesome people taking that on. It inspires me.
Today will be better than yesterday!
