Attitudes

 

We all have attitudes towards events that happen in our life right? I believe so. Difficult times, and or choices we have to make can really have an effect on our feelings about ourselves and how we are perceived towards others. I believe that if we are able to get a handle on our reactions, and adjust our attitudes towards difficult events, we can be far more prosperous.

I was dealt a deck of cards on Monday that made me want to binge eat, and wallow in my sorrows. I told myself, wait, you need to process before you react to the cards you were dealt, and think of how you can effectively solve your problems. I found that all the anxiety I was feeling, all of the angst and the “What am I going to dos” turn into, I can get through this. Hassels ¬†happen everyday. Shoot about 10 happened to me yesterday! I still found time to smile!

So I hope this encourages someone to turn the frown and complaints around and actively process your issues, and find that the solution may be in front of your face while you were too busy wallowing in the negative what if’s. Just a little pick me up for those who are feeling down and out! Hope it helps!

School has started and I will try to keep up with my blog as much as I can, but It may be put in the pile of I can do it later. I have had to look at all of my commitments and had to decide what is more of a priority in my life at the moment.

School is number one, my job is too. I have commitments with my job and volunteering, and working out. My dog is up there high too. Then comes the little things, vacations, friendships and events, outings, fantasy football, ect. Those go on the back burner. Sometimes this is needed. So you wont over commit and under produce. I will keep you guys posted as much as I can!

Gratitude Journal

 

It’s easy to focus on all the hassles in life,

Terribly easy right? You can fall into a negative zone and find your self in negative purgatory at times. Well, I was reading Project light to ¬†life’s latest entry and she mentioned starting a gratitude journal. What is a gratitude journal? It is a journal you keep (Word, One Note, pen and paper) where you right about the positive things that happened in your day. I hear it can boost your mood, and help you get back to the positive zone you once were at. Hey we all need a mood boost here and there, and I know I could sure use one. So I am going to keep one on my wordpad and write about the positive things I can take away from my day. I will let you guys know in seven days how I am doing.

 

So like Oprah says on the sticky up top I am going to write 5 things that went good in my day. Join me if you want and feel free to let me know if it boosts your mood!
