I've said it before and I'll say it again... when I DISCIPLINE myself to just DO IT, it almost always leads me to happiness~!
I went to bed VERY late and was supposed to work out @ 6 am but that would have given me very few hours... and I overslept.
[ I'd like to interject to say... as much as I VALUE sleep... sometimes I personally find it VERY uplifting to tend to my soul when it is troubled lol... so I laid in bed for a while was unable to sleep and instead decided to read uplifting quotes, pray, and do a little more studying so that when I did get sleepy again, I would have a clear conscious. and... it worked. I am having a great day now despite missing a LITTLe sleep. I've been sleeping 9 hours a night these days . :-) ]
instead of pouting about it and ruining an ENTIRE day for ONE mistake... I CHOSE (operative word) to suck it up, shower and head to the LIB (library for short lol)!
because I had to drop the boytoy(fiance) off at work (he's working near wear I study) and we had limited time, I had to leave the house with no BREAKFAST! GASP!!
-- thankfully, something must have clicked recently because I BYPASSED MCDONALDS, I did not panic, get pissed and cancel the entire study session I had planned from fear of FUTURE hunger (have done that before, when worried I'd be stuck in the LIB with no food for HOURS...) and decided to stay calm, get some coffee and a SUB (footlong ham). So that lasted my entire study session.
*not letting a few minor setbacks ruin my day!
*walking past the cookie and brownie table - THEY WERE FREE- and feeling HAPPY about it
*driving past MCDONALDS
*choosing to walk after leaving the LIB though I was tired, my eyes hurt, and I was in pants... I love to sweat... but ONLY in workout clothes! LOL... I sucked it up today. So take that!
*choosing to Exercise though I had NO PHONE, NO IPOD and NO distractions! ::double GASP:: exercising with just..... nature!? actually ended up being beautiful! It was quickly became a gratitude walk, and instead of focusing on what I didn't have and why the walk wouldn't be great, I CHOSE to smile, hold my head up and be thankful for all the things I DID have at that moment, you know, like AIR to breath, legs to walk, a God to look over me and keep me safe, a break for my tired brain... lol, I could go on and on.... but I want. ::sigh of relief::
* It's only 5 pm... but I wanted to go ahead and write my blog so I can check it off my list!
