31 Days of 'Tude

Saturday, March 02, 2013

So I have decided this evening that I am going to do something big for the month of March. As Major Payne said, I have and attitudinal problem that needs some readjusting. lol

So for the month of March, I am going to do 31 days of 'Tude! What I am doing is making some positive attitude changes and blogging about it throughout the month.

SO with March 1st, I could have started with having a better attitude about having to get up early to go help my husband who had a flat tire on the way home from work this morning. Instead of a good attitude, I was annoyed that I had to get out of bed early. I did get up and go get him but when I got back, I got back in bed. Then a while later, he got me up again to take him to get a new tire. Again, I was annoyed. Okay so I didn't start out the month well but at that point, I hadn't made the decision to adjust my attitude,

After I got to the tire place, I was sitting in the car and it dawned on me that I could really use a attitude adjustment. It wasn't my husband's fault that he had a flat tire. I also didn't need to sleep all day. I needed to change my attitude.

I came to the realization that if my attitude changed about my day and my journey, I would see more progress. I know I have said it time and time again that I need to speak positive and not listen to or speak negative things. I have said it and not stuck with it. Now I am making it my focus for March.

So with that being said, I am planning to find a positive thought for each day. I will use that thought throughout the day and share it in a blog each day. Yeah you read that right, I am going to do a blog each day. That is my plan and I am going to really work hard to carry it out.

My positive thought for March 1st was that I CAN be positive everyday. I CAN see things in a positive light. I CAN see beyond what the scale says. I CAN see the other accomplishments that I have had along the way.

I know that is more than one thought for the 1st of the month but I had a really great conversation with my Spark BFF tonight and I had some great realizations come through that conversation.

So, I know this is going to post on the 2nd but I will still do a blog for the 2nd later today. I am going to head to bed and get some sleep.

Much love and positive thoughts!

    I know I'm going to enjoy your March blogs. One thing I have recently realized is that I need to be more faithful to my body. I'd forgotten that I've been abusing IT with my bad health habits. Thank you, Lord, for this reminder.
Love you, Mom emoticon emoticon

    Good for YOU Susan! Do you have a smart phone? You can get Spark Quotes sent to your phone every day. Some of them have been my favorites, some are thought provoking, some are inspiring, and almost all are positive. Looking forward to reading your blogs.

    This is a great idea. I've been trying for the past year to keep my attitude positive. It works! I have noticed that if I am around negative people I start being negative. For me it is easy to follow in their path of negativity. I'm not sure why it is harder for me to stay positive. I've been trying to be positive in my attitude and I like the results. The day is so much more pleasant.

    Sometimes each one of us need a 'tude adjustment.

    Well it's no surprise that I love Major Payne, I knew we were meant to be friends! emoticon

I love any goals that involve blogs, because, well I'm kinda selfish and I love your blogs! emoticon

I think we get so caught up in the physical part of this journey, that emotional/mental/positive attitude stuff can get pushed aside. I'm not trying to down play the physical... water, exercise, nutrition is all important... but if we aren't in it with the right attitude it is so much harder all around.

I love what you are doing here, and I think we can all benefit from what you said and find a way to incorporate it into our own lives. emoticon emoticon emoticon
