Today was a good day. I got up with a better attitude. I began the day by telling myself the following...
I am creative. I am strong. I am confident. I am beautiful. People like me. I get things done in my home. I am awesome!!!
This is going to sound strange but I said those statements to myself everytime I went to the bathroom. I also said them to myself during commercial breaks and anytime I started to feel down or negative.
I got up and cleaned out my freezer. I cleaned up a couple areas in the house that needed attention. It felt great to get these things done. The fact that I got up with a good attitude and telling myself that I get things done in the house really helped to get me in there to get it done.
I forgot to get dressed so in the evening when I was sitting down snuggling with Marlie, I realized that I still had my pajamas on! lol I had just jumped in to get things done and didn't pay attention to the fact that I didn't change my clothes. Oh well, that is a minor thing. The fact that I got things done in the house without having to kick myself in the butt was the big thing,
It is interesting to see that saying a few positive affirmations did so much to get me to be productive in my house. I have wanted to get so many things done in the house that I now see that with the right attitude and some planning, I can get these things done and more.
I have always wanted to get onto the Flylady plan for cleaning my house. If you don't know anything about the Flylady, you should check out her website. I think that next week, I will be ready to start the "baby steps" that she sets out on her site and begin working a regular schedule to get my house cleaned and organized.
I have seen how there is a corolation between my sloppy housekeeping and the sloppy way I have taken care of my health. It has all been tied to my attitude and the negative thoughts that I have told myself all these years.
Not a full disclosure of my past but let's just say that there are things that happened in my past that have really screwed up my thinking. Things that people did or said that really made a huge negative impact on my life. Those things have held an iron grip and now I am taking the steps to break that hold.
Today I got a glimpse of positive changes and the impact they can make if I continue to focus on the positive.
I will continue to keep pushing forward. I can do it. I will reach my goals. I am beautiful. I am strong. I am confident. I will not stop or turn back!
Much love, positive thoughts, and positive 'tude!
