Day 5 of 'Tude

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Okay today is March 5th so I am officially 5 days into my challenge to change my attitude and turn negative thoughts into positive ones.

Today was a take things slow and easy day. I didn't just sit around. I got some things accomplished but I didn't push too much to get things done. I just was trying to take things easy.

I spent some time today processing some of the things that have happened in the last few days. I am happy with the changes that I am seeing so far. I don't want them to be temporary so I took today to work on the affirmations that I have been using and to think about how they have been affecting my thinking for the past few days.

What I am seeing is that I am starting to feel better. I was so run down but now I am beginning to feel better about myself and my life. I have also noticed that stoping the negative thoughts isn't a quick response yet. I seem to get hit by them and the marinade a bit and then I snap out of the stupor and change them to positive.

I know that the more I work on this, the quicker I will react and change those negative thoughts & attitudes to positive ones. It is just going to take time and being consistent.

Tonight I will be spending time reading my book. I haven't read much lately but tonight, I will get back to it.

I am cutting this short tonight as I have some reading to do.

Much love!

    I'm glad you are feeling better about yourself! I'm glad you're going to be reading tonight, too. What a good idea. I just started a new book, and I think I will curl up with it after dinner. I've been rediscovering music. I hear snippets of songs on tv and search for them either on youtube or itunes until I find it. One of my new favorites is All My Days by Alexi Murdoch. It's acoustic guitar and has a beautiful message. Keep moving forward!

    Often the only thing you can change about a situation is your attitude to it.


If you cant' change a situation, change your attitude to it.

You're changing your attitude, which is fantastic. It does take practice, so your gratitude diary is vital.

Today I'm glad that I've got the support of SparkPeople. Today I'm glad that I went out for a run last night. Today I'm glad that I've got a class booked for tonight.

    Remember on the Quitting team where we were supposed to look at ourselves in the mirror for a full minute and say good things about ourselves? I think I am going to go back to doing that. It was working pretty well when I did it. Notice how we miss once then later we let a couple days go by without doing it, and then we forget it completely for months at a time? Aren't we peculiar?
Love you, Mom

    I know exactly what you mean, it's something we have been doing so long, that we accept it as normal. It is nothing out of the ordinary. It is going to take a while for the alarm to go off each time you have a negative thought so you can turn it around. But you are doing this day by day, piece by piece and I know you are doing great things! emoticon emoticon
