The Reset Button
Sunday, March 10, 2013
Sunday mornings are my proverbial reset. My favorite radio station plays stripped down, unplugged music, my spark page begins a new for the week, and I take it real slow with a big, steamy cup of Café Bustelo. Granted I was relaxed enough when I woke up this morning that it took me an hour to realize it's daylight savings. So if you didn't know, you best be adding an hour to your clocks today.
Sparkpeople makes things more manageable for me because I get to reset every week. No matter what I did, over did, or under did last week, I get to begin again. I get to learn from my mistakes and I get to continue working towards my goal without any reminders or "I told you so"s from last week or last month. When all my trackers return to their rightful marks on the left hand side of my page it feels like a brand new start every week. It allows me perspective outside of my hypochondriac, anxiety ridden, often crazy person, head. My achievements are on display alongside my goals for the week.
Sunday mornings always feel good for that reason. No matter what lays behind me, Sunday gently nudges me in a forward direction with the aid of acoustic music and coffee. Some people attend church or a family brunch, but this feels like my own kind of religion - one that focuses on self-love, health, and most importantly, happiness.
Sunday is day one all over again.
