I can be bothered
Monday, June 24, 2013
Well, that is the theme for today. I was up early, got all the ironing done and put away before breakfast. It was a healthy breakfast and esky packed for the day's events. We put out catalogs from 8.30 am til 3.30pm. Today, I was really struggling with my attitude, I felt tired and I just didn't have the energy to do what I was supposed to be doing. It wasn't til I came home, had a rest and put the roast on that I realized the whole attitude of the day was ' I can't be bothered', and that was my headspace, not very pleasant indeed to be around or to be inside. So, I realized what I was saying to myself that made my day so miserable and changed it to I can be bothered. I can be bothered to fill out my daily nutrition, I can be bothered to blog this attitude, I can be bothered to drink my required amount of water for the day. I can be bothered to do my daily fitness. I can be bothered to be honest in my nutrition about what exactly I did consume, those extra lollies to comfort my pessimistic attitude, that chocolate to get me out of a slump. Did that food work? DER ahh No, did changing my attitude do the trick? Well, that is a certainty, plus it is the week I am premonstral (a little monster!), so I need to take that into account but there is no excuse for a bad attitude. It is so important what we tell ourselves in our heads. If we tell ourselves we can, we can. If we tell ourselves we can't we are also right. Thank God for the gift of learning!
