You know that quote about how some things go wrong so better things can happen? I'm feeling a lot of that in my life right now. Things just seem to be clicking. Probably the biggest thing is that I'm making a conscious effort to not be so mean to myself. My piano teacher gave me an assignment to be okay with only doing things 85% and I've been following her advice. (Often I do things only 85%, but I beat myself up for not doing 100%) This sounds so obvious, but life is so much saner when you are nice to yourself.
This week especially has super busy and the kind of typical week where I would be mad at myself for not somehow "fitting-in-all-the-things" perfectly. But I'm not, and that's okay. I may not get a workout in until Thursday, and that's okay. I've been eating too much fast food because of the crazy schedule and not being at home, but that's okay too because I'm trying to make the healthiest choice possible without feeling deprived and eating well when I am home. I am taking time out for me and not feeling guilty. I'm reading good books that are helping me get into a better mindset.
