I was in a funk for half a year ate anything to drown my sorrows, (done this before )y. when you DO realize that it is only a pity party then and only then can you change your behavior. I felt sorry for myself because my mother is gravely ill.. My mother wouldn't want this for me
Saying things like I'll start on Monday, I'll start Next week is just another word for procrastination. When we DECIDE to do something...nothing stops us! Not even us.!! Decide, Dedicate, Determination! You can't be in Egypt when you are in D-Nile ;)
I have found that the HARDEST thing to do is to motivate myself when I am stressed or disgusted with life even depressed with situations. There are always good things that come out of it even if you can't see at the time. because you are stuck in that moment. This is the time to pull all your resources together, chin up and (pretend) yes pretend everything is all right and you'll be surprised how quickly you come out of your funk and not sabotage your health!!!
Ying and Yang , good and bad, yes and no, negative and positive. To feel positive about yourself you have the power and ability to rid your self of negativity, bad situations, and saying yes to yourself instead of others. Take BACK your control and make a choice on who you want to have relations with ..be it a friend, co-worker or spouse. If they are holding you down remember you can't change them only yourself. Take baby steps to get back on track with YOU!
A good start to stay positive is to reflect on the times that you were unstoppable in some point of your life. Retrieve that information and rebuild. Keeping in mind that your mind body and spirit have to have goals to make everything unite.
