I need a break!

Monday, February 03, 2014

I know that life is not going to be easy. I know there is going to be hardship and not everything will go that way that I want. It seems as if nothing is going right for me lately. emoticon I need to take a break from negative thinking and put a positive spin on it.

1). I can't find a full time job to save the life of me. I have found a part time job working at the local mental health center as a crisis phone clinician so something is better than nothing.
- Positive- I have a job and now I have my foot in the door if something comes my way.

2) I had problems paying the bills. There never seems to be enough money to take care of everything. emoticon
- Positive- I was able to work with my bills and get some better rates. I am also in the process of getting the mortgage modified so this might be able to help. emoticon My car loan was modified and this is a great help. emoticon

3) My dog recently died and I am taking it harder than I thought. emoticon
- Positive- I was able to have him in my life for 5 happy years.

4) I have had some difficulty finding motivation to exercise. emoticon
- Positive- I need to get my tushie in gear if I want to continue to maintain my weight loss. emoticon

Some days are better than others when it comes to trying to be positive. Today is not one of them and I seem to be having a pity party for little ol' me. I think I am going to jump on the Nordic track and see if that helps me feel any better.

Thanks for reading my blog.

    So sorry things have been exceptionally rough for you lately. I like the way you addressed your situation, by pointing out the good on each of the negatives. about 18 years ago when I was pretty down due to my dad's serious illness, an acquaintance suggested that every night before bed I write in a journal a minimum of 5 things that I am grateful for that day. I took her advice and have done so every night for the past 18 years. Some days finding things to write about is easier than others. However it helps me focus all day long on things I will write in the journal at the end of the day. So I go through the day looking for positives. You already have a start here in your blog. You might want to keep it going in a little journal. In any case, you will continue to be in my prayers. Please know that I am here for you.

    Is working that phone job surrounding you with extra negative things? There are few full time jobs, and many have two or three part time jobs these days. So it is not you, just the way businesses are run, trying to not pay benefits. Keep paying attention to what is going right, and remember longer days and spring is coming.

    I hope things start to look up for you, my friend. You have overcome some really tough stuff and staying resilient is hard!

    I don't think a short-lived pity party is a terrible thing! Did the Nordic Trac help?

    You know it's cool you're recognizing your thought patterns and you recognize all the positive changes you've made - the job, the finances... Sometimes sucky things happen, and they do bring us down. No one is HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY all the time, and that's normal. Things are looking up for you. The pity party won't last forever!

    I'm glad you're trying to see the positive in all the negative things that are going on. You'll get there and you'll be a stronger and happier person when you do because you didn't let the bad bring you down!
