Where does that winning feeling go that you wake up with every morning?
Thursday, February 27, 2020
Every morning I wake up feeling good. Full of resolve. Clean slate, new day, I got this.
What will this day bring? Opportunities.
As the day progresses, the good feeling may wane. When we get busy, the euphoric tidal wave of motivation may ebb. Sometimes there's mistakes on the page. Sometimes it's just a niggling feeling. But I'll tell you a secret. You can't rely on your feelings because they will lie to you. There are many things that can bring on negative feelings. Is it based on reality?
If I'm feeling uneasy because I ate something unplanned, I fill out the tracker and realize it's really been a good day after all. But even if it happens to be over on calories, it's only one day, one moment. Get right back into a healthy mindset. Learn from failures and let them go.
Re-commit. This is a perfect moment to start over.
Between goals is a life to be lived and ENJOYED. Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself like you would treat your child. Talk to yourself like you would talk to a friend. Do whatever moves you to a good place of strength and love.
This is YOUR journey. You have a lot of choices each day. Having a plan can make those daily choices easier. There may be times you let yourself down. Things may happen that you have no control over. The one thing you can control is your attitude and reactions.
It will be enough.
We've got this. And we've got each other.
