I've had a rough start today. You know those days when it seems like the world is fighting you, and you're like, UM HELLO, STOP FIGHTING ME, WORLD!! Especially since i *finally* woke up and got my bum into the gym for some cardio. (It's been weeks... ok maybe months...) What a great start to my Tuesday, i foolishly thought. Since then it's been destructive pets, spills, breaks, lame Austin drivers, Central Market NOT having sushi ready this morning (got a salmon salad instead - boo), and another day at work filled with... oh, that's right, NOTHING. Also? I'm exhausted and want nothing more than to crawl back into bed. I thought exercise was supposed to give you energy?
Luckily one of the first blogs i read once i got to work was Yogadiva's Divine Life, and her post entitled "Beyond Happy." I wish i were a more positive person because i know i'd be happier. Unfortunately i tend to sway towards the negative/bitchy side, and that's something i'd really like to change. My intentional/goal for the week (written in my Planner Pad in hot pink!) was to remember that i have power over my thoughts and can work to change them. I can't control whether someone cuts me off, or if the cleaning company i hired did a completely half-assed job, but i can control how i react to such situations. So yes, it's a neverending process, but i'm working on it. Thanks for reminding me, Yogadiva! I hope to be as positive and happy as you one day. :)
And in the spirit of this post, here are 5 things for which i'm grateful right now:
1. My health
2. My awesome sister whom i'm fortunate enough to be visiting this Memorial Day Weekend
3. My awesome blogging/twitter friends!!
4. Iced blueberry green tea (elixir of the GODDESSES, i've decided)
Have a GREAT Tuesday, y'all!
