I only have a few minutes before I leave for my WW meeting and honestly I had no idea what I was going to write this morning.
Then I saw this picture my friend Kim posted on FB:
Whew - pretty much exactly what I needed to read.
I try not to be a complainer, but lately I feel like I am beat down to the ground and constantly burning the candle at both ends. Most of that feeling is self-inflicted. I insist on having two jobs, a blog, running (almost) every day, a home cooked meal (almost) every night, and getting in as much Dan and Ina time as possible. Those things keep me plenty busy and I love them all.
Recently instead of enjoying my loves, I have let them lead me to complaining.
I don't have time to cook dinner.
What am I going to write about this morning?
Maybe I will have more energy to run tonight?
Why does Ina always want to be held?
I wish someone else would clean these dishes.
What am I going to make for dinner?
Why isn't Dan home from work yet?
Ect. Etc. Etc.
Today, and for the next week, I am going to make a strong effort to not complain. About anything.
Which makes total sense when you think about it. Why should I waste brain space on a negative thought when I could be thinking about this:
Want to take the challenge with me? Try not to complain and see how you do. As always, I would love to hear about it!
Have a happy happy happy Thursday. Only one more day until the weekend! <3
