The Thought Process Has to Change

Friday, January 07, 2011

I got home from a crappy day full of irritating meetings and that's exactly what I put on my status.

Then I read Vandal's blog with the title, "The Thought Process Has to Change", and I knew the same was true for me -- and so I changed my status!

One of my personal failings is that when things tick me off I tend to dwell on them far longer then is necessary or healthy.

So here I am, it's Friday, the week is done, and I've arrested my negative, obsessive thinking. I've eaten well, did 30 minutes on the treadmill to fulfill my 100 day challenge, and tomorrow IS another day!

    Hey - glad I could help. You certainly gave me a great boost recently so what goes around comes around I guess.

    Make it a great weekend for you and TC!!

    No excuses - calories don't have a clue as to what the day or date is.

    Isn't it wonderful to be done with that crap. The past is gone. The saying goes "Attitude is everything." It is nice that we CAN choose how we feel, deal with the present and look to the future.

    Now that you have changed your frame of mind and did all those good things you are off to a great start to the weekend. Spark and SF really DO make a positive difference. Without Vandal's blog you may have stayed down there buried in that negativity leftover from the work world. Enjoy your Saturday.

    Good for you!! I read a quote once that says... "Attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching?" That is something that really sticks with me.

    Hello Everyone,
    I am new to this group. Your blog caught my eye tonight because of what happened at work today. My boss has caused me so much stress over the last 5 years. I have tried to loose weight and some days do really well. Then today she pushed me so hard that I went into my office and just jammed M&M's down my throat. I am so ashamed and feel sick but I couldnt take it any longer. I dont know if anyone will read this, but I had to tell someone. Some days I am so angry, I turn these days into blind anger towards everyone then I turn on myself.

    Isn't it great when you catch yourself in the act of a negative behavior and then you are able to change it? I find this happens more and more, which leads to small successes. Soon they will add up to one big success!

    Yes, our attitude can make a huge difference as you have mentioned. A negative attitude can lead to one after another of careless thoughts that bring us down. Good for you you got control of it. emoticon
