Buck Up Buttercup
Wednesday, November 20, 2013
Well this morning my oatmeal exploded in the microwave, my stress meter went up at work, because tight deadlines just got tighter, and for some reason today I let some negative thoughts creep into my mind about where I am in my fitness journey, and how slow the rate of my progress as been lately. Then I saw this on my Instagram and I bucked up real quick.
I filled my brain with positive thoughts and reminded myself how far I've come. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and chalking today up as, "one of those days." Today is a day of your life that you're never going to get back, so even though it may not be the greatest day in your history make the most of it.
The other day I was teasing my boyfriend for being grumpy, and he told me he didn't know how someone can be so happy all the time. My response to him was that I choose to be happy. I choose to not waste time and energy dwelling on the negative. I choose to make matters better. I choose to live a happy life. Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to follow through with that choice, because not everything is going to be daisies and rainbows, but I make the most of what I get and the effort always pays off.
