Day 3 of 40 Feeling blue

Friday, February 26, 2010

I did not take the time to write last night. I was feeling kind of blue. I was hoping that the feeling would pass when I slept but, I am still feeling it. I hope today goes better.

I am trying to remember the quote I have choosen for this journey:
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." --- Aristotle

I can become excellent. I am getting part of my goals done. Some seem near impossible right now. I am building towards them. Some things are just taking longer than I would have liked to get started. It is already Friday and some how I have not lifted weights at all. I did a few strenght training exercises with a friend but, I did not get a full workout in. I really want to get that in today.

Serveral years ago I took the Boy Scouts training called Woodbadge. I learned a great deal about goal setting. I will write this evening about what I value and what my vision is. Right now I am reluctant considering my mood but, I might be able to do it after my walk and when the sun comes up. I want to dream and see if I can believe it.

    When I don't feel like it I have to remember why I am doing it to reach this certain goal. I start to feel better once I have started that exercise. Most of the time I just put on my workout clothes so I have no excuse. Good Luck.

    Why are you out of sorts? Are you making your goals so grand that you feel you will fail? Are you not feeling well for one reason or another? What is keeping you from doing this?

    Never did Woodbadge but attended the graduation for someone else. Had no desire to do it myself. DId mostly cub scout training. I do agree about management skills and goal setting as a part of the program.

    Choose one thing you will do no matter what. The ten minute workout really works. Give it a try. Just do something for ten minutes and then if you quit, at least you did something and often you will find yourself doing a little more.

    Goal setting is key but I am not always in the mood. Positive affirmations get me going at times times like the one you described. I wish you success with your goal planning. Hope you are feeling inspired again real soon. emoticon

    You can dream and realize your dream... allow yourself to feel blue but know that it will pass and you will be closer to your excellence by doing what you need to do while it is here.
    You are wonderful, don't forget that! And you deserve to dream and to get to your dreams!
