Everything is freaking me out today

Sunday, January 20, 2019

Yesterday I woke up in kind of a negative mode and started worrying - about money, about all my household appliances turning on me at once, about my writing, about my not writing, about my wavering commitment to diet and fitness - you name it, I chewed my nails over it.

What a waste of a Saturday morning! Later in the afternoon I had a glass of wine and wrote a pitch for my book even though it's not finished and the turn around in my attitude was amazing. It's not that what I wrote was especially good but I felt I had to do something, anything. So I gave myself permission to write bad and it got me moving again.

So I'm thinking that allowing myself to be bad a yoga, or cross-fit or whatever is still better than just thinking about it. Same with trying new foods or juicing something revolting like kale. Failure IS an option.

Next time I'm down and feel like I'm making no progress, it's out the door for a walk or hit the computer to find a new recipe or write a page of dialog, or try an exercise video that I probably won't be able to keep up with but what the heck. Anything active that moves me toward my goals even if I suck at it.

Keep Sparking my friends!

    Sometimes I worry about things that are out of my control too. I wish that I didn't! I hope that you have a great day today!

    Great...it helps when you can take some negativity, and turn it into positivity, even if you don't think it's much. But it is...you did great, & were able to push yourself out of those negative feelings.

    If only worrying about something counted as doing it. Taxes would be so much easier!
