Yesterday was a rough day. Heck, I’m realizing that I’m having quite a few of those lately.
I’m trying not to complain, because I hate complainers, but I’m really struggling through my emotions lately. I just want to be happy again. I want to ignore how I feel and be able to fall asleep again. I hate feeling so out of control, but it’s the reality of the situation right now.
The only things I can control are how I move my body and what I put in my mouth. Every other part of my day and my life are subject to unexpected stuff, so this is where I have to put my focus and do the right thing.
Today I will do my yoga practice.
Today I will (I already did) read something that makes me better/smarter.
Today I will eat healthy foods.
Today I will drink plenty of water.
Today I will smile at strangers and be polite to everyone I meet.
Today I will strive to help others. At work, in public, even at home if I can.
Today I will try to find that joy I’ve been searching for, even when it’s not obvious… it’s there.
Today I will meditate before I go to sleep. I will do this at a reasonable hour. I will give myself the best chance at getting a good night’s rest.
These are all things I can control. I will dwell on those and not on what I can’t control. It’s not a comprehensive list, but you get the idea. First things first…. today I will love myself enough to exercise.
I hope you love yourself enough today as well.
