Change is hard, doing nothing is harder

Change is hard, there is nothing harder than doing something different after you have done something a certain way forever! We hem and haw about making a change, we go to therapists, doctors, religious leaders, we read self help books, we look up articles online until our eyes are bleary and it all comes down to this, about any issue or problem you are dealing with, change is needed. But as a whole, we as humans are adverse to change, we like our routines, even if they don’t actually work for us. Our routines are comfortable and comfort is exactly where we like to be in life.

If at first you don’t succeed

Do you ever feel like this life is in need of some better directions, like where is that darn instruction manual?! I have been feeling like that a lot lately, not feeling my best and that makes everything so much harder, doesn’t it? I have found that when I eat well and exercise I feel better, but this past year, well, I have learned that like all routines, they have to be shaken up every now and again.

 

Spring has Sprung

This may be my favorite time of year, cool in the morning, warm enough to lay on my deck in the evening and play a few rounds of UNO with my children (they even let me win from time to time). The pollen is coating everything, but I am not sweating yet, so YAY! I am not a fan of freezing and I am not a fan of sweating in non workout clothes, like what is the point of getting dressed and putting on makeup?! There is something about the sun starting to warm everything up that makes me feel a hundred times better than a few weeks ago when I was still shivering on my morning runs.

Seeing the good in the world

Last week a man filled with hate, went into 2 mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and opened fire, he killed 51 people and injured dozens others, their crime was simply being of a religion he did not agree with or understand and of a race he did see as worthy of life. The hate no longer surprises me, I wish it did, I wish it shocked me and made me slump down in tears, but the truth is if I went down that road, I would never get up.

 

Today is a good day to have a good day

Upon waking up, the instant your brain starts firing, decide in that moment, today is my day, it is a good day and I have decided no matter what happens it will still be a good day. Having a good day is a choice. If you are one of those rare people who wake up happy and beaming, good for you! I am officially jealous and/or disgusted, maybe both, because I have to make an effort every Single day to try and wake up and set a positive outlook goal for the day. I don't bound out of bed, I sit and convince myself to get a grip and get my workout clothes on and get a move on.
