I woke up feeling sorry for myself this morning. You know, or maybe you don't, too fat, hurt too much, crappy, messy house, was gonna have a pity party but no friends to invite...the whole stupid woe is me morning. Read and remembered about someone who has reason to feel sad and down and was a bit ashamed that I was whinging when they were having a real hard time with things...Even the *been there, done that* thoughts felt bad but in fact they weren't, it was empathy as I know how they may be feeling.
Since then I have been busy, helping son with clearing out the shed, tidying inside, putting stuff away so it is off the benches and table. So it seems that the answer to stupid, crummy thoughts is to get up off your bum and do something constructive. Who knew!
So I am feeling better about things. I am still too fat but my choice. Still choose to be unfit and for some dumb reason I choose to live in a messy house with windows that need cleaning. So why whinge about it all when I could change things and all it would take is a bit more effort and some positive thinking on my part.
It would be nice to know why I choose these negatives when the positives would mean a more comfortable life, for me and those around me. And as I learned many many years ago it's all in the thinking. Change your thought, change your life. I know this, it has helped get me through some crappy times. I need to put it into practice now before I end up back where I was.
I am going to be more positive. I am going to eat healthy food. I am going to move more. I may still be fat and unfit but I will be doing what's right, what we all need.
