Blob or Blog...?
Monday, October 22, 2012
Because I've wasted the entire morning with less than stellar activities, I feel like a Blob. Not only do I feel like a blob, I'm acting like a blob. The only thing I've done that could even remotely qualify for 'active' living is to walk aimlessly around the house, following the vacuum cleaner. I've exhausted every excuse I can think of to explain my 'blobby' behavior:
1. I don't feel well - but that isn't true, I really feel just fine! For that I should be thankful.
2. It's snowing outside - well that is true, but it's not snowing inside! For that I should be thankful.
3. I'm sad today - but really, I'm no sadder today that I usually am on a Monday morning. For that I should be thankful.
4. It's snowing outside - oops, have already tried to use that excuse. It didn't work the first time, probably won't work now.
So here's a BLOG to me, the BLOB: Buck up, girl. You feel well, in fact, you feel great! It IS snowing outside and that's great because we really need the moisture! You are only as sad as you let yourself be - just remember that it is Monday and 'this, too, will pass.' And here's the bonus - You've already vacuumed the whole house!!! That's great.
How about a nice, brisk walk in the first snowfall of the year? It might be just what you need to take control of what you now see as a bleak situation!
O.k. - maybe a short walk - what could it hurt?
*** Skip ahead a few years (yes - years!) and I'm apparently back to being a BLOB. :-(. How could I let that happen? Again? Something's not right here! Time to start again with the 'short walk' concept and see what happens!
