Blog Challenge

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Alright, I'll play. I like to blog but really don't do it as much as I could, would, or should. And today I am REALLY not in the mood to do it after having a super sucky day yesterday, with today not looking a whole lot brighter (it's a kid thing- when my kids are struggling then I struggle). This blogging challenge is possibly a good thing, though. I have worked myself out of many a funk by putting my thoughts on paper so I will do it because, who knows, maybe it will help my mood and it surely won't hurt it.

Today is a day that can easily send me trolling the hallways looking for snacks. I could easily eat my feelings today, all day, but this challenge is going to give me the opportunity to think it out first, before I roam the hallways with the theme of Jaws running through my brain..... picture it, it's not pretty.... Instead, I am going to try and enjoy my amazing cup of coffee, take a deep breath, and be grateful that I have the problems that I have, and mentally prepare for my day. I will be grateful that I am blessed with healthy kids, and that at the end of the day today I can close it off watching my struggling but awesome kid play baseball, putting his worries on the back burner and absorbing himself in an activity that will pick him up and let him feel better. While I freeze my arse off emoticon It could be so much worse.

    Self talk is necessary to keep balance in your life, I feel. My kids don't understand why I don't listen to music while out walking.....they don't realize I am solving world and family problems in the solitude and quiet. Plus, walking (even for 15 minutes) will clear my head, calm me down, distract me from the dreaded snack temptations. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
