This Monday sure started with a bang!
Well, maybe not quite as dramatic as that… But it was definitely a different kind of Monday to the ones I normally have.
I have been busy from 10 am until after 6 pm today, which is quite something! Then, of course, I still had to take Miss Daisy for a walk. I had a glass of wine outside, and now I am making myself some supper. Chill time!
As much as I enjoy a day of doing nothing, I love having a day like today. Busy enough, but not so that I feel run off my feet.
I wasn’t looking forward to this week, but it started off on a positive note, so I am hoping it will continue in that vein. If it does, I’ll be a happy camper. 🙂
I recently talked to somebody about the importance of being able to control your thoughts when you are feeling negative or alone. It is not an easy thing to do. I still battle with it, but I haven’t had a lot of practice yet. I used to mope. Feel sorry for myself. I only recently started believing that only I could make myself feel better. I do now believe that the power of positive thinking is priceless. I think that once you feel your thoughts going into a dark place, you have to try your best to rein them in, and coax it in a positive direction.
It needs discipline and perseverance. But once you consistently keep at it, I think it becomes easier, and eventually it happens automatically.
I sometimes have to pull myself up by my bootstrings, but it works. The times that it doesn’t work, I get active. Or I get into my car and drive somewhere, preferably where there are people.
Today, fortunately, I didn’t need that. It was a positive day, even if it was a Monday!!
I know some of you are done with Monday, some of you are right in the middle or your day. Mine is ending now, but I thought I’ll gift you this ‘ancient’ little song, to ease your Monday into a pleasant one.
You’re welcome! 🙂
