Even I have bad days
You ever just have one of those days? Nothing seems to go right, you feel like you suck at everything you do. You feel like even the things you know you're good at just aren't good enough. Just feeling like a failure period. I am upbeat and positive 99% of the time, but yesterday was a 1% kind of day. Had some things that happened all in a row that got me down. So why am I telling you this and why do you care? Because I'm throwing a pity party and you're all invited. So what did I do to snap out of my little funk? I did three things. Pooped my pants, cried, and took a nap. Then I did 3 more things. I went running. For those of you that know me, you probably know I hate running. I do hate running and since I did a heavy leg workout yesterday it was not the smartest thing to do, but it is a great way to clear your head and get refocused. It was an awesome day, so I did my running outside and then I stayed outside in the sun. I had some paperwork I needed to do, so I just sat there in the sun basking like a lizard with a calculator. Since the sun hasn't been out for awhile I encourage you to get in it when you can. Even if it's cold it can still help tremendously. The third thing I did was ask myself "Is this really that bad?" And of course once you really get down to it, you're fine. It is all about the perspective you choose. You want to know how much of a nerd I am? It made me think of a nutrition study done at Penn State. One group was told to restrict certain foods and a certain amount of calories, while the other group was told to simply eat more fruits and vegetables.The fruits and vegetables group was more successful across the board. Do you think about what you can have in life or are you too caught up in the things you can't have? Next time you're down on yourself just realize that it isn't your fault that you there, but it is your job to get out.
