Today hasn’t been the best of mornings. Last night I went to bed at 11:30 after having a great time with some friends for dinner in the burbs. Around 2:30 once again I get a visitor to my side of the bed. My son had a bad dream, maybe its time to stop letting him watch medical shows with his sister. She doesn’t get freaked out by blood or medical procedures. She already says she wants to be a doctor, Thanks to Grey’s Anatomy. This morning at 2:30 I decided that I was going to take my son back to his bedroom, which I did. The only problem is that he didn’t let me leave. Who’s the parent here? At 6:30 I woke up in his bed and had to start my day. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed with less time to get going. Every morning is so hectic. I really need to stop going to bed so late and really need to start my days earlier to make them less hectic and calmer. This morning I had no patience and could feel frustration surfacing to my being. It felt like the F word just wanted to come out every other word. Lucky I was able to listen to my wife and breath. She really is a good cheerleader and she really is great at inspiring me. I want to take this moment to thank her for getting me out of a potential catastrophe with myself.
The rest of the day I will work on doing things that will improve my day and my interaction with people throughout my day. I noticed this morning I had less patience for other people and it doesn’t make me feel great. What the opposite of great, oh yeah Crummy. It so much more powerful to have control over my feelings than not to. Today I didn’t start my day with a positive mind, but I’m catching myself and making a pivot.
Today if you feel like your self-slipping because you are either tired or frustrated remember to just slow down and breath. The effects on your being are not worth it, just take the precautions and be aware of how you feel. It will really help you in the long run. No one is perfect but you have to be present, so you are aware of how you are feeling. Make the change to remove all your thoughts that are negative and move to a positive mindset.
Okay, so I didn’t get enough sleep last night, big deal. I will get some sleep tonight. Okay, my son woke up at two am, it’s okay because I was able to give him comfort and love. Instead of thinking negatively about the things that happen, I just move them right along and don’t linger. Today don’t linger on things, move on to the next thing. This process will make your day move in a direction of joy and calmness. I’m not letting my groundhog day have an effect on me. Through my writing this morning I have found my moment of change. Right now I’m moving past it. We as humans really complicate a lot of things. Today don’t complicate yourself and your feelings. I know its easier said than done but try. Maybe you can surprise yourself. I’m surprising myself every day.
