How’re you doing?
I hope you all had a brilliant Friday.
I was so happy and proud of myself that I enjoyed today. This past week has been a tough one for me. As any week there will be ups and downs but this week everything and anything seemed to go wrong for me; worries and anxieties built up and I really thought the whole week would be like this. But luckily I woke up this morning and my mindset had shifted, not by much, just a little. But that little shift made a big difference to my day.
This morning I got out of bed around 10 minutes earlier than usual. Now this may not seem like much to you but to me that was a lot. The mere idea of getting out of bed earlier and starting the day earlier than usual wouldn’t be too appealing to me. So getting out of bed earlier was a big and good step in the right direction for me.
While walking to school I had a spring in my step and really enjoyed listening to music. I was good humoured with the people I met this morning and I made a conscious effort to sit up straight and pay attention in my first few classes. Even a lunch I didn’t moan too much while standing in a very long queue and I felt appreciative of my delicious hot food.
So what changed? What inspired this good mood?
That is what i have been trying to figure out this evening. I suppose for my own good I shouldn’t dwell on it too much I should just be happy that I had a good day. But to be honest I really want to know what helped today be just that extra bit better and stand out from the crowd. I want to learn from all the positives that I had today and continue to improve on them and allow them to continue and most of all enjoy them.
Looking back on the day all I can put it down to is my positive mindset that I woke up having. I knew I wasn’t going to be 100% but I accepted that. I can’t explain it properly but all I can say is that I somehow believed in myself and believed that the day was going to be good and that no matter what happened I knew I was going to be okay.
This is something that I find extremely hard to do so I was pretty pleased with myself. Yes the anxiety and worry were still there but I managed to keep them under control. I don’t know how long this positivity will last but I’m just going to appreciate it while it’s here.
As they say “onwards and upwards!”
