A beautiful winter Sunday….
I’ve been so grateful to be at home the past few days. It has filled my soul, and I might even be ready to start a new year. I have never been good at keeping resolutions, although I have made lists and lists over the past several years. Mostly unrealistic, wishful thinking…I think I’ve had the same ‘weight’ goal for the past three years running lol. There is one thing that has been on my mind a lot this year though, and I discussion that I had with my Dad this weekend really made me decide that this is something that I want to be more aware of. I’ve noticed over the past year that I am very susceptible to change in mood dependent on what my surroundings are. Sad music can leave me in the depths of despair for days. Cloudy days make me very quiet. Even overhearing negative comments about someone else actually leaves me feeling more insecure about myself whether or not I had any connection to that conversation or not. Therefore!… This year I resolve to cut out the negative…ALL of it…but particularly the negative thoughts in my own head that are usually about myself, and proactively replace this with positivity. To think ahead to counteract those negative thoughts, and to dwell on the uplifting, is what I hope to make of my 2016.
