I write this post this morning in a very tired state. I am all out of sorts.
Having recently returned from a fantastic family holiday, i am exhausted! Travel alone is tiring but as some of you will be aware travelling abroad with young children throws other challenges at us as well and the all too real crash back to reality hasn't helped.
The kids are off school for the summer so there is not much r & r time for me.
My husband works away at times making me an #occasionalsinglemum (or so it feels).
I had planned to wake early today and resume back to my routine journal practice, building on my mindset and working on my dreams...
Then I had the worst nights kip ever!
So when my alarm went off I shuddered and hit snooze;
Again and again,
until I eventually arose from my slumber an hour and a half later; with a child in my bed...who is still there now! Cheers 👍🏼
I was cross, my day was already deviating from my plan
I'm more tired than I was when I went to bed!!
SO I started asking myself the following questions, acknowledging I had a CHOICE. Acknowledging I could CHOOSE how the day was going to pan out from here.
- How do you deal with this?
- How do you move on?
- How do you let this shape your day?
- How do you let this affect your mood?...
There are TWO options
CHOICE 1) You CHOOSE
To kick yourself,
Be hard on yourself for not sticking to your plan,
Mope around all day feeling annoyed
Feel sorry for yourself...woe betides me!!
CHOICE 2) You CHOOSE
Let yourself accept this happened
Understand why it happened - your knackered!
Allow yourself to accept it's ok to be tired
Allow yourself to be ok with the situation
Pick yourself up
Dust yourself off
And start as mean to go on...
even if it is an hour an half later!
So my message this morning is this...
YOU ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE - CHOOSE WISELY
I choose happy. What about you?
