A powerful lesson

Image
I wasn't in such a great mood all week. I knew it. I felt it. I didn't like it. But I couldn't seem to shake it completely and I didn't quite know why. Then I realized it today. I had a seminar I had to attend today and I was dreading it all week. I was bent out of shape because I had to give up my Saturday to attend this seminar. All week I was resentful and didn't want to do it. So it ruined my entire week and it wasn't that bad. I actually enjoyed it. The point is, I spent all week dreading it and it ruined my whole week. Why did I let that have that much control over me? I have been learning slowly that my attitude is the most important thing I have. My attitude can make the worst things not only acceptable but fun. I have got to watch that. I don't want to fall back into old habits. I want to be happy with everything; my job, my house, my life. I just needed to note this to remember later that attitude is everything. Fake it until you make it :)

Seriously lazy weekend

Sometimes you just need those. I did go to Crossfit Friday and Saturday, but not much else happened. And I'm okay with that. I feel rested and relaxed and that was what I wanted for this weekend. I realized that I do push myself kind of hard most of the time. When we first got to Arizona and there was just nothing to do, I relaxed. Really relaxed. I had nothing to really do and it was nice. I felt true relaxation for the first time in a long, long time. I napped. I swam. I read. I watched Netflix. It was amazing. I was thinking back on that and I realized that I don't relax very often. I'm always working on something or thinking about something or planning something. So I decided that taking time to really and truly relax was okay. So I did that. I didn't plan on doing it the entire weekend, but hey, stuff happens. We did take the car to the dealer on Friday for license plates, and we drove up to South Moutain yesterday, so we did get out a little bit. But today? Nothi…
