Keep Moving Forward
And I dropped my son off at school and was just feeling cranky. Since I have had a cold the last week and a half I have not exercised. I know what not exercising does to my mental state. So although I was still not feeling 100% I grabbed my iPod (and truth be told the fact that I would be able to listen to Mumford & Sons new album was really my entire motivation cause I did not feel like doing ANYTHING) and just went for a walk. That usually makes me feel better so I just did it.
And when I got home my iPod would not shut off. Try as I may nothing worked. (and did I mention my computer kept freezing??) Enter the point where you start letting things really get to you. So I took some deep breaths and moved as far away from that mood as I could. Ignored it if you would.
I got an email from a very dear friend of mine who has been going through a tough time lately and has CONTINUED to get back on the horse. I am so proud of her and it just reinforced the way I had been feeling, that you keep on truckin' on (yes of course that's a Grateful Dead reference), even when you're not really feeling it. So I KEPT on trying to reboot my iPod and you know what, it finally turned off. Whooo hoo. And I felt better. Small examples I know, hard to do sometimes when the going gets tough, but it can be done. It is possible to keep moving away from a downward spiral. Have a wonderful day everyone!
