Oh Poor Me....

So today is just one of those days.
I am ouchy and disagreeable
and tired
and whiny
and hungry.

I am having a bad hair day.
My skin is dry and flaky.
My clothes are worn
and don't fit the way I want them to.

Blah, Blah, Blah.

Wait
minute.

What 
am 
doing?
This is so NOT the way I envisioned
my year to go.

No, ma'am.

I am going to pick myself up,
dust myself off
and 
SMILE.

Smiling is good right?

I am going to open up my gratitude journal
and write down 5 things I'm grateful for.

I am going to
not be so hard on myself.

The past week and a half I have been working out,
watching what I eat
and journaling it all.

I promised myself I 
would have patience 
with myself 
throughout my journey
and 
NO MATTER HOW HARD
it got...
I
would
not
quit.

And I haven't.

I'm just whining.
Today.
To you.

Thanks for listening....

  1. Hi there. We all have those days, don't we? Actually, I've had two years now. In January, 2010 I had a total knee replacement; that was something. Then in December 2010 I was diagnosed with SLE Lupus. I was on steroids for almost a full year -- no fun at all. So, I know exactly how you are feeling.

    Keep in mind that the year is still young - and whatever you do for yourself - it's good. Very good!!!!

    Keep on keeping on (that's in a song, right?)

    Hugs,
    Kay

  3. Everyone needs a whining day now and then...the important thing is to not let those be more than the joyful days! Recognizing and turning yourself around takes more courage and strength than just waking up happily perfect (if that exists!). Have a great day! :)

  4. We all have those days once in a while, Leslie. It's so great to face it, acknowledge it, and do whatever you can to counteract it. Sounds like you have some great strategies to get through it to the other side! Don't forget to pray (as I'm sure you haven't!)!
