Hi there. I’ve been exploring a bit of D.C. lately as this marks a year in. There’s always so much to do and a majority of these things are FREE. That word plays an important factor on what events I choose to entertain.:) I’ve been thinking lately about how much of our energy is put towards the wrong things and how this can be so draining in our overall mental health. We give so much power to external factors throughout our day that it consumes us to the point where self-care gets thrown out the window. Maybe someone didn’t say the right thing to you today, so you may critique how they said what they said to you, what they could have meant by it, etc, or maybe someone didn’t respond to you as quickly as you would like or every little thing at work, truly annoys the mess out of you. For all those reasons and any specific ones you may have, all this truly does, is take you away from focusing on the great person that you are. Self-doubt can be at an all time high during times like this and being aware of this, is key to be able to restructure your thinking, take that step back and analyze you, take stock of what things you need right now to fuel all that greatness that you are disregarding. Overall, its all about balance and getting you to a place, where you are in tune with your thinking and how this can influence how you feel and interpret the outside world. So, in starting the week off like you should, focus on overall balance, focus on your thinking, jot things down and revisit them to get some clarity and limit re-occurring thoughts. Pick a goal for the week and see how much importance your goal can become when you take that time to nurture it, and focus on what things can be done to change old behaviors into newer healthier ones. Let me start,
My goal this week: Focus on me and everything I have going on, what someone else does has nothing to do with me. I will measure this by keeping a log, just to see how often I entertain this and allow it to take me away from specific things I need to focus on.
Happy Monday it will be. Talk to you soon.
