I've been doing well, trying to stay mindful and trying to get a bit more organized.
I think when I remember to stop over-thinking and be in the moment I can help squelch anxiety. As an example, this evening I washed dishes and cleaned the counter tops in the kitchen. Normally, while I do this I am judgmental. "There shouldn't be any dishes in the sink. I need to do X differently, I need to make a plan, X needs to be better about..." and on it goes. I hadn't realized that this way of thinking wasn't helpful, because in-between berating myself I would be coming up with some type of solution or plan for "next time." While making an organization pinterest board is great....it doesn't mean that I wasn't judging myself harshly for at least a half an hour. So, tonight, there was no judgement. I put on headphones and sang along to the music.
Whenever I found myself going to that judgmental place, I would stop myself and take a look around. Appreciate all that I have and think about what I was doing at that moment. I'm sure many of you ruin your Sunday afternoons or evenings because you are already upset about the work week....I was about to go into that pity party and decided instead to write. I already feel a weight lifted.
I have always believed that happiness is a choice, now I just have to work out how I go about making those choices.
In other news, I bought myself this skin care kit because I am old. Or I was informed that people with dry skin should use "anti-aging" products. Or both.
I hope you have a great week. :)
