This morning I woke up in a funky mood, I was still tired after a shit nights sleep and my hips were still sore.
I spent until nearly 5pm sitting about feeling shit and just making myself feel a hundred times worse.
So I got off my ass, put the spongebob movie on in the background and played bubbles and fetch with my dogs and had cuddles with them and the cats.
I started feeling less grumpy and miserable.
My sister in law and two of my nephews popped in briefly, so that was nice 🙂
Then I decided to sort through all the shit I want to sell, as I’m doing a carboot soon.
I bagged up all the Lego sets I’m selling and then I cleaned the shelves and cleaned all my big Lego sets that I’m keeping.
I moved my crystals and stones into the bedroom where they have a whole shelf and arranged them all. Which felt really good, as the other shelf they were on was really cluttered and disorganised.
I took down the 2 canvases I’m selling, which then led me on to taking down all my posters but my signed tank girl poster.
My place looks pretty naked now and I still need to rearrange a few bits so they place looks right. But it feels good to have less clutter and the place looks less like a little boy lives there.
At the moment I’m just sat outside with the dogs, we’ve played with more bubbles, now they’re both just running about chasing each other.
I feel a hundred percent better then I did this morning, I feel more myself. I feel more awake.
Sitting around feeling miserable is fine for a bit, but the length of the suffering is dependent on whether or not you want the suffering to end or to just continue.
Cuz yeah sitting around feeling miserable and feeling sorry for myself is easy, it requires nothing.
But I chose to stop feeling miserable, because I felt like I was being a silly kid having a tantrum over literally nothing.
So I decided to change the course of my day by changing the negative thoughts into positive actions and guess what!? Negative thoughts have gone away and I feel much better.
I’m not saying this will work for me every time because sometimes yeah I’m entitled to feel miserable and it’s good to sit with those emotions and to process them and work through them.
But this is not how I wanted my week to start off.
Positive actions have positive reactions and a simple action can change your whole day.
“Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional” today I totally understand what that quote means!
Life is only good if you want it to be good. But a good life doesn’t just land in your lap, you have to start with positive actions to get the life that you want.
After all, all most of us want is to be happy. That’s definitely at the top of my list. I just want happiness and I’m working at it 🙂
