to write down things that are on my mind – you know personal things. I have been struggling recently with a wide range of feelings and emotions. A few days after Nana’s funeral I was in a sad reflective mood and thought what can I do to turn some of my negative thinking around? The whole think bad things and bad things happen kind of makes sense so why dwell on them? But at the same time it does help to pin point why I am feeling like I do and acknowledge them. I figure if I can write down things I love, enjoy or that have given me pleasure through the course of the day that would be one way of foccusing on the positive aspects of my current life. I also can down load the bad things too but brainstorm ways of how to deal with them as well.
So before my dentaist appointment this afternoon I found a journal that I felt was “me” 🙂 and also got some funky pens to go with it. I am all set! I just need to start it. Gee the theory is good at this point.
I realised todfay I am tired. It is my own fault as I stay up way too late at night when the kids are asleep, knitting or on the computer and I am running on fumes so to speak. Being tired makes me feel so flat and makes me feel even more negative about things. So tonight I am going to bed early and see if it makes a difference tomorrow. I will also start the jounal then too.
Basically it will start with how much I love my husband and my children and our families and our friends to them I say ” Love you all”.
Right, sweet dreams.
