Do you ever have days when you feel like you are stuck in a bad mood?!
You really don’t want to be that person, but you just CANNOT help it! Bad moods just keep creeping up on you, and you eventually just accept it and rage.
It really sucks for those people who try to work on themselves to be better each day. We get up early, do our morning routine, do some yoga and meditation, add some freshly squeezed celery juice (supposed to be good for you) and take a cold shower, pray and workout, say our affirmations, and listen to Tony Robbins…. All that to put ourselves in a positive state of mind! And then we come to work, or go run errands or whatever. We start interacting with people, and we realize that all our morning efforts went down the drain. We just can’t stand to be around anyone, or do anything that we have to, so finally, we declare:“As soon as I get home, I am opening my favorite bottle of 🍷! I’m done for today!”
For us women, it also doesn’t help when we are totally PMSing. What happens to all that positive thinking 🤔? What happens to our: “You can be better than this!” BS? Can we even snap out of that state whenever we want to, or should we just let it overwhelm us?
Well…. This is exactly what happened to me today! I have been getting in a habit of getting up super early, having a glass of water while sitting on the 🚽, then praying (when I get off the toilet), then grabbing a glass of fresh glass of celery juice, sitting down for a 10 minute yoga stretch, or doing a 10- minute ab workout (even though I need a lot more than 10 minutes! Lol!) then saying hi to all the plants in my garden, then doing a 10-minute tapping meditation, and finally jumping in a cold shower for a few minutes. All that…. before I get ready for work! Wow! I just realized how much I actually try to do just to put myself in the right state of mind, so that I can be my best at work, and continue being my best at home with my family. Today, it didn’twork, and I was so disappointed with myself that I couldn’t hold myself together. So, I decided to sit down and write my first blog about it!
By the way, I went to the store, and they didn’t have my wine!!! What does a woman do without her wine? Express yourself! What do you like to do that’s creative and authentic to you? Is it writing in your journal about your day? Is it sharing your day with your friends, family, or a specific audience? Is it writing poetry or a song? Playing a guitar or a piano? Is it dancing? Or is it drawing or painting?
I really got into diamond art for a while at some point, and it was so mind calming and meditative! Whatever it is, find just a little bit of motivation in yourself after a bad day, and get to work, lady! Once you start and get momentum, your mind will relax, and you will be in a better mood. And if you have that glass of wine that you love, just go ahead and sip on it while you are being creative… You might discover some ideas that you never even thought of before, because wine is freaking awesome like that!
