What is normal? Recently I’ve been feeling very stressed and have gotten off track with some of my goals. I was about to start this post by saying that I am getting back to normal, but then I realized something. I didn’t know what normal was and I didn’t know if normal was the best option. Instead of focusing on getting back to normal, whatever that is, I am going to focus on getting to a better place than I am in right now.
I want to focus on getting back to a routine that will put me on track for a good day. Starting out on the right foot can have a big impact. Even accomplishing little tasks can make you feel good about yourself and inspire you to be more and more productive as the day goes on. I like to start my day by making my bed, working out, watering my plants, and cleaning out my cats litter box. These tasks may be simple, but I know that if I can push myself to complete these then I can accomplish whatever else I set my mind to the rest of the day.
I know it’s been a while since I have posted and felt like my “normal” self, but I am ready to get back to a good place. I am going to therapy in a few weeks, but until then I am going to work on correcting negative thoughts as they arrive and journaling to help my mind process what upsets me.
It feels really good to be back!
