Becoming the best version of yourself

A Work In Progress?

on September 19, 2021

As I continue on this journey of my “new and next chapter”, I really do keep trying to find ways to become more positive every day. And I thought daily workouts were exhausting?

This being “positive” thing is alot of work. Seriously.

The above quote from Mahatma Gandhi sounds like it should be easy to accomplish. But as the title says, I am a work in progress, a WIP!

So here’s my new “thing” to try. As I focus on what it takes to become a more positive person, and find my harmony in life, I’m going to try only certain times of the day to allow those “this sh*t is driving me crazy” thoughts to enter my head. I have picked the times I’m taking my dogs on their walks.

I can vent to the pups, they are very understanding, they are very empathetic and they think I hung the moon. In other words, I can do very little wrong in their eyes – except maybe NOT take them on dog walks.

I will allow myself to have those “what’s your problem universe? I’m NOT a bad person and I do NOT deserve this” thoughts only when I’m outside enjoying beautiful fall weather (here in the mountains) and strolls with 150 lbs of dogs. I’ll get it out of my system, I’ll scowl a few times, I’ll mentally skewer the contractors who do not show up when promised, I’ll stomp through the falling leaves, maybe even kick a few pine cones that the squirrels have decimated. I think I might be on to something.

Or, I could just take a trip to the Virgin Islands? Hmmmmmm?

    Hm-m-m …. sounds like a plan …. but take the trip to the Virgin Islands too! Listen to me, because I am older, and that makes me wiser! You make your own happiness, and if there is something that you want to do – go do it! 😁
