It is raining here in Flagstaff, AZ and it is so wonderful! Being a native Arizonan I tend to get really excited when we get rain. I feel like it is a sign of renewal and fresh beginnings. Also, here in town everyone has the most beautiful spring bulbs blooming! I am mildly jealous but I still enjoy the beauty of the plants. Nature and the weather have improved my mood today.
I spent the morning stretching, working out and doing some yoga type stuff with my high school colorguard students. Physical activities have also contributed to my positive mood today.
I am so focused on my positive mood because I felt like poop this weekend. I have a feeling sloth had something to do with it. Essentially I sat at my computer and worked my little fingers off for two days straight. I am sure anxiety had lots to do with my overworking and obsessing about my business. I just feel like I am not achieving the things I want to right now. So what do I do I crank up the pressure and start riding myself to do more, improve things, make changes, work harder etc. I am my own worst critic, I know this.
Thankfully I am feeling more relaxed and less anxious today. Sometimes we all just really need to take it easy on ourselves. Maybe we don’t get to where we think we should be, maybe we don’t turn a profit, reach our goal, etc. The important thing is what we learned and experienced as a result of trying to attain our goals. Life is not about winning, loosing or achieving it is about the journey!
So, with that said I am having a cup of coffee writing my thoughts down with the doors/ windows open. The birds are singing, the air smells clean and crisp from the recent rain fall. I am still in my PJ’s and I am just savoring the moment.
