Restarting the Attitude Makeover

Filed under: Attitude Makeover — Mom @ 11:23 pm

It’s time to restart the makeover.  I was so much happier when I refused to get upset about the little things in life.  Whatever happened, I just let it roll off my back and moved on.  Like so many other things, stress built up and knocked me off course.

Monday morning, I’m going to start over.  Tomorrow, I will not let anything step in the way of me having a good day.  I will address anything that needs to be addressed in a positive manner.  I will ignore anything negative, I will not dwell on it.  One day at a time, it really works.

Every day, I will make a list of five good things that happened.  I’ll start that tonight:

  1. I had a great time at the races with a friend I hadn’t seen in 13 years.  I hadn’t been to the track in even longer, probably 15 years.  We had a great time introducing Khaila to stock car racing.  It won’t become an every week occurrence, but it is something we can add to our list of things to do close to home.
  2. While we were there, we ran into Khaila’s first daycare provider and her husband.  Millie and Grandpa Donnie took care of her from 4 weeks until she was almost two, and then again for a few months before she turned three.  Even though Rick is at home with the kids, I’m almost tempted to ask if she’d watch them a couple of days.  Khaila remembered them and obviously misses them!
  3. Three times in one week, I’ve spent time with friends.  There was a time when I felt friendless, but not anymore!
  4. Got a great phone call from my Sysco rep.  I love having a good relationship with him!  It makes doing little bits of work on my day off not so painful!
  5. I’m shutting my computer as soon as I finish typing this so I can snuggle in for the night with my husband and my daughter.

I dare anyone who reads this to list five positive things and leave a link in a comment here.  Mondays seem to be the international day of gloom but it doesn’t have to be.  Take the first step to making Mondays great days!
