or alternatively titled "Watch me fall."
I took Monday pretty seriously in terms of a day off from work. I deemed it "Wedding Planning Day." You see, I've been getting pretty stressed the heck out about my to do list and it was time some of those to do's got DONE!
So, the theme for Monday was progress. Happily, I can say that I checked several things off, even if that does mean there are still more things needed to do on said items (choose the linen color, send payment, etc). Feels good to move down that list!
And then Tuesday was much more of a 'Watch Me Fall' kind of day.
I have an exam on Thursday and far too much to learn or memorize still in 24 hours. So last night, at the library I had a little mental breakdown. It ended with me sobbing on the drive home.
I was physically and emotionally drained. I felt like I could conquer nothing and life was conquering me.
So a few minutes after walking in the door defeated, Pete suggested a bundled walk around the neighborhood (he knows how to cheer me up). And then, I read the paper and finally, rolled out my yoga mat and spent 10 min doing some easy stretching and headstands.
The point is, when you're in a place where everything seems wrong, think of one thing you can do to make it right. On my drive home, I knew I'd be having a date with my yoga mat because it's a great source of relaxation for me.
Here's to starting today on a better foot than yesterday.
For fun, what have you been eating for breakfast? I love hearing what others eat as it's probably my favorite meal of the day. Yesterday, I had overnight oats w/ frozen raspberries, chia seeds, cinnamon and almond butter mixed in.
