My previous blog was about changing the course of a moment, a day, a week and so on. Yesterday I chose to change the way my day was going. You see it could have been the usual routine with my 14 month old baby girl. I had just written my morning post called “Change it up” and began to wonder how I could change my day. As the day progressed, household responsibilities consumed my thoughts. And then I began cooking and attending to all baby needs. I understand that there are things in our day, that must get done. Yet there are also things we can let go of, at least for a while. So around 2 pm I was feeling sluggish and bored of the same routine. It dawned on me that I wrote a post about the very thing I was experiencing yesterday morning.
Yet, no matter how much I wanted to change my day, it wasn’t happening. Why? I began to ask myself. And I realized that cognitively I was stuck in the same thought pattern, but emotionally I was ready to move forward. So what did I do? I changed my thoughts to match my emotions and “Viola!!!”, I had a much better day. So did my sweet baby girl! Why? Because Olivia (our daughter) and I went outside and had a picnic with snacks enjoying the beautiful weather. She even got to play with her friend across the street. Did I mention that I also had a great workout walking with her up and down our drive way. We both had our needs met enjoying sunshine, play and snacktime. A win- win!
I must share photos of our beautiful baby girl enjoying snack and her pink swing! When you decide to change-up something in your day or week, feel free to share on feedback form below! I’d like to know you changed your day.
Be Well, Kimberly
