Need to Stir Up the Happy Dust

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Well, the dust has settled & life doesn't seem so promising anymore.
I get up, sit in my comfy chair, watch Morning Joe while I cruise SPARKPEOPLE. The next thing I know, it's the afternoon & I haven't accomplished much at all.
I am bored & a little sad.

Then I asked myself-
Did you read a devotional today?
Did you pray?
Read & reread your "Surrender Statement?"
Meditate & use visualization?
Um . . .well . . .
What stopped you?

Luckily, I found a great motivational article about changing your "fatitude." It seems I'm bogged down in drama. Coach Dean says, "drama saps your motivation" and "choose to stop the drama and adopt a more positive attitude."
How many times do I have to remind myself?
As many times as it takes.
Tomorrow I will start a routine that will help me accomplish all of the things that will move me forward, sprinkled with Happy Dust!

    making a list is a great idea. it can help to fill your day and keep you on track. take some time every night and make a list of everything you want to accomplish the next day and look at it often. i am sure this will be a huge help to keep you on track and lift your spirits.

    here's wishing you a better, happier day tomorrow!

    emoticon IDEA! SP can be addicting...but we need it as a guide..but don't get bogged down!
    I jump on here several times a day but keep my routines. I have a list on my frig and check them off as I go!
    Now at night while everyone else is watching tv or doing whatever..then is my time for SP!
    But please get your activities in during the day!
    Good luck on your new Goals!
