Hi, how was everyone’s day?
Mine was pretty good. We were actually a little slow at work which was a nice change of pace. It was a good opportunity to catch my breath and do a little thinking. I was trying to come up with a logo design for the blog but I had been having some mixed feelings about it so I decided to head to starbucks over my lunch break to try and brainstorm it out. I had several ideas but nothing that really struck me. Plus I was now feeling dissatisfied with the title of my blog and considering switching gears entirely – *frustrating*. I ended up coming away from my little brainstorming session feeling more confused and anxious than I had before. Back at work, I was talking to a coworker about my house hunting process (another thing that’s been weighing on my mind recently) and some of the concerns I was having. When she congratulated me on the search and said she was excited for me it actually caught me a little off guard. I had to step back and remind myself that this was supposed to be an exciting process.
That’s when I realized I’ve been looking at things way too negatively lately, with both house hunting and developing my blog. I had been turning what should be a fun and exciting process into a lot of stress and headache. True starting up a new blog and searching for a house can be stressful but worrying about all of the little things is not going to do me any good. By focusing just on my concerns, not only am I allowing stress to cloud my vision but I’m preventing myself from being able to fully enjoy and appreciate the experience. Looking at both of these things in a more positive light will likely lead to a better outcome and I’ll have the added bonus of less stress (win-win!). So I’m deciding from here on out to get excited because I should be – it’s exciting stuff! 🙂
After work I was starving so I stopped at Paradise Bakery for a salad.
I ordered the crumbly blue cheese salad. It usually comes with a ceasar dressing but I opted for a side of balsalmic and no cheese. I also added chicken. I was craving protein and I wolfed this down.
Then it was time for yoga. Overall a very good night. 🙂
Two things that made my day today:
1. My coworker brought me green tea out of the blue. 🙂
I did my first headstand tonight in yoga! (Unfortunately no pic..) It was definitely not something I ever thought I would be able to do and I really liked it ! It was invigorating and made me feel strong. 😀
Hope you all are having a great night. See you tomorrow!
