So getting your head in the game is at least half the battle, but it’s much easier said than done. Staying positive and being aware of the positive in life has helped get me through many obstacles–yes, I can and do often think of the many positive things I have to be thankful for, even in my situation. But I really need to sharpen my mental fortitude because I know I have a long road ahead of me and my positive attitude could use some reinforcement.
Over the last few months, I’ve been working on meditation, but I’ve been squeezing it in here and there, which isn’t too great when half the day is already gone and I could’ve used it in the morning. I needed to start the day right…with clarity and peace. Enter morning routine. Kirk had been doing it for a while. It takes discipline–discipline I didn’t have because I was up half the night with our infant and I didn’t want this cutting into my 4 hours of sleep. But he’s now sleeping through the night most nights, so what better a time.
Hoping to get the 3-2-1 to all 3’s over the next few months. And I’m playing around with some apps for meditation and yoga, with the goal of transitioning off of them. My youngest woke up right before yoga, so he was climbing over and under me most of the time. Fun for him. Not great for me. Tomorrow, I’ll just try not to hit snooze–twice. 😉
Hope you all have spent some time thinking about how you can toughen up mentally and continue forging your mettle! If you have, then take the effort to plan and the courage to execute! You have it in you!
