Sometimes we have to make bad decisions. Ones that leave a bitter taste in our mouth. For all the freedom we have, there are those situations where we get caught between a rock and a hard place. Though we may not feel that we have a choice in a decision we need to make, we always have a choice in how we see it through.
Last week I wrote about how to be imperfect. It was the product of a week or two of farcical fails and I was looking for a way to drag myself out of the self criticism mind-set. This week, I want to continue on that path, focusing on practicing gratitude and celebrating small victories. It has been just over a year since I started blogging and I have been spending some time recently thinking about all that I have achieved.
This week I had a bit of a disaster.
It involved my cat, a cup of tea and my laptop. I’m fairly sure you can guess how that ended.
You know in films when things happen in slow motion? Life chose that moment to imitate art!
For those of you who missed it, last Tuesday I made a spur of the moment decision to begin a new blog series documenting my efforts at personal growth. Until now, my efforts have been well intended but inconsistent! In other words I try, but some days I just want to have an easy life and spend a day watching Netflix and eating pizza with my crochet hook.
(Reminder to self. Being able to say no is actually a very useful skill!)
I’m meant to be at yoga tonight. I almost always go on a Tuesday, but I was late registering and the class was full.
However, I’m starting to believe that happened for a reason because it allowed me to watch a film called “I am not your guru” with Tony Robbins. I am a bit blown away right now. I have pretty much been an emotional wreck for the last two hours (I had to stop it twice to go make a cup of tea, because I’m British and that’s what we do).
