I recently I’ve noticed Negative Nelly creeping into my thoughts. Where is Positive Patty?!?!?! I’ve decided that I need an attitude adjustment in multiple areas of my life…
- Work…I am ready for the end of the school year and it is still 7 weeks away. Is there a way to fast forward to the end of the school year and then have time just stand still??? 😉
- Training…I’ve allowed negative thoughts to creep into my mind during training sessions…this is NOT good. It is definitely time to ignore Negative Nelly and start focusing on Positive Patty. I am ready to ride outside and swim at the outdoor 50 meter pool, but it is April in central Iowa. That means about 2 more months until the outdoor pool opens and who knows when Mother Nature will decide to cooperate and provide us with warmer weather.
- Home…I want to have a clean house again, but with all the training, the rainy weather, muddy backyard and two black labs going in and out of the house, I think it will have to wait a bit longer. We also need to take some time and make more healthy, ready to eat foods and restock our freezer.
- Finances…Since the start of 2015, we have spent a lot of money…new bike for the Iron Hippie, deductible for a car accident I was in, restocking the cupboards/refrigerator/freezer/pantry, paying for our summer CSA in advance, paying for new parts to our washer, not to mention all the monthly bills we have. It is definitely time to start saving money!
Have you been in a negative funk? When this happens, what do you do to bring Positive Patty back to the forefront?
