01//03/11 – 10 Minutes of Exercise – Off on Mondays – H2O – 6
Good morning, Mintdom!
One of the things that I keep reading about is not to cling to old ways. Here are a few of my old ways that I am letting go.
Isolating when I am not feeling good about myself or have gotten off track (This is my biggest one) Solution #1: Stay present, involved, ask for help (shudder), and continue writing and posting Mintdom.
Take Flight when I have the Fight or Flight choice – I flee. When I get off course, I keep going. If I do not like the results of something that I am doing – I quit. This is part of another old way – Perfectionism. Now perfectionism is something that I never thought I had because I never did anything perfect. Solution #2: Stay present, stay put, forge ahead, put up my dukes, and be ok with my imperfections.
Rationalization: An example of this is how I am stuck on the idea that I do not like to drink water. I even moved my goal down to 4 glasses per day with the rationalization that I was starting slow. hmpf! I also find articles that tell me that drinking all that water is not necessary to back me up! The other thing I tend to do is say to myself things like, “I will have this one __________ (fill in the blank) and then tomorrow, I will do better.” Solution #3: Stick to my commitMINTs if I run into trouble, see solution #1 and 2.
I can tell you that the solutions are not as easy as 1-2-3 for me. Most things that I let go of have long claw marks on them! LOL Can you relate to any of these?
AffirMINTion: I LOVE drinking my 8 glasses of water a day! (on my second glass this morning)
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
What are you waiting for?
Life is good!
PS I am still having technical difficulties with my computer this morning so I only have an old Minty photo. This morning’s post is not perfect and that is good!
