Welcome to the second post on my positivity series. If you want to know what this series is about you can read about it here.
“To work hard towards a goal, to not give up, to give it your best shot is determination.” – This Scribbler Mum
“Aargh! No no. It’s bad enough that I might have a stomach bug but for my knee to be sore too!
And it’s raining again?! Typical. Just when you thought everything is going to be all ‘happy sunshine’, it all gets taken away.
It’s like everything is going against everything that I want to accomplish today.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
It could be worse. But it’s not.
So what if it’s a little bit rainy again? At least there’s no drought. So what if my tummy is somewhat irritable? I can use a little bit of fasting. So what if my knee is a little sore? I just need to stretch a little bit and take my time walking and enjoy the scenery for once.
Today, I am determined.
I am determined to get up and wobble my way to getting everybody ready for the day. I am determined to make the beds, wash the dishes and tidy up any mess. I am determined to get myself tidy too and face the day. I am determined to take my baby to the nearby library for some rhythm and rhyme fun. I am determined to go outside with my family so that our little girl can ride her new bike. I am determined to enjoy our day out despite the freezing cold. I am determined to get some work done early enough so I can binge watch Netflix before going to bed.
Today, I am determined to not let any small hindrance set me back from what I want to accomplish today. Today, I am determined to have a positive attitude despite the gloomy weather.”
Sometimes even though the tasks we need to do are just regular things, a minor setback can throw us off just because we are not in the right mindset. A dose of a positive word to focus on for the day, can sometimes make a difference to save us from ruining our plans for the day.
