one. thing. at . a. time.

It has been a very lazy Sunday in our household today.  My day started at 5 a.m. this morning. I went into work for about two hours to finish something up for my boss. I came home and jumped into a nice relaxing bath. I sort of napped later for about ten minutes. I’ve been in a crappy mood today which is never fun. I feel like I have so much to do, but I don’t know where to start. To tell you the truth,  I don’t even really know what I need to do exactly. I just know I should be doing something. I have all of these bigger than life goals and I want everything to happen NOW. I need to lose the weight I gained in VA, I need to finish school, I need to be completely plant-based, I need to use healthier products, I need more money, I need to plan those books I want to write, I want a house, a new wardrobe, to travel………..I NEED, I WANT……. this is why I get frustrated. It’s too much at the moment.

I started to spiral a little. I sat on the couch and felt sorry for myself most of the day. Feeling groggy and grumpy.  Then I heard a little voice inside my head that said, “One thing at a time woman!”. I needed to hear this. I need to stop and be thankful of what I have and slow it down. Getting frustrated like that isn’t going to help me at all. It’s actually counterproductive. It’s not exactly fair, to me or Thomas, so luckily I’m snapping out of it. I know it’s normal to have days like this and I accept it.

My lesson? Calm the chatter in my head and take one thing at a time. It doesn’t all have to happen right away. Yes, I want it now, but in all good time. I will take one step at a time. So I’m doing little things here and there today, since I’m not in the mood to do anything. I went on a target run to get some pants and then Thomas and I went to the grocery. Two things accomplished. Next, I’ll clean the bathroom when I go back in there. Little things, but I’m doing them.

On Saturday, Thomas and I went out exploring again. That’s becoming my favorite activity. We went to a historical farm at Slate Run metro park. It was so peaceful and beautiful.

It’s  a functioning farm with people in costumes from the 1800’s. It’s pretty cool. I didn’t get any pictures inside the house. There were too many people in order for me to get photos. But my attention was on the outside.

Maude and Sailor. 🙂

They had other animals other than horses, but they were my favorite. I will probably be going back to see them. I love going to the metro parks. There are so many of them around Columbus.

Till next time!
