Do you want to know what I do extremely well? I let people get the best of me. I open the door to my thoughts like it’s a hot next door neighbor and let people take control of my mind and thoughts and wreck havoc on my mood. Enough is enough.
I decided that I literally have way too much going on in my life to let even one turd fire make my day(s) miserable. If you’re going to ruin my mood, then you clearly aren’t someone I need in my life. My Dad once gave me a set number of days to have bad thoughts before I had to get over it. Years ago he told me I had 3 hours to get over my ex-boyfriend. I bargained and got 3 days of moping, although it took me a solid 2 years to get over it.
I will be filling my non-existent free time with ultimate frisbee. Jenny suckered me into playing every Tuesday night. CrossFit teammate Tucker is also on my team by a sheer moment of luck. I was planning on just standing there and frolicking around the field, but it turns out you actually have to run around and “do things” during the game. Frisbee with my dog is more fun because I don’t have to 1) run 2) sweat 3) know how to catch a frisbee.
I practiced part of the strength workout that will be in Saturday’s competition yesterday morning. After that, I spent time mobilizing and stretching. That was the last of the workouts until comp day! I am realllllllllllly excited to run next week. I mean REALLY.
Can I also just tell you that my cousin Jenn is the best. She gave me this chocolate on Easter because she wasn’t sure if the Easter bunny came to my house while my parents were out of town. She is pretty much awesome. Years ago we used to only really talk at family gatherings, and the talking wasn’t that much. Growing up, we were never extremely close, but over the past few years, especially this last year, she has literally become such an important person in my life. She is no longer just family. She’s more than a friend. And let me just say that I am excited for some of the big things we have planned! Back to the chocolate though. Life changing!
In bed last night at 8 and a rest day for me today, which meant sleeping in until 7. Glorious, glorious sleep!
Do you let people ruin your mood or day? How do you overcome that?
