Little things matter a whole fucking lot! I feel like shit. My sinuses are killing me and I wanna go sleep. But I set my day with intention with the stupidest thing: loading my dishwasher. I didn’t want to. But I did and I did it the way I like to (which I didn’t even realize I hadn’t been doing for about a month- stupid right). Little victories add up to BIG goals accomplished. Drink that glass of water before bed. Wake up that 10m earlier. Pick those kids up with a fucking smile on your face. You can set yourself up for good if you just take one small “bad” and turn it into a ✅. I tell people to do this all the time: Control your controllables. Yet to do it is often ridiculously hard. That’s why you pick something so stupid small... at first. That gets your ball rolling and then the next things is a little bigger (my closet needed arranged, still small), but then, client sessions went well, training went well (sorry for coughing and snorting all over the gym, anyone who was there when I was 😬🤷🏼♀️) and now programming is almost done and Picking up my kids doesn’t sound so daunting. Just do the small things, consistently. You’re fucking welcome, you Badass Mother Truckin humans!
Dammit!! I hate making mistakes! The worst for me is missing an appointment, not putting it in my calendar right or forgetting one. That just happened to me! I forgot my counseling appointment and that dreaded text came that said, “Ummm... are we meeting today?” DAMMIT!!! Luckily my counselor is amazing! She hates it when she’s the one who makes the mistake, too so she was thrilled it wasn’t her who messed up! We make mistakes all the time! We have “Oops!” moments and how we bounce back is really all that matters. The mistake is gone, in the past, with no chance of changing. But the next moment is still available to us and what we do in the next moment is all that matters!
