Thursday's are usually my long days. I teach 5 classes back to back with one 15 minute break in the morning and 35 minutes for lunch. I used wake up on Thursday's and have that "oooohhh boy it's Thursday again" negative attitude. This September, when I started back at school, I decided to look at Thursdays differently. I decided that I would no longer dread long Thursdays, but I would find a reason to be excited about them LOL Honestly, it took a few weeks of me TELLING myself that I was going to LOVE Thursday's in order for the feeling to start kicking in!! It's been just over a month now and every Thursday has been smooth :) I'm so glad that I started thinking positively about Thursdays when this year started because that positivity really helped today! It was almost like it was automatic LOL While the heat and lack of shade would have made me cranky and kept me from going outside last year, TODAY was the complete opposite. I had a big smile on my face, sweating it out, playing kickball, out of breath and loving every moment right along side my students! The only difference was my change of perspective...
I laughed to myself as I drove home today, thinking about how today's experience mirrored what is going on in my fitness journey. It's crazy how one change in perspective can take you from disgruntled and unfocused to positive and committed.
I am loving the journey that I am on!!! I know that it will bring out the best in me...
