The last few weeks have been brutal at work and I am mentally exhausted. I need to take a minute and just whine about work. Work has been killer and the paperwork mountains keep building. Don't get me wrong, I love that I have a job and I am very grateful to be employed but I am not gonna lie, office life is getting to me. You know the old saying, "Shit rolls downhill" and I am at the bottom. The only thing I can do is take deep breaths and keep plugging a long. Thankfully, I had a great weekend with not much on the calendar recharge a bit.
I did a lot of eye rolling throughout the book. If you haven't read it, it about the Law of Attraction. Basically, my dumbed down version is if you think positive thoughts, you attract like things. If you think negative thoughts, you are inviting negative things into your life. I am sure there is more to it, but the book kept repeating the same thing over and over so I ended up reading the chapter summaries.
I didn't find the idea very earth shattering because most people already know that thoughts are powerful things and eventually become our actions. I was expecting more of a REAL secret. ha!
With that said, the book wasn't a complete waste of time, it is a good reminder that negative thoughts can end up being self-fulfilling prophecy that will sabotage any success. The one part of the book that I am going to apply is visualize myself at my goal weight and live as though I am already there (I kind of am doing that already, but I need more practice).
And now for my very own "Secret".....
I signed up for Grandma's Half Marathon. Actually, I entered my name to be in the lottery. I am sure I am going to get in because I visualized myself getting the acceptance email (a book technique from The Secret, ha!). I know I said, NO MORE RACES. But I am glutton for punishment and slightly insane. I need to do this because I cut out everything that was keeping me insanely busy. Now I need to do this for myself and have a fun goal to work towards.
Off and Running.......
