Help vs. Hurt (cont.) – Jan. 3

January 4, 2007 leahdanielle

Things I did today that helped:

1. Went shopping.

2. Arrived at work early and made my appearance in the boss’s office.

3. Ate lunch in my mom’s room (a free lunch, I might add).

4. Saw my kids for the first time in about two and a half weeks.

5. Witnessed an incredibly hilarious conversation between a three-year-old and a four-year-old.

6. Gave a friend a gift.

7. Spent time with some of my favorite people.

8. Got asked out on a date.

9. Showed off my new clothes.

10. Drank a bottle of water.

Things I did today that hurt:

1. Woke up to my alarm at 6:40 and hit snooze until 8:15.

2. Ate a chicken taco for lunch.

3. Left my phone at home by mistake.

4. Ached and ached due to my excessive exercising the night before.

5. Went straight from work to work.

6. Ate a bowl of canned chili (what was I thinking?)

7. Stayed up entirely too late (it’s after midnight).

Once again, the positives outweigh the negatives. Score!!

    Thanks. I suppose it is very similar to the ignation examen. In fact, I’m sure that’s where I got the idea.

    Honestly, I’ve been feeling a bit sluggish and down at the end of the day and doing this helps me appreciate the good things that have happened and to also realize that more good happens on the typical day than bad. It keeps things in perspective and it makes me happy.

    And yes, I’ll do this just about everyday, I’m sure.
