I read in The Spark a while back about turning things around. I have mentioned this before because it really makes sense to me. I had a bad day at work today and an ok day at school. I am stressing about a midterm I haven’t found time to study for and normally these are things that drive me to eat when I get home.
For some reason I was craving a run instead of chocolate. All day long I thought about how good it would feel to go outside in the 55* weather and go for a run under the clear blue sky with the sun shining down on me.
So that’s just what I did. And it wasn’t a struggle to get myself out there.
The run was tough today for some reason, maybe because I got out of work so late that I barely had time to eat my sandwich, let alone anything else. But it sure felt good. Why can’t my brain work like this everyday? :)
But I turned things around. I made a choice to have a positive spark that just lit the fire to turn my day around. Now I’m covered in sweat and sitting in the sun porch feeling the nice breeze blow over my reddened face. I am less stressed and am much more happy than I was when I got home! :)
