I am trying to answer question #2 of the daily work. What wasn’t great about yesterday…and how can you change it in your mind to truly be great..
Yesterday I felt a lot of anxiety and restlessness. I was absorbed in thoughts that I shouldn’t be feeling anxiety and restlessness….something is wrong with me. As a result of being absorbed in thoughts, I was unable to recall words while talking to others. I decided that this was the start of alzheimer’s (my father died of it). After struggling with negative thoughts, anxiety, and restlessness all day, I decided that the best thing I could do is eat popcorn to distract myself. I did, and I was distracted. I’m trying to tell myself that it is good that I didn’t eat sugar, but that doesn’t feel honest. So, how can I make that experience yesterday truly great? I will say that I talked to my husband about it and he was kind. Afterwards, I did get right back on protocol for dinner.
