Horribly Dressed

Of course I am not talking about the clothes I have on. Though I am glad I’m not showing this in SKYPE or face-to-face or you would agree that I am horribly dressed–but hey, I’ve not had all my cups of coffee yet, then I’ll get dressed!

I’m talking about the words I have been wearing for many months–maybe longer? I am such a person who believes that the words you use help create your own attitude–as well as attitudes of those people around you. Yet, I have slipped back into negative routines of focus: what I haven’t finished, what needs to be done, what I’m not doing, what I should be doing, lamenting how lazy I am, or whining about silly things that don’t amount to anything in the whole scheme of life.

I was thinking about the life-giving weekend this is (Easter weekend) and how so many of us have such a world of choices. I’ve missed all my blogs as much as if they are dear friends. I haven’t written on any of them in almost three years. When I started working on my Master’s Degree in Psychology in 2011, I just left all my “dear friends” behind. But, I finished my Master’s in July of 2013, and here it is 2014.

dominosI am going to get reacquainted with my “dear friends” again–I will post things I accomplish. That might simply be organizing the plethora of shoes thrown into the bottom of my closet or finishing an article and getting it sent or taking something fun or needed to someone or helping out with a volunteer project or making a nice dinner for my hubby. By shifting my focus on what I am doing instead of what I’m not doing, it creates a shift in attitude. What a person focuses on is like falling dominos: whether it is positive or negative, it simply keeps on going.

Today: I researched how to post on my blogs (I had forgotten). I am also going to attempt the pile of shoes in my closet, but even if I only get half of them organized, at least I have gotten started!
