Lately, I’ve had so much negativity in my brain and body and I know it’s not good for my mental and physical health. I can see it affecting the whole family and I hate hearing the way we are all speaking to each other. I find it difficult to talk to anyone about my feelings and ask for help so I need to stop and pause before it gets too ugly.
My favourite saying is ‘Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day”. I need to keep reminding myself this and find that little something good in every day. I’m hoping that all the negative thoughts and energy will pass and positive thoughts and energy will start to creep back into my life. For the sake of the happiness of our family, I need to make some changes.
I am going to attempt to be positive and upbeat on my Facebook, Instagram and Blog from now on. I won’t dwell on the things that are hurting or upsetting me. I’m going to share all the good things, no matter how small and insignificant – a flower, a calf, sunshine. Just that little something small that has made me smile on that particular day. The more positives I have, the more will follow. At least that’s what the experts say don’t they?
Yesterday I picked up my big camera with a macro lens attached and took Minnie for a walk down to the river. She’s so photogenic (when she sits still) and we had a lovely hour just wandering around and exploring. She’s getting more settled now and is a happy, crazy dog. She even listens occasionally now and will sometimes come back when I call her. She knows how to sit but will only do it when she wants to. She didn’t even chase the cows the other day which is a huge improvement. I think one scared her when it turned around and snorted at her a while back. The back paddock is getting really dry as you can see in the photos. We are in desperate need of some rain. Some of the houses around town have run out of water and have had to buy water. We are lucky we haven’t had to do that yet.
I promise myself happy thoughts and kind words from now on. Things will improve and I will be a better person for it.
Today’s ‘something good’ – Roast lamb in the oven for dinner!
