Life is too short to bemoan Mondays… The number of tweets and posts I see weekly begrudging the fact that it is Monday makes me sad. People are officially dreading 1/7th of their lives. Are your Monday’s really that awful or have you bought in to the hype? If they are that bad what can you change? Can’t change the job, then change you. I do intervals and yoga on Mondays now because it gives me something to really look forward to tackling then centering for the week.
Life is too short to hate your body…I’m the queen of magazines. Love ‘em. Have too many of ‘em. They used to make me just wish I had a different body, smaller, lighter, tinier, fitter, any of the words on the cover really. Finally I realized that yes I will continue to improve myself, but I am wasting my life by spending it hating my body and worrying about every morsel of food. Are you spending too much of your day worrying about weight or food?
Life is too short not to buy the flowers… My husband often tells me that the “thought about buying me flowers”, but he really never did…until the last few weeks. He has stopped with the sole intention of buying me flowers because he couldn’t think of a good reason why today wasn’t a good day for flowers. What have you thought about doing for someone, but haven’t? A phone call? A letter? A hug?
Life is too short not to explore… I often drive David nuts because there is so much that I want to do. I try not to pack our weekends with things because I enjoy down time, but I want to experience everything that I possibly can! I have probably seen more in Miami than some who have lived here for years. This adds a richness to our lives and has opened me up to so many different things. Are you stuck in a weekend rut? Are you taking time for true vacations and not just stay at home work vacations?
What is your “life is too short” statement and how can you start acting on it today?
