I woke up this way

I woke up with negative thoughts running through my head. It’s paralyzing. And hurtful to my psyche. I’m letting every thought linger and i think manifesting ideas that aren’t even reality.

How can i set routines and make change when i don’t know who I’ll be when i wake up?

  1. Oh, my sister… I feel this to the core. I hate never knowing who I am going to be when I wake up. Yesterday I was a grump. Today a little less grumpy. I was enjoying sleeping in but had to wake up because my inlaws were leaving. I handle it the best I can. When I am in a negative mindset, I take the day off and try to switch my thoughts around. Sometimes I can do that, but I am still left feeling negative. Like the feeling in my body stays, even though my mind might be rid of the negative thoughts. I don’t know how to fix that. I got a marvelous Christmas gift from my sister in law. It is a mindfulness journal. It is called, The Mindfulness Journal, by S. J. Scott and Barrie Davenport. I will be starting it on January 1. It is full of writing prompts that are deep but practical. I am really hoping that this will help me achieve some sort of mindfulness in my life. It is broken up into weeks and tells you the best time to journal for the prompts given (morning, anytime, or evening) For instance, the first prompt is ” I reflect on the people in my life who have made me feel loved and supported. I feel grateful for…” You can write as little or as much as you want. And you can skip around in the book. I am really excited about it. You should check it out on Amazon. I think it would help you too.
