When we are in a reactive state of mind, when an opportunity knocks. We are usually too overwhelmed or frustrated to see it. If we do see it, we’re usually overly critical and negative
It’s been a while since I’ve referred back to my Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff calendar. This is one of the older quotes that I kept because I felt it described my occasional state of mind. This reactive state of mind is where I spend too much of my time. I am always on the defense. I am always feeling threatened. My first response is to be negative, to complain, to just be grumpy.
I need to focus in the idea of changing the way I think, especially tomorrow. I don’t want to celebrate my 30th birthday feeling down, sad, and miserable… Much like I did today.
It’s mostly in my head. I’ve got to clear it out.
