oooph! how early did it feel waking up today after a long holiday weekend?
even went to bed by 9PM last night to ensure 8 hours of sleep.
but it hurt getting up at 5:16 in the AM today.
my body does NOT like alarms. whose does? I would like to know! I prefer the natural method of waking up. any tips on this, my ears are dying to know! do share!
but I dragged myself into my AM daily activities. I have to get moving right away. otherwise no moving happens.
did some EFT work in the kitchen while the coffee was brewing and toast toasting. and began to feel better, bit more alert, some-what more energized. amazing how well tapping works!
but my new mood was quickly interrupted after returning to my AM writing place. as I found myself bothered by something someone didn’t say to me. but then another one did.
whaaaat? I isolated the feeling down to ‘I felt left out.’ hellooooo? I’m the one everyone talks to when they have a problem. I’m the empathetic ear. I want to be there! that’s how I assign value to myself. so whose business am I in? by allowing a preference, oversight, or whatever the reason why I was being overlooked…to bother me. I can’t control when others reach out to me.
oh right. that last bit. that’s the rub. it’s fulfilling to me to provide support. once I identified the source. bit selfish, eh? 😉 I did some self-coaching. and felt better. so decided to move on.
but unfortunately, the ball had already been set in motion. and when I found myself rushed to walk away from my laptop to get ready for work…the negative thoughts started to cascade…
and it was all down a treacherous slope from there…not to mention the hub and I were completely off on our getting ready routine. bordering on irritated words being exchanged. after almost walking smack into each other crossing paths. clearly the self-coaching and tapping efforts didn’t stick. I blame the early hour. 😉
while I was finishing up getting ready, figuring out what to do with the bangs I had screwed up by getting them partially wet in the shower, I said to my hub, “I just want to reset this mood that I’m in, because I know it’s not good and will likely get worse once I get to work. you know, re-entry and all.”
he replied, “just let it un-happen.”
that caused me to pause. and consider resetting. I let that word sink in. muttering it softly to myself. testing it out. genius!
I said, “un-happen, love it. thanks baby. thanks baby!”
and do I did.
what do you let un-happen? I’m curious!
ps. so much for my breathing and smiling in 2013… 😉
