…that i wish i had felt well enough to cook these past couple days or had the motivation to cook right now – the light this morning is perfect for an early morning food photo session.
…how strange it would be to 5-years-ago-me that i wake up and see sunshine and my first thought is either, “oooh, i want to go run!” or “this light is perfect to photograph my food”. both of those things are very different from the “it’s saturday morning so i obviously have a hangover from friday night and am sleeping until i can drag myself out to bed to eat a greasy grilled cheese”.
…about how to begin blog posts. i always tend to use a greeting: “good morning!” or “hi everyone!” or something along those lines. a greeting feels natural, like a conversation with my readers, but it also feels repetitive. should i go back to what i learned in my writing classes and come up with a strong introduction sentence with a hook? start off with a joke? interesting fact? personal story?
…that i’ve got a very busy week ahead of me. my plan is to write a couple of lists to organize myself this morning and then letting any thoughts of those tasks and the corresponding stress go until monday morning comes.
…how thankful i am that i took a leap of faith and enrolled at iin. i am loving everything that i’m learning and am applying it to my own life. it’s not just nutrition education. the curriculum really focuses on all of the factors that make someone a healthy person – mind and body. through the lectures and exercises in the course, i am finding that my mind hasn’t really been in the best place. negative thoughts definitely existed and weren’t dealt with, so they became more and more of a dominating force in my mind. now that i’ve realized this and have learned some ways to address those thoughts and deal with them, my world is a much better place!
…that i should have made a bigger pot of coffee this morning.
…that i woke up feeling better than yesterday because i was able to sleep last night (!!). i’m still not 100%, but i’m getting there! my plan is to continue to take it easy this morning because brad and i have big plans tonight & i don’t want to feel like crap for them.
…that this was the perfect quote to arrive in my inbox this morning.
