Get Yourself Together

  1. Start the day off fresh
    • Did my best considering I’m SICK. The freshest way to start my day was washing my face and listening to mood music while not thinking about work or worries. Simply being in the moment. Not the best fresh start, but I did my best, and that’s what counts.
  2. Ask questions
    • I’m still very sick. My questions involved were toward myself: what can I do today? How can I make myself feel better? What can I do to improve my week regardless of how I feel? And surprisingly, it worked in my favor. Having questions gave me a chance to answer, rather than just re-spouting worries to myself. And having an answer made things easier to look at. So, when you have some issues, phrase questions rather than telling yourself you have problems.
  3. What the universe/God/whatever knows about you is more important than what others think of you
    • It’s not my business what others think of me. That’s why I wear black everyday.
