I recently spent the weekend with my family. We went to Feast of the Hunter’s Moon, which was fun; I bought candles and soap. Also went to church. I felt so depressed and uncomfortable the entire time. I have lots of issues with church that I’m still teasing out with my therapist. Stems back to having to go alone as a teenager and not being welcomed at all. So anyway, I finally talked to Heather about being in a funk all day and she says, “it’s because you wake up with a bad attitude.” As usual, my sister is piercingly accurate 🙂 Man, I hate to get out of bed in the morning. And I hate thinking of all the things I have to do in one day. And then I get pissed that I’m running late, and on and on. This morning’s two-pound weight gain didn’t help either. My therapist suggested putting encouraging bible verses or a note to self handy in the morning to combat that. I don’t know what my note to self would look like but at least there’s some encouraging psalms out there. What do you do to start the day positively?
