Week 7 – Looks Like I Picked The Wrong Week…

Do you ever start a project and then think “I picked the wrong week to start this!”

I certainly have!  And this week is no exception. That phrase went through my mind SO MANY TIMES this week! Between the stress of having my house on the market, helping my boyfriend get his house ready to put on the market, buying a house together…

…it made me wonder “What was I thinking taking all this on at the same time?”

While the truth is that there’s never a “perfect” time to do anything, all I could think of wass the movie “Airplane!”

So, here’s the deal…

This week we were challenged to go on a 7-Day “Mental Diet” to eliminate negative thinking from our lives for 7 days.  OK, I’m a pretty positive person, I can do this…

WRONG!

The point is to catch ourselves entertaining negative thoughts and to get rid of them by focusing on something positive…it’s a chance to change your mindset.

IT’S A DO OVER!

I’m in the process of selling my house. I got the inspection report from the buyer.

DO OVER!

Dealing with Xfinity/Comcast over billing issues…for the 3rd month in a row.

DO OVER!

My coffee maker died. (On a morning I REALLY needed coffee!)

DO OVER!

A rare south Texas freeze warning requiring me to drag the plants around the house to the garage in cold, windy, wet weather.

DO OVER!

Getting sick from running myself ragged and spending the day in bed rather than packing.

DO OVER! DO OVER! DO OVER!

Well, you get the idea.

It’s an interesting experiment, and one I will definitely be continuing beyond the 7-days…even if it’s not a requirement for the MKMMA course.

Why? Because I’m learning a few things about myself in this process.

  • It’s becoming easier to catch myself CREATING the negative thoughts, so I can stop them from entering my subconscious mind.
  • When I don’t catch myself creating these thoughts, I can at least banish the negative thoughts from my mind fairly quickly.
  • I’m becoming hyper-sensitive to negative people, and they’re just not fun to be around.
