So two weeks ago we were presented with the challenge to keep opinions to ourselves. Hands down, it has been the hardest thing of all for me to do…whether verbal or nonverbal, I tend to have an opinion for pretty much everything, my mind is constantly on the go.
Fast forward to this week…can you imagine trying to do a seven day mental diet?
If this is unfamiliar to you, a mental diet involves no negative thoughts. You have seven seconds to get the thought out of your head and replaced with a positive one otherwise you have to start the whole exercise again and begin at day one.
Needless to say, pretty much every day this week has been day one……..LOL
The weather, the driving, the new shifts and random sleep patterns that I am still working on and getting used to has definitely reinstated some opinions. I must say though, this program has certainly focused my thoughts elsewhere and brought forth my patience. I take the extra moment to think before I react.
I must admit, I have been slipping with the daily routine and exercises, however I do acknowledge the changes that I’ve noticed. I have made a commitment, a promise to myself and even though I have slipped with the tasks, I have to see it through.
