Today I told my husband that I wasn’t feeling very Optimistic October. I told him that I felt sad and angry today and just wanted to wallow in it. I also don’t feel like eating healthy tonight. Do you notice a theme in all of this?
Everyone has feelings- good and bad- but we have to be able to override them and not let them control us. I am still working on not giving in to my feelings (or, um, eating my feelings). If I gave into every feeling that I experienced, then I would be a basket case…or more of one than I am now! 😉 Optimism means choosing joy and a good attitude, in spite of how you feel. That’s easier said than done sometimes! So, this optimist ate her healthy dinner, wrote this post, and turned my frown upside down. Now I feel much better!
