Ever have a day when you’re just not feeling it?

I’m just having one of those days, and I don’t know why…I’m just not feeling it.  I’m not exactly sure where my weekend went – I was busy but I think I don’t have much to show for it.  Maybe I’m not as well rested as I thought I’d be. I don’t know but I am just not feeling it today and if I could call in to my corporate job, I just might, but ya know what – I don’t have a corporate job, and I don’t have sick days and if I don’t show up I don’t make much money. SO, here’s my questions for y’all – how do you feel it when you just don’t?

For days like this I keep a little list of the things I am grateful for. One of them is that I don’t have a corporate job, and all the mess that goes along with it.  Been there, done that – was pretty miserable most of the time.  I love that what I do effects people immediately.  I love that I get to make the schedule and that my training goes directly to my bottom line.  I am sort of a control freak, but I like the “buck” stopping with me. I am grateful that I get to  spend time with my kids, and that many of my students and clients have become my friends.  I am grateful that I get to talk to y’all and hear about your successes – you inspire me daily!

I also have music.  Some people have art or poetry or yoga or their bible.  I have music, there’s no way the anyone will ever hear me sing in public, but in the car driving to work, I am a Broadway star (at least in my own mind).  There’s a release and a grounding all in one in art, it resets me and I appreciate that on days like this.

And this is not the day to skip breakfast, at least make yourself a smoothie for the road. Nourish your body and your soul will follow.  Healthy snacking is key for days when you are working extra hard just to get out the door.

Take an extra minute to ground yourself. Set your intentions for the day, and then remind yourself of them when you get to work.
