There’s something to be said of new beginnings. Of fresh starts. Of do-overs, if you will.
Today is June 1st. A brand new month, and let me tell you – I sure am glad to see May over and done with.
When I think back to the month of May, and really – the majority of the first half of 2018 thus far, the Friends theme song pops into my head. Not the whole thing, just a certain part…
“It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear. When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month or even your year…”
But, as you all know, I’m a generally optimistic person. So, I’m going to get up, brush myself off and take on the rest of 2018 with a gusto!
There’s a lot going on. There are a lot of things for me to look forward to and plan for in the upcoming months, so I’m choosing to focus my energy on the good in my life.
It’s easy to get swept away into a spiral of negativity…especially for someone who is battling depression and anxiety. One negative thought will manifest into a neverending negative thought process and next thing you know, you’re left sitting there wondering if there was *really* ever any good in your life to begin with.
But like I said, I’m going to pull myself together and start appreciating the good going on. I’m gonna tell, “DO OVER!” to the universe and start anew!
So bye-bye Downer JennJenn, new month – who dis?
And to end this little ramble off, here’s a picture of some gorgeous flowers that I saw on my way to work this morning. Because you know what? Sometimes you just need to slow down, and stop to smell the flowers (not just the roses). Literally.
