Yesterday, was a cluster fuck. Excuse my language but sometime’s I have a “potty” mouth. For the life of me I could not shake my bad mood that my husband originally put me in haha anyways…

TODAY I CHOOSE JOY! Hoda from the Today Show has the best quotes on Instagram. They are inspiring. They make me smile and sometimes laugh. Today, I decided this one really fit my mood. I’m REALLY trying not to let the small things get to me. It is a lot easier said than done.

When I woke up, I went to Dunkin’ Donuts to get coffee (brrrrr its still SO cold out), I got on my elliptical around 9 for forty five minutes and then did a quick vacuum and clean up around the house. It felt good to get things done. Did my husband offer to help with the cleaning? No. Was I annoyed? Yes. Did I drop it and leave it in the past? Yes! I chose joy.

After doing a handful of things I laid down for a short nap. It was only thirty minutes long, but it was refreshing. I’m going to try and keep going with getting things done. I’m not sure if my mood is taking an upward manic state or if I’m just doing well today. Whatever the case, I am going to enjoy it while it lasts.

What do you have planned for the weekend?
