I have been finding mornings tough over the past few weeks, especially Mondays. After having such a good weekend it’s hard to get back to the grind. I’ve been troubled by anxiety and diarrhea in the mornings too. However, this morning I didn’t feel so low. When my alarm went off I had a spring in my step. I wonder if this is because last evening I gave this morning some thought and wanted to go ahead with a more positive mental attitude. Thinking and doing don’t always equate, but somehow today it worked. Munchie and I were ahead of time, a miracle in the morning! I dropped her off, called granny, went to Pilates and then bought a copy of the New York Times and sat in a local coffee shop with a pain au chocolat and a latte, bliss. The weather has vastly improved and so with it my mood. Yesterday was lovely and warm, we even caught the sun a little. I’m sure it won’t be long before we are house bound because of the heat! I love seeing all the spring flowers and my neighbours have inspired me to get gardening, something very therapeutic I can imagine. I know lots of people take solace in it. I like getting my hands dirty and it’s something Munchie and I can do together. I’m going to try my hand at some veggies, so watch this space!
