The day started slow, woke up with bad cough, headache. Had two cups of coffee in first 30 mins, lazed around, stretched the body to make some rasam/potato roast for lunch, cleaned kitchen, washed dishes, in the process lost my cool and yelled at kids (I don’t remember the last time I raised my tone to them. It just has to be today!!). This is first half of the day!
Sat down in couch, caught up with messages in phone and then I came to my senses. I reminded myself of the theme of this year “be conscious of the choices I make, I and only I own the consequences of my action that come out of my choice!”
Got up from couch, walked in treadmill for 40 mins, apologized to Adi for my morning drama, took nice hot shower, made few phone calls and ate my dinner. Following me, the clan was motivated to move some muscles. We all spent the next one hour together doing some physical exercises. If I remember right, the last time we spent time together in exercise room was in 2019. Now, everyone is back to their business and I am onto mine that’s drafting this post 🙂 This is second half of the day!
Well, second half could have easily flipped into a boring rest of the day if I chose to stay put in couch , carry forward my mood swings and binge watch something! The clan would have followed the same! Today is another day to realize the direct impact of my mood on the family! All is well that ends well!
This is my 10th year of blogathon and I am super happy to reconnect with you all. We will talk more in following days!
Wishing you all a very happy and healthy year 2022. May this new year bring good health and happiness to you and your family. Stay blessed!
Glad that the day ended well Ani, can’t agree more with the fact that our mood has a big impact on everyone around us !
yup and that adds more pressure on us sigh!!!
Glad that you all had a better day later.
But Ani, I don’t understand this thing. How and why our mood effects the emotions of entire clan. This is such a big burden. I thought this happens only with me. Surprised to knw that we r all sailing in the same boat.
I know, such a big burden! we can’t even stay mad in peace. This mommy job has such a high bar of expectation!!!
You nailed it “Staying mad in peace” 😅
Mood swings.. tell me about it! 😬Happy happy new year 🎊
he hee.. Happy New Year to you an family!
I love the theme of the year that you have chosen. It’s so important to remember that we own our reaction and can choose it consciously. It’s amazing how the day turned around with that thought, not only for you but those around you.
yeah totally, another theme I am thinking of is “just do it” 🙂
