Last night I threw myself a little pity party. Sometimes I need to get out of my own head, I think. I tend to overthink things and my mind was in overdrive last night. Why, I asked myself, am I spending Saturday night all alone? My mind quickly stepped in to answer me….. because nobody cares about you. I wallowed in that for a little bit and then decided I needed to get off that thought track before I started a nosedive into “negativity land”.
There are so many things I enjoy doing alone, and if I can’t be happy alone, I won’t be good company for anybody else.
I ended up working on some little watercolors, taking a bath and catching up on (almost all) the latest episodes of “And Just Like That”. It surely wasn’t the terrible tragedy I initially made it out to be.
This morning I started thinking of all the things I enjoy doing and made a mental list of them. I am beyond capable of finding fun things to do even when I am by myself. Here’s what I came up with:
- Play with my watercolors
- Watch an episode of a show I enjoy
- Read a book
- Work on a puzzle
- Feed the birds and squirrels
- Write a letter to a friend
- Work on my sweepstakes
- Write a blog post
- Take a nap
- Make cookies
- Do some laundry (not as fun 😉)
- Go shopping
- Play with my puppy
I have to remember my Dad’s favorite saying, “Life is What You Make It.” I will make today a better day! 😊
