Why?

Why is my alarm ringing? It can’t be morning already! Why didn’t I go to sleep earlier last night? I knew I had to get up early today! Why is it so cold? Why didn’t I put the heating on timer last night? WHY OH WHY?

Oh my gosh! Why do I look so old? Why are my eyes so puffy today? I didn’t think my dark circles could get any darker but they definitely are this morning! Why didn’t I remember to put on my eye cream last night? Why is my makeup not doing its job properly? I need to wipe it off and start again! Why did I have that extra piece of cake late last night? Now my stomach will be bloated all day! Why does 1 slice of naughtiness make me look pregnant? WHY OH WHY?

Why is it raining again? Why did I waste my time bothering to wash my hair? The rain will only turn it into a fizzy mess within minutes of contact with the dampness. Why do I have such hard to handle hair? Other woman always look so prim and proper without a strand out of place! WHY OH WHY?

Why do I feel so down? Why is nothing going my way? Why does it always happen to me? WHY OH WHY?

How do I shake off this negativity? How do I make my day better?

I know… Let’s rewind and start again!

See the source image<<<<<<<<<<….ย  See the source image

“My alarm is ringing. It’s so cold I must have forgot to put the heating on timer last night. I also forgot to apply my eye cream, my eyes are so puffy, I better take extra care getting my makeup right. I’m feeling a little bloated, must be because of that extra slice of cake for dessert. I’ll swap my outfit for something more flattering. It’s raining! I’ve already washed my hair, I better style it up so the fizz won’t be so obvious.”

See the difference? The rewound morning was so much better and didn’t bring me down. Instead of moaning, I just adjusted to all the things that previously went wrong.

In real life, we don’t have a rewind button! (IF ONLY!)ย 

We have to control our thoughts and mood before they ruin our day.

We can start by removing the ‘Why’s‘ and just dealing with the situation.

There’s no need for the questions, it’s happened! Don’t dwell on it! It’s all about what you do next.

Try it and see how life changes…

    Absolutely right Hun, inside every negative thought there is a positive one waiting to be discovered , it’s just a matter of shifting our focus from it.

    Not always easy but it can be done ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜

    Excellent points. Asking why is valid even when we don’t anticipate valid answers. No doubt we must strive to make right choices and move on even when we discover the choice wasn’t the correct one. I guess it’s a perspective as well.

    This is a great idea! I did something similar not long ago, where I wrote the opposite of what was currently annoying me. Just to spin into the other direction! Right? Because it can get overwhelming at times….
