I'm one of those people that think Guilt is a horrible emotion. If you did something you didn't like, then change it. Don't feel guilty about it. Either own it and let it be OK, Learn from it and move on, or Do something about it!
My Mom's words have been in my head since I was a teen to help me gauge this guilt factor..
She'd say, "If you think you will feel guilty after doing something, then don't do it" those words have been my moral compass ever since.
That's not to say I don't mess up, because Lord knows I do. But if I don't learn from my mess ups, then shame on me!
Each day there are little things that I think I could do better!
So I thought it would be fun to document my not so good decisions and force myself to think about them, to make a change. This new series of posts is called 12 Days of Changes.
For the next 12 Days, I'm going to pick one thing from the day before that I want to change.
That's not to say that these changes will last forever, but if I change even ONE day, then I have learned something from the day before. So I'm going to try it and see what I learn at the end of 12 days!
Today I had two frozen coffee drinks which is very rare for me. My taste and tired buds were pounding at me and my car was near a Starbucks twice, so I did it!
But then reality struck and I thought, I spent $8 on Coffee today when I have a Vitamix at home! HELLO!!! I used Two Plastic Cups and Two plastic straws when I have GLASS at home!!! Not to mention two doses of caffeine, sugar crash and caffeine jitters.
Instead of getting mad at myself for a poor choice, I'm just going to change it!
12 Days of Changes DAY 1
Tomorrow, my 1st day of Change will be NO COFFEE!
Sorry frozen goodness, but I must say good bye for now!
If you were to make a change from today, what would it be?
