Oh, the power of positive thinking”¦ it can do wonders for a crappy situation (pun intended).
Now that I’m feeling better, I realize just how important positive thinking was for getting me through the worst of my Colitis flare. I really tried to keep an optimistic outlook despite how terrible things got.
If I allowed my negative feelings to influence my thinking about the situation, I know I would have ended up reacting negatively to them”” you know, laying in bed crying like I did the other day. Instead of being poopy pants about it (again, pun intended), I decided that I wanted to feel as upbeat as possible (aka “fake it until you make it”). Being positive and (mostly) upbeat on the blog also helped triggered those feelings.
With that said, today is going to be a good day!
Check out my breakfast this morning! A bit more colorful, huh? I made a fried egg, a piece of gluten-free toast with sunflower butter and banana slices, and then poured myself some Naked juice mixed with some water over ice. Delicious! I felt so good eating it”” like eating each bite made me a little bit healthier and stronger.
I’m taking a yoga class later this morning and then I’m visiting a special bakery with gluten-free goodies for a Cookie Friday treat!
Today is going to be a good day!
