Last night I called my Mom..well I called her at 6:38am her time.
there might be some resemblance
Ha ha ha. ok..I shouldn’t be so evil with my ways. She answered the phone and sounded super sick. Why? Cause she was recovering from being at his concert with my sister.
I was chatting to her last night, especially about how crap I felt yesterday and how frustrating it is to feel sick. How nervous I am to start with my new job, but how EXCITED I am with starting nursing school etc.
She sat and listened and goes ‘Michelle, you’ve been stuck in mud for the past year’.
paying homage to my country background
I have been stuck in mud..that is the phrase that has summed up a bit of my life for the past year..frankly.
So I sat there, got a bit teary and said to her ‘Well, consider me on the pavement ready to fly my mud everywhere’.
My mom goes ‘Honey, lay the pedal to the metal. You’re in the drivers seat.’
God I love my mom.
How do you get from ‘Stuck in the Mud’ to ‘Pedal to the Metal’
- admit where you are
- When in doubt, just take the next small step. Ali wrote this as her mantra and it hit me.
- Be gentle with yourself
- Acknowledge how much you have done/are doing Thanks Caitlin for her awesome post this morning on celebrating successes
- Write out mini-goals Daily, monthly, six monthly, yearly: Simple, attainable
Here’s to mud…
