I wanted to stay in the house and not go anywhere today.
I took my son to the doctor instead.
I wanted to go straight home and put my pajamas on.
I took my daughter to meet up with her great grandpa instead.
I didn’t want to deal with extra people.
I let my son’s friend come over instead.
I wanted to take a nap and sleep my stress away.
I took my daughter out to play in the snow instead.
I wanted to order pizza tonight because I didn’t feel like cooking.
I cooked soup and made grilled cheese instead.
I wanted to curl up under a blanket and avoid the snow outside.
I cleaned off my truck and went to pick up my son’s medicine instead.
I wanted to put my kids to bed early, so I could relax.
I let them stay up to spend a little more time with us instead.
Today was a day of pushing myself, even though I didn’t want to. Today was a day where my shoulds out weighed my wants. Today was a good day.
I do not push myself everyday. Often times, my wants outweigh my shoulds. It is not always a good day.
