One thing I have learned from taking my icy sea dips each winter morning is that not judging something and just getting it done is the best way to make it through tough situations.
- I’ve also learned that talking positively and being your own best friend really helps you conquer things and get through them when you probably couldn’t if you were judging whether you wanted to do it or not.
I’ve also begun speaking to myself and out loud in this confident country character voice I use on stage, and it really helps to boost my mood. The HVAC rep at the local business told me about this type of speaking to yourself when she was trying to do tough ductwork jobs for commercial clients. I’ve been trying to do it more and more and it really helps get me out of low moods when I get in them. I think I am going to go to the heating supplier later today to see if they have any furnace filters, as mine is getting pretty old and worn out and will need to be replaced soon. I think they have a sale on everything in the store right now as they are trying to make way for the new inventory. I will also take a look at the central a/c and heating systems to see how much they cost with the sale price. Maybe if the price is right I could buy one and pay it off over the next few years if they have a layaway plan or some kind of financing.
