Blue Monday

Apparently today is Blue Monday. It's the third Monday of January and it is on this day that everyone feels a bit depressed. Whether it's the darker days, the weather, the diet or pay day being a long way off, apparently Blue Monday is a thing and people are feeling it all over the world.

I choose to be a fairly optimistic person. Sometimes things happen that, of course, derail my positivity train but it's only for a short while. I always look for the good in whatever happens in life even if it doesn't appear so clearly initially. And I chose to be positive on Blue Monday.

It was a great day. Work went well, the kids were happy with where they'll be going for after school for the next few months and we managed to sort out after school for the kids. Husband had to take a half day from work, which isn't ideal when the business relies on you being there but I can't take time off my work yet as I haven't accrued any annual leave. It's a juggling act being working parents. Bless my Mum, she has text every day to make sure we got something sorted. I know she'd help us out if she were nearer.

It's going to be a better week. Last week was so stressful but I'm putting it behind me and looking forward to a night out on Friday with my new team and celebrating Husband's birthday as a family on Saturday. I intend to keep looking for the good in everything because when I do, I feel better for it.

I've also been more conscious about what I'm eating. I don't want or need to lose weight but I do want to be healthier and to watch things like portion sizes and how much bad stuff I'm putting into my body. For dinner, we had homemade chicken curry with pitta breads. I had a small portion with one pitta bread and plenty of water.

2017 is going to be a year of healthy body and healthy mind.
