I've been out in the garden since 5am.
My most favorite time to be in the garden.
I found myself rushing around the house this morning in order to get out there as soon as it was light enough to see -
But I was still eating breakfast and drinking my English Breakfast tea -
And then I had the crazy thought that the day was half over -
and it was 5:15am.
By 8am I am most certain that the day is half over, and I used to tell Aaron that when I home schooled him and he'd roll his eyes at me.
My Tuesday morning nugget of wisdom whilst digging out quack grass?
Being unhappy is a sickness of the spirit.

I'm not talking about being unhappy cause all the $1.99 sale chicken breasts are gone from the market.
I'm talking about the real, weigh you down kinda unhappy.
I believe, much like a pain in your body is telling you that something is wrong - a pain in your spirit (unhappiness) is telling you something is wrong.
And you know what?
Unhappiness takes energy.
So does making changes to become happy.
Either way, you expend energy, so why not expend the energy you need to make the changes you need to become happy?
In my weight loss journey (a frog's breath away from 40lbs down) I find it's taking a lot of energy, that ofttimes, I really don't want to spend.
I sometimes reeeealllllyyyy don't want to exercise.
I find that when I do, it's so much easier than scolding myself all day for not.
I find that the yoke of "I should have" is so much heavier, and requires so much more energy than "I did". I am so much more happy with 40lbs off of my frame than I was before. It's worth the effort, it's worth the short term pain, to enjoy long term results.
Expend the energy that's required to find your happy.
Whether it's losing weight, decluttering your house or something deeper -
You shan't regret it.
