My Feel Good Journal – Day 8

I'd rather say no thank you - http://www, Thriving AFTER Depression

I’d rather  – say no thank you to an invite – than be pissed off at myself for saying yes

Part of asking for exactly what I want (like mentioned yesterday) is also knowing exactly what I DON’T want.

I’m a recovering “people-pleaser”.  I’ve had this warped view – heaven forbid I let someone down – the earth is going to swallow me whole!

The BIGGER thing here is that by ONLY focusing on “saying Yes” to others… I end up saying “No” to myself.

My best line in these situations:  “Let me check my schedule and I’ll get back to you at XXX time”.

Can you relate?  Let me know – leave a comment below 🙂

Here are my 4-G’s for Day 8:

What are “The 4-G’s of Feeling Good”? – find out HERE.

Goin’: Spent an hour walking today!  Soc and I walked around “Turtle Cove” and I finally got a picture of ’em!  And the  clouds were awesome today!

Greens:  Green Smoothie & stir-fry veggies at dinner 🙂  and a snack of snow peas with garlic hummus – yum 🙂 <– a good replacement for chips and dip.

Smoothie ingredients:  spinach (frozen), broccoli florets, mango, blueberries (last of ’em), goji berries, chia seeds, flax seed, maca powder and plant-based protein powder.

I “was” going to try the collard greens today – but – Soc (the dog) ripped ’em to bits! Here’s Orv (Orville) observing the collard greens massacre on the left.  And my stir-fry veggie dinner – little bit o’ canola oil and lots of spices (teeny bit of salt).

 Givin’Today I gave out smiles – even to the cars that seemed to want to run me off the road while I was walking…lol.

To myself:  I allowed myself to be flexible with my “to-do” list today.  The weather was BEAUTIFUL so I did work that I could do outside (me-laptop-and sunshine!).  Tomorrow it’ll be raining and I’ll be working inside.


I am grateful for the gigantic white puffy clouds floating in a blue sky that I got to enjoy today.

I am grateful for my body slimming down as I eat good, nutritious food.

I am grateful for a good hair day 😉

Making “Feeling Good” choices like these all started with doing the “4-G’s”! I’d love it if you joined me in doing the “4-G’s” – grab your free copy of my book that explains it all “Get Back on the Feel Good Train: 4 Simple Strategies for Getting You Back on Track” HERE. and there’s a printable journal sheet too!

I’d love to hear your 4-G’s…. share ’em below…
