Gut Check

Praying this morning, I got to thinking about complaining. I complain a lot. I wasn’t always like this, but recently I think I have gotten a lot worse. I made a point this morning to try not to complain. Then I forgot about that plan.

I went for a run on the treadmill while the baby took her morning nap. It wasn’t my best run and I didn’t particularly enjoy it. I sent my husband a text complaining about the run. Then I noticed an alert from my runkeeper app. I checked it, and right after my run had posted, my husband had commented “good job.”

Wow. What a gut check for me! i did a good job. He is proud of me. I should be proud of me. Because I did SOMETHING. Even though I’m still adjusting to the treadmill, and even if my treadmill runs are never as good as my outside runs, I still did something. And that is nothing to complain about.

So here’s to starting over with today’s pledge not to complain. It’s a beautiful day. It’s 10:30 and I’ve already worked out. We are having icecream at church tonight! It’s time to be positive.

About anestinthemaking

Hi! I'm Kristi! I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend. I'm a newbie to sewing and blogging, but I'm excited to get started! Sewing is the first hobby I've really had in a long time. In high school, I sang, I played the piano, I played in the band, I wrote in journals. I went off to college, got married, started a family, and lived a life without hobbies. How boring?! Then I started reading blogs. One thing led to another and soon I was at my co-worker's house borrowing her sewing machine! I haven't looked back since! Sewing is a release for me. It's so much fun to create beautiful and useful things. It's fun to be learning something new, and it's fun to share it with you! So welcome! Take a look around, and let me know you're here! I love to meet people and respond to every message I get! And I can't wait to meet you!
