I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.
My body image was atrocious. The distorted side of my brain does an excellent job of convincing me that I somehow put on fifty pounds over night. Getting dressed becomes an hour long event and getting through meals even more difficult than normal. I was crabby.
Today was also one of the most beautiful Indian Summer days I can remember. Sunny and 75 degrees on October 25th is a rare thing in Michigan. My mom came home at noon and wanted to jump in the kayaks, but I was perfectly content to stay in my sweat pants and be miserable all day. I often question why it's so much easier to stay down and in a bad mood than to go out and do something you enjoy. Doesn't make any sense...
After a two hour nap, I decided to get out my funk and live in the moment. The old Kelsi would have never even questioned my distorted brain and would still be been participating in my pity party. But something has obviously changed. I could not have asked for a better afternoon floating down the Mighty Chip with my lovely mother.
