The tickets came in the post today. Excited! :D
We went to see X-Men: the last stand yesterday. Umm. Yeah. Well, I suppose it was what I expected it to be. Entertaining in parts. It was more Stu’s choice (obviously) and he did assure me that he would help to explain things if it was too complicated for me to understand. :P One thing I didn’t get was that whole business with moving the bridge. Couldn’t they have taken, I dunno, a boat or something. :| Seemed a bit like too much hassle to me. And what was that hedgehog mutant power about… Like yeah, he’s real handy in battle just as long people go and give him hugs… But anyways, yesterday was some promotional 5 euro day in the cinema so I’m not complaining; I suppose it was worth that. :D
Worst: Vinnie Jones. ‘Don’t you know who I am? I’m the juggernaut, bitch!’ :|
Best: Frasier in a furry blue suit kicking ass.
And on a completely different note, here’s some confidence boosting thoughts for the weekend:
Don’t be affected by what others think about you.
If you wallow I the admiration of others on a good day, then you will feel bereft without it on a bad day. We all enjoy compliments and positive feedback, but your intrinsic self-worth can never be allowed to be affected by the opinion of others.
Take the first step to a short-term goal.
Action is a brilliant motivator and it gives you all the confidence you need to take the next few steps forward.
Listen to the excuses you make.
Come to recognize the strategies you use to stop yourself going for your goals. And then stop making those excuses.
Do one scary thing every day.
Practice facing up to your fears by doing something that feels slightly risky. Speak to that interesting new person at work, get your hair cut in a new way, book a snowboarding holiday.
