What do I stand for?

Thursday, September 28, 2006

"Stand for something or fall for anything!"

My purpose, up to thispoint, has always been my family. I worked for money to keep them, Cooked to feed them, and only played to their rules. Now I have my own purpose! I am working towrd getting myself healthy! This I do first for God, second for me and thrid for my family. It makes me feel strong and powerful to see my progress and allows me to feel proud of me! The true bottom line purpose for me at this time is to get healthly, thus bringin g on weight loss which will lead to better feelings about myself and in doing so will bring me under his will every more.

i still need to work on my habitual use of the lords name in vain, but I am making progress. I need to work on my desperate desire for salty, fattycrunchy foods. But I am learning to like raw vegetables with a nice fat free dip as a replacement.

Speaking up and asking questions

Monday, September 25, 2006

"Do not be afraid to ask dumb questions. They are easier to handle than dumb mistakes - Unknown"

This is so much easier said than done! I understand the message about being better to ask than to get in trouble and have to work harder because you did not ask. But fear can stop a mighty train! I think it is not the fear of asking the question that stops me and most other people it is the fear that we are asking questions that we feel are not valid or may not be articulated correctly. I have trouble with this and sometimes I even ask a friend to either ask the question for me or to help me think of the way to ask it myself. Admiting I have this problem makes it at least fixable.

Learning from our traveled path

"Who I am really keeps surprising me. - Nikki Giovanni"

If some one asked me today who I wanted to be when I grow up I would have to say - ME. When I was a child it was all about jobs and making money, but now that I am older it is about happiness, family, love, and most of all GOD. I would change some things about me and am actualy int he process of change daily, but over all I would just be me. Every time I look in the glass I see potential! I would not change that ever!

Revenge? or Rework?

Monday, September 25, 2006

"It is often better not to see and insult than to avenge it. - Lucius Annaeus Seneca"

I have not truely learned yet to deal with hurt from people very well. I struggle with it daily. this problem is not only with strangers but with family and friends as well. It is true what the article said about our hearts holding on to hurt with a tight grip! I pray every day that the Lord Almighty shows me how to grow from hurt and insult rather than to regress into humanity! Revenge or Rework?

Revenge = Payback
Rework = Amendment

Is it better to pay back in kind or to work hard to make the adjustments needed to truely amend the situation? I will continue to work towards always taking the reqork road!

  


Taking the more difficult road

Friday, September 22, 2006

"There are no shortcuts to any place worth going."
This is a leasson I have been trying to teach my 12-yr old son his entire life! However, he has the excuss of being a child, what is my excuss? I am always looking for easier ways to get to my goal, and yes by using the work other peol;e have already done to help me get to the goal faster and with more recognition. I will admit it I am that way! I have to look at myself and evaluate my own grouds before I can truely rais my son up to know that he has to work for success to have it mean any thing. I am a creative person and I know I use that creativity in the wrong directions at times, so I am vowing today to help my son and myself see just what we should be doing and not just the easiest way to the finish line. With Gods help we both will make the small changes that lead to large, life altering, positive, leaps and bounds.
