Good news I guess.

Thursday, December 02, 2010

The blood tests came back good so I'm glad I didn't give it too much thought yesterday. My original issue is still ongoing but I am hopeful it will be resolved. DH and I had some home made Chicken Noodle soup tonight. It was pretty good for this cold day.

We are going through some tough stuff....trying to decide what to try and sell....whether we should cash out the 401k. I got another rejection today. It is so frustrating not even getting an interview. I'm at a loss of what to do and our situation is starting to get tough. It's so hard not to feel worthless. I try to keep a positive attitude but sometimes it's unbearable. I hope this ends soon.

    I agree with all your other friends have said. I wish I could do more than just send you some good words and good thoughts!

Just reading your blogs tells me you have a lot to offer and someone will recognize that or you will see an opportunity and take advantage of it!

Take care my friend and stay the course even when it gets tough!

    Oh, how I understand your feelings! It is under-reported just how many of us are suffering in this tough job market. Try to hang in there as best as possible. It's hard not to define our worth by our jobs, but we are so much more than our titles and earnings. Have a good day.

    You are not worthless--even though the job market says so--but it's saying that for millions of people. You are not alone--everyone is struggling. I don't know how we're going to just pay our day to day bills--we have no 401K to rely on--farmers never put anything away!
Bright side: we have each other!

Blessed Blood

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

You guys are too good to me. I cried tears of joy as I read your comments today. I am SO BLESSED.

I had yet another blood test today. This one was kinda weird. They started an IV in my hand which isn't a small feat as my veins are a little hard to find....so I got poked ALOT. ... Not fun! Then I had to sit in a dark room for 30 minutes to "relax" before they took my blood. Of course the nurse then told me that if my levels are still high it could mean I have a tumor on my pituitary(no..I don't know how to spell it.)gland. I was like...."Back the truck up!" Nobody told me this before. I already had one test for cancer and it was negative and now a lab tech is telling me I may have a TUMOR! What next I say!!

I refuse to worry about it. It isn't in my control so I'm not going to borrow trouble. What I can do is get off my behind and workout this afternoon. And then I might string some lights on my deck! Talk to you later!

    I like that approach of not borrowing trouble. It's hard to ignore but you are exactly right - until the results are in and you know what you're dealing with there is nothing you can do but continue your quest for improved health!!

I agree with minidriver - the nurse had no business saying that - it could probably mean a lot of things including nothing at all to worry about!

Hang in there your lady - you're doing great!

That was a pretty irresponsible thing to say casually like that! A lab tech has absolutely no business making a comment like that.

You're very right to put it out of your mind and not worry. Focus on today and making those good choices!

One boring blog!

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

This is going to make you laugh.......but it's true......I HAVE NO WORDS!

Hard to believe I know. I have written at least four blogs and I've deleted them or my computer froze up and I didn't have the heart to recreate them.

So much has been going on and I have just been ignoring this site. I don't know why....it should be the most important thing for me right now. But all the struggles with job hunting and some health issues I am dealing with right now.....I just can't focus.

I'm gonna try and be better...I've read some of your blogs and they are excellent. So I am going to keep enjoying your inspiration for now and I hope to be back at full steam soon!

Take care and Happy Holidays,

Hugs,

Keri

    Keri, Just take a look at how many respond to your blogs. I'm lucky to get 4 but you get lots - tells you how many people love to read your blogs and really care about you! Even if you think it's a boring blog - I don't!

You take of yourself and I know you are. You ARE dealing with a lot and you shouldn't try to downplay it. I know this is easy to say and I often get caught up in the maelstrom of life BUT if you can make your thought process one of "Focus on the solution not the problem" it will help. At least it helps me.

Maybe you are already doing that but I had to say something to earn my keep.

    Sometimes it is needed to take a step back and observe. I, for one, am glad that you are still here. Perhaps you can use the site and your blog to help you focus. This month I am working on being mindful and staying on track with my fitness, as it is so easy to get distracted from what I NEED to do with all the festivities.
Keep Sparkling!

Choose...either way...the choice is yours.

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

I don't know if you have ever heard this before, but even if you have, it's a good reminder.

Free will is an interesting thing. It gives us all the power....the power to do right and wrong.....good and bad.....healthy or not. And part of that power is the power to choose. And choose we do......

No matter what it is....we have the choice....and you do choose...whether you take responsibility or not. You can say that you were at a buffet and there was nothing to do but eat 5 plates of food....but really...you made the choice. You always have the power.....you control your destiny.

I know I have been making all the wrong choices lately. And I can give you a million of excuses......and I know if you heard them....it would sound like deja vu....come on .....be honest with yourself. But truly, if you are faced with a buffet....it's your choice on how to fill your plate......what to put on it....how much to put on it. Now I haven't been to a buffet lately....so don't go thinking I splurged on something.

My eating hasn't really been out of control lately and I have been cooking more with real foods. However, I am still not being good. I'm still making bad choices....and yes....they were my choices....I had power over them.....I knew they were wrong....yet I went ahead anyway.

I told myself every day this week that I was going to exercise today....and I didn't. I sat on my but most of the day. I did clean toilets and made a beef stew for supper(yesssss....I washed my hands ;-)

Why did I do the wrong thing......why did I make the wrong choice? I can tell you I have been depressed lately and am getting pretty good at feeling sorry for myself. I could tell you all sorts of sad stories and even though you have some too....I'm focused on my own. But honestly....it's just an excuse.....I chose wrong.

I DID! I DID IT! I chose....I was in control....and chose to fail myself. I'm not proud of it and I really want to focus on turning this around. I'm not sure how I'm going to do....but I'll work it out.

I WANT to change.....I WANT to make better choices....no excuses.....just me and my health.....me and my power.......me and my self esteem. I'm in it to win it....no.....I'm in it to have a choice.......I need to keep my power to choose.....and I can only do this if I'm healthy........

Hugs,

Keri-

    Keri - your blogs are always so inspirational and practical. I love the way you put thought into your blogs.

Thank you for the reminder on choosing. We can choose to be focused on good or bad - food choices, friend choices, etc. etc.

Great job and it's great to hear from you!!

Sorry it took so long to get to your blog!!

    You are so right my friend. We do have the power. Sometimes we choose to forget about it. I have chosen to get things moving by doing 1 small step each day until that small step feels natural. I am trying to drink my 3 bottles of water daily. I don't always choose well but it is growing. Maybe try 1 step for a while, something you manage. Give yourself a chance to succeed. You can do this. Yes you can.

    Keri you have such wonderful insight. I just purchased a bracelet on Monday from JCP (think Kolh's has it too) that has this written on it,

"Dreams become reality one choice at a time."

I wear it to remind me that IT IS my choice. I choose the good or the bad. It is about what I truly want.
