May Day Another New Beginning


Saturday, May 01, 2010

Just recently and from three sources I admire, I heard the same message: IT IS OK TO REGROUP FROM TIME TO TIME.

WHAT A CONCEPT AND DID IT BRING ON MY TEARS...YES IT DID!

My old reactions to life being too much for the moment or me overbooking myself beyond my capacity or me wanting to help so many people and situations when I realistically can not...just sends me into a funk, hide out mode or punishment of myself.

AND GUESS WHAT...YOU ALREADY KNOW? YOU KNOW HOW I PUNISH ME, RIGHT?

So having been told that by those three sources, was a gift. I took that gift and decided that May Day will be a celebration today and as I turn of the May pole I will be take the actions to regroup and take it easy as I do it.

Again, imagine that...taking it easy when I have done less than I projected....a new concept too!

I learned this: Regrouping for me means 1) spending some time alone to think and figure out what will tweak my needs. 2) asking for help in safe places and with safe people and 3) doing the next right thing right now instead of focusing on the past I can not change.

So I am back to remembering the daily basics: eat right, exercise as much as I can and with passion and think positive.

It does not take "rocket science" or a paid by the hour types of situation to remember this basic mantra about fitness...you SPARK folks keep telling me over and over and over again...THE THINGS I CAN DO EACH DAY TO IMPROVE MY HEALTH, IMPROVE MY HEAD AND HEART AND IMPROVE MY INTEGRITY CARD I CARRY.....AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR EXAMPLE.

And for those folks who gave me this "tried and true" insight about regrouping....your truth is setting me free today and I sure do need that!

    Thanks for your words. I am have recently regrouped myself but I have not taken it inward and upon reading this I think that may be what is keeping me from being consistent with how I take care of myself. It is so easy to say "I need to do this, this , & this" and then I can reach my goals. It has worked for me to a certain extent but I seem to only get so far. Thanks for giving me a new perspective.

By the way- you look fabulous! I know you are doing something right.

    Hope you May Day was great.

The best things I have learned in Spark People, and I repeat them as often as I can find anyone who will listen, are change one thing at a time, take it one day at a time, and love yourself all of the time!

Keep on keepin' on!
