I'm sitting at the computer drinking coffee, eating my breakfast and contemplating my day. Anything can happen today and that is an exciting prospect. Today could be like any other day - fast food for lunch, lots of computer and TV time, plans for exercise that never happens, excuses, and going to bed feeling defeated.....or
Today could include a trip to the grocery store for healthy food, lunch that is healthy and delicious, exercise, maybe a walk with the dog, doing some tasks around the house that I have wanted to do.....
Many things could happen today - some are completely out of my control, but some are things that are entirely up to me. If I watch "just one more episode" of my favorite show (which turns into 3) or I get out and walk the dog that is entirely up to me. If I go grocery shopping or sit around and watch daytime TV that is up to me. If I go to the gym instead of watching summer reruns that is up to me.
I go through these phases where I feel so helpless, like the whole world is against me. I'm trying to see in my world around me that there are many things under my control. So many thing in my life I can change if I just do it. I do have power, I am not a victim of circumstance. My life is my own.
