My children tease me and have made that my theme song. And I have to admit it is true.
When I get something in my mind that I want I go for it. New gadget, book, music, food I set out to figure out how quickly I can obtain it. Yes I am somewhat compulsive. HOWEVER this does not work well with weight loss. NO KIDDING!!
Intellectually I know:
a) that this is a journey
b) it does not happen overnight
c) it will take work
d) you have to work at it daily
e) it is not easy
f) involves mental work
g) can be frustrating
etc etc etc
Emotionally I am not always able to deal with the above. OK the real truth is I don't WANT to deal with the above.
I WANT IT ALL AND I WANT IT NOW!
So in my moments of Zen I relax and work at being mindful. Asking God to grant me serenity and patience. Focus on the journey and quit looking for a quick fix.
On a professional note: I have been really really stressed at my job for the last month. The nature of what I do stress will always be around HOWEVER I do not have to have a tea party with my stressors. Yesterday on the Daily Challenge (Love that site) the stress tract assignment was about letting go of multitasking. One of my friends posted the message below and it will be my thing to read in addition to my daily prayer and meditation before I start my day...enjoy
Today is a new day! You start each morning with a full fuel tank of energy. That is with more physical & mental energy than the day & night before. Take note that as the day passes, "negatives will slowly drain" your tank. So you have to remember to start filling with positives first thing. You must keep doing things that self-boost YOU all through out the day into the night such as prayer, medita...tion, exercise, good eating, music, planning & doing fun things that make YOU feel good. Not just once! Sporadically all day & as much as you can. Otherwise, you might run out of physical & mental fuel! If you feel drained, stop & take 5 min or more to refuel the body & mind! And fuel before hand so you are ahead.
Make it a great day my friends!
