As I was trying to "come to" this morning (believe me it takes a good while to do that), I kept hearing the phrase "mind over matter". It SOUNDS so easy doesnt it? Just like "Just Do It!"...easy right? Uh no, not for me anyway.
Ive been told I tend to complicate things. I dont agree completely but if Im being honest with myself then I have to say it can be true at times. I tend to "over think" things and as much as I resist it when it starts...its part of who I am. So when you take something so uncomplicated as "Just Do It" its easier said than done.
This week has been a little stressful at work. In addition I had a scare with one of my kids last week, which led to running some blood work. I got a call from the Doc yesterday with results. He said all looks fine...except there is one that came back "borderline". He tells me there is no cause to worry but this issue should be rechecked in 3-6 months and oh by the way, dont tell them about these results as it could aggravate the issue (if the results were accurate). Im a Mom...worry is my middle name!!! I cant begin to tell you the areas of worry that I branched off into.
So...instead of lacing up my sneakers after work and heading to the park to walk, I came home...I overate ate dinner...I snacked after dinner....and so far this morning have not done great either.
I need to stop right now and just do what I need to do. In spite of all the stresses, concerns, worries, exhaustion...I need to put on my big girl panties and do what I need to do. I need to get my emotional/stress eating under control before more damage is done. I need to get to the park after work no matter how drained I am. I need to give it ALL to God and L E T G O! (again...easier said...).
Here's to a LET GO, LET GOD...JUST DO IT...MIND OVER MATTER kinda day!!!!
