Here's to a LET GO, LET GOD...JUST DO IT...MIND OVER MATTER kinda day!!!!

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

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!!!!

    Hey sweetness~ *hugs* Sure hope that baby of yours is all right. Since I'm not a mother, I don't know how mothers get through life without worry. I'm an auntie and I agonize over my li'l Babes. Yet, we must know that the Good Lord has us all in His care, so at some point we must learn to let go and trust that He does know what He is doing. So good to see you learning to let go~ the freedom that comes with that trust is precious. Keep up your end in doing what you can do and let Father take the rest. Love ya, gal~ *hugs* BB~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love the phrase "Let Go and Let God". I don't know if I told you before, but I attend alanon meetings - which is a group for families and friends of alcoholics. Both my parents were alcoholics. Let Go and Let God is something that we say quite often in those meetings because sometimes (often) children of alcoholics (and many others too), are control freaks. I know I am. Too often I want life to happen the way I want it to happen, when I want it to happen. My usual pattern is to fight, fight, and fight. And when I run out of energy, I let it all go to God. It's amazing how it all works out. In fact, I have a God box. I put requests in there that I couldn't figure out on my own - requests for my children, a NEED to quit smoking, etc. Over time (and sometimes it took longer than I wanted) all of my requests were answered. I suggest you make yourself a God box (use whatever you want; it doesn't matter) and place all your worries in there - your kids, your weight, your lack of motivation - all of it. And hide it away somewhere. Then just go about your day. I will put you in my God box too! Love you girl!

    It's true... although worrying is a natural human reaction, at some point, you've got to realize that you've done everything you can on your end, and the rest is His business. Let Him do His job so you can take care of yourself! I don't think the Almighty wants us to worry ourselves into sickness, disease and disrepair. It's simply not His best for us.

    Although our bodies are temporary and our souls are eternal, our soul still has to occupy that body as long as it's here on this Earth (our bodies are temples, remember? I Corinthians 6:19-20) - and think about how Ha'Shem will rejoice when you can get your WHOLE SELF - mind, spirit, AND body - into a healthy, happy place!
