courage to make a change

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Good Morning; I got myself depressed over this possible change in a job with my DH.
Yesterday I got out of my pity party, I started saying the serenity prayer and then I exercised in short spurts 3x. My son had designed a exercise program for me which was working but it got interrupted with all the chaos in my life from DS surgery and recovery, MIL problems and then my DD and her pregnancy problems. I just said my life has rarely been a tranquil life. This has always been my dream. But what I came to realized once again, I am a strong person. I can rely on myself and succeed. It is when I work with family members or others is where I do not succeed. I have learned I can not control them so I have to let them go. I have to do the same with this situation also. My DH gets stressed as he was yesterday but I can not take on his anxiety. It will take me down too. emoticon emoticonFor Today I will once again rely on my higher power for serenity and maintain my exercise program during this trying time. I do much better when I track my food and exercise. emoticon emoticon this blog is important where I can express myself in a safe place. Thank you very much. Every one needs support! Have a good day! emoticon emoticonPeace my friends!

    Taking care of ourselves during stressful times seems to always go on the back burner. Glad to hear that you are taking steps to move forward and take care of yourself. emoticon emoticon

    Oh, sweetie, I completely understand. Not handling stress in one way or another totally makes every facet of our life spiral out of control. I have the Serenity Prayer on a card I always carry with me! It focuses me.

    The most important take-away I have from your wonderful blog is that we only have control of ourselves. That is a hard one sometimes to remember.

    Blessings to you. It IS hard when you feel change coming, but don't know what it is, where it will take you. But I am glad you blogged. That always makes me feel better too. There is support out there when you reach for it like blogging.

    Life throws us curveballs, manytimes it seems one right after another, but we have to be prepared to intercept those & work around them as best as we can with each situation. Don't try to do this alone, we all tend our network of team support & friends, you can do this with God first & the amazing support you get from those around you. Good job in breaking up your exercise, sometimes the smaller spurts is all it takes to help us get back on track, you can do this!
