So since Friday of last week my free time is now nil. I have been trying to juggle work, the dance group I volunteer for and now the parade committee that I also volunteer for. But you know what? I say bring it on. I live for this. I can keep juggling as long as I don't have someone stressing me out with stupidity. I feel more alive, more in control and to top it off, I make sure that I make time for everyone, even if its a few minutes a day. This is why dinner is such an important meal in my house.
The good thing is that the two groups that I volunteer for my husband and kids also are a part of so in a way I am still spending time with them, interacting with them on some level. Its funny, I have noticed that since I have returned full time to logging in to Spark People that I have a much better attitude. I don't sweat the small stuff, I just let it breeze over me. I haven't really gotten in a bad mood either lately (especially when I really had a reason to this weekend...) I do still get annoyed at people, but that is because sometimes they are just inconsiderate.
Like I said most of this I attribute to eating healthier and being more conscious about my physical activity. I feel better after I walk around or do my weekly zumba, I am still trying to work myself up to practicing alongside my dance team but that has to do more with being self-conscious than not wanting to dance... but all in all I feel much happier, more at peace with myself and more optimistic about my life (even when it feels like the world is crumbling down.) I know there are more opportunities in life, we just need to learn how to spot them!
With Love, the future me!
