We all have things we don't like and things we do. Here are some of my thoughts about what I don't like and the positive side of what I do like. Maybe you can relate.
I don't like the way I look
, but I do like the goal weight picture I keep in my mind
and realize that goal can be achieved, despite setbacks, if I work diligently, day by day, inch by inch, pound by pound to get there.
I don't like that I sometimes overindulge as with the last two days, but I do like that new beginnings are unlimited and may start at any time which I will do every time I backslide.
I don't like that there is so much housework and yardwork that needs to be done, but I like the feeling I get when I have totally cleaned a room of the house or have raked several bags of leaves knowing I am making progress.
I don't like being alone, but I do like knowing that if there is a special someone meant for me to meet that it will be so and if not that I am comfortable living life anyway.
I don't like being in everyday pain from back problems, but I do like being able to still get around on my own without a walker or wheelchair although some days are more difficult than others and that I can still work out, within limits.
I don't like that money often seems in short supply, but I do like knowing that when unexpected repairs or other bills pop up that there always seems a way to pay for them.
I don't like that my normal positive attitude sometimes isn't
, but I do like knowing that those down times don't last and that I have friends I can call to talk to and your blogs and posts to read to perk me back up
I don't like the times when the words don't work and I don't make progress on my book
, but I do like how far I've come with it and how writer's block doesn't last
I don't like that I procrastinate, but I do like that it is a habit that can be broken, one task at a time.
I don't like that I will probably never meet all of my SP and Facebook friends in person
, but I do like those I have met and the new friends I have made knowing that meeting more of you may happen in the future
I don't like the frequent feeling that my life is empty, but I do like believing there is something important for me to do waiting for me and that I can pray for it to be a mighty mountain of challenge as I keep my eyes open for opportunities to serve others.
I don't like that I need to keep this short, but I do like being able to share more thoughts another time.
Be well. Let peace fill your hearts.
