I am sooo dizzy from going in circles

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Around an around I go.
One day I feel like I have everything working with me the next I feel like it is working against me. I know I can't control how other people react but it is getting annoying when I have to check my responses to there over reactions.
I am one person with a lot of patience but even my patience have an end.
I can only do so much in a day just like everyone else. Now I am being asked to stop worrying about me and get a grip on everyone and everything else in my life.
I don't want to!!!! I don't want to have to try to manipulate a situation to work in my favor. Why can't I just let everyone do what they are going to do any way and keep my stress level down?
I have been trying to find a job, I am taking classes, trying to help my kids with there stuff,do house hold things and yet that doesn't seem to be enough.
"Well you can't please everyone so you have to please your self." that is how the song goes so I am just going to keep doing what I am doing. I have no control over what other people do or don't or how they feel or don't.
Until next time.

    Carrie that is all very true However my youngest is still in Elementary school so if she gets sick I can't even leave her home alone. An she does have time issues, the thinks the whole world runs on her schedule.
I do have them do certain things, and NO it is never done as well as I would have done it or when I say. And I hate it.
and balance I think is a figment of the vocabulary. I have never had everything balanced since I got married. LOL to many other elements and people. That is why I a just trying to focus on what I have to do and everything else can fall to the way side.

    There is a thing called balance.. I haven't quite found the perfect balance in my life between work, school, kids, house, and other obligations I have, but I'm trying.. Take for example housework. I can't do it all myself, so I delegate certain things to my kids.. They may not be done perfectly or the way I do them, and they may not do it right away when I say, but at least it gets done, and I am learning to be content with that.. which is really hard for me being a perfectionist!
As far as the kid stuff goes, once they reached middle school, they were on their own as far as projects, assignments, and what not. I gave them suggestions, helped them get supplies, but after that, they were on their own, and they did very well..
Sometimes we have to change our way of thinking or the way we view things in order for change to occur..
