New prespective

Sunday, March 03, 2013

I have a new prespective for this month and hopefully it will stick with me. I will not allow myself to be negative and let the little stuff bother me. It always has and i'm tried of being so senstive to what people say and what i say to myself. So that is also going to be part of my goals for this month. Learn how to enjoy life.

    Hope your new perspective is sticking! We all tend to send negative signals to ourselves. I always worry about earning a decent income. Women have done this for a long time. Thank goodness women's liberation gave us more freedom to be our own persons. I'm not totally in favor of having all the power but I would like women to get credit for our contribution.

We end up being responsible for being wives, mothers, mangers, cooks house cleaners, laundry maids and care-providers. In addition someone expects us to stay in shape and look good. I settle for just loving who we are, emoticon being happy and sharing all the other stuff.

    That's a great goal! It's not easy to just BE, because we're surrounded by messages of how we're supposed to be better and be worrying about who we are and how we are. But hey - we all think you're GREAT, so you shouldn't worry anyway!!

    Great goal Julie! emoticon We are gifted by God with a rich and priceless amount of time, talent and treasures! Julie you are a lovely, caring and gifted person. You just need to let your light shine! Don't measure who you are by what other people have achieved.
I understand your emotions and sensitivity. I hope I have not said anything that offends you! It hard to know what bothers people. I get upset as well and take everything to heart. We are emotional creatures and not robots. I see nurses and physicians in my job that are so cold and calloused after so many years of dealing with sick people and it saddens me. Keep your sensitive side but find an effective way to cope with your emotions. I turn my negative energy into something positive like exercise and SP. You have been a true lifesaver for me JULIE!!!!!

    Now that's a fabulous goal to set for yourself. I've always said we have enough piled on us from outside, piling it on ourselves is something WE can control. It is not easy, but it is doable. Just keep saying you deserve better than that, especially from yourself. Once you get there, the world is your oyster. :)

    I've been thinking about this sort of thing myself this morning. I need to stop worrying about, and thinking to death, things that don't matter, a month ahead of time. A verse came to me while I was pondering this - Isaiah 26:3 "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you." God loves us and He won't let us down. We can trust Him to always be there with us, so no need to worry or think it to death! We can have a mind that is at peace. :-)

    I am with you on that. I am tired of worrying about what people are going to say or being sensitive about what they say. Let's live life to the fullest!
