Some Soul Searching!

Friday, April 26, 2013

Well I have decided to stop all this fretting and negative thinking about what I can't do, instead I will concentrate on what I can do! Negativity can really pull you down, you either sink or swim, and I decided to swim, I will over-come the many challenges I have and find a way to work around them. I suddenly realized that these things are not going to change, so it is up to me to change my mind set, I'm not able to do some things, but there are others I can! There I feel better already! My biggest objective was to get healthier, and I am accomplishing that, the scale isn't the whole picture ( Thanks Jane for reminding me) So no more moaning and groaning, just find something that works for my body!

    The # on the scale is so much less than we make of it. Sure, it's a requirement for many of our challenges but for the BIG challenge - our life's journey - that # is minuscule in importance Elaine. Sometimes the list of things we seemingly cannot do becomes a heavy pack to carry and weighs us down. Read the above and know you are surrounded by so many friends who care, IRL friends, family and loved ones and set that burden down and allow yourself to feel refreshed, reinvigorated and renewed in this still very new month and time. Embrace each day and give it all you can and know when you rest at night you have done more than many if not most and rest easy and well. The only one you should compare yourself to is YOU - YESTERDAY! Today is a new day full of promise, hope and spark! Make it count! emoticon

    emoticon We all seem to have those thoughts every now and then but you are being productive by focusing on what you can do and figuring out how to work around what you can't do - that is really productive and I need to do more of that.I need to have plans for those nights when I have to hurry up and make a dinner for everyone (including DGDs age 7 and 3) and I need to not lapse into the mac and cheese that they will always eat. And I really really need to have alternate plans for exercise on days when I can't get to the Y or when I have to work unexpectedly and had planned to exercise in that time. So my goal for this weekend is to plan to work around those times when I can't do what I planned, emoticon ..

    It is not the storms we weather, COOLMAMA , that define us; it is the way that we weather the storms! Live In His Grace! For more details on scriptures, story and lesson, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH” and share it with those you love. Vic.
