Changing my mind....
Monday, June 10, 2013
Lately my blogs have been about what I have been doing wrong and what I am going to do to change it. All really good ideas, but not really effective at motivating me to do things differently. I just feel guilty and somewhat fail-y, because my heart doesn't seem to be in it. I examined my reasons for struggling...
I want to bbq, I want to socialize, I want to be outdoors doing what I love and I have to work 2 jobs, and I have to do household chores, and I have to sleep, and I have NO time. Gee, what an ardious journey and I have to change my lifestyle, get fit and drop some weight too. Its too much.........
So then I decided to focus on what I am doing right.
I am mindful of what I am eating and drinking and even if I go over at least I have an idea ofo where I am heading and I still care, I care a lot, so that helps cut back a bit.
I have no, and rarely do, junk food in my house. If I over eat its all good healthy foods, so it takes a long time to go over board.
I am outside every day. The sun is goood for me, its good for my mood and if I am not walking I have lots to do, mowing trimming, planting, weeding. These things are good too and I enjoy them and do more of them because of my commitment to be out doors everyday.
I go to bed on time and get as much sleep as I can and most days I get 7-8 hours, on the days that I don't, well I cope, that is life, you don't always get what you want.
I make time for myself when I can. I can't always, but I can often. I focus on the "life is good", when I do. Life really is good, even when things are rough and scarey and hard, life is good.
Rome wasn't built in a day. Trite but true. There is a bigger picture that I sometimes lose sight of, and when I do it seems like things are too difficult. This is because I get confused. I want everything to happen the way I want it to all at once, with minimal effort, with no stress strain or worry.
I am okay.
I am doing alright.
The universe is unfolding as it should.
I am lucky.
I am blessed.
I am fortunate.
I am amazing
