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

    It is a tough balance between the 'wants' and 'have to's'. I think you are on the right track by focusing on what you are doing well at the moment. Trust yourself and the process although impatience makes it hard. You are worth it.
