Pledge to do my best...

Friday, June 28, 2013

Hi everyone. I went through a dark spell this last little while (Several people that I have known since childhood passed away and my grandpa is dying of a slow bleed that they can't find). I realized that I can only control certain things and that I need to worry about myself and not try to take on other peoples problems because I can't handle them too. It doesn't mean that I don't care. I can still lend a hearing ear or give hugs. Just need to concentrate on doing my best for myself and my son. And that is NOT happening right now. I am so frustrated with myself. So I am making a pledge to myself that I will strive to do my best no matter what the circumstances. I want to apply this to all areas of my life not just the physical. Thanks for hanging in there with me even through the rough and bumpy times. I liked what I saw on another bloggers page and that is that life is like seasons. So true!

    I think of life as a wheel that is always turning. Sometimes we are on top, sometimes not, but usually somewhere in the middle.

    It's really hard when people who we are close to pass away. I just lost my mom in January and I miss her very much. My husband and I are at the age where we are losing our friends. I am sorry that you are going through that and also that you're stressed over your grandpa. There are some good books at the library to help people pass through grief.

    Best to you!

    I am sorry to hear about your grandfather's illness. It is ok to modify your exercise pace, the key I have learned not to stop. I use to have a all or nothing mentality which was so counter-productive, it kept me at a level of finding away to give-up.

    I learned when I could not stand for long periods of time due to the weight on my knees, I got a chair and a mini-stair stepper and stepped while I worked on the computer, and stepped while I worked at my desk and stepped while I watched TV. The point is I modified my exercise pace, and intensity, and as the weight started to come off my knees got better and now I can Zumba for 1 hour. We are all here to listen, care and share. emoticon
