Slippery slope

Thursday, October 03, 2013

Agghhh!!!! Ever read the Charlie Brown comic strip? How many times have we seen him screaming "Argghhhhhh!!!!"? Usually, he is screaming because Lucy has jerked the football away when he is getting ready to kick it.

Do you ever feel this way? Just as you are running towards your goal, the football gets jerked away and you slip. Sometimes we fall; sometimes we steady ourselves and keep trying.

I have found myself in this vicious cycle since the beginning of school. One child in middle school and one in elementary--lots of homework. Then there are the extracurricular activities. Plus the emotional drama of middle school. Health concerns with my elementary school aged child. My mom is fighting cancer. I deal with Multiple Sclerosis every day of my life. There is tension in some of my interpersonal relationships.

I am the Charlie Brown who has slipped up and am laying on my back saying, "Good Grief!" We ALL have struggles. We ALL have to keep going. Instead of following through with my weight loss goals, I have allowed weight to consume me. Time to get up, dust myself off, and press onward!

I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me! emoticon

    We have to allow ourselves the privilege of learning through our mistakes. We let others do it so why not ourselves? Good luck!

    Great analogy. I know what you mean. I have learned patience through this process.
