Growing up is hard to doooooo

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Bleh. emoticon I'm 35 and I'm still working on growing up. I'm very close to being done with this current project. emoticon My Mom is retiring, tomorrow is her last day at work. This is emoticon and its also necessary, she is losing her vision. Its not enough to give up a driver's license, but it is enough to not work as a graphic artist.

I realize now that I have a tendency to drag my feet any time I perceive something as being 'hard' or 'work'. I am doing meditations emoticon to release that old tendency. I know that it stems from my old coping technique that did help when I was going through the abuse as a small emoticon child, but I also understand that is an old habit whose time has come and gone. Its time to shift my focus, shift my energy, and be fully present now.

I am struggling with my emoticon weight. However, I am making some progress. I have been doing meditations about that too. My eating emoticon habits are improving. My exercise is slowly coming back. I have been getting up every other day to go for a walk emoticon before emoticon breakfast. I had forgotten just how good emoticon that makes me feel.

My virus is improving very slowly. Occasionally I get emoticon fevers. Sometimes I get swollen glands. Some days I just feel really emoticon tired. Yesterday I had a sore spot in my throat so I sucked on some vitamin C and this morning its much better. Even now I feel like just going back to emoticon sleep. We have had good emoticon weather for the last 6 weeks but I haven't really enjoyed it much. Then today there was smoke out there again. I hope that the fire gets put out soon. I will be doing indoor activities instead of hiking emoticon outside. Leslie Sansone is my friend these days. I like that she is upbeat and doesn't put people down for not being 'ripped'.

    I'm 61 and feel that most of us have areas that we have not resolved from our youth and we need to. You are very brave to admit your weakness and to work on correcting it. Too many of us ignore our problems or blame them on others.

    I hope your mom enjoys retirement and I hope you feel better soon.

    Congrats on you mom for retiring. I never have regretted it. Been retired since 2001 but managed to work part time for fun for 10 years until 2011. Now at soon to be 63 and although retired, I still find ways to make money for fun and to help pay those extra wants I get occasionally.
