Today I want to feel sorry for myself.
I was exercising and feeling horrible that I was in my gym alone. There are plenty of people in my life who could be exercising with me, but they arenít. Why? Because this is my road and this is how Iíve chosen to travel it. I canít choose how the others in my life travel down their road or harass them into joining me on mine because they are all dealing with their own struggles. I went downstairs to find my husband working on the paper that is due on Wednesday. His teacher has been more critical of his papers and he is having to work twice as hard as I did on the class to ensure that he gets, hopefully, a passing grade. This class is his issue that he must give top priority to right now.
I sit here completing this blog because I want to have a reminder that Iím going down my road, and although there isnít anyone here in my home going down that road with me there are plenty of people in the world doing just what Iím doing right now. They are going down their roads doing what needs to be done in an attempt to have a better life. Iím not alone Iím part of an entire world of people who are all trying to do what makes them happy, and weíre all doing it together.
Today I will put one foot in front of the other. I will complete one activity that helps me move forward towards some of my goals, and tonight I will lay my head down and know that Iím not alone because all of humanity is just trying to do that one thing that will make their lives better, just like me.
