Question Time

Monday, February 17, 2014

Life has been crazy since way before Christmas. I feel that my list of things to do just keeps getting longer and longer. I can't say that I have finished much. There are things I have needed to start for awhile and haven't gotten to. I haven't been giving my best to what I have been doing. I am feeling bad about that.'s time to ask myself the tough questions. What are my aspirations? What is it that I find important? What do I want to do? What am I doing that I really don't want to do? Am I doing things just because I haven't had the courage to say no - I can't at this time?

I think this has been building up for awhile. This is why I keep saying I have to work on my schedule. I haven't sat and thought about what I want to accomplish - where I want my life to head in the near future. It's time. I'm tired of the stress and I'm tired of people telling me what I should and shouldn't be doing, especially when I know that I am trying my best.

    We could all do that.... I finally got my kitchen table cleaned off the day before yesterday, it's been on top of my list since New Year's. And it got used today too when I had a friend and her dh come for supper for the first time.

    I want to have fun, I worked too hard to still be doing things others want me to do, etc. but what do I really want to do? You are so pensive..... I just do things, but I find I get a lot more done when I have a plan...

    I agree with the things you said. I have lists of things I need to have done or do, but it is difficult getting them done. And I too ask myself some of the questions you asked yourself. And like you, it is time I answer those questions.

    Good luck and well said.

    I think you're doing great! You are always on the sparks and holding yourself accountable! You should be very proud of yourself! Don't listen to the people that are telling you what you should and shouldn't be doing especially when you're doing your best! I'm proud of you! I think you're awesome!

    You may want to make the list of things you do after you accomplish them instead of before or not make a list at all and take one moment at a time to take the pressure off. Give yourself permission to be in the moment like it's your last day.

    Good for you! It takes a little courage to say no, but if they are real friends they won't mind cos they care about you! And if they do mind then they aren't your friends so you don't have to care that they don't like it! :-)

    Glad you're making some positive decisions.

    As for the to do list. Find some small things on the list and do 1 each day to make yourself feel better. Or pick a bigger thing and break it down into smaller steps.

    Hope that helps

    Do what you gotta do! You need to put yourself first. If YOU aren't healthy (physically or emotionally) you won't be as effective in helping anyone with anything. Hope you find what you need to find!

    Have a blessed week!
