Pulling Up My Big Girl Panties....

Friday, August 29, 2014

and getting out of my funk!

Just because I can't do everything doesn't mean I can't do SOMETHING!

So I'm going to stop eating my frustration and pain and do the things I can do.

* I made an appointment with the physical therapy office.
* I can do some upper-body work with weights.
* I will stretch gently.
* I will clean my office.
* I will work on whittling down my list.

Thanks to everyone whose blogs and comments have inspired me to cut my Pity Party short.

Let's make this August 29, 2014 the best August 29, 2014 there ever was, or ever will be!

    Hey... it's incredibly easy to let external influences... your Mom, your injury... bring us down. You wouldn't be human if that stuff didn't affect you. Good for you though, for deciding to stand up to it all and pummel through! I applaud you! Every time I let myself slide... and it's happened umpteen times over the years... I keep reminding myself that there is still 'time' to make the changes I want to make. The slow downs are just that... they're not stoppers.

Have a great day girl!!!

    I'm so sorry about your mother. Whatever decision she makes will probably be best for her but may be hard for you. *Hugs* at this difficult time.

Kudos to you for pulling yourself out of the pity party, but you do have a lot of stuff going on. I hope your pain gets sorted out quickly so you can get ready for Nepal.

    There is a lot that can be accomplished from the waist up -- your brain is up there for one thing!

Keep thinking good thoughts!

    Great Blog! I've been in a funk too. This helped me "set the timer" on my grey cloud.
I have much to be grateful for every day. I'm sure you feel the same. I'm glad you listed all the things you CAN do. Such a great way to turn things around. You've been so active and so inspirational. Now you have continued to inspire as you hurdle bumps in the road.
Thank you so much!
