Hello Everyone, I'm home & everyone is gone. I find myself emotionally drained today. I did the clean up in the kitchen & got the coffee machine descaling. I'm in bed & just resting & thinking pleasant thoughts.
Emotional drain is something I didn't identify early in life. Now I know the difference between physical tired & over-use & emotional drain of wonderful events. I've taken care of so many people over the last 3 weeks that I'm now just taking care of my needs today. That means staying in my night gown, staying in my bedroom & rest, sleep, meditate, watch t.v., drink water & not commit to anything.
I do have my calendar programmed for 5:45 pm to take my bath, wash my hair, clean up the rental room, vacuum, put the slide projector & all slides away. By 9:00 pm the house should be organized & ready for the new roomie to move in tomorrow.
I do need to remember that everyone makes their own decisions. I can walk away & not bring their drama into my life. I also want to remember that if I spread myself too thin, I need to walk away. When I hear my friend & family say over and over . . "I'm just stubborn . . . . ." and then continue to complain about ____________________ and not do anything to help themselves; that's their decision.
I'm streamlining the walk away and not take on any responsibility for their 'happiness'. LOL!
This is a challenge for me. I'll stay home today & not accept any phone calls, turned off my iPod & just float in my own happiness. It takes decades to learn when to stop.
On point for food today. On point for water. I still have my supplements to finish. It's my decision to be healthy. It's my decision to do what's good for me. I'm a very lucky woman. YIPPEEEEE! Connie
