For me?

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

So today started out kind of weird for me. Last night I got a phone call and had to help one of my friends with some personal problems. She ended up staying at my house. This really threw me for a loop because I am a creature of habit. I didn't get my full workout in although I did some of it. I also didn't eat until the early afternoon. Which probably wasn't the greatest idea but I'm a work in progress. Its just hard when you want to see results and everything else just keeps getting in the way. I have always been a generous person and try to do what I can for others but I am starting to realize that it is taking away from working on my life. I am the only one who can change my life to make it better for me. Hmm... an epiphany. I hope this one will stick. Alll day I felt guilty for missing my workout and I am going to do the rest of it now but I also realize it would have been easier and probably a better workout this morning when I had quite a bit more energy for it. As hard as it is for me to say no to others I think for a little while it is going to have to be that way. I hope I can keep this mindset.

    It took me forever to realize that sometimes "no" or even limiting being an ear for someone else is necessary to take care of yourself. This is also true if you find that their difficulties or sadness start to leak into your life... I had to cut out some people in my life because all they wanted to do is "woe is me" and needed an active listener. I'm glad I did and I am glad I can now say no. Just a suggestion - but if your friend stayed overnight - I might have asked her to join me in my workout - make it a win/win. Hugss g/f watching and reading your blogs - keep writing...
