I feel calm today and in control
Sunday, November 27, 2011
The craziness that has become my life is not going to upset me anymore. Whatever happens is going to happen ... all I can control is my reaction to the events in my life. I've come a long way in the past year. And I know I am more fortunate than many... I feel blessed to have my daughter, who I love so much, and great friends and family. Yes... friends are first on my list because my family, even though the are sometimes there for me, they have caused a lot of hurt in my life and I've learned NOT to depend on them for support. On the other hand my daughter is my best friend. She's truly special. And I have some wonderful friends... not many...but they are quality friends and I love them.
So... I had a great weekend. I danced so much Friday night (a solid 3 hours..plus) and I watched my food intake...was I perfect....probably not....and I didn't track my food but...whatever..it's ok. The most important thing to me this weekend is that I feel calm and relaxed.... and in control of me.
Tomorrow is the start of a new week. I have plans to work out and eat right but I'm not going to stress over it. I'm going to take small steps and continue on my journey FORWARD... and I'm going to keep in mind that Life is an adventure... each day is a fresh one and I plan to enjoy each and every day.
I used to write a gratitude journal.... I found it when reorganizing this weekend. I'm plan to write in it often. So many things to be grateful for.... even little things. I'm so blessed... and I can handle whatever comes my way. I know when I set my mind to something I can make it happen. I know because I look at my past blogs, all that was going on in my life, and I took control and lost 50 plus pounds, worked out and got toned.... and landed a great job! Yep... I got lazy recently but I'm setting my sites on my goal. I'm going to get there... and I'm going to do it calm and relaxed. Is there any other way???
Keep Sparkin... it really works
