A Blessing in Disguise
Monday, March 19, 2012
It's the funniest thing but it just dawned on me... all this time I have been alittle frustrated about things but I just realized what I have been frustrated about is a Blessing in disguise. Okay when I say I have been frustrated about things well I have been about several things.. as many of you I have been about losing weight, about trying to figure out what to eat, what works for me and how to balance it all out. ( How much to eat, what to eat, how much to work out, what kinds of workouts... Ect) But the one I am speaking about right now is finances... work has been slow so with that comes no extra money to do things... can't go out of town and see my family and such... and all tho I do miss them I just realized in some ways it is a blessing! Okay I know right about now your going.. HOW is that a blessing NOT seeing your family... well let me explain... to me how this comes out as a blessing is at this point in my life and life style change I m still getting the hang of things with eating and working out and when I go to see the family I tend to eat well any and everything... one because I don't want them to make a fuss over me, (making foods they wouldn't normally eat... And normally I would just say lets go out to eat so I could choose whats better for me and they still get what they want... BUT with no extra money you can't really do that. Also I don't ever seem to drink like I should one because its an almost 3 hour drive and I HATE HATE HATE Public bathrooms... I would rather go in the woods.. I hate them so much!! lol And like most of you when I drink like I should I pee all day long. Then there's the matter of exercise.. I do my best to stay active while there but tend to go with the flow of things and normally we just hang out and talk... not really burning any calories lol anyways so you see I get derailed and with still getting the hang of things its still hard to get derailed and get back on track so to speak. So Today I realized that it is just that a Blessing in Disguise!!
Now I don't mean to say that my family's not important enough or anything... I am just saying I am looking at the positive side to this... because with my finances being the way they are right now I couldn't go see them even if I wanted too. & I do But, well you get the picture right?
Also there is more to the story but I am leaving it out because I m not trying to complain about my life or my finances. I am TRULY BLESSED, I have 2 wonderful, amazing little girls and an Amazing Loving Husband. A wonderful family. We are all healthy. We have A house to live in, clothes on our backs, My bills are getting paid and we have everything we need. And so much more. I feel VERY BLESSED and I am VERY THANKFUL!! God truly has been good to us!! And I THANK GOD Everyday!
As I always say.. Things Could Always be worse!! Be happy about what you do have!!! Don't always go looking at what you don't have!
Thanks for reading! I wish you all a Blessed Day/ Week/Month ect!
