Rough patch

Friday, April 13, 2007

I seem to be in a slump, not necessarily weight-loss wise, but in general. Disappointment seems to be a given these days, whether it be with a family member's choices, or things just not turning out as I had hoped. Church life is unsatisfying - my friends are all too busy - my mentee has lost a lot of his momentum to turn his life around - even the weather stinks! I am also constantly busy, but I feel like I am jack of all trades and master of none - and that the only reason I am sought after is because no one else wants the responsibility of doing the things I am doing. Just when I felt like I was finally gaining some self-esteem, I get slapped down, not once but twice...

Hopefully, by writing these things down, I won't turn to food for comfort, which is what I REALLY want to do. I am holding my own weight-wise, and even though I would like to be losing more quickly, I am content for the moment to be maintaining.

This too shall pass (I pray!).

    Hi, just caught your blog on the new blog posts of another member and followed the yellow brick links to your page. I just went through a blue day or so, myself. It does pass, truly it does. One thing I am struggling to do, is to view "ME" as God created me. He knew me before I was created in my Mom's womb. He has filled me with such wonderful qualities. As that old saying goes, "God don't make no junk!" So let us look instead to God, for our self-worth. As we are precious as rubies in His sight.

    Oh dear one, I am right there with you. Please know that you are not alone in this. Getting these feelings down DOES help. I am going through insane situations as well. One of the things that keeps me sane is my faith, the love of my family, and Spark. Just know that YOU ARE SPECIAL!
    Hugs to you, Shan
