Trying to find balance and what is best for me...

Monday, January 07, 2013

The silver lining didn't take long to tarnish. Things have been pretty rough these last 6 mo. I still haven't been able to find another job and I had to fight to get unemployment because the supervisor that fired me told unemployment that I wasn't fired, that I quit. I told them when the boss demands your ID you can't enter the building or log on and off the job so that would mean you're fired. They agreed with me. As for more time with my husband... well that didn't last...he started blaming me for everything under the sun which didn't do much to bolster my self-esteem. And then I ran into some health issues. So here I am back on Spark and back at my old weight trying once more to get my weight under control. But I am beginning to realize that it's not just the weight that's the problem it's my life. So I am kicking back into slow gear...taking time to meditate and pray...getting back on the treadmill and spending time alone with myself trying to figure out how I want to go forward into this new year. At this point things can only get better.

    I think you made the right decision to return to Spark.
    I, too am trying to figure out how I got where I am right now & what I need to do to find myself again.
    I'm here for you. emoticon

    Such great introspection can only yield some positive thoughts on how to proceed forward. Things will get better.

    I will pray for you. My hubby isn't very understanding and always makes me feel everything is my fault . He doesn't like me being on the computer at all . When he is home he wants me to sit with him even when he is watching sports, which I don't like. He has his pity parties all the time . I feel like I have to tiptoe around him. I am very uncomfortable in my on home. I have found I needed time for myself and take care of myself, because no one else will. Find your balance and don't let anyone or anything derail you from getting healthy.I hope things get better for you. emoticon

    Taking that time to yourself to figure out what changes need to be made and coming up with a game plan to make those changes will help. I know that once I address everything and have some direction it relieves a lot of my stress. I hope things get better for you soon emoticon
