I spent four whole days worrying about something that I had no control over. I prayed, I cried, I fretted and stewed. I made some assumptions that turned out to be incorrect, too.

Did it doing me any good?

Not one bit. However, it caused me a lot of stress, which we all know isn't good for us.

Thankfully I didn't do a lot of stress eating, but the damage was done in other areas.

I need to work harder to find ways to combat worry and stress in my life and, as the Serenity Prayer says, "accept the things I cannot change". I know I can do this, but it is going to take time and effort.

The Serenity Prayer also talks about having the courage to change the things I can. This is something that I'm learning to do through SparkPeople and some other things that I've been doing.

I'm stepping out in courage and faith to:

1. Lose weight and get fit.

2. Learn some new skills (crocheting and polymer clay).

3. Read the Bible through from cover to cover.

4. Get fit enough to do a 10K at the end of May.

5. Look good for my wedding day (also in May).

6. Learn to love myself more and accept myself the way I am while trying to make changes that will improve my life and relationships.

Life is good. I shouldn't spend so much time worrying!

    Easier said than done, but by putting your thoughts in writing you give them the necessary power to find ways to make them happen...
