Getting Back to the Basics

Saturday, August 10, 2013

I'm a wreck. Mentally, emotionally, spiritually, etc. I need to get back to the basics and focus on all the things I can control. This means leaving the things I cannot control behind!

I cannot control: others' thoughts and attitudes and behaviors (even my children!), past choices which can't be changed, stress that is bound to come my way, changing the years and years of my life that I've not lived healthy

I'm coming up on my 4th "anniversary" of being here. emoticon I haven't accomplished most of my goals, and I've revised them time and time again.
