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 can control: my diet, my use of free time, my connection with God in making more time to be with Him, my role as wife and mom in my daily life, my choice to move forward instead of backward, my reaction to stress and emotions, finding time to exercise
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 sure there is more for both of those categories. The fact of the matter is I have wasted too much time. I started on SP in October of 2009 after my Dad passed away and I don't think I've ever fully "gotten it." It is time to really "Get it!" I'm coming up on my 4th "anniversary" of being here.
I haven't accomplished most of my goals, and I've revised them time and time again. It's time to actually make it happen!
It's the first day of the rest of my life. Here I go...
