shin splints and complaining

Thursday, March 13, 2014

I have shin splints.

I am NOT complaining.

I got advice and I am walking this week instead of running.

I will get back to running.

I'm a huge complainer! I got into this very bad habit at work. everyone complains at my work...

But I decided to give it up for lent.

But the devil is strong and all I found myself doing more was complaining.

I sent out a prayer request to my most spectacular praying friends.

And guess what?

Today was great! I had many obstacles, but I did not complain. Instead, I found ways to make an obstacle an opening to something new.

I ended up eating lunch with an old friend; Subbing at a school site that I had never been to and earning some extra cash; getting praised for an excellent idea I came up with at my job (after having a very awful day on Monday--this is a huge victory); And I found myself thinking more positive thoughts.

This day was not perfect. I got into fights with my daughter and boyfriend. But I found places of forgiveness and new insights to each relationship.

Yes! Today was good.
