I’m in charge?

Friday, May 16, 2014

"Wait. Oh sh^t. I’m in charge?"

This was what struck me as a read www.mindbodyenergyhealin

Ah yes, I'm in the driver's seat. I control my actions or inaction. Even when faced with challenges I can chose to push forward to the best of my ability or throw in the towel.

Went for an eye exam and was truly disappointed in the way the office was run and in the (to me) less than through examination by the doctor. Granted she may be skilled, but to me I felt that I was in a factory being processed. She wasn't like this when I first went to her, but changes do happen. Should I stay with the status quo? Heck no! I will do what is best for me. I'm in charge and need to find a new doctor.

So who buys the food? Uh, I do!
I have been making much better choices, but I need to be stronger. Like I have been in avoiding the cupcake truck. (don't ask)

So who picks the exercise? Me!
I have been pretty good about modifying, but need to find more options for when I am not feeling well. Do what I can when I can because it helps me feel better and reduces stress.

So who sets your routine? Ummm, I do!
Even the lack of a routine is a routine. Say what? No doing anything is a routine, it is a habit.

Routine - noun- a sequence of actions regularly followed; a fixed program.
synonyms: procedure, practice, pattern, drill, regimen; program, schedule, plan;
formula, method, system; custom

Since I'm in charge I get to set my routine.

    I recently had the same reaction to my dentist. And: changed my dentist.

    You are right: you are in charge. I am in charge. (No question mark!!)

    Absolutely, WE are in charge. WE make the decisions, good, bad, indifferent. WE are the only ones who can decide what goes in our mouths. An update to this morning's blog is that my in-laws want a bucket O chicken from KFC with all the fixins: biscuits, cole slaw, potatoes and gravy. AND we bought a carrot cake with chocolate pecan icing for my MIL's birthday. So what is there for me to eat in that?

    I am in charge. I will be getting a 6" veggie sub and taking apricots. I don't care what they think. Last year when we went over I made healthy chili and we brought a watermelon, and they ate NOTHING. So now they get to eat what they want and I will eat what I want!

    Love your attitude this morning, now I'm off to check out the link. emoticon

    This is so true!!! And definitely the blog for people to read. It is as simple as you say yet we are all guilty of feeling as if someone else was in charge. Thanks for sharing!
