I started back with SparkPeople last Saturday. I've been recording my food and exercise. I'm doing great! Or so I thought.
At work yesterday, (I teach 6th graders in a public school), a parent conference sent me off the deep end. As soon as I left the meeting, I began to cry--uncontrollably. I struggled to hold it together for 2 more hours. I couldn't leave--we were already short 2 subs in the building.
I thought I was doing great. I thought my life was wonderful. And now this.
I hate to admit that I am weak. That I'm not able to simply "Cast my cares upon the Lord". I wish I could envelop myself in His promises and be sustained. Life is certainly hard. I'm working on it. But it sure is hard.

    Lately I have been saying "not my circus, not my monkeys" when stuff starts to overwhelm me. The holidays overwhelm, but imagining the people who are "the problem" as monkeys and their drama as the circus reminds that I am not the ring master.

    We are all here for your comfort of knowing there are people that will listen. I just started back on here also..I'm frustrated that I feel I can't do it all on my own..But I'm on here again..needing to see and hear the support of others encouraging

    I'm sorry you're struggling. We all do from time to time. I saw this post the other day that said, "Giving up your goal because of a set back is like slashing your other 3 tires because you have a flat." Keep on going 😉👍

    You are doing great. As one teacher to another I feel your pain. Either parents or admin give us a reason to cry. It is why God created wine. Cheer up now that you have hopefully laughed a little.
