This Week Hasn't Gone Like I Planned

Friday, August 17, 2018

It wasn't a total washout, because I've gotten exercise and I've been drinking the right amount of water. I finish the coursework for my class today, and I've been good about setting schedules and sticking to them. But the week still hasn't looked like I want it to look. The stress of starting a new course and getting worrying news about my mom built up until I slipped back into the old bad habits. Yesterday I ate everything in sight. I didn't want to do that! I keep trying and trying to get past old habits, but I've never managed to get past them permanently. I'm terrible at making permanent changes. Or, ok, I haven't been able to do it yet. I know I'll never be a perfect person, because no one is, but a few permanent victories would be nice. I've tried to change my attitude, I've tried to be realistic, I've tried to focus on the reasons why I need to get healthier. Where do I find the thing that will work for me? How do I make this permanent when it's so freaking hard?

    I understand what you're saying. I tried a lot of different things, and kept going until I found what worked for ME - what I could do and sustain (and there were days where I didn't do that either). And I finally stopped doing things that worked for everyone else thinking that if it worked for them, it must work - and it does - for that person. Don't give in just yet - there is something (or some somethings) that works for you, it just takes time to figure out what that is.

    It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.
