How am I doing?..............

Thursday, November 05, 2009

Pretty well, I think.

I am feeling improved. Physically and emotionally.

I have more energy again. I'm feeling less fatigued and physically stronger.

I'm grieving less and am more content with the difficult decisions I have had to make lately regarding Wheeler and my father. I can't control the uncontrollable. I accept that I have my limits.

I am much less stressed. I have stopped fretting about the future and am concentrating on the here and now. Enjoying what is and trying to bring back the joy in my life.

I am getting into an exercise groove again where it is easier and more pleasurable.

I am eating better.

I have starting decluttering again.

I am more focused on my goals, though they are not as defined as I would like them to be. As my friend Scolly says, I need to start planning to plan. LOL.

    Re: decluttering, can you and Linda Marie come over and find my old camera charger and SD card?

    I decluttered today! cleaned out the Halloween junque! I figure 4 boxes is enough! I picked out the bestest! I pray for you daily Morticia! I remember what I went through when my father was not doing very well! I actually went out into a corn field and screamed! I thought he would live forever! He walked on water! I had to learn life went on and after the anger I started to heal! but I never ever forgot!

    Prayers always Morticia!

    Healing is an amazing process. We think we shall always be over shadowed by the grief of a loss but the sun and moon keep rising and we keep getting stronger. You are an amazing person with a great store of inner strength. you will continue to move forward and you will support your family and friends along the way.

    as the sign on my wall says, "The river doesn't need you to push it, in order for it to flow." Keep on flowing & bending... you're going to be just fine.

    Maybe you can find some fitness event in the spring and focus on it and train for it. It's nice finding something like that to get your mind off other things. Good to hear your feeling better.

    As the song says, "I can see clearly now, the rain has gone. It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiney day!"

    It's amazing how the Lord God created us to be resilient. But what is even better are the friends that He gives to us to encourage us, to listen to us, and just to be present with us in our time of need.

    Thanks for being such an amazing friend.

    You are loved! emoticon

    Good for you. It'll take time, but it'll all come together! You're doing good considering all you've been through.

    Plan to plan, my dear!! : ) I'll plan with you - in about 2 weeks after my IEP meetings at school! I'm glad things are less stressful and that you're back to the decluttering - that's a sure sign of improvement!!

    I am glad you are feeling better. Realistically, there is very little that we can truly control in this world. We just have to do the best we can and pray for the best. Sounds like you ahve done just that.

    I'm thankful that you are getting back to your old self. Trying to control what you can't is only a sure road to stress. Do what you can, and leave the rest to God.
