Some Days Its Tough Being A Grown-up...

Monday, November 25, 2013

Man, life sure can get challenging sometimes but you just have to find ways to push through. I remember being a teenager, sitting in my bedroom and being angry at my parents about something stupid and thinking, "I can't WAIT to get old enough to move outta here! I am going to be on my own, living my life the way I want and just having a whole lotta fun!" Never once when I was daydreaming about how wonderful my life was going to be, did I include any of the obstacles, hurdles, HOLES and ditches that would naturally occur along the way! Never once did I consider the devastation that my parents passing would bring, or how I would worry about my kid out in the world, bills, jobs, health, none of that ever occurred in my young and very immature mind. Now sometimes I wish I could go back to those days of sitting in my room with my lip poked out, when all I had to worry about was what outfit I would be wearing to the upcoming party...lol! Nevertheless, life goes on and I have learned to cherish the good times because just as sure as I continue to live, the stressful times will come. I have learned how to meditate to calm my mind when it starts to short circuit and I have learned that exercise is my best friend because it nourishes my mind, body and soul!

    Absolutely Pam!!! The only option to be being alive and grown is being deceased! Might as well be the BEST DAMN adults we can be right? emoticon

    My mantra when beginning my weight loss regime this time, was to just GROW UP and do it!

    At 55 (when I started) I realized just how childish, immature and naive I was to even think that I would someday have an easy out on the weight loss--I hoped my thinking, my body or something supernatural would magically 'assist' me in losing weight. It didn't happen! I had to GROW UP and act like an adult and do the work required to lose the excess poundage. I had to grudgingly accept the responsibility for my weight.

    Some Days Its Tough Being A Grown-up... true, true, true!
    Even when we 'think' we are grown and mature there are still parts of us that want to revert to those days when we didn't have to face the reality of being GROWN UP.

    Thanks for sharing! I was just thinking about this myself. When I was 8/9 couldn't wait to get to the double digits, then couldn't wait to be a teenager, then couldn't wait to be in my 20's!!! You have said it well! emoticon emoticon emoticon
