January 7th

Tuesday, January 07, 2020

Today was spent..changing the living room around..decluttering, rearranging, releasing some things while embracing others...There is so much to do ..not only on the outside of myself but so much inner work that needs to be done..I have a long laundry list and it seems i get physically tired before i manage to put a dent in it.. I keep telling myself that is okay but somehow have a difficult time believing that it really is..

Today.. I exercised, drank my water, listened to some music..and played with my dog..Sometimes I get tired of being alone and when I am around people I don't want that either.. I think really deep down inside I am just not happy with myself right now..I want things to be different and i know that things take time..and as I often tell others you just have to take one day at a time and pray that tomorrow will be better..."This too shall pass...

    It's hard when you no longer have your partner to lean on. Going it alone must be very difficult. emoticon

    I'm sorry you're not feeling happy with yourself just now - my heart goes out to you. As you said, "this too shall pass," so hang in there until it does. Also, be very kind to yourself. I read an article a friend shared that suggested that people spend a few moments at the end of each day writing down the good things they did that day. They can be very small things like, "I petted my dog today." The only thing to remember is you can't write down things like, "Well, I did a bit of (this or that), but I could have done more or better. You have to only write good things you did in a positive way. It's supposed to really help. I'm going to try it throughout this year. Hugs to you for brighter days ahead.

    The inner head work is the hardest but most rewarding part of the journey. I looked at Indygirls older blogs on Slips, Emotional Eating, Binges, self Esteem. Her words really touched me. She is so honest. I copied her blogs into my journal and added my own thoughts. I kept repeating that until my words spoke directly to my heart.

    It’s hard work and it was hard to reach deep down inside to find my own words but it actually makes the journey easier for me.

    Happy is a place you CAN create.

    Hugs to you. It actually is just fine if a person stops working and rests when one is physically tired, and our brains need the same courtesy. Nothing wrong with that. You're doing really well, I think, doing what you do and then writing it all here to help whoever needs it. Thank you! emoticon

    My mom said that there is always a task to be found that makes the home a better place. I'm happy just to be left alone to read, but that doesn't get anything done, does it? Remember that prayer that talks about changing what we can, accepting what we can't, and having wisdom to know the difference. Seems like you are getting things done, however minor you view them. Be content with what you can get done at this stage. Don't let your mind fuss at you about what you should be doing. Embrace every completed task. emoticon

    when facing multiple challenges it is helpful to break things down into one at a time and remove each item off of the plate ....yes it does take time but always remember YOU are important and reaching your goals is whats important as you shine brightly and beautiful as always emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
