"I can see clearly now, the rain is gone..."

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

Wow!! I'm feeling great today! I've been waiting for this day in the past few weeks. I was very down and going under very fast the last few days; yesterday being the worst. I was feeling so overwhelmed with life! I wanted to be perfect at everything and right away! I was trying to figure out a plan to be perfect at healthy eating (+ including the needs of my husband and 3 kids) , perfect at exercising, perfect at house cleaning/ maintenance, perfect for going back to work as a teacher, perfect at socializing, etc. EVERYTHING
This morning, even if it's actually a rainy day outside, I feel amazing and I see clearly how to balance everything to reach my goals in life... starting with small doable steps. Why do I keep fooling myself; it just leaves me feeling even worst about ME. I can not go from bad eating habits to perfect healthy eating in a day. I can not go from being non-active to jogging in a day. I can not reorganize and clean my whole house on my own in a day. Why do I keep telling myself that I should be able to do that so there must be something wrong with me. Anyway, today is an excellent day!! Today, I plan to make a realistic plan for myself; setting some time aside for myself. You bet I'm going to do everything in my power to keep this clarity and determination as long as I can!
Good day! emoticon emoticon

    "Ear mark" this post so you can come back to it when you feel unbalanced. You have really nailed the realities of what we face while beginning to make life changes. In our enthusiasm as SP newbies, we need to keep perspective that we can't change everything at once across the board everyday, but we can make small changes that will add up to big changes.

    I'm wishing lots of days of "seeing clearly!" emoticon
