Don't allow the approval and attention of others to destroy you. Remain humble and grateful for all of your accomplishments, and know that a force greater than your ego is always at work in your life.

I say I don't care because I know it's true. But, there are a few people who do matter- less as I get older. Some of them only because it makes my life easier.

I decided to be like mama was after her stroke--do my best and that is all I can do. I found out you sure can't please everyone.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

If you want to be confident but don't normally act that way, then today, just this once, act in the physical world the way you believe a confident person would.

Definitely easier said than done, lol.
But I'm on marriage #3...this is pretty much my last chance before I give up on relationships entirely emoticon And I find that looking back at the mistakes from my previous life generally help me in making decisions in this one. And since things are just getting better and better after 5 years, I guess it must be working....for both of us.

Like Fatchance, everyone wants a part of my time. I love sharing, but sometimes it gets testy. I am my Mom's only caretaker, my DH, my daughter- when in RN training, to help with 3 boys, obligation to Women's Ministry Group-various duties and others. I love doing for all of them, they depend on me. When too much is demanded at once, I get stressed because the needs of those I love are real. I have to wonder if I am capable of carrying out those requests sometimes. The ones I mentioned, aren't taking unfair advantage of me, it is more that I am the one they trust. However, so far I have worked through it and with God's help all things are possible. That is what I depend on. Besides all that, right now I thank God that I have been able to have some time to my self. I was born to serve, not be served. I am not all used up yet.

We can let stress rule our life or try to not worry about it. What is going to happen is going to happen no matter what, just do the best you can. We can't control others. (Sure wish I could though. lol)

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

Can't agree with this one.
Korea aiming warheads at hawaii -- that's stressful.
People losing their jobs and homes -- that's stressful.
Innocent people being killed all over the world -- that's stressful.
However, worring about whether or not you'll lose weight -- that's self induced stress
Concerned if you look attractive or not -- that's self induced stress
I guess I'm saying that your statement is true some of the time, but not all of the time. Just my opinion. emoticon

Even when we are pulled in many directions, it is important to remember if we don't take care of "me", we can't help anybody else. So, for the good of all, it should be, "me first". I know - easier said than done!

Great advice -- but hard to follow. As a wife, mom, sister, aunt, and grandma it's so hard to keep myself in the foreground. Everyone seems to want a part of me and I'm willing to share, so there's not much left for me! LOL!

When something bothers me, I have to stop, & redirect my thinking.
I ask myself, "Is this worth fretting about, & where will that get me?"
It helps me get perspective.

I'd like to agree with this one...but since it's a coworker (who I like, personally)that just doesn't have the ability to competently do her job anymore, it's pretty much out of my hands. All I can do is correct her mistakes...which is the thing that's really bothering me, lol!!

This is so true. The evil actions get more attention than the good deeds.

“For all my good intentions, there are days when things go wrong or I fall into old habits. When things are not going well, when I'm grumpy or mad, I'll realize that I've not been paying attention to my soul.
