I came across this quote this morning and I thought I would share it. We have so much going on in our lives on a daily basis, and we truly can't control any of it. All we can control is how we react to it.
You could be overwhelmed by bills, maybe you don't have a job, maybe your company is going through financial difficulties and you're not sure you will continue to have a job, maybe your children are having trouble discovering who they are....it doesn't matter what your burden is, it is not for you to control. All you have to do is give it up and do the best you can to make the situation better.
Right now, I have a few things on my plate, some are amazing and some are not. However, for me, I keep giving it up to God to take care of what I cannot. My husband has been laid off for the past 5 months and things are tight, but what is different, in the end I know it will work out. How do I know, IT ALWAYS DOES. We have never really been in a situation that we could not handle. It is frustrating that can't do what I want, however, maybe is because what I want is not what is good for me. We can't go eat out all the time, so we have to eat in....we can't go buy what we want so maybe we really don't need it anyway. These are the things that keep my head in the game. We don't waist our money on things that don't serve us. We are wiser in this time of need for ourselves. We are finding that it is okay; as long as the mortgage is paid and the car is paid along with insurance we are good.
The same goes with our body image and the way we feel about ourselves. There are things that I could have nitpicked about myself. However, while doing this blog, my journey has taught me to love myself. I don't put in my body what it doesn't need. The more I respect and take care of my body, the more I am releasing the weight and feeling better about myself every day.
This blog is my balloon. I am able to hear what I am sharing with all of you and I no longer say terrible things about myself. I look in the mirror and I see a wonderful, giving, loving, beautiful woman who only wants the best for others. That truly makes me feel amazing. The more I see that person the more I become that woman every day. Let me tell you I love it.
Sit down and write all the things that you don't like about yourself and your situation. Then tear it up, put it in a balloon if you have it or a dish. Now write down all the things you love about yourself and your situation, along with all the things you want for yourself and your situation. Really absorb what you want and what you already have. Take the balloon, blow it up and set the balloon free when you are ready. Or with the dish when you are ready set the paper on fire, let it burn all of what you don't want away. Trust me, you will feel amazing.
Have a great day my friends. Until we meet again.
