This is going to be short and sweet:
I don't feel well, and I am tired...but I am doing it anyway.
Nothing interrupts The Journey. I have wasted too many years making excuses...thinking I will start "as soon as". But "as soon as" never gets here! I may need to modify a bit, but The Journey continues.
There will always be SOMETHING. That's just life. And the something can be fun stuff, like visiting relatives (the kind you WANT to see!), or celebrations, or special events, or holidays, etc etc.
Or, the something can be the NOT so fun stuff, like illness, or injury, or visiting relatives (the kind you do NOT want to see!), or tragedy, or unpleasant circumstances, etc etc. Life is full of them.
But The Journey continues.
A few years ago, when I first started, I had the mistaken notion that somehow I should be exempt from the Not So Fun Stuff because of my "efforts to improve"...and when they would occur, I would whine "but it's not fair", or "why me?" Now I see it is like the tide...it comes and goes, and that is normal...that is life. It is how I react to it that makes it better or worse.
For now, my attitude is: The Journey continues...no matter what. I refuse to let anything steal it away. Pout if I must...cry if I must...crank up the music if I must...do whatever it takes...but even during the hard times: THE JOURNEY CONTINUES. And just like the tide, things will change, and soon I am sure I will feel better.
From Dr Phil's book: "Stay real and stay flexible."
My verse for today: "...joyfully giving thanks to the Father."
My quote for today: Deja-Moo: The feeling that you've heard this bull before.
Enjoy the Journey,
