This seems to be compounded by the changes going on around me. The seasons are changing, the weather is changing, my friend’s lives and my parent’s health are changing. And I really don’t like change much. I know, I sound like Andy Rooney. But, it’s the truth.
Anyway, teetering on the edge of complete overload earlier this week, I grabbed my Daily Word in search of the peace that I know is available when I calm myself down instead of giving in to the meltdown. In ten minutes I was at least no longer considering myself an idiot, so I jotted a quick list of all I was thankful for, including the things I HAVE managed to complete. Then I finished my 20 minute sabbatical with a quick list of tasks yet to be accomplished and gave them more reasonable deadlines, or noted who could help with them.
This exercise is helpful for someone like me whose unreasonable expectations for herself often run her right into the ground. A couple of good friends rounded out the “reality check” I needed this week and I once again got out of bed this morning, thankful for good friends, good health, a full and bountiful life and great expectations!
Hope you have a super week as we near the end of October – and I hope you have good friends to help you keep balanced, too!
