All of the above said, I spread myself too thin. It's a given for nearly every, single day. Lately I've been thinking how much I suffer for it. There isn't one thing I'm really good at. I know I should be a better wife, mother, friend, employee, dog owner, the list really goes on and on. It's been weighing heavily on me lately. I know I need to take action, because life isn't made to be lived like this. I will take the next week to make notes of the things that make me happiest and try to figure out how to make those a priority. I figure, if I'm doing the things that feed my soul, it will benefit all aspects of my life.
It has not been an easy week in a lot of ways. In fact, I would say it has been very difficult. Through it all, I'm happy to say that I lost 3 pounds 2 oz. (more than I had lost in the past 5 weeks combined) I got my mind back on track (for my food choices), and my body thanked me for it. I'm especially proud, that even through some of the toughest of times, I've at least been able to take care of my physical being.
Well, I need to hand over the keys to this laptop to a 13 year old, but first I must pass along a text I received from my therapist as I was typing this. It is in reference to the huge, mother fucking snake I saw while hiking on Sat morning (I ended our session by telling her about it). In the totem, snakes represent change and transformation. Change as in moving forward, not backwards. They also represent healing. They change and transform with each shedding. Very interesting that they are literally crossing your path! Anyway, I thought that was very cool of her to send my way. We should all be so lucky to have a therapist as caring as this one.
Hope you're enjoying a nice of peace and tranquility. Cheers from Illinois.
