Sunday Thoughts

Love where I live…

It’s been an exciting week for me, with lots of changes I will talking about next week. Overall good things that have come from hard work and excellent leadership examples.

Today I needed to rest, and take this in. Tomorrow will be busy, but ready for the opportunity that it brings.

Blessings!

Sushi

It was National Sushi 🍣Day yesterday. I saw that it was trending on Twitter and talked David into going to dinner.

It was so good. I ended up eating the sashimi (no rice), and one piece of the California roll.

Blessings.

Stay

unnamed

Lately I have been struggling with what others say I don’t have.  Today I woke up with what I have accomplished.  My positivity came back.  I am staying in the direction that I feel God has led me on since the beginning.  Just because I don’t like what I am hearing, or what others are saying doesn’t mean that God may lead me to stay the course instead.

College has been hard (for me with working full time).  Most of the time it is too much work, that it is too hard.  I want to walk away –sometimes (okay most of the time).  But I come back to “I am not a quitter.  I am a finisher!”   I need to put blinders on and concentrate on the end goal.  Just because I won’t finish college in the typical four years doesn’t mean I won’t finish.  A seven-and-a-half year college plan is a goal, right?  Semester after semester, just to keep plowing way, one class here, maybe two classes there.  Then one day, I will wake up and realize I have a degree.  But I won’t get there if I quit.

I won’t get to my weight goal if I keep thinking that eating cheese puffs and Chardonnay for dinner is healthy either.  I need to put the green, leafy vegetables in my mouth, drink water, and exercise for the plan to work.  Again, the goal of weight loss isn’t easy.  My gastric sleeve surgery was a tool to help me lose the weight, not for me to gain it back in a year.  I didn’t go through surgery to fail.

Every day is a new opportunity to succeed.  I felt deflated yesterday.  I cried yesterday.  Self pity is not pretty, but we all go through it.  Today is a new day.  I am planting new seeds.

Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. — Galatians 6:9 ESV

Beginning again.

Deflated

Yesterday afternoon I became deflated.  I am 95 percent of the time a happy, encouraging person.  I try to be that way with others, looking to the glass half full, to be positive.  God has a plan, and I work that plan.  I might not always agree with that plan, but I hang in there whatever the case might be.

And, I believe that He does have a plan.  I just feel flat.  That everything that I have worked for means nothing without a degree (work).  Of course, where I work is a state college, and that degree matters, and I so know that!  Don’t get me wrong.  It takes courage to say this –I am sad.

I have a technical degree from (an accredited school) thirty years ago that won’t transfer.  Again, that is okay.  My past brought me here, and I am thankful of my path for it has made me who I am.  But I am feeling worthless today.

I will be fine.  I will get through this.  There are much worse things out there, and we are fine!! I am not stating any of this for pity, or attention.  I am stating this for reality.  Because not everyday is bright and shiny.   I treasure every moment, and love my struggles (even algebra).  Oh, and I am still taking classes.  I will get that degree – it may take me a while – but I will get it.

So, no pity. Just needed to vent.  And this too shall pass.

shall pass

Thanks.
