Rockstar

Ya, I am struggling. To stay positive, to be encouraging, to be who I want to be.

Life happens. I want to snack, have wine, not exercise-stuff, that isn’t positive or encouraging. But reality.

I struggle. Struggle with the day to day, routine crap that can tie you down and sink you in a second.

So, in bed by 9pm and taking all I can to get me through the day.

Today is new. Beginning again. Every day is a new day.

Blessings.

No

How often do you say no? And when? Why?

I feel as though I need to say “no” more often. I had said that I am feeling overwhelmed, but have decided that is truly correct. I am overwhelmed.

Too many things are stressing me, and I am not dealing with anything well.

Taking a social media break…I will prep a post for Wednesday.

Love and blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

“Show courage.  People need to see what it looks like.  Show it.  Then feel it.” – Beth Moore

“Stay alert, stand firm…show courage, be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NET)

I need to be more aware of this.  I don’t think that I have courage in most situations, but looking back on an event in my life, I most certainly did.  Can I see if I showed courage? Not really.  Did others see it in me?  I hope so.  I pray so.

I want to show love and kindness on a daily basis.  That is my goal.  No matter the situation, I want someone to say that I have been kind and shown love—that His light shines through me.

Blessings and love.

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.
