“That ‘no’ you’re getting from God may be to block you from taking the worst detour of your life. Don’t force a ‘yes’. He has a better ‘yes’ ahead.” – Beth Moore
“You will hear your Teacher’s voice behind you. You will hear it whether you turn to the right or the left. It will say, ‘Here is the path I want you to take. So walk in it.” – Isaiah 30:21 (NIRV)
Slowing down after a very busy couple of weeks. Thankful for today and rest.
Struggling today…prayers, good vibes and happy thoughts appreciated.
Feeling like I am traipsing through mud at the moment, but some movement is better than no movement, right?
A reminder that I don’t have to do it ALL, right? I am not a super wife, Mom, or co-worker, although I would like to think that I am.
I am exhausted from doing way too much…slowing down at least for today. I am enough.
I know that last month was Lupus Awareness month, but this popped up on my news feed on Facebook. I live between a 5-7 normally. Today I am more of a 10-11, and on the verge of more than that.
Pushing it takes so much out of me. Stress that shouldn’t be there – work – adds to my daily struggle.
Happiness is a Friday, and maybe some much needed rest.
No excuses but really…lupus and its symptoms hurt more than my body. There is so much that I want to do but physically sometimes just can’t.
I get into this terrible cycle of not calling because I don’t want to bother people…and then think it was just last week that I spoke with them. Terrible because months will go by that I haven’t spoken with them.
What do you feel guilt over? What do you do to overcome it?
I need to remember that those that love me understand. Some days are better than others in this belief.
So many things…so many unknowns. Please help if you can.
Closing this week, and this chapter.
Thank you for all the love.
Proud of myself? Nope…frustrated. Frustrated that I have regain, and it took having pictures to show me what I look like again. Frustrated that I have allowed myself to not follow the plan, and the tool that I fought hard to have help me.June 2015–Washington DC.I have to be proud that I am no longer there – right?February 2019 – Disney Princess 5k —I am SO VERY PROUD of myself for this. Why can’t I just be happy with myself? It is a daily struggle – constant. David asked if I was okay with my weight, and I told him “yes.” But I am not okay with it. I feel so much better than what I did five years ago. Can’t that be enough?
Thankful. Frustrated. Proud. Enough.
