“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)
This past weekend I had the privilege of several discussions with our daughter about life in general. This post came across my social media, and I instantly thought of her and our talks.
In reality, we don’t have to do anything for anyone…If we want to cook, shave, or wear pink – do it. Just don’t change yourself for someone else.
They deserve you – all of you – just the way you are.
Slowing down after a very busy couple of weeks. Thankful for today and rest.
Yep. Trying to change my thoughts. What do you dwell upon?
Feeling like I am traipsing through mud at the moment, but some movement is better than no movement, right?
I have been a heck of a flare. I have been pushing it, and my body is screaming at me. Getting through this week…prayers and good vibes or thoughts are welcome.
I am so very grateful for my circle, my friends, and my family. However, being aware of possible sinking isn’t a bad thing either.
Do you know who is rowing in your boat or drilling the holes?
I have been feeling overwhelmed the past couple of days.
I feel as though I have taken on too much…at work and at home. Nothing is getting a hundred percent of me. I feel as though I am not even giving seventy percent to anything.
Home or personal…class –ugh! I signed up for a couch to 5k…feeling completely defeated as my hips are killing me today. I should have been at practice last night but instead took a bath. Class…ya not currently in the mood which isn’t helping.
Work…too many things coming at once and I actually feel trapped. I am able to do my job but feel as though I can’t keep up with what is coming at me (not able to do what needs to get done at the best of my ability).
Too much right now…trying to breathe.
Yesterday. I had a lot going on at work, and wore the wrong shoes. So last night, my body hurt. One of the things to help me with my aches has been an Epsom Salt bath. I also use a bath bomb, one that is scented with Lavender to help relax me. Well, and a glass of wine. With my bones and Lupus, taking time to recoup is important. Understanding that my body needs to have a bit of help in healing.
What do you do to help you relax? What do you do to help you with your daily routine?
It is important to remember that I am there regardless of perfection. Being there to listen, love, learn and grow. Every day –to grow.
Blessed to be Carmen and Stephen’s Mom.
