I feel like most of my posts are promising to catch up and then I rarely find the time to do so. Blogging is therapeutic and I should unload my mind a little more often. My crazy is definitely starting to show.
Can you believe I’m hiding out in my bedroom? My seven year old is grounded from TV for ignoring me more than once today while watching it, the toddler is throwing fits. I often forget he’s only one because he can do so many things two year olds can do. So I put him in the crib in hope that he will just take a freaking nap!
Last year ended on an up note. I quit smoking and I am actively trying to cut down my soda intake. I feel like these baby steps will help me to find happiness. A healthy body fuels a healthy mind or something like that, right? On the bright side I lost all the weight I gained while quitting smoking, now I need to just work on the weight from the binge eating for the last 15 years.
I decided not to have resolutions this year. They hold you back, give you a goal, but when you don’t meet that goal you feel disappointed in yourself. So I’m just gonna continue trying to get healthy and not resolve anything. Too much pressure makes me want to crawl back under the covers and wait the year out…that’s not really a healthy cycle.
So many great opportunities are within my grasp at this point. I cut out what wasn’t working in my life, and it helped. Granted I now have no friends I hang out with in my town, but its less stress than trying to please all the people who just spend their time taking from me.
I strongly advise doing that. Finding the things that are working for you and embracing them, and working on the things that aren’t. You only have one life, live it to the fullest, but remember quality of life is important too. Take a moment to smell the books, bask in the sun, and dance like no one is looking.
