This blog is ending...(see the post below this one)


Biting off more than you can chew...

Has this ever happened to you?....Well, it certainly has been that way for me. Because I have loved to write, I found myself creating 14 different blogs since 2007, each on different subjects. I can not keep up with has overwhelmed me, and so I find myself not posting to any of them for lengths at a time. So....the best solution for me, is that I have to end some of the blogs. It has been a hard decision on which ones to end, also. SORRY, BUT THIS BLOG I AM ENDING... The following links are to my most favorite and fun blogs, the 5 that I am still keeping... ... ... ... ...

Frustration with myself

I fall into these little ruts of doing or saying things that I really don't like myself for...and it really bothers me, not to mention that it gets me into trouble, sometimes. When it happens repeatedly, I wonder why I allow myself to fall into these ruts. It seems plain enough to me that if there is something that frustrates me about myself, then just plain CHANGE....simple as that. But it takes REALLY wanting to change, for the change to take is not that easy...but it is do-able. At least I need to congratulate myself for recognizing that I do these things that I don't feel good about. That seems to be a plus feel good about THAT !!! Next....I need to have a plan on how I am going to change. I made a list of WHAT I want to change, HOW I will accomplish it...which mainly consists of very conscientiously being aware of what I say or do. By the way, that can be a little difficult, as I have a habit of just blurting out stuff...not good. But hey, don't let it being hard to do, be discouraging. In the end....I find it does work...and I am making progress....and I am proud of myself. And....I am getting into less trouble, which is a very good thing, indeed !!!

There is real truth in the comment that to overcome our fear, we need to face it. My fear of cancer was just like that. The fear just about did me in, but I could see that I did not have many choices, so I faced the fear, did what I had to do, and found out that I was a lot stronger than I thought I was. The spiritual help I received was the element that gave me the courage and strength to go through it all.

Letting people "get to you"

I have recently discovered that when someone does or says something to me that hurts my feelings, or causes me to dwell on it for quite awhile thinking "why don't they like me", I found a solution, for myself. I took a notebook and began writing all my feelings and thoughts about the situation. I really let my hair down, so to speak. I said nothing badly towards the other person, just wrote about me. I also wrote that I forgave that person and that perhaps some of my human weaknesses were to blame...realizing that I am NOT perfect. When I was finished, I amazingly felt a LOT better and was able to "let go" of that, so that it does not bother me anymore.

Find the Good

A few weeks ago, I was driving to a Doctor appointment, and because I was frustrated at having to go to my doctor’s new place of practice, which was twice as far as it was, I was running a little late...well needless to say I was fussing, fuming and agitated. All of a sudden a thought came to my mind, reminding me that I was driving on a very beautiful scenic mountainous road and that I should just enjoy the beauty of the scenery and stop fussing. The thought also included counsel to start finding the good in any given situation, time and place.

Well, of course that thought instantly humbled me and made me take stock of my behavior. I will tell you, that little gem of a thought has made a big difference whenever I begin to get agitated at something. I calm down and remind myself to find something good about the situation.
