Good morning, friends,
I hope you are waking up (or already have) to a beautiful day. Looks like it’ll be rainy here for the next day or so – hard to complain about that when you drive by and the ponds are still low. (SO I WILL COUNT MY BLESSINGS)
I saw this picture this morning and it made me think – I see everyone posting what they are grateful for on their FB timelines – I am grateful everyday, I just keep it within.
I’ve felt overwhelmed for a while (Maybe since March 23rd) as several things in my life are changing. It’s hard for me to LET IT GO… There’s so much…
My goal, for now, is to let go of what I can’t control. I think that’s why this picture grabbed me this AM – I asked a friend the other day to help me with this. I’m opinionated and I just need to stop and breathe…
I’m working on the JUST BREATHE thing by counting to five first – I tried ten and couldn’t do it – HA! FIVE gives me a chance to think. I taught Weight Watchers for many years and one of the things I TAUGHT others was the five-finger rule, starting with my pinky – 1) do I want it, 2) do I need it, 3) do I want it, 4) do I need it, or… 5) can I live without it? WITH MY THUMB UP! Usually by the time I got to FIVE I had talked my self out of it. I can change what each finger means as long as the RULE OF THUMB is a positive outcome. 🙂 So, if you see me counting with my fingers and ending with a thumbs up – you’ll know why.
Today, I will listen to my heart in hopes that I can get back on track to the WHO I want to be. I will TRY to relax – NEVER been good at this… Today, I will attempt to let the day happen – who cares if the dust bunnies run amuck. I will sit back and watch them run! ha ha!
Today I will let Tate guide me to the end of the story. That doesn’t mean it’s DONE, It just means that the story – what Tate wants you to read is a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end. Then, my job will be to go in and clean it up – remove what is overkill – I’m learning that some of you think I give too much story – and ENHANCE what I keep.
Today I WILL…
Blessings and love,
