Just When I Thought It Was Good
As usual I went and overspent at Christmas and now I'm paying the price. I'm not sure if it was the over spending on the kids, or that I was off of work for a week and a half w/no pay just before Christmas (due to sickness) or the fact that I made a New Year's resolution to be glad in all things, that has me in this predicament. It's probably a combination of the three.
Why does it seem like whenever you make a promise, you then get tested in that area?
I'm not talking a little bit of testing, but A LOT! The last few days I've felt like I'm beating my head against a brick wall. Every time I tried to do something, bam, nope, it wouldn't work out.
I would repeat, "Be glad in all things...and this too shall pass!"
But somehow it's easier said than done. On Monday I finally gave up before I broke down and did what I used to do in stressful times...took a nap. Sleep has always been my escape. I woke up and felt refreshed, I re-grouped and started all over again, trying to tackle the mountains in front of me.
Today's actually a little better, I will push through this and, "Be glad in ALL things," because I know that worrying wont change anything except maybe make me sick. Besides, everything always works out in the end. I just need to learn a lesson I guess.
Which is really what life's all about right? LEARNING & GROWING day by day!
