Change Is Hard

Thursday, February 12, 2015

It is hard to change your habits when you get stuck in a rut, That seems to be my problem of late. I started out good then went back to the same old way again. I have not donny exercise today yet and I have to go to a Ladies meeting at my friend's church tonight yet. Today is the day when I see if their attitudes towards me have changes since I was there over a year ago. I went with my friend to their prayer meeting and the other ladies seemed to ignore me the whole time. I planned on going to their Ladies Retreat in May but if they still act the same way then I will call it off. My weight stayed the same this week. Not enough exercise before. My sister-in-law is determined that I should move to Greenbay by her for a job. I told her politely i will not move in with my brother and herand I will not be moved by them again. Last time stuff was broken after we moved. it was my brother who was shoving the stuff around. My friends and church are here and so are my doctors. I am sick and tired of being pushed around by her. It seems she thinks i ought ot quit school because of my unemployment problem. If I quit now i will have to pay it all back right away. She does not un derstand what being a Christian is all about. I told her politely to drop it. This is my life not hers. I think she is just worried about me asking my brother for money to help out.

    You are right to not go back to being around negativity. It would help to talk to her as little as possible. Friends, faith, doctors and being comfortable where you are is very important to your well being. I wish for you the best.

    Just a thought - what about your attitude toward them? I love this bit that someone in a 12 step program shared. It's funny but true: God give me the courage to accept the people I can't change, the strength to change the ones I can--and the wisdom to know that the only one I can change is ME.

    I sure do know what you mean about how hard it is to get back on board and stay there. I got going again in December, and lately have had days where it's really hard to keep it up. God keeps reminding me of Galatians 6:9.

    Thanks for stopping by my page. It's always good to hear from you. emoticon and happy valentine's day! emoticon

    We all have bad days. Sounds like yours is today. Don't let others take your power. We can't let other people make us miserable and so down that we can't focus on our goals. Think positive, stick to your plan and be grateful for every day. Hope your Friday will be a good one. emoticon
