Life shouldn't be so STRESSFUL!!

Thursday, February 13, 2020

Hello beautiful sparkies!! Just wanted to post about my day yesterday and share my thoughts. I kept within my calories but was sore most of the day from lifting weights. I've learned that bananas really help with sore muscles. Just wanted to note that! 😜 Last night, I went to a card making class and had a lot of fun! We laughed a lot. I'm a big believer of happy thoughts. BUT, if you would have seen me around 3ish you could possibly accuse me of road rage 🙄. Let me add that this is totally out of my character and I just don't do this. So, there's this particular stretch that I have twice been passed in a single lane. I don't cuss...but after the 2nd time this has happened to me I would have laid someone out if they were in my face. I had my son...I felt threatened. Put in danger for a few seconds of someone else to be ahead of me. I prayed about it all...and I'm honestly ashamed that I got SO mad in front of my son. He has his permit and what kind of example am I giving him? So, I vow to do better. Next time...I'm taking pics and calling it in. No birdies flying...no fowl language... no rise in blood pressure...or evil thoughts of "punch face". Lol🤣 Life shouldn't be so stressful...it can be at times but how we handle it matters. Reflecting on my amazing life...card making...healthy eating...and drinking chai. I want to be a better person. Stronger. I had black eyes peas, brown rice, an egg white turkey omelet, cherry tom, kimchi, and a relaxing cup of spicy chai! My brunch 😋 Will post a pic of my cards...😁😁

    Thank you for being honest not only with yourself but others . I love how you expressed it though . emoticon After the anger had diminished . As a believer myself while raising my kids and dealing with people , who for some reason decided that is was ok to put others in danger while driving . The LORD wanted my verbal assaults on such people to stop ..... and yes especially with my3 kids listening . In a quiet time He gave me this verse . James 3:9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father , and with it we curse men who are made in His likeness .
    I am back to practicing this verse out loud even though the kids are grown and on their own .They did ask me why I cited that verse one time ... my answer was simple .. I have to show you guys that there are better ways to deal with others choices .
    Love you food btw ! Thank for sharing and all of MOMS know exactly how you felt for sure . Have a really blessed day.
