Trying a new way.....

Tonight I am going Nordic Walking...

it's like cross country skiing, only no snow..sounds like it should be fun and energizing so I'm going to give it a try.

I'm trying a few new things to try and alter my mood.... I've decided that I can say "NO" to people, I can be an active spectator and not an active participant when I don't need to be, I've decided to keep my expectations to a reasonable level, I've also decided my health is really important and I need to vary my exercise and try to really, really watch what I eat.

This is taking a lot of prayer and active consciousness to not overreact and to be mindful of my actions and what is important and what I have control of and what I don't!

It's taking a lot of effort, but I think in the end it will so payoff!!

Also, Have to add that I'm a Glee fan.. and boy did I cry last night!! Great show and can't wait for the new season!!!

Have a good day!!

Feeling Better

So, I am feeling better today, even after a very bleak and rainy weekend here in Maine. We even had a tornado in Auburn,, that doesn't happen here.. it was one weird thunderstorm! Getting my rooms upstairs done, hanging out with my daughter and just getting out of the house on Saturday, made me feel much better, (the doctor visit helped too!!).
I know life can throw a curve once in a while, but with me it happens so fast and comes on with no warning.. I hate it and my husband has a hard time coping with it as well. I think he feels helpless by not being able to make things better. He does know it will work and I'll be back to "normal" soon enough, but it still makes it difficult for him to understand.
High Anxiety,, that's what you might call it... I've been dealing with this for a long time and it is better but sometimes I get blindsided by it with not one ounce of warning.
So, I'm back and feeling myself and getting things done. Back to Zumba tonight and finishing up the upstairs this week and putting my house all back together.. should be a very productive week indeed!!!
