I apologize for getting the link up posted late. Honestly, I sat at the computer for the longest time and nothing filled my head or my heart. NOTHING. I thought perhaps I would share another worship song but I really wanted to write something meaningful. After a long and hard day at the office I am exhausted and again, nothing is coming to my brain. So here I am sharing a few more random thoughts about life in general. Oh and there might be an affiliate link or two, just in case you want to check something out. And if you make a purchase, it only helps to keep this little blog running.
It’s okay to admit when you are angry. I think I’ve been angry about a lot of things for a long time. There are so many things I still don’t understand about the twists and turns my life has taken. I know God doesn’t want me to be angry. I know I am the only one who can change the way I feel about things. I’m realizing how stubborn I am sometimes. I think I’m afraid to feel anything so I hide behind the anger. But admitting we are angry and not okay is a first step toward healing. I love this song by Plumb that reminds me that it’s okay not to be okay.Admitting we are angry and not okay is a first step towards healing. #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet
When a mild case of depression leaves you feeling guilty about so many others who struggle severely. I still haven’t gone to the doctor about this depression and anxiety thing that rears it’s ugly head from time to time. I think it’s because I feel as if I don’t really need medication. But honestly, I think I do, but I believe there are so many others who struggle that need it more. When I read about the journey of others on this road, I think the only difference between them and me is that I can somehow manage to get out of bed in the morning and function. But still there is a cloud of sadness that moves in and camps around me some days.
Overeating can be a direct result of a dissatisfied life. I admit it, and I’m working on it. My clothes have gotten tighter over the last few weeks and that is disappointing after I was making steady strides towards weight loss. I don’t believe in diets, but I do believe in paying attention to what I am putting in my body. I often eat out of boredom or a state of unhappiness. I am hoping to get control over this soon.
Meal planning is hard work sometimes. Since I started my Weekly Spread feature here on the blog, my meal planning has been hit or miss. Sometimes it’s because I don’t have the money to plan, other times it’s because both my daughter and I draw a blank when we sit down to discuss the menu. I am hoping to get better at it. In the meantime, I will at least feature a weekly recipe for you to try if you’d like.
I’m learning to reach for my essential oils before I reach for the aspirin. My head hurts often and I can feel the stress that my body is carrying in my neck. Motrin was once my biggest friend, until I got my essential oils Top 6 Roll-On Set. Now I reach for the Tension Relief Synergy and it’s not too long before my tension headaches are gone.
