TIRED OF LETTING MY LIFE SLIP BY

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

Here it is, tomorrow is June 2010, and I feel like I have wasted the past 4 months. Nevermind all the excuses. And believe me, I have a boat load full of excuses. But we all have reasons why we let the obstacles of everyday living get in the way of the things we want.

Well, enough of that. This is not meant to be a pity party, just an acknowlegement that I know I have been allowing my life to slip by without being an active participant. Oh sure, I do a lot of things, everyday, work, help people, get depressed, put other peoples desires above my own. But I seem to forget what is important to me and let that all slip out of being the most important focus for me.

I am going to remind myself to focus on me first. And one of the best ways I can keep myself focused is to show up on Spark and chart my exercise and calorie intake.

Thank you to everyone who has been sending me good wishes. I am sorry I was out of touch. Please know it was nothing personal. I have just been really experiencing the winter blahs and feeling like being invisible. I know this is totally couterproductive, but it is the thruth.

    Hey, at least you are being honest. We all experience times when our life is just slipping by. Now though you can turn that around because you know what the problem is. Good luck and keep on keeping on.

    Hey You!

    What a nice surprise to see your name in my inbox!

    Sorry to hear you are feeling down! I can relate somewhat... for the past month really! Doing what I need to do... doing lots infact... but my hearts just not quite in it!

    Keep your chin up Joann! This, too, shall pass!

    I'm sorta on a Spark Holiday... but still popping in... mostly for accountability and of course the support and friendship!

    I look forward to hearing from you more! I truly do miss you from time to time and think of you often!

    HUGZ!
