I know that I have strung this violin about being stressed out at my job long enough. Although I love my violin(I actually used to play it for real) I have to put her down, send her for reconditioning. Violins can make the most beautiful music but they can also screech like a horror movie. So I have to restring my bow and get new strings so that I can start to make beautiful music again!

Truth is I hide behind that stress to justify my excuses. No time to exercise, no time to eat right WTH SERIOUSLY......NOT.... So why Dimi why???
What are you getting out of justifying your stressors.... This gives me the opportunity to NOT be accountable to myself BUT this is not good to or for me. I have to quit hiding, identify what is causing the stress and if I can not change the process I have to change my response to the stress. Eat healthy, get sleep, EXERCISE(LOL) meditate, breath, pray and LAUGH( I still do that probably would have been much worse if I was not laughing)

If I can put ALL of the effort into my job each day I am capable of putting some effort into myself
If I can take a few minutes to figure out how to make my week better at work and prepare for it I am capable of taking some time to plan and prepare for ME!

If I continue to allow the stressors of life to overtake me I will never get to the goal line....correction... CROSS OVER the goal line.

Happy Saturday! Regroup, Recharge and Renew!

Titians Rock!

    I think you have to forgive yourself for "violin playing" and give yourself quality goof-off time. Think of the most fun thing, non-productive activity. Read a book, phone a friend, paint your toe nails...give yourself down time.

    I like that quote " regroup, recharge, and refocus." that sounds like something I need to do. I've been on track now for three whole days. Not much to some but a lifetime to those of us who struggle from time to time. we will cross over our goal line, we just have to take a moment or two for us.

    I'm so sorry your job is stressing you. I'm very familiar with that kind of stress. Good luck making you a priority and I hope that will also help with the stress.

    Take care!

    You are so right. That stress is a killer and the secret to managing it is to find ways to cope other than eating.
    have you ever tried meditation?

    You may know the song you are singing, but bringing those items to the light diminishes the power of the excuses. So keep singing until hearing that song motivates you to do those things which take care of you!

    You are doing it...

    Good for you. At some point you just have to decide what you really want for yourself, and you're doing that! I'm not saying it will be easy, but it will be worth it!
