The Wagon Ran Over Me
Yeah. Health Habits. I pretty much fell off the wagon. And then the wagon ran over me. I wish it had lobbed off about 20 lbs, but losing weight is not NEARLY as enjoyable as gaining it can be…
I’ve been in a mental struggle about some things – journaling hasn’t come easy to me, and neither has writing. Partly due to a lack of sleep – Curly has been struggling with sleep for several weeks now – and partly due to still trying to order all of my responsibilities and things into good working order.
I need an Alice. You know – ALICE, from the Brady Bunch. So I can pursue sculpting or singing or whatever else it was that Carol Brady did amongst her child-raising…
But reality dictates that (for the most part) I have to be the one to step up, wash my dishes 2 or 3 times a day (or whatever is necessary), conquer Mt. Washmore, and get my house and family in some sort of good, stable, easy-to-maintain routine.
Which is my BIGGEST problem.
What is it exactly that keeps me from getting there?
I am no Martha, and am pretty much all Mary – so I get that. But I am not blessed with ALICE or ROSIE or anything else to actually DO the chores for me – so I have to find a happy medium. And every day is another challenge to get up – after interrupted sleep – and be the motivating force, the light on the stand in our home.
And then I found THIS.
Go ahead, go check it out. I’ll wait.
What did you think? Sometimes I think other bloggers – other BIG bloggers – whom I don’t know or interact with in any way – MUST read my blog because they go and post something that JUST FITS and is JUST what I need.
I LOVE the Sanity Manifesto.
It’s exactly what I needed to get a second wind and pick up where I needed to, and Let Go where I needed to.
And I also discovered my ONE word phrase this weekend. Let Go is my theme for the year, cuz God wants to give me so much more than I have grasped at for so long.
But He also whispered to my heart, that He wants me to live in my MOMENTS.
More on that to come…
