Well, here we are officially back to work today and truly getting into the New Year. My friend Susan has begun a Monday mimi... "Healthy Habits Monday." Now, I'll be honest with you, the last thing I want to think about on Monday is "Healthy Habits." Most Monday's I'm so frazzled all I can think of is getting to Friday.
So, as I was thinking this morning of this new year and Healthy Habits, it occurred to me the healthiest thing I could do for myself this year does not have anything to do with food or exercise, although those are certainly important and truly need to be addressed. But if I am going to make a change in the way I eat and exercise, the first thing I have to address is my spiritual well being. I have let it go to pot!
Seriously, in the past 8 months I have been so busy working and trying to juggle being a Mom and Wife and my job... I have been frustrated, exasperated and down right depressed at times. Imagine that? I have been working so hard to do it on my own I forgot to just let go and ask God to just take care of it all.
Anyone else been there? Are you there right now?
So my Healthy Habit today involved a LONG talk with God. I asked first for forgiveness for being so selfish and stubborn. I thank Him over and over for my dear family and friends; for good health and safety. I asked that He carry the load I've tried so hard to drag behind me.
You know what? I already feel a few pounds lighter.
Do you have any ideas and plans for Healthy Habits this year? Go see Susan and tell everyone about it.
