I am trying to regain control over my life I feel
I have lost it..
so this has been my outlet of late..
It isn't a good thing to wake up one day and reality hit you..
Someone else is at the Wheel..
and YOU don't like the person in charge.
These are some places where I have started..
Continual prayer. I need to know I am not alone in my new endeavors to change
Review my goals weekly to determine progress. When I complete goals I will set new goals at a higher level.
Keep a journal of my daily activities. Notice what precedes a decline in control. Try to avoid these things if possible. Increase activities that make ME happy.
Practice positive self-talk techniques. Instead of thinking,"I'm already late, so there's no point in trying anymore." think, "This is late, but I'm getting it done and following through with a commitment."
Slow my response time by taking several deep, cleansing breaths before reacting. I am an OVER reactor..
I need to take a step back.. in this area
Find an outlet for stress. I am also, considering stress-reducing activities, such as yoga.
Start meditation every day. I had been doing this at one point my sister started me
with some meditation books, and Cd's and now I have decided It is paramount in
my mental health.
Reading the books I know bring me peace.
If you have any Ideas for more control in your lives that might help me.
let me know!
