This isn't who I am. There is a cranky, moody, hot-flashing, not-sleepng, out-of-sorts woman who is inhabiting my body lately. I don't like her; it's not who I am.For the moment, however unfortunate, she is who I am.
I feel the need to step back and reflect a bit. I feel over-committed (or may I should be committed?!) and need some solitude to get back on track. I am easing up on my committments and trying to make committments to myself. I will walk more; I will eat more sensibly; I will seek to regain the proper focus and perspective in my life.
A few weeks ago our Pastor made the statement that we should all be able to finish this sentence: "The purpose of my life is....". I will find the answer to that question and adjust my priorities accordingly.
Steven Covey said "You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage -- pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically -- to say 'no' to other things." I have these words posted on the wall of my office at work. I will read them more often and act upon them.
This is the, somewhat borrowed, wisdom from the woman who is inside here somewhere. I'll find her, just wait and see......
