I've had some not so cool things happen around me lately, and yesterday it really started to get me down. Then it got me down further, and as I thought about those things and worried about them I spiraled down further and further. Part of the problem was Kira's favorite saying "when the world looks black....." I won't finish it for those of you who haven't heard it. Anyway, last night I realized that there was nothing I could do about the things that were bothering me. I could have absolutely no effect on the outcome of any of those things, except to pray about them. I've heard this before, and I'll probably forget this again, but it's OK to leave it in HIS hands. I just asked for help to let go and be happy again. As much as part of me felt it was my duty to suffer during these situations, it's not, and it wasn't helping anything. I was able to be happy today. All day.
I am a fitness instructor, AFAA certified personal trainer, and a mom of three. Most of the time I'm vegan, with some crazy "free" meals a couple times a week. I have a love/hate relationship with my yard depending on how much work it needs! I grew up in San Diego, and love the ocean. I scuba, but sometimes have panic attacks snorkeling. Given the choice between the superpowers of invisibility and flight, I'd pick flight in a heartbeat. I love my husband, and his patience with my crazy habit of getting into something that's well over my head.
