I Will

I must stop reacting.

I had a set back the other day. My reaction, once again, overshadowed the negative behavior of someone else. Lord when will I learn?

I will learn. I will eventually get there. Little by little, I will learn to quiet the incredible anxiety that explodes out of me in an ugly way. I will, one day, be firm in who I am and where my boundaries lie....when I do, I will quietly enforce them, standing firm in the comfort of knowing when too far is too far FOR ME regardless how someone else views it.

Meanwhile, I am allowed to make mistakes. I am a imperfect human being that continues to try to be the best I can be. Despite my errors, I am:

a good friend
a good listener
a pretty good mom
a forgiving ex-wife
a person with empathy
a loving sister
a devoted daughter (despite being an orphan)
a good business woman
a partner who keeps trying

I am breathing, easing the anxiety, gaining back my serenity. Serenity is a beautiful thing.

I am wishing you peace today.

  7. It takes constant practice to achieve our goals within ourselves. The thing for me is if I failed then I started over until I got it right or almost right. My wife is also my loudest cheerleader even when I mess up and that helps.
