Change is good
Thursday, September 02, 2010
It has been awhile since I blogged. Things have been a little crazy at work and at home. There is so much to do here that I feel like I run into myself every time I go around a corner! But I guess the benefit of that is knowing there is plenty of work to keep me busy. I have a job and am grateful that I do.
The whole back to school routine has led to the craziness at home. When you have special needs kids that don’t do well with change, it just adds to the craziness! But thankfully everyone is back to school and finally starting to settle back in.
When I look at how difficult it can be for the kids to change, it makes me wonder if change is just as hard for me. It is easy to get comfortable with the way things are, but so much harder to get used to doing something different–like changing up the strength training exercises once in awhile, or finding a healthier way to prepare my favorite foods. I can find every excuse in the world to not make changes. But as I tell my kids the changes associated with returning to school are good ones, the little voice in the back of my head tells me I need to be giving myself the same pep talk when it comes to the changes associated with my health. I know I feel better when I exercise, eat healthier, get more sleep. . . . But then something gets me out of that pattern and it is right back to the old habits. Guess it’s time to start repeating the words "change is good" on a regular basis.
As always, thanks for reading! Have a great day!!
