Sometimes the changes aren't the ones we are expecting. Choices we make will take us in one direction or another. I've never been great at change. Things are settling down again. We have roots for the first time in our 17 1/2 years together. No more military uprooting us. No more worry about is this the right choice. We made the choice, bought the house and now we are working on learning how to be settled for longer than 4 years (our longest at one duty station together). We have been moved in for 7 months and I am still having a hard time believing, "This is mine, I can paint and change things the way I want them!" Those things are all part of the process. The stress and frustration that got me to this point took it's toll. When I did workout I tended to over do it and stress my body even more. My mantra as I get back into this is going to have to be "Baby steps!". Someone smack me if I get frustrated with what I can't do instead of what I can do please. Remind me that I'm blessed to have the ability to do the things that I can and that someone out there wishes they could do half of what I'm able bodied enough to do. Please, just remind me, "Baby steps!".
