Oh my golly!

Saturday, January 13, 2018

So this week was busy, super busy... and I didn't get on Spark as much as I had in the couple of weeks prior. But for all the "I didn'ts", I also had a bunch of "I dids".

I didn't track my food progress... but I did stay mindful of what I ate, and had a healthy week because of it.

I didn't stick to my 5k cardio plan... but I did join new yoga classes and attended three days this week. I also was able to successfully complete all the moves and fell in love with the new environment (I have been doing yoga, but not at this particular studio)

I didn't always get enough sleep... okay... I don't have a good "I did" here... I really tried to go to bed at a decent time, but work was insane this week... it is what it is though and I will try to do better!!

The thing that I am most proud of this week though is my attitude. Over the last few years I had allowed a group of people to enter my life who were destructive and negative. When I did not want to "become them" they turned on me and hurt me, badly. I was in shock. I had never been bullied by a group of people in this way and could not believe it was suddenly happening in my 30s! I have been able to remove most of this group from my life, but a couple of them I didn't think I could get away from, until this week.
You see, I met them with indifference. I wasn't rude, I was quite pleasant, I just let them understand that their behavior was not going to define my days any longer. I could tell they were confused, I took away their power over me... something that maybe I should have developed the strength to do earlier. And while I was indifferent towards them, inside I also forgave them for their actions. Not for them, but for me. It has been an amazing feeling and it felt good to be back in control of me!

And all this change in perspective and situations as definitely allowed me to enjoy everything more. I am seeing my life from a different angle with everything I do. =) These last two weeks have been wonderful, this next week has been wonderful, and I truly believe this year will be wonderful!

    What an uplifting blog you have posted. You have made a lot of significant 'dids' , especially in removing the power your former 'friends' had over your happiness and emotional well being. That is great! Forgiveness is great! Celebrate your ongoing success. I am cheering you on. emoticon
