How Easily We Forget

So, I’ve been blogging a lot lately about my “word” for the year…RELAX.

I’ve really been doing a good job too.

For all of three weeks.

And then Wednesday happened.

Oh.

My.

Word.

Something happened that led to me reading more into something that led to me getting upset that led into me getting angry.

The day spiraled downward until I left work frustrated and exhausted.

Ever the reflective one, I quickly began thinking about what had gone wrong.

It didn’t take me long to realize that I had made much over something that, in reality, wasn’t much.

Isn’t that the case…especially where women’s hearts are concerned?

We think more with our emotions and less with our brains.

Yeah.

I’m disappointed; however, I am going to cut myself some slack.

Change comes about over time.

It is a process.

It is a journey in which we take a few steps forward, pat ourselves on the back for a job well done, and then are humbled when we fall flat on our rear ends when we experience setbacks.

By the time I got home, I’d posted the following update on Facebook:

I forgot my mantra to relax. My day wasn’t the best. Lesson learned. I am hereby relaxing and not worrying again.

I know I’m kidding myself a little.

I know I’ll worry about something…I probably already have between the time I composed this post and the time when you’re reading it.

Still, I continue to remind myself that I need to be purposeful and daily make the choice to RELAX and trust God.

I’m so grateful that He is a loving God who forgives.

I need to learn from His example and be forgiving of myself.

This is another process and one that I am starting to make head roads in.

  1. You sound so much like me! However, like you, I’m working hard at worrying less and trusting God more. We’ll get there…we just have to believe and TRUST!

  2. Don’t forget to BREATHE! 🙂
