Let's Be Real

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change.” —Wayne Dyer

I'll be honest here, I've been struggling.  Maybe longer than I thought. 

I let my mood dictate my day. I let others dictate my mood. I sweep things under the rug. I let my circumstances control the outcome. I work harder at other people's problems than they do. I procrastinate. I feel sorry for myself. I argue. I waiver. I sit on the fence. I worry. I repeat the past.

All of the above are physical distractions, mental garbage, and emotional hamster wheels. 

So today I challenge myself to:

  • Limit distractions
  • Take out the garbage 
  • Change the hamster wheel into a long walk
  • Not worry about what others think
  • Turn an emotional page
  • Let other people's chips fall where they may
  • Stay focused on Grandma
  • Don't look back, I'm not going that way

A river cuts through rock, not because of it's power ...

                                                                                                                 ... because of it's persistence.
