I Haven't Forgotten You
Last Update: Apr 7, 2017
I don't know if this is going to reach the right people, but there are members here who are waiting on comments, return follows, and google+ activity from me. The last couple of days have been a whirlwind of personal things I'm having to handle and it has me stretched thin between managing life, my local business, and this project.
I have not forgotten anyone and as soon as I have time - possibly not until Monday but hopefully before - I will get back to everyone and return the favor for every single comment. (I still have 8 waiting for approval - the comment exchange here is just amazing!!!)
I was sooooo stressed out yesterday. My solution to stress is to talk to people - it just gets me in a totally different frame of mind. An associate of mine said this during our conversation:
Stress shows you your character. And then lets you develop it.
I had to slow down and realize that on the other side of this, my character was being tested and developed. The strongest people I know are the ones who have faced repeated obstacles. So rather than worrying about how stressful the situation is right now, I can take a deep breath, a step back, and ask myself what kind of person I want to be faced with this hurdle?
I don't have to make myself frantic. I don't have to worry about others thinking maybe I don't have it all together after all. I am me, living life, doing the best I know to do, and always willing to learn to do better. Exhale. Much, much better.
I was told to exhale in preparation for a pandemic I blogged about yesterday Jennifer. It's always good advice whatever the occasion!
Do not worry about what others think of you, you can never please everybody. I am 57 and the older you get, the more you are realizing, stressing out about things doesn't do anyone any good.
Take care dear:)
You are an inspiration for all of us!
Keep on believing in yourself.
You have proven that you turn lemons into lemonade!
Thank for your post!
I wouldn't worry about it, Jennifer...you'll be fine...and WE are fine, too!

Actually, we all have the ability to feel any way we want to at anyt given time. Just stop for a second, take a couple of deep breaths, and tell ourselves how we are going to feel. We can't just let our mind take us anywhere it wants to without our permission!
