Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Feeling irritable and emotional. Don't want to deal with difficult people and at times I have no choice. For the most part I try to avoid these types of people but given the nature of life, we all have them to deal with sometimes, sometimes we are even those difficult people! When I am feeling like that I know it is a sign I need to get away from people and head for the woods and nature. Animals are amazing at dissipating this type of thing as well. No words need be spoken and communication is very clear. Animals don't play games or politics or manipulate emotions or have control issues.At times I even prefer animals to people for this very reason.
I remember being pretty quiet as a child and sometimes I still am even though I have always written in journals and used that as my outlet for working things out rather than continuing to toss them around in my head.
I have never liked confrontational people and don't like having to confront people although at times I have when forced to. Mostly I would rather walk away and let them be. I have never found that it is possible to change someone elses view point when they already have their mind made up anyway and so figure it is a waste of negative energy.You will never please all the people all the time and if you do then you have issues you need to deal with. Being amicable or ameable is one thing but catering to someone with control issues is another. I am not willing to jump through hoops for someone who I can't please anyway. I have never been one to start a fight but have been known to end them. Sometimes that involves just walking away and saying nothing. Other times it is good to speak your mind but not when you are angry. So for now I am saying nothing because I am still angry. This has to do with something from a year ago and I knew this person was mad but did not know why until yesterday and they are not the one who told me. I prefer direct communication and I also prefer people who talk about ideas and dreams rather than complaining and nit picking.
As far as my detox, well I am resolving to get back on track and not let anything or anyone distract me from my goals. Life happens and I am striving for excellence rather than perfection. At times I struggle with emotional eating but I am trying to at least make it something legal that I am eating. Had an epic fail this week but not going to beat myself up for it.
Identifying my weaknesses and my weak points is crucial. I wish I had someone as an accountability partner when I feel vulnerable but I really don't so will have to learn to deal with it myself. Taking a walk sometimes helps, someone suggested brushing my teeth, changing my focus is probably best but when in the emotion of the moment it is not always easy to think rationally or logically so that is why I need a plan ahead of time that is written out and in a place were I can see it so that I instantly go to it when those moments happen. And they do happen for all of us. Not a good sentence structure there but you get my point.
Taking a big deep breath and resolving to my commitment of a healthier lifestyle and choosing healthier relationships as well.
Blessings to you all on this beautiful Sunday afternoon. Keep it raw and keep it real!:O)
