Let things Flow

Seems the last couple weeks , winter has started to affect me and my thinking somewhat.. Staying positive seems a bit more difficult and attitude needs some adjusting.... as our fields are once again dusted in white and the wind is blowing showing it's strength so must I sip my coffee and maintain to think in a positive manner.... The basketball season is over for our guys and gals in our high school so that means I am not leaving the house many times throughout the week... Thoughts of visiting a antique shop comes to mind until I think it will cost me 50.00 in gas money to get there and I banish those thoughts... I guess this thought process doesn't help the economy but we all must do what we must....to stay within budgets... I keep reminding myself that routing out negative thoughts creates more energy for positive thinking... In positive thinking we must learn to accept the things that we most likely cannot change... this does include people.. If you weren't born a model... or a athlete or in a millionaires family... we must learn to play the game with the cards we were dealt { darn those 9's and 10's anyway... but if we get enough of them we could still become a winner..} and play the game the best we can... I am not in anyway saying that to avoid the challenges of our circumstances we are presently in, but rather the grace to find ways to live our lives to the fullest with our means.. It is all different for us, and the acceptance allows us to make it to the highest level we can be. In the thought process one must not always wait for someone else to fix things that may be wrong in our life. We must be aware when we tend to deflate from being tires, angry, or just frustrated, as I feel somewhat this morning, and learn to identify what is going on and add some more pleasures and treats and connect back to a natural state.. Learning to enjoy and not push, just let things flow, and enjoy the process. Actually just writing this and sharing seems to have helped me ... in sharing thought with you... Hope you can find a little something to make your day special today...

I know how you feel, Marietta, where a month ago we were feverishly working on projects that needed to be done, now we find ourselves uninspired and lethargic. The gray, rainy days here do not help. Spring is needed very much to bring the bounce back into our steps!

Hope you feel better for having blogged about it.

I too have been suffering the Winter Blues. This has been a long and very harsh Winter. I'm glad you feel better just getting this off your chest.
I'm sorry I haven't been around much ~ I just haven't been in the bloggy mood.
Sending hugs))

Marietta,
I am a huge proponent of the 'Serenity Prayer' and often finding problems are solved and disappointments are soothed by saying the SP...I remember trying to just change the routine of my day when I startede feeling glum...
take good care and try something new today!
