Life sometimes just feels so full. Sometimes too full. I am wondering how it got that way. Since having health problems for almost a year now, I quit my job in the spring and I still feel like I am running around like a crazy person. I quit so that I could slow life down. But at the end of the day I continue to ask myself, "What did I accomplish today?" And sometimes I can't think of anything but yet my day felt so full.

Why do I choose to do this to myself each day? I know I need to slow down. I started physio today and yikes am I sore right now. I felt really good this morning when I came home but right now I feel really tight and sore, and well, like a truck hit me. Physiotherapists really know how to hurt a person. :) But I know that I will continue to get better from this. That all of this pain will help me in the long run.

Kinda sounds like how God works in us a lot of the time doesn't it? Well, it is how he works in me most of the time. You know the character building exercises that He puts in our lives, so that we can continue to grow to me more like Him? It really sucks when you are in those places in your life, but then in the end when you can see what you were learning and how it helped you. In a weird and yet wonderful way it all seems worth it in the end.

I guess that is what physio is going to do for me. I am not going to feel like a 90 year old woman anymore. I will be able to run and play with my girls again. I wish I wasn't in this place right now but I know that I am taking the right steps on the right path to get to where I need to be. I just have to figure out how to slow down this ride of life that seems like it is spinning out of control. I know I need to cut somethings out of my life, but where do you cut? Who do you cut?

I was talking to my husband about having to cut somethings. And he asks me, that if I decided to leave something, who is going to loose out from having me involved? It is interesting to look at things from the larger perspective. I start cutting things that I wouldn't mind losing, but what effect is that going to have on other people? There is more to life than ourselves. Even though that is what the media likes to teach us - 'Life is all about me!" Well, someone else is always going to be affected by every decision that we make. Man! I thought I had difficult decisions to make before, but now it got even worse!

So now my brain hurts along with my back. So I am going to bed, and hopefully when I wake up tomorrow I will try to take my day bit by bit and enjoy the day with my daughter and not worry about the next thing on my to-do list that I feel I need to cross off. Hey, I bought a new purse today! Life is good!
