Attitude Adjustment

When I sat down tonight to read the new posts for the day, I already had in mind what I was going to write in my new post. But I'm happy to say I've changed my mind. I was all set to complain about some things that were bothering me and that I was mad about. Then after reading some very inspirational posts tonight I've changed my attitude. In particular, I'd like to thank Joan at http://50somethingwoman.blogspot.com/ and Stephanie at http://nieniedialogues.blogspot.com/ . And then I actually inspired myself after reading Amber Rose at http://opinionatedarewe.blogspot.com/ I gave her some words of advice in a comment, and I made myself realize that I needed to take my own advice. Sometimes knowing something and actually doing it are two different things. But I'm going to make my actions speak now.

I was very upset after hearing that my DIL's brother, Ronnie, is moving back here upon his release from the hospital tomorrow from his very serious car accident with my son's car. But now I've decided I need to pray for Ronnie's health and recovery and hope that this doesn't affect Austin and Melissa's life, marriage and happiness. There, now I can release it. That's all I can do. It's not my problem.

As I told Amber, a rule of life that I try to follow is to eliminate all that is toxic in my life. Whether it be food, people, thoughts, habits, etc. Doing what you know to be best can be difficult and you need to be reminded once in a while. So my thoughts need to turn to the positive. I can feel the weight lift a little already. I'm still being troubled by these headaches and I think a change in my thinking and attitude may help this. I may even sleep a little better, too. I'll let you know tomorrow how this works out.
