Perspective: The good, the bad and why do I pick on myself.
Thursday, July 08, 2010
My power went out a couple of times last night. One of my kids played with my atomic clock and changed the time zone. So this morning I got up at what I thought was 5:45 to call my friend at 6 am to walk. She asked me if I knew what time it was. I said I thought it was 6. She said no it was 5. I told her I would call back. She opened her house up to cool it off thinking how happy she was that I had called. I went to sleep wondering how I could make a mistake. I missed the alarm the second time and then when I did wake up the power was off. It made it a challenge to get my husband out the door for work.
I was out today looking at people. I saw this several ladies in several shapes and sizes that just struck me as being pretty. They were all very different and I wondered to myself how I could look at so many different people and marvel at the blessing of being so diverse and yet I don't consider myself beautiful. I really need to change my perspective. I am working on not beating myself up for being human. My friend was very thankful meanwhile I was irritated with myself. I guess now it is kind of funny. I noticed that it was darker but just did not pay attention. I usually wake up after I am on the treadmill or exercise bike.
It is hot here today. So I hope where ever you are you stay happy and cool. Remember to include yourself in the wonderful diversity of people and be happy with where you are now and all that you are trying to do.
