A Better Me

{via}
Things I'm Committing to in Order to be a Better Me:

~have faith. Everything happens in His timing, when it's supposed to. This is a lesson I continue to learn and will probably always need to remind myself about. It's so easy to get caught up in what you want, when you want it (now now now!!!) but there's always a bigger plan. Sometimes, you just need more faith.

~don't take my work home with me. Including the stresses. This year I have some really tough parents who have been causing me to stress out more than in other years--even talking about it gets my heart racing sometimes. I need to work on leaving work at work, and not letting it take over my thoughts or ruin my days. It's just not healthy.
~stop responding to other people's negativity. If they want to gloat, hold onto grudges or be unnecessarily rude, that's on them. I don't have to be a participant. And I won't be anymore.

~listing and looking for the positives. It's SO easy to get bogged down by the day-to-day when things are tough, but focusing on the small, positive things every day, and actively looking for them, can really help to turn your perspective and your outlook around.

~making the time for healthy things, even when I'm tired, stressed out or unmotivated. Those are the times these things help out the most, and they do you the most good!

~making sure to show the people in my life--those who are my rocks, my cheerleaders, my strength, the ones who take the time to include me in things, and make sure I'm doing ok--that they know how much they mean to me.

Life is certainly a journey of learning.
I'm on the journey, and becoming a be a better me in the process.

  2. Yay for you. Its so easy to forget about taking care of ourselves and focusing elsewhere. At the end of the day, its just you and MG, so remember to take of yourself for you and for him. Love you!

  3. There's always good to be found if we simply make the decision to look for it! Looking for the positives is something I forget to do sometimes - especially under stress. I think we can all always strive to be better versions of ourselves and I love the points you shared today, Jenn!

  8. great post! leaving work at work is very important. just like the job wants you to leave personal problems at the door we should leave work at the door too. I like your list. it's so easy to fall into the negative traps. let's just say "f that b" or "F those Bs" and move on. if they aren't paying your bills or making a positive difference in your life they can move the truck on!
