Hard not to fall in the pit

The pit.  You know, that pit of feeling sorry for yourself. 

I don't do change all that easily.  Well, unless I initiate it ;)

2 Mondays ago I had surgery & went in knowing fully what I would and wouldn't be able to do afterward.  2 weeks of resting & healing.  Walking is encouraged (happy girl!). 

I realized during this time there were certain things I needed to focus on.  There are other things happening in my life that I would just get way too focused on.  Things that in the grand scheme of things really don't matter.  Worrying about what others are thinking, etc.  NOT MY JOB :)

I am busy healing, walking & resting.  I am setting goals for myself & working on meeting them so I can check that one off & move to the next one. 

One of the things that helped TREMENDOUSLY was a good friend invited me out to a preview of a movie coming out in May called Moms' Night Out.  We had an INCREDIBLE time & laughed out butts off.  I thought I was going to pop my stitches at one point.  It was just that good.  I'll post something about that soon too :)  I was honest with her & explained how I was a little anxious about going out like that.  Silly huh?  Of course once there it was awesome & so worth it!!

One of the things I have found that is something I have to actively keep on top of is not feeling sorry for myself.  Seeing all my friends posting pics or status' of what their workouts have been.  Seeing someone running.  I feel myself getting down when I see this.  Then I realize that is ridiculous!  I will be working out again in the next month or so.  I will start out light I'm sure but I will be moving & lifting & loving it again soon enough. 

There was a reason I needed a rest.  I think we can all push ourselves to the point of needing a rest.  Maybe we don't realize it & we get that push.  That's what I had to get.  I got the push telling me I have no choice. 

It's cool.  I have some awesome friends that have kept me going.  Keeping me encouraged by their little notes & texts. 

Well, thanks for reading my thoughts here.  Hope everyone out there is doing well!!

How do you keep yourself focused when life throws you a curveball?

Be Blessed & Live Healthy!!
