Living in the moment

It has been a LONG time since I last posted...I haven't even checked out other peoples blogs, which is one of my favorite pastimes. The past week has been a pretty emotional for me. I have been pretty down with how certain things in my life are going. I got my test results back and it appears that there is nothing wrong with my gall bladder (which is great news) but I still have no explanation for my abdominal pain. I am starting to think that I have an ulcer due to my crazy, stressful job. The passion for my job is quickly fading away and I am starting to think that I don't need that kind of stress in my life. I would rather be at home with my family or friends then at work being yelled at (who wouldn't?). I have been so down with how some of my relationships have been headed, to the point that I literally get sick in the stomach when I think about it. I talked to my mom about it and, as usual, she gave me some great advice, which was, life is too short and I needed to live in the moment. If I am unhappy with something in my life then I needed to be proactive and change that today, rather than wait until tomorrow. This is great advice and I highly recommend it to everyone! Today I made the first step and did something that I had been putting off for MONTHS. I stopped by a good friends house to say hello. We haven't been in contact much for the past two years and I really missed her. It is so funny because I was so nervous to go over there....how silly! This was my good friend. My insecurities told me that she didn't need/want me as a friend anymore because I had been such a slothful friend lately. But as luck would have it she embraced me with open arms and we talked for a long time. I am so grateful that people can accept me for who I am and so grateful that my mom gave me such great advice... aren't mom's the best?!
So now I am back in the blogging world, so be prepared for some late posts that should have been done two weeks ago...oh well, better late than never, right?

Yippee, I have missed you, the clowns at the circus were getting too scary :) Sorry that things are going crazy right now, but your momma is absolutely right!! You must protect yourself and say no sometimes, otherwise life will eat you up! Things are a bit boring sometimes for us, but I find myself getting too stressed when there is too much going on, so sanity is better than busyness, I have concluded.
I love you and please call if you ever need to just talk, I am always here for you!

I'm glad you're back. I love that we can stay in contact this way. I hope you can work things out for the best. It's so hard to do it all.

It's nice to see you're back...why do you think I gave up $$$ teaching piano? Sometimes, it's just not worth it! Family must always come first. Once I realized that, I had no problem quitting. Life has been so much better and I am so much happier! I Hope you can find what makes you happy and we need to get together soon. I am working on my scrapbook room right now..busy, busy! Painting away. Take care! You can stop by my house too! Our family has been biking a lot lately. Maybe we can get ours together and go on a ride sometime.
