I am a working mom to 3 active children ages 13, 11, & 7. We are blessed to be able to provide many opportunities for our kids to learn, grow and express themselves. However, this also makes for very busy parents. It has become a real challenge to make time for myself. Honestly it has started to feel impossible. I''m really trying to put into prospective the fact that I''m not the only one in this situation and that it is possible to fit in things that matter like your health and exercise. It''s not that you can''t....it''s how can you? Its a challenge I''ve started with myself called 1 Good Thing. What 1 Good Thing have you done for yourself today?

    The only thing I can think of with my back is walking my foster dog Beau. He pulls on the leash a bit and I've been working on teaching him not to pull by giving the leash a quick tug which tightens the Martigale collar on his neck that we use for our dogs. It doesn't get too tight...just puts a bit of pressure there for them to learn not to tug. He isn't learning very quickly though so I was doing the tug back motion quite a bit last night. I used my better arm but I think I must have over done. emoticon

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will live through this day only. I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all of my problems at once.
    I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will accept what is. I will face reality. I will correct those things that I can correct and accept those I cannot.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will improve my mind. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration. I will not be a mental loafer.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking.
    Just for today, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will do something positive to improve my health. If I'm a smoker, I'll quit. If I am overweight, I will eat healthfully -- if only just for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it's only around the block.

    JUST FOR TODAY: I will gather the courage to do what is right and take responsibility for my own actions.

    *PROVERBS31JULIA posted this as a blog yesterday. Said she got it from 'Dear Abby'. I thought it was so good I copied it so I could share it with more Sparklers!
