"If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams."

I am ready to make the necessary changes in my life to better my life style. So that I can be a better person. What make this time different than any other time or any other goal I have set for myself. To be honest I don’t know.

I do know that I don’t want to die overweight and out of shape. I know that I am not stupid, or lazy or ignorant, I need people to see smart, strong, determine and hardworking person when they see me. I want to be able to make a difference in the lives of the people I am around. I need to be a better role model for my family and people that I meet and most importantly for myself.

Recently I have been thinking about what I could have done, should have done and then I come to know that since I am not dead I still can accomplish each of the, could haves and should haves. I can work every day toward accomplishing each of these things and a lot more.

I should be more Zealous in my ministry.
I could have read the bible from Genesis to Revelation
I should read more than one translation of the bible
I could have my degree in information management,
I should keep up to date on the changing technology
I could have earning power so that I can get what I NEED.
I should have my own business doing something creative.
I could have a regular exercise routine so that keeping fit should not be a problem.
I should be a great motivator to my children (nieces and nephews). They can accomplish anything they desire it helps to see that as well as hear it.
I should, could and need to be proud of me.

I should be able to accomplish each of these and more just by living a productive, driven lifestyle.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
