“Practicing What I Preach”


I’m working on practicing what I preach. When you don’t feel good it’s difficult to get beyond it, and think of anything else. I find myself saying you’re a mess Connie, and the next thing I know something else goes wrong with me or I’m just not getting better. I start looking up things on google adding to the messy thoughts of my condition. It’s like feeding the monster that won’t go away. Not only am I saying I am a mess, others are saying it as well to me. Why would the monster even think of leaving when it’s being feed so well?

The first step is recognizing what you’re thinking and saying to yourself, then simple stop saying it. I am not a mess. I am Connie. Then I start to list of all the things I’m grateful for. It’s not easy when you don’t feel well, so I start with the obvious. I am glad I woke-up and have another day in my life to live. I am glad that Tom is still with me. I am glad that Ollie is snuggled up beside me. I am glad my kids and their family’s are healthy. I am glad for this opportunity to make the best of my condition. Now is there anything more I can do to make myself better? Of course there is, and it starts by remembering how blessed I am above all else.

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
