I think the brain fog may be clearing.  I finally feel like I can change the bad habits by picking one a day (although it may be one a week in reality) and truly just working on it.  Today I have chosen to address my attitude since it can negatively or positively influence all my actions. I have spent so much of my life being in control of everything (and along with control comes responsibility)that it feels good to think I don’t have to control everything at once.  I can take it SLOW.  I think I will adopt a new mantra and repeat it to myself over and over like a self-cheer to keep going.  Excellence not perfection.

      I think I like that one too. I can be good and still not stress trying to be perfect.

      Have a great day dear.

    • It does take 21 days to change a habit.  Or..you can say it takes 21 days to start some new ones...such as...exercise!!  

      That is what I’m working on....

      Pchilde1:  It’s very liberating to say “no” and to not be responsible for crap anymore.  Once you get the hang of it....you will wonder why you did the other for so long.  More power to ya....good for you!

    • All a choice, right? (Not to say sometimes it isn’t difficult of course)
      Do the next ‘right’ thing sort of thinking works for me.
