I really like what my Meditation App said this morning.. “Work out your own salvation, do not depend on others.” -Buddha
I took it to mean that instead of worrying about others, or depending on everyone around you, depend on yourself a little more, figure out where you are going, where you want to be going and then do it. Even if the people around you don’t approve.
This is an important lesson I am learning very slowly. It felt good to sit for 3 minutes and just contemplate ways to incorporate the above saying into my life a little more.
I am working on my positive energy. Though I had a major relapse last night when I refused to start my Metformin. I started thinking of all the side effects and pretty soon I had myself convinced I was going to be sicker than a dog. So I talked to my mom, who of course, talked me down. Truth is, the benefits could outweigh the negatives and if it does make me sick, I can always stop taking them. Logic just never fails to make sense.
Tonight, after dinner, I am going to put my big girl panties on and take a leap of faith that I am making the right decision to take the Metformin for my PCOS. (little lost, read here).
I think a few slips is okay when it comes to my vow to stay positive. (Can’t remember, read here)
Life is still messy. I suspect it is going to be messy for awhile. But each time I mark something off my, “Need to get done so I will quit freaking out about it,” list, I feel just a little better and less chaotic.
The weekend plans, it is an easy weekend, I am officially going to enjoy the sun, put around in the garden, swim, take the dogs to the river to play fetch, catch up on homework and sleep.
I am very glad it is Friday, how about you? What is your interpretation of the above saying?
