So…It’s been a while since I posted anything again. The reason that the title of this blog is called “Creating Boundaries” is for various reasons. The first of which is creating boundaries with myself for the things that I commit too. Like this blog. I am having a hard time writing something every day or even once a week. There are certainly lots of things to write about, this life journey has been pretty exciting–and I use that both in a positive sense and a negative sense. So, it’s not for lack of content to fill here.
I’m going to try to be brief (yes…me…brief…), but I’m going to share a couple of the things that I can put here:
1. Family – I’m not sure why family relations are so hard to maintain in a positive lite. I know it’s just not family, but I also know that the reason our family has difficulties is because of our individual processing of information that the rest just don’t seem to “get”. And if we can accept our differences–rather than trying to point them out,then family time would be much more comfortable for all. So, I’m in the process of setting up another boundary–accept me as I am.
2, My Health – I have NOT been taking care of myself properly. I am eating too much of the type of food that does not add any value to my physical being–it only adds fat. I know that this fat is a boundary in itself, but I want that boundary gone. I am strong enough to create boundaries using my personal strength of character and spirit. Enough with the excess weight! I am so…………..sick…………….. and………………. tired…………………. of ………….it!!! I am currently at my all time highest weight, by 10 lbs!!! And have hit a number that I thought I’d NEVER hit!
3. My home – I have not been taking proper care of my home either. I haven’t vacuumed in over two weeks–this wouldn’t normally be a problem but I’ve had dogs in and out with muddy feet and I have little bits of mud throughout the house. I haven’t made my bed in over a week. These are two things that I usually have a much better “control” over. Of course, in the grand scheme of things this is not the end of the world. The rest of my house is mostly tidy and clean. I guess I’ve just been focusing on what’s NOT done in my house instead of what is. The boundary issue for this is allowing my house to not be in the tidy and clean state that my boundary usually is.
That’s all for now, except to say that I may have some good news later in the week. I’ve put in for a new job position at work and hope to find out this week if I get it.
