Every Day Is A New Opportunity To Do It Right

Thanks for all the comments on my last post.   I've had some good "soul searching" time yesterday.  Keven did too - they put him in a holding cell to go to court and FORGOT HIM there for 12 hours.  When he told me about it he was very calm and casual.  But I started to get really mad and he said to me "Mom, there's no point in getting upset over something you have no control over".  Okay - I get it, even my son is telling me to LET GO and STOP trying to fix all the problems.  I will focus on me, God knows I have enough to work on for myself without taking on the rest of the world, right?

In my opinion, my good friend Bruce has a song for every occasion.  Today's selection is:

But it's a sad man my friend who's livin' in his own skin
And can't stand the company
Every fool's got a reason for feelin' sorry for himself
And turning his heart to stone
Tonight this fool's halfway to heaven and just a mile outta hell
And I feel like I'm comin' home

Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara

Once I focused on fixing myself and loving myself, I could finally see how crazy I was to try to take the troubles of others on my shoulders. It was easier to try to fix them. I took the focus off myself because I didn't want to do the work. When I was finally ready and at my emotional bottom, then I knew that my life was unmanageable. I could finally quit obsessing over others and put the focus on myself where it belonged. Take care.
