"Two are better than one, Because they have a
good reward for their labor. For if they fall,
one will lift up his companion. But woe to
him who is alone when he falls. For he has
no one to help him up." - (Ecc. 4:9-10)
This week Brenda asked us to pick a theme for our post. I picked accountability, because last week Luanne of I'm hungry for something left me a comment suggesting we hold each other accountable, and I took her up on it, and that's what kept me from throwing in the towel.
Each time I wanted to give up, I thought of Luanne and drank some more water, or did a little exercise. Not a whole lot, but just enough to be able to say I did some. And I went to her blog and read some of her posts, which are full of wonderful insights. She is one very inspiring young lady.
Anyway, Brenda, for sure I was not one of those folks you "knew" were doing AWESOME this week. Quite the contrary. It has been a week of one frustration after another, and feeling totally out of control. And yet I know that's not really an excuse. We always manage to find time for the things we really want to do, and so whether I like it or not, I must admit I've been saying yes to the wrong things.
What makes the whole experience even more frustrating is the realization that I wrote a similar post weeks ago when I first joined FF, and here I am like a broken record, spinning round and round with the needle stuck in the same groove. What is wrong with me? How am I going to get out of this rut?
Tomorrow is a new day, and for the bazillioneth time I'm going to pick myself up, dust myself off and start all over again. Dear Lord, please show me how to make it work this time. Please let today be the last time around that same track.
