“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi
Someone sent this to me today and I really liked it. I can really relate to this saying. It seems that sometimes I am a split personality. I say one thing and really think another. For instance, when asked: Q: “Were you going to eat that last piece of pie”? A: “No” I lie. Q: “Do you want to sign up for this committee and help with [insert committee/charity name here]”. A: “Sure”. I mean, why not. I only have five bazillion other things I do and charities to support. Sometimes its a wonder I ever get ANYTHING accomplished! 😀 I really wanted to say exactly how I felt, but it seems that the times I did express my true opinion, something went sour and I always felt like sticking my foot in my mouth. Although, if you know me, you would say that I am not a door mat and I do have a definite opinion and way of doing things, but it seems like when I open my mouth, what I really want to say, just doesn’t come out right!
Although, this past year has really taught me many valuable things. Even though most say 2008 was a really bad year, I have to chalk it up to one of the best years of my life. I learned how to say “No”., mean it and walk away without feeling guilty. Last year I focused on quality and not quantity and I do believe it has improved my life spiritually and emotionally. It has also improved quality of life for my family. Instead of me running around like a chicken with her head cut off, I stayed home, enjoyed my family, enjoyed my church and chose a handful of activities and organizations to be involved in. And, you know what? Everything got done anyway. It did not all hinge upon whether or not I could sign up for ONE more thing. So, I am off to a good start this year! I am looking forward to 2009.
