Yes, I am doing loads better this morning. A couple of things are helping me:
I am using FlyLady. I'm not rigidly following it, but I'm using helpful tips and soon I will be on "her" schedule. This morning I took care of some things I had been procrastinating, and that eased my overwhelmed feeling quite a lot.
I talked to Phill last night, barely keeping it together, and he encouraged me to start exercising again.
Wouldn't you know, I just haven't exercised regularly since October 3rd. And I have the padding to show for it! Not to mention the feeling of incapability that follows me everywhere when my body is not healthy. I once had a midwife tell me that minor chemical imbalances (the kind that cause mild depression and mood swings and such) can sometimes be corrected by regular exercise. I do believe I fall into that category. I am a different person when I am exercising!
Another thing, also the most important thing, I have been neglecting is my spiritual health. Isn't it amazing (annoying) how everything else falls to pieces when this one area isn't in line?
So this morning, I am starting with those two things--exercise and scripture study--in the hopes that if I do those two things, everything else will fall into place! It's amazing what some husband-pep-talk and a night's rest can do. Today I'm making efforts and I am hopeful that I'll see the dividends!
