Happy Sunday.

Cyril in Rembrandtspark 9th July 2011.
Today is another relaxed day, I am sure this is all thanks to Anja’s visit yesterday and her helping me with my paperwork.

Felt so good last night to be free of stress, realised again that getting upset so often about things I can’t influence is a waste of my time and energy.

I hope that this fact will finally sink in, so often I find myself getting worked up by events that I can not influence.

So if that true I intend in future to stop getting upset and try to focus on things that I can do something about.

I feel more confident that I will be able to stop myself getting upset about things, events that I can not change.

The other thing want to stop doing is reproaching myself, and giving myself a hard time, as I do so frequently.

When I got the letter from Agis that I would get cannabis on prescription instead of just being happy at this success, I had to reproach myself for not writing sooner.

As soon as I reproached myself I became conscious of what I was doing, instead I concentrated on enjoying the incredible good result Anja’s letter achieved.

Feels so much better to give myself credit for getting things done, without immediately giving myself a hard time.

Although our situations are very different, I too use to beat myself up and not see things in a brighter light. Kind of seeing the glass half empty instead of half full.
Since changing my attitude and prospective, my life feels so much more enriched and happy.
I hope you succeed. Especially in stop giving yourself a hard time.
Love to you Herrad & I hope you will have a beautiful day.
PS LOVE the pic of Cyril♥

Hi Janis,
I agree with you, better to see the glass is half full.
I am sure that this time I will be able to think that I did something well without qualifying it by reproaching myself.
It's not easy is it but so good when it works.
Today has been enjoyable, hope you are enjoying your day.

As Janis said, looking at things with a different perspective wld make things better.Easily said though, the pains and discomfort cannot be wished away.I hope with some more adjustments you should feel better.
Take care

Hi H@R, o so easy to worry about stuff, I,m just as guilty of giving myself a hard time. Slowly adapting to pating myself on the back and changing the things I can. Paper work is allways nice once done so good for you. YOU ROCK LADY

Ps Cyril looks very happy with a tree in his mouth:)
