Life Diet

When do I chill? When do I do stuff just for me? When do I relax? Take it easy?

The answer is almost never, at least that is the way it was. I would pretty much say yes to anyone who asked for my help regardless of how full my plate was. The stress I was feeling was brought on by my inability to say no, staying late a work all the time, getting to work crazy early all the time, and never taking time just to unwind.

Now, I have to. I have to if I want to live long. And after going through all the stuff I went through you better believe I want to live long!

So I have started a Life Diet. Credit to my friend Kelly for coming up with that sweet name.

A Life Diet is simply cutting out the stuff in life that can cause stress. Now, there are a lot of things that I love to do, heck everything I do I love to do but I say yes without thinking and stress the heck out. No more.

The Life Diet starts with a major detoxification.  I am saying no to all things that are more that I have to do. Taking a year off to take it easy, think about my well-being first, and enjoy life. Last weekend I did almost nothing. I totally relaxed after church on Sunday and it was great. Difficult but great.

My outlook on my future is so different now. Before I felt like I only had a little time left but now I want to prolong my time here and that means taking care of ME!

The Life Diet has begun and now I am going to end this post so I can get a cup of tea and start my day.
