For a while now I’ve been treading water. I was actually going down, but now I’m just staying in place and not getting anywhere. I could list all kinds of “reasons” for this behavior, but believe me when I say that they’re not reasons at all, only excuses!
To be truthful, other peoples’ stresses and bad life choices have impacted my own life, increasing the stress I deal with every day. However, that should never be used as an excuse. After all, I really can’t do anything to change their problems…only offer support when asked; unfortunately their problems extremely bad, and only they and other qualified people can do anything about them.
So, I’ve decided that I can no longer let such things impact my life on such a profound basis. I can’t do anything about these problems and worrying about it and letting it impact my life isn’t going to make a difference. How am I going to stop this downward spiral? I’ve written out a plan, set my goals and now have steps to take every day. How do you get yourself back on track after being derailed? Maybe you’ve got great ideas that will help the rest of us stay on track!
