acceptance
Wednesday, April 2, 2008


There are several things I've accepted about myself.

I will never be able to fold a fitted sheet. I've read step by step instructions...watched how-to videos online...even caught an episode of Oprah with Martha Stewart demonstrating the proper folding technique. I just can't do it. The best I can accomplish is a "tidy wad". It works for me. I'm fine with it.

I'll never be a high fashion dresser. I'm pretty sure that to accomplish that certain "look" you first of all have to enjoy shopping. There's my first problem, and one I'm not likely to overcome. Secondly, I am not a fan of the high heel shoe. I will wear them occasionally when feeling particularly sassy. But that's a rare, rare day.

I will never truly appreciate classical music or the symphony. This one pains me. I so want to be sophisticated. But as hard as I've tried, I just can't get into it. In my college humanities class, there were people who could identify the composer almost upon hearing the first note. I was so jealous of those people.

Those are silly things....things that used to frustrate me....but don't frustrate me anymore. I'm a sheet-wadin', jeans and tennis shoe wearin', simple-music lovin' kinda girl. And I like it that way.

But then there are other things I worry I have accepted about myself.

I'm just not a morning person. Mornings at my house will always be rushed and crazy, and I just can't get up in time to meet with the Lord in the morning. WRONG. I know I could get out of bed earlier and start my day in a less frantic way. I just haven't made that choice.

I just can't eat right and get to the gym regularly. My life is just too crazy right now. WRONG. There are plenty of other mom's out there who manage to eat right and exercise. I just haven't made that choice.

I just wasn't born organized. I'll never have a home that always looks tidy, welcoming, and ready to greet company. Umm....wrong? Okay wait....so this one I really DO think is true. Just kidding. Sorta. I'm working on it, okay!?!

I find your blog via gombojav. Since i noticed a post where you are from tulsa area i check yours occasionally. I have good friends that moved to collinsville and I live in OKC.
Anyway I had been praying that the Lord would motivate me to get up and have devations and exercise before I got up my mob (5 that are 11 and under)
He changed my husband's schedule so now I have been getting up with him and listening to audio bible online while I exercise on the gazelle (easy on old joints). It has been working out really well. One more thing that has been a blessing is that I am so tired by the end of the day that I fall asleep as soon as I hit the pillow and nothing wakes me up, where I used to wake up 2-3 times a night and have trouble falling back to sleep.
You never know how the Lord might answer prayer.

Oh how I CAN relate to this post!

I just went to total fitness yesterday to get some info on a membership. I am tired of being the only mom with no time to work out..... Wait, I am tired of being the only mom that doesn't make time to work out because I am reading blogs. LOL.
