"Be Thankful Challenge" Day 12

November 14th, 2013 10:41 AM by Wendy Thomas

Today, I'm thankful for those little reminders that we're on the right track in life.  Kind of like mother's intuition. My example-- I've been waiting to talk with someone, kind of missing that conversation, and when he or she finally called, I was more aggravated when I hung up the phone than when I was waiting on the call.  Conclusion: my original decision to take what I can get in the relationship instead of wanting more from them was the right decision.

This has been a problem for me for a long time.  I tend to crave more from those that I love and don't have enough quality time with.  I actually talked with a counselor once who told me that I need to be appreciative for the time that I spend with those people, and not anticipate what I could have, as I'll be the one always disappointed when that doesn't happen.  I've learned to do that, but I've been creeping back in the other direction lately, wanting more time with them.  But lesson learned, I'm back to being thankful for the talks and the time that I DO have, and not expecting any more than what I get.

You're instincts are usually right.  Just saying.  I'm the queen of listening to my "mother's intuition"... Now I need to remember to apply it to the rest of my life, not just my children.
