Blog Challenge Day 24

Day 24 - Something I've Learned

Well it doesn't say when I have learned something so that's really broad! I have learned to read and write, to look after myself and be independent, but I guess the idea is for it to be something more personal and maybe fairly recent.

The thing that comes to mind is to take one day at a time and to not worry.

I am a dreadful worrier! I worry about what people think of me. I worry about things I've done wrong not just recently but throughout all my life. I worry about not being able to get out with the doggies for regular walks and not being a good owner able to control my dog and stop her from barking etc. I worry about not being a good friend cos I live too far away or I'm not well enough to meet up with the ones who are local! All this sounds like I haven't learnt anything but I have....

 I have learnt just this last week that dog owners are not perfect and I'm not the only one who yells shut up at their dogs on occasion! I have learnt that it is a waste of time and very precious energy to worry over the things in the past, things that are impossible for me to change. I have learnt that I have to make a conscious decision to not watse my time worrying over things like these! And I have learnt that a good friendship can survive little contact and still be strong and lovely when contact is made!

Learning to take it one day at a time isn't easy but I am trying and I'm trying to make the most of each day. That doesn't mean doing so much I exhaust myself and make myself ill but to change my focus from looking at what I can't do to seeing what I have achieved each day.

I guess there is one real message here. You have control over your life and how you live it and what you make of it! So I challenge you (if you need it) to do the same!
