To change..or not to change...that is the question

My Dad has just arrived from the UK for a visit and one of the things he brought me was a mag. Here's something I found in the good health section regarding stress. So although it says you can't change your fate, you can change the way you handle it.

  1. What are 3 positive things about this problem?
  2. What's not yet the way you want it
  3. What are you willing to do to get the results you want?
  4. What re you willing to stop doing to get the result you want?
  5. How can you motivate yourself and even take pleasure in doing what needs to be done to get the result you want?
  6. What's something you can do today to get things moving in the right direction?

So I started things about my UC and could only come up with #1 - kind of positive thing and that was that it keeps my weight down. #2 - bugger..loads of things. So onto #3 and #4 - I'd do what ever it takes. #5 - I'll have to wait and see what I have to do first. #6 - think about what I'm stuffing in my mouth..bugger there goes the sweet stuff and beer...but to be honest I'd already decided no beer, wine or bubbles anyway for a few months.

Oh, and my books arrived I'll start reading tonight..although I still have to finish the 3rd book of the Twilight series...who will Bella choose (as if I didn't know!!)..but don't tell me anyway :D


  1. I love the Twilight series! Third book had some surprises for me in it. Enjoy it! And thanks for this post! Good questions to think about. I agree with keeping the weight down as a positive. Another positive I think is it makes me more empathetic towards other people. I have realized people that look completely well, may not be. And someone that acts crossly towards me may just be feeling ill. There is so much I don't know about other people, just like they don't know about me. So I'm more understanding now, and I think that makes me a better person. Also, another positive for me is that I've gotten to meet new people (like you) on these blogs and that's great too! So, I've got 3 positives.

  2. P.S. Do you like Jacob or Edward better? I like Edward! :)

  3. I have to say I like Edward better, but I haven't seen the film yet, so that might change my mind..his character is better though...well at least so far...I'm at the bit in book 3 where they are getting ready to go to Seattle and are training everyone to kill the newborns...

  4. I have to admit that the Edward in the movie didn't come close to the Edward I had created in my mind while reading the books. But really, could anyone compare to the near-perfect man in my imagination? The movie was okay, but the books are MUCH better. Still I'm looking forward to the second movie coming out soon.
