Spring Break 

I decided that I’m not going to grade last week’s goals, because I try very hard not to beat myself up about things I can’t control. But here’s a quick summary for posterity’s sake: The closest I got to exercising was walking to and from the bathroom a million times a day. TMI? Sorry. I tried reading my book while I was laid up in bed, but I just couldn’t concentrate. I wasn’t able to attend the convention (obviously). I did work with Lulu on her obedience training during the week, but not very much.

While I’m frustrated about being sick (especially since Spring just officially began!!!), I’m trying not to focus on “not completing my goals” as a reason to be frustrated. I know it’s a silly thing to be frustrated about anyway, but sometimes you just latch onto something concrete to be mad about when the real issue is something you can’t actually control.

I’m learning to show myself grace about things I can’t control, but it’s a perpetual lesson. It is so easy to fall into the trap of blaming myself for my disease, even when intellectually I know that’s ridiculous.

This week, I’m taking a break from weekly goals. I’m still feeling pretty awful and I have no idea when I’ll be back to “normal.” I hope everyone else had a better weekend than I did! Haha. Thanks again for your kindness and prayers on my behalf. It is cheering to know that I’ve got a bunch of friends out there wishing the best for me. 🙂

  1. I don’t “like” that you’re unwell, of course (I liked this post). But I do like that you’re taking a much-needed break and just letting things roll on. I’m so sorry you’re still under the weather, Kelli. 😦 I know how unpredictable this disease can be. My mom was just diagnosed with colitis and my best friend has Crohn’s as well. Still praying for you and your fam. Sending love and hugs!! ❤

  2. Hey Kelli, you have no idea how encouraging you are. This may sound funny but it’s encouraging to know I’m not the only one who gets annoyed by the things I can’t control. A few weeks ago I ended up really sick because my very sweet little brother offered me a taste of his airhead… I found out the hard way it had gluten in it. I felt so lazy and down because I literally couldn’t leave my room for 3 days. *internet hug* I’m so sorry you are still not well, but don’t be hard on yourself. I pray you get well soon, take the time your body needs to heal. Things will be waiting for you when you are well again. ❤
