There are so many meanings to the phrase ‘Time Change’. For most people, it means turning the clocks back or forward depending on what time of year it is. Just a little side note, I despise the time change in the fall. I know gaining an hour sounds good and all, but dealing with it being dark so stinking early is totally not worth it. I likes me daylight. (Be advised, my allergy medicine may be kicking in…I’m getting a bit sleepy, and my thoughts and evidently that last sentence about daylight are in a british/pirate-y accent…uh-oh.)
Okay…back to my original thought. Time change for me lately has been a time for change in my life. I’ve really begun to take a stand, and change some not-so-great things about myself. My newest goal is to not raise my voice to my kids. I am, by default, a loud person. I’m not sure exactly where I picked up this handy, dandy feature, but it’s not one that I want to use as often as I find myself using it. I’m also trying to express the way I feel towards other people in an appropriate fashion. It seems that some people are offended when you come out and tell them they are being annoying, obnoxious, etc. Who knew? I wouldn’t exactly call it ‘sugar coating’, but maybe just bumping it down a notch. Also, letting those I love know how much they mean to me…how I appreciate them and all they do. And finally, I’ve decided to totally let God handle the drama. I am through feeling stressed out about other peoples reactions to hypothetical situations. I am ready to be prepared in case there is a tomorrow, but live today like there’s no tomorrow. Not necessarily being reckless or anything like that, but showing love and compassion, praying for others in their times of need or blessings, and just enjoying the fact that I have today…another day.
So, to sum up, I am toning myself down a bit, but living life to the fullest…sounds weird, but I’m up for a challenge. Yo-ho-ho!
