A quick trip to the gym made my mind feel better. I also found out that my brother is staying at a church - a shelter/long term residential place. He can stay there all the time and they have bible study, etc. which he likes to do. I am grateful for that. It put my mind at ease for today. While working out I thought about everyone in my life and how much I care about them. I also acknowledged that I am not responsible for them. I am responsible for taking care of me, though. And that means rest, eating right, not taking on too many commitments, having some fun, doing things I enjoy, getting exercise, and so on. So I am going to focus on that. I spent a good deal of quality time with daughter this weekend. Grandson went to a friend's for a couple of nights which was good for him. Overall I had a very nice weekend with much relaxation and rest. I overdid the food but I am back on track today. I am feeling better by the minute!
Today, I will take actions that appear appropriate. I will let go of the rest. I will strive for the balance between self-responsibility, responsibility to others, and letting go.
