Are you Driving, Riding, or Watching?

As I ponder over the changes that have happened in my life over the last 90 days, I have to wonder if I am putting way too much pressure on myself.  I am generally a well balanced person.  However lately, I seem to be off of my game. I don't feel like I am giving a 100 percent.  I am getting things done, but some days it seems as if I am in a fog; just doing enough to get by.  Ever felt like that before?  I also know that what ever I am dealing with probably fails in comparison to someone else.  So, what is a girl to do?

I am entertaining going back to school for another degree.  I have had a longing for law school for as long as I can remember, but I keep talking myself out of going.  So I am trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. 

I am accepting the things that I cannot change about other people. I realize that I am in control of how I respond to how people treat me. I realize that I am responsible for teaching people how to treat me.  If I fail in that, then I have no one to blame but myself.  I know that my feelings are not right or wrong, because they are mine.

Has anyone else ever felt like your life was passing you by? If so, what did you do to get back on the ride? 

Keeping us empowered and uplifted,

While reading this I kept feeling as though I knew exactly what you're talking about. After the birth of my children I began to feel as though I was on the outside looking in watching life pass me by. As always, I relied on the power of prayer and found myself leaning on family and friends even more so.
