Carm Russell: My Resolution Challenges!

Two situations occurred at work last week that challenged me in both areas of my resolutions.

Two situations occurred at work last week that challenged me in both areas of my resolutions. 

An adult I have to deal with on a periodic basis is also someone who is going out of their way to make work life difficult for me and a group of my colleagues. It is hard for me to even remain unemotional when dealing with this person. So I finally prayed from my heart, after a sleepless night, for God to love this person for me and to bring me to a place of acceptance. I do not know if this person will change but the prayer changed me.  

The other was today…staff lunchroom had some tempting food (and any food can be tempting when it is Friday and almost the end of the day) and I would like to say I resisted temptation but I did not. However I had much smaller portions and am including them in my daily tracker for Weight Watchers. The end of a work day has always been a struggle for me and one area I still need to work on so that I am eating in a more healthy way. Practicing smaller portions is a habit I continue to work on and it paid off today.

Do you have a situation to share that challenged your resolution?
