    What is an area of your life you're working on?

    What is an area of your life you're working on?

    Hey CNET,

    What is one area of your life that you're actively working on? What area of your life are you trying to improve?

    As a spiritual person, I'm working on surrendering more to God's plan for my life, and taking the focus off of my own plan. I'm also working on judgment. I just bought the book "Judgement Detox" by Gabrielle Bernstein and am finding it very eye opening.

    I look forward to learning more about you!

    Thanks for reading,
    Megan

    Hey Megan!

    I'm like you and trying to be less judgemental as well. I try to put myself in that person's shoes, and try to see things from their perspective.

    I am also working on my sleep schedule. I have always had issues with initiating sleep, so I've been trying different ways to get more sleep. Sleepy time tea, fuzzy socks, blackout masks, you name it...

    Good topic!

    Have a great day!

    Hey Megan,

    Congratulations on your win this week. I know you are getting close to reaching your goal of $10,000- which is so great!!! I have really enjoyed "chatting with you".

    I have been working on trying to lose weight and just improving my overall health. I'm starting to see some progress and that is encouraging.

    I do need to step up though and figure out some sort of consistent exercise program so I am still working on it.

    Thanks for the forum and have a good one!

    Re: What is an area of your life you're working on?

    Good morning, Megan.

    One thing that I am working on is eating better. I have always just eaten whatever I wanted and never gave a thought about how it affects my body or what nutritional value (if any) the food had. I struggled with gaining weight to be stronger on the soccer field so this summer I really began focusing on putting healthier food in my body. It seems to be working. Now, I will need to be sure I continue to make these conscience decisions as I live away from home and move on campus.

    I appreciate your forum as always! Good luck on your spiritual journey!

    Hi Megan,

    Congrats on your win this week!

    I am not a Godly person in the sense that I am an atheist, however I have been working on personal growth for the past year and that has led me to become a little bit spiritual (in a nonbelieving way. It's confusing.)

    Right now, I am working on becoming a better listener. I interrupt a lot when I am conversing and I tend to stage-hog, as well as pseudo-listen while I am thinking of my response. I am studying the flaws of conversation and coming up with some fixes. I think awareness of my flaws goes a long way as well.

    Good luck on your personal growth! I know that it can't be easy to surrender to god and work on not judging others, but they both sound like worthy pursuits. I'm going to look up that book as it sounds great.

    good morning,

    A area in my life I'm working on at the moment is loving and living for me.. as long as I can remember I've never been single until recently. Honestly it's kind of hard not having anyone lying beside me or someone making jokes with me just because of anything. What I'm learning is that I can make myself laugh I can love myself and I love myself. In the beginning it was kind of hard put each day is a little bit easier

    Re: What is an area of your life you're working on?

    Hi Megan,

    I am so glad I read your post today, I need to work on surrendering to God's plan too. Ultimately I need to realize that I am not in control but he is.

    I would like to focus on reading the bible in the mornings, I think this is important to set the day. I think when we put him first all other things fall in line, I am not sure why this is such a hard lesson for me to learn.

    I also want to copy your idea of being less judgmental, I find the older I get I struggle more with that. Another focus for this year I want is to get healthy.

    I know you said one focus, I guess I'm having a hard time focusing on what I need to focus on :)

    Have a great day!

    Re: What is an area of your life you're working on?

    Hey Megan,

    I can identify with what you've written about surrendering to God's plan as well. I worry too much, especially about money. When I don't need to worry about anything because I'm taken care of. I've been blessed with abundance.

    So my area for growth is to worry less, pray more and have fun with life!

    Re: What is an area of your life you're working on?

    I love this question and some of the responses that I have read. I also have been wanting to congregate myself more to God because he is the only one that we should be surrendering to. God has always been in control and not us. The situation is that there are people out there that blame God for all the bad things that are happening to them. Technically God created your path before you were born. He wants you on that path so that you can follow him and enter his kingdom. The reason why bad things happen to us is because we are selfish humans and we want to do things ourselves so we derail ourselves from God's path. That is when bad things happen and its only our fault, not God. I would like to read more of what others have to say. Great question.

    Aloha,

    I like to think I am always working on many parts of my life. Right now I am particularly working on my spiritual/meditation practice and really making that a strong habit and part of my life. I just got a fantastic book on meditation and am planning on trying new types/ways of meditating. I am also working on work- in particular studying for a board exam and learning a new computer program.

    Thanks for the forum!

    I am working on eating better. I have let myself slip and started snacking to much on junk.

    Re: What is an area of your life you're working on?

    Hi Megan,

    Great post! I am working on having more faith...in God, iand in just trusting that God really is working everything for my good. This is a lesson that is hard because it requires to “Let hi and let God”, I will let a problem go and then take it back again... so Faith is what I am working on!!

    Congrats on your win ...you are almost graduated I am sure!!!

    Thanks for the forum,

    Re: What is an area of your life you're working on?

    Hey Megan,

    I am trying to get out of my comfort zone more, I've always been too careful, safe, and overthink things, but I really want to do more that I can tell stories about, I want to have more experiences.

    Thanks for the topic,

    Max

    Re: What is an area of your life you're working on?

    Great question :)

    I'm trying to work on being more self aware of how I come across to other people. I notice I sometimes rub people the wrong way, totally unintentionally; I always have good intentions at heart. I think its something about my body language, intonation or tone in words, or expressions that are being misinterpreted.

    I'm a tense person sometimes, and my mind is going a hundred places when I'm having a conversation, or solving a problem with someone which makes me naturally scrunch my eyebrows up and look mildly irritated I imagine! So as silly as it kind of sounds, I try to relax my facial muscles when talking to new people or co workers, and make an effort to sound extra calm with my tone.

    I am also trying to let go of my own plans, similar to you, though I'm not religious I think there's a lot of peace of mind in letting go and just "being".

    Thanks for reading,

    Jess
