Day 10 - Pledge of Peace

For the past three years I've put goody bags together on a card table, which has caused severe back pains over time.  For Mother's Day I told hubby that I wanted money and I'd pick out my own gift.  To Wal-Mart we went to get me a very sturdy and pretty oak table (just like my kitchen table) and placed it in my work area/bedroom.  This made me extremely happy.  It's big, sturdy and there's tons of room for putting together goody bags. :)

Here I am at day ten in my 31 day pledge of peace and I must admit there have been a few bumpy moments (emotional), but I quickly talked myself out of those moments.  There have been a few times I've wanted to put myself on the back burner just to make someone else feel happy.  However, I knew that behavior was no longer accepted and it is okay to want to put me first sometimes.  The meditating helps so very much.  It's teaching me discipline and that I truly needed.

I've Learned:
1. That I ignore my needs way too much
2. I allow others to guilt me into doing what they want
3. I let my emotions get the best of me
4. That I actually LOVE giving myself attention and care
5. That God lead me to this journey for a very good reason

Today's Intention: I intend to spend more time with God by reading my Bible

Today's Kind Act: I'm NOT allowing anyone to make me feel guilty, because I won't give in to them.  I'm standing up for myself!


  1. Hi Tabitha,
    Thanks for visiting my blog when Deidra was guest posting -- and it's nice to meet you here! :) I am liking what I've read so far on your Pledge of Peace. Sounds challening but rewarding. Keep up the good work!

  2. I'm excited about that 31 days of peace. I hope to do that someday. I'm sure God will teach me A LOT about myself. BTW - those nachos below look yummy!

    Glad you got your sturdy work table!

  3. Good for you, Tabby! My mother often said this saying, "People should tend to their own knitting" and she'd use it to mean also that they ought to meet their own needs and stop guilting other folks into meeting them...of course, as the Queen of Making Others Feel Guilty, I guess she knew a thing or two about


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
