In my effort to get back to the basics, this is the first thing wrote in my original "introduction"


**I Pledge to do my best to work towards successfully meeting my goals for this year.
**I pledge to be kind to myself, to love and encourage myself, to have a sense of humor and to pick myself up when I fall, without castigating, berating or hating myself
**I pledge to surround myself with people who are positive and upbeat; who will love and encourage me. I will be there to love and encourage my friends as well.
**I pledge to set mini goals for myself so I am not overwhelmed and I will celebrate every success!
**I will find the joy in every day! I will go through my day with an attitude of gratitude for ALL the blessings in my life.

After a small, mostly unintended break from SP, I'm back. I have had time to think... debate and argue with myself...wonder and worry...I lost the argument for a while and paid the price. Hope and desire to grow beyond where I am has won out. I'm here...again and I will keep returning until I get it right once and for all.

So here I am, once again...getting back to basics, not only here dealing with my health, but with the other areas of my life. I have made the mistake in the past in focusing on only one area of my being and life, instead of working towards integrating everything I learn (and not only from here) into my whole self.

I am filled with hope, excitement, and desire to make this year, 2017, the best year since before I was sick. It's time to throw off the shackles and limitations of the past and look forward to the hope, possibilities, and joy of the now.
