I am just catching up on some SP posts and noticed we were on the same team. We have found a good support network here - just knowing that there are other people who can relate to our loss, our pain, our confusion. After decades of dealing with my father's passing - a wound that was recently reopened with my brother's passing - I have finally come to the understanding that the only person I truly can live my life for is me.
I am reading a book now that deals with mindful living called Full Catastrophe Living. The title is a little unsettling, but it's been an awakening! The first chapter is entitled: You Have Only Moments to Live. When I put my life in that perspective, it certainly does make every day ~ every moment more meaningful. I have spent far too much time wallowing in my pain.
Not anymore. This is my life, and I'm going to live it. I'm not saying that I will ever forget. I will acknowledge those thoughts when they arise, but I will remind myself when they do that there is nothing that I can do to change the past. There is everything I can do to live this moment to my full potential.
I don't know if any of my words resonate with you. I truly hope they do. This is your life. Live it the best you can!

**Hello** **my SPARKling Pal**
I came up with some ways to help BeFriend myself....
I thought I would Stroll on over and share Some with you, my Sparkling Friend and Pal....
Honor your own inner rhythm: *Make time throughout the day to just Listen to your inner - self and hearts desires*
BALANCE * Of course we may have to get out and Work...just remember to bring into balance some Play time throughout your day in your own way..*
Get out in nature: *Allow its beauty and naturally calming effect to soothe you and heal any disruptions that may be going on within you*
Nurture your body: *Pamper it with massage and leisurely baths. Honor your body and accept the things you like and the parts you don't like so much.*
Eat healthfully: *Make sure you add plenty fresh fruits and vegetables to your daily diet and when you do treat yourself to a goodie, choose moderately.*
Move: *Stretch, walk, exercise, dance, hike, do anything that rids your body of stress and tension.*
Soothe your mind: *Turn off the TV, meditate, read inspirational literature, listen to music, spend some time just doing or thinking about something you Love.*
Laugh: *Mingle with friends who inspire, relax, encourage you and Just Accept you As you are. Watch a good comedy,*
By doing the above You not only BEfriend yourself....
YOU will come to LOVE and ACCEPT yourself WHOLE heartedly......
which will make it possible to even give more of yourself to those you LOVE....
