Refreshing My Life!

I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step ...
I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step built on another, baby steps are progress, and no time limit- only progress. I've decided mistakes are made only to educate me and are only a sidestep, not a change in direction. The more I learn about health the easier it is to make choices.

hi! as to your question--I will do more pottery classes-but I need to seek out more formalized instruction. there is an art center in south bend where it is taught and I will probably go there.
have a great Friday!

hi! thanks for the critique--you were quite right on all points. of course I uncharacteristically painted the letters on as soon as I got home--normally I leave them for a day and look at them to make sure they look right. so I am in the process of blanking out the word vinegars and changing it.
as for the spice board--I was going to add some loose star anise into the composition and forgot about it. that's all I can really do--Phyllis was very specific about what she wanted in each sign. but I can fill some of the negative space near the big spice container at the top . I think that's the part that needs it the most.
have a great day!
