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 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.

Eileen828 - THANK YOU truly for your comment on my blog. YOU are the only person to ANSWER me - i want to thank you for validating that I EXIST, I AM - with a brain, feelings , responsibilities that go far beyond just 'leaving'. i have met with several lawyers over the years - i have spoken to clergy, inquiried with financial advisors, etc etc etc . if it were all so easy as to open the front door and leave (which i have been told it is) I WOULD HAVE DISAPPEARED a long time ago.
you have made me feel so much better - and if you were in front of me now i would embrace you with tears streaming down my cheeks. you are a truly lovely human being - and took time from your day to be thoughtful to me. you thought i was worth it.
wow - i cannot explain how beautiful that was to do.
you my friend are a superlative human being and i don't come across that very often.
thanks again BB emoticon

Hi Eileen! Thanks for stopping by my page! Fear not about the "friend" thing! I have had things disappear on my page and sometimes they reappear and sometimes they don't. Not to worry. I always enjoy your blogs and have considered you my friend -- listed or not!

Thanks for sharing!

Funny, I was thinking the same thing about the different dandelions. The ones in my front yard look almost like a cross between dandelion & golden rod. Not near as pretty as the dandelions of my childhood either! I don't know about eating them....definitely do a little research first!
