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! oh you are planting flowers already! wonderful! the garden sounds lovely. have you grown hollyhocks at all before? they are so pretty--I used to grow the doubles--I do remember that Japanese beetles like to eat the leaves. there is one I have always wanted to try called "aunt brownie fig". the blooms have serrated edges.
I will pass along the suggestion about christening the tractor--around here we would probably just break a bottle of beer over it (it WOULD be sam adams--the champagne of beers). have a great Friday!

Hi Eileen
Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment. It sounds like you have dealt with many things throughout life but have come out on top. You are strong and you have come along way and you are here getting stronger and healthier every single day. Comments can be hurtful but it is what we let those comments do to our mind and what we decide to do with our bodies when we hear it. I decided to get stronger! Keep on pushing to be the best that you can be! You are worth the effort it takes to get there! All the best. Have a great Monday!
