Thanks for adding me as a friend! I do feel very lucky to live on Cape Cod and to be so close to Boston. I try to get up there once a month in the warmer weather. I agree with you about Acoma Pueblo - it was a very moving, spiritual experience going there. I don't know about the long distance running, but I saw the church and heard the horrible story of how the indigenous people were enslaved to build it. 2087 days ago
I doubt that this your life has been different the last 10 years from the prior 10 years, and the 10 before that. That isn't the way life works, nor our self-perpetuating experience of it. Life habits are just that, habits. There are lessons in them. Listen and learn, then and only then does life, and our experience of it change.
Everyone is alone. There is no one more lonely than those who have a lot of people around them. Being on your own in life is siimply perhaps a "forced" recognition of that fact. The only time we are not alone is when we unconditionally love and give.
Force yourself to stop fretting. Give what you want to receive. 2184 days ago
Hi -- hope all's well. About your question whether others skip calorie counting for a day or two and then get back on track -- for me, until I get to a much better weight, I confine myself to a sweet treat maybe once a week. I'm really trying hard to make a lifestyle change where junk food, or unhealthier foods, are not a main part of my daily diet. I feel like the unmonitored eating is how I got to this weight in the first place, so I really want to change the habits and hope they will eventually just become automatic choices. Hang in there, and ultimately, you have to do what best for you and what you can live with. Good Luck! 2204 days ago
