Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Other Information:
Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

Your comment about writing a story cracked me up...I had literally started writing one the night before! (Of course, I could also clean my house or weed the garden, but that is not as entertaining!)

Wow, your comment on my blog, where you compared junk food to a drug, really hit home with me! I know I have an addictive personality...I'm going to take a closer look at that. Thanks!
