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!

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."

“Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.” ~Doug Firebaugh

Too often we set our goals too high, then get overwhelmed and end up quitting. Take it one step at a time, one day at a time. It may be slow, but we will get to our destination and feel wonderful about ourselves........THAT'S WHAT WE WANT!!!!

Hope you have a terrific Thursday, Gail. I'm gonna try to get the rest of my shopping done today, only 2 more gifts to buy. Then get it all wrapped, so I can start on the baking. That's the hardest part for me.....I love baking, but I love eating it too. emoticon So glad that most of it won't be staying in my house.

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” ~M. Scott Peck

Hi Gail, Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my blog. And truly getting what I was trying to say... I too have my list posted where I can see it as I continue on the path of healing, both on the outside and the inside.
Big hugs my friend and may you have a wonderful day!
