GNUATTITUDE is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Having lived more than half a century, I've finally learned that my attitude creates a lot of my experience.
My daily prayer is:
Teach me to love as You love
To forgive as You forgive
To see myself and others as You see us
And to boldly walk the path You have set before me.
My goal is to continue to make small but positive and lasting lifestyle changes. At the moment, most of my objectives involve weight loss, improved fitness and self-esteem. My desire is to find balance in the spiritual, physical, professional, and social areas of my life.
I'm tracking water, following the SP diabetic food plan, practicing daily prayer and meditation, and learning the fine art of positive self-talk.

Wow! It is so good to hear from you. I just got back from a trip to California and so glad to be home. It's been a real growth opportunity this summer. You know they say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I think I'm getting stronger. All-in-all I know God loves me and is in control. Good to hear from you.
