Big Changes!

April 25, 2014

Lots of things have happened in the last year. I moved across country from South Dakota to Arizona - on my own! My life is my own and I can no longer blame anyone else for what I am doing or not doing and so on and so forth. My move is complete, I am settled in at my job and my hours are very convenient for working out. And the sun is always shining here!

Looking back at my photo from my sister’s wedding on June 9th really made me think. I have been in denial for so long about how I looked. I had absolutely no idea I was as big as I was. I always try to remain positive and perhaps this is the reason I don’t have very many photographs taken of me. Now here is the deal! I can sit and wallow in what I look like now - or - I can do something about it! This journal is just the beginning of what I hope to be an exciting journey of self discovery. If I had a “totem” flower, it would be a rose and right now I am closed tight protecting my self against the outside forces that threaten me. However, in order to experience all that life has to offer, I need to bloom and show myself and the world my true beauty within - only then will the outside match the inside.

I plan to take a proactive approach to my recovery. Sparkpeople! Al-Anon, and self-help gurus like Jack Canfield’s Success Principals, Cheryl Richardson and Deepak Chopra.

I am working on a reward, inspiration, etc Jar to help in my recovery. I think I will call it THE JAR and it will hold rewards, successes, journaling ideas. Anything that will help me to succeed on a daily basis. Of course I have my first 30 day reward which is a massage.
