Making myself a priority

It feels so good to be back and making this a priority. I deserve to be healthy and to feel good about myself. I deserve to lose these extra 50 lbs. I hereby give myself permission to do so.

It feels so good to be back and making this a priority. I deserve to be healthy and to feel good about myself. I deserve to lose these extra 50 lbs. I hereby give myself permission to do so.

NEW STUFF:

*I spoke to my parish priest (Father Mark) and found out that I have been approved to do bereavement counseling beginning tommorow, and that I am going to get to do my practicum (graduate student experience work) through the Church, and when the times comes for me to do my supervised internship hours he will find a supervisor for me to work under. I am so blessed! It is everything I had been praying for,

*I got my BS in psychology in May (2014)

*I was accepted into the graduate program and am now working on my MS in counseling: marriage, family, child therapy. I just started (Aug 2014) so I have another 2 years, followed by a year of internship.

___ amendment: PAUL AND I ARE NOW A COUPLE :)

* I'm dating a really great guy. It's new and we area not a couple, but we are both happy and very content with each other. I'm personally hoping that this will turn into something serious because I really do like him and we are both so comfortable with each other in every way.

WooHoo, it's Friday; the perfect day to start liking your how you look! It really does not matter what size you are. So please stop listening to the media telling you that you have to be a size 0. Your dress size does determine who you are. Do not let them take the joy out of your life. What they tell you and say is not the truth. They have a hidden agenda which does not care about anyone but their wallet. Yet, we give the media so much power. It's time stop.

Now is the time to be happy with how you look. After all, you are God's masterpiece--100% made by Him. Now how can you NOT be beautiful? How can you NOT like how you look? God does not make anything unattractive.

I want you to know that you really are beautiful. You brighten my day and make me feel that I am special. Your inner beauty touches my life and I am so much better because of it. This my friend is what real beauty is, not a being a size 0.

Today is Sunday, a day of rest, relaxation and time to refuel for the week. Yet, many people are stressed out. According to our life instruction manual, the Bible, we need to rest today. I am hoping that you are doing just that.

We have a full week ahead of us. If we are rested it will be a much easier week. Besides that, we will make better decisions, have more patience and most of all, enjoy our week a lot more.

If your not resting, please take some time to so. It is a way to take care of yourself, as well as showing others that you see yourself as someone of value and worth.

Have a wonderful week. Enjoy your time of resting and give yourself lots of TLC today because you are so worth it.

Woke up this morning to a cold, snowy day. I felt so happy to be able to go to work taking care of three very beautiful children. All of them have been abused. (My friend has adopted one of them and is in the process of adopting the other two.) I feel so very blessed to be able to care for them because I too was abused as a child.

This year I am focusing on being more loving and asked my Heavenly Father to teach me how to be a better mother and kinder person. Then pow, I was offer this job. What an awesome blessing and miracle for me. These three beautiful children are helping me understand my teenage daughter better. They are teaching much more than anyone can imagine. I now see how my daughter is asking for reassurance and needing to know she is loved. Also, I am better able to see how fearful she is at times.

These three children help me to be more loving to them and my daughter. They also give me so much positive energy as well as a free spirt that I have not had in years. I love being able to read them stories and make up games for them. It is amazing how special each one is, plus how smart they are. This is a wonderful job for me that I am so grateful for. I feel like I am exactly where I should be.
