Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and good things will be yours.

Okay, so I'm tired of feeling alone and being mopey after my last guy. I want to feel excited about life again...so I found a new thing to try to meet people, meetup.com. Just signed up for it, hoping it will give me some new activities, help me meet new people.

missing things

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I dont miss him, I miss who I thought he was.

As I sit here, thinking of what I am having trouble with in my weight loss journey, I am being reminded of missing the way I view things. I'm having trouble with losing a friend who became a lover, then lost from my life when I learned he was abusing prescription drugs. So I missing the person I thought he was. And it's the same thing with my weight...I am really missing my old habits, ones I thought had been okay and now am learning are not.

    I am sure that you have heard this before but time heals all wounds. I am sorry about your guy. My brother has a problem and it has almost destroyed my family a few times. I have come to realize that we can't have a relationship until he gets himself together. Eventually the pain will lessen and life goes on a little bit easier. Try not to go back to your old habits if you can. There are plenty of people to turn to in life. Keep your chin up you are strong. Good Luck!

small jobs

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

Nice way of re-wording what spark people says all the time - to be successful at weight loss, we need small, doable goals.

Playing the cards

Sunday, January 27, 2013

"When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure."
Peter Marshall

The last couple of weeks have been stressful, dealing with a now unfortunately former friend who has lost it. I recognize that a lot of negatives I have seen in my life are because I have not been dealing with the stress. But, when I saw the above quote, it reminded my that, if I can deal with this tough situation in a positive fashion, I will be the better person for it. Rather then my former friend who ended up losing everything, not just material wealth but decades long friendships, because he handled stress in a very negative and destructive manner.

As said by Lee Iacocca, "in times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive." I have to remind myself that I cannot control what happened. So rather than let it stress me and control me negatively, I need to put into something positive, like taking care of myself.
