12 more days until I am retired! I can't wait!!

Dreamin' of soft white billowy clouds floating in a sky of azure blue as I'm running through a field of fresh cut grass barefoot (with no bees to step on) toting my high flying kite behind me. The sun is warm on my face and my hair is gently blowing in the wind, I can see butterflies and beautiful birds, the sound of their chirping is melodious as they sing their songs. As I'm running, I stumble and fall into a beautiful field of wildflowers whose fragrances are so intermingled with each others that only an aroma of heaven could be similar. As I become engrosed in the flowers, I'm no longer interested in my kite, and I simply let it go, up, up, up it goes until it is out of sight. Suddenly, I feel someone cuddle up next to me, as I look over, I find that it is my beloved. The prince I've waited for all my life and he is here, right now, holding me and gently carresing me and telling me how much he loves me.....
It's simply a beautiful dream and soon I'll wake up and find myself back at work at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving day, and now I know I can be grateful for the ability to dream.

I'm struggling, I can't seem to make myself want to do anything anymore. I lost my husband of 31 years in January of this year, and nothing seems worthwhile anymore. My life seems like it is so strange now, I can't make sense of anything. I have trouble focusing for any length of time, my work is suffering for it and I don't know what to do to turn it all around. Why did this have to happen? I ask that question frequently, but I don't get much of an answer. I know that all things happen for good to those who love God. And I do love God, very much, He is the ONLY thing that has gotten me through this so far. I don't know what the answer is but I hope I find it soon. I don't like feeling like this and with spring coming, that is my favorite time of the year. I want to feel good enough to enjoy it.

When I say it's only Tuesday, well, that is better than it being Monday, but not quite as good as it being Thursday or Friday. I'm already looking forward to the weekend because I'll have my niece all day Saturday and we're going to do some "Fall cleaning", in my kitchen!!! Can't wait!

Today is day one of breaking the cycle of "All or Nothing" thinking! I attended my company's health fair, and got all of my numbers, they were slightly better than last year, which is a good thing, but only slightly. Next year I want marked improvement! But now I have a starting point. I have my starting numbers. I've thought about my plan and will spend the weekend working in my garden and formulating in my mind how to proceed from here. The all of nothing mentality is truly destructive thinking because it will steal any joy or happiness you think you might have. I've lived with it all my life, and thanks to SparkPeople, I now understand that life doesn't have to be "all or nothing". Each day comes with its own joys and trials. You get through them without beating yourself up all the time. We often times talk better to our friends than we do to ourselves. That will all stop now. I value myself as much as I value my friends and family (which is a lot), and I'll begin to make positive changes in my health and fitness for my betterment. I can't begin to thank SparkPeople for all of the good advice, informative articles, encouragement, SparkTeam support, I could go on and on, but this website has saved my life in many ways. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Cheri...
