Be kind to yourself

Sunday, July 26, 2009

May the world be kind to you, and may your own thoughts be gentle upon yourself.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Affirmation: Today, I will be gentle with myself.

Let today be a day to cut yourself a little slack, a day not to be overly demanding.

These are such an amazing statements. How hard are we on ourselves on a daily basis? I know I am. One positive note is that by being on teams and SP we are, i know I am relearning not only healthy lifestyle but how to treat myself. Not like days of old rewarding with food. Rewarding with kindness to our selves and recognition of how many positive steps we take on a daily basis.
Sure we stumble and fall flat on our fannies, but we are human and there are bound to be slip ups.
One day at a time and sometimes one baby step or even one moment at a time is all we need to move on.
Never forget to reach out to those who have their hands outstretched. With friends the bumpy roads seem to get smoother.
Have a great evening.
Many Heart hugs to all.

One for the Books, had to share

Saturday, July 25, 2009

I just read an article that said a British woman had to lose weight to be considered eligible to adopt a child. If that is Not discrimination what is???
Here is the link to the story. What next, You cannot get into Medical school to be a doctor or Nursing school to be a nurse because of weight.
Bless that lady she lost over 100 pounds and was able to adopt. But where does it end. We are all human beings. We all cry tears, cut us and we bleed, hurt our feelings and we are sad.

Just had to share

    That is something and it is like saying that all the parents who are overweight aren't good parents.

    Obama's new health plan will tie into having people eat right and exercise. That is wonderful until they start somehow penalizing us for being out of shape.

    Catholic Charities also discriminates in this manner. We read that line in their adoption packet, and we never went back. Even if they didn't implement it, it made me angry to see such blatant discrimination when there are thousands of children waiting to be placed into loving homes.

    Its so frustrating, living in our society. Half of everyone says we have to learn to love our bodies and the other half says we have to look like super models. Its awful, fat people really are the last acceptable discrimination.

words I needed to be reminded of...

Monday, July 20, 2009

Sometimes when you least expect it, somebody sends you something to give you a lift. This happened to me tonight. I wanted to pass it on so if somebody else needs a lift it is here too.

Life may no be the party we hoped for.....
but while we're here we can still dance~unknown

Life is short
Break a few rules
Forgive quickly
Kiss slowly
Laugh uncontrollably
Regret nothing that made you smile

I really needed to hear ( or see!) words like those tonight. I am a new member and don't quite know my way around yet, but I saw your blog and just want to let you know that it touched me. It's been a long, difficult day and the sayings helped put a new perspective on the problems.

Don't know if I am making much sense or not....thanks for sharing.

Link for an article on Nutrition and Chemo

Sunday, July 19, 2009

A dear friend is going through Chemo and asked about Nutrition and Chemo. I found this great article and wanted to share. I thought it would be better to post the link.



Had to share this....

Saturday, July 18, 2009

I just received this from fellow team mate Smilingeyes2 and it lifted me so much that I had to share it with anybody who wants to see it.
It made a big difference in how I am going to view things and above all myself. In my life and my thinking and how I relate to others.


I am humbled and grateful for this chance.
