Dear Me .... (Pre-challenge ITC)

Monday, June 06, 2011

Winter is just a memory and spring is near the end, summer is about to start! Sorry I wasted so much time when I should have been paying more attention to you, giving you the love and nurturing that you deserve. Seems that I have often put your needs behind the needs of everyone else in your life. You're busy, I get it, life doesn't care what it is that keeps you up at night, or the darts that life seems to shoot at you from all directions. Life doesn't care but I do.

I care that you get enough sleep, enough exercise, enough healthy foods to nurture you thru the storms of life. I care that you are not forgotten in the mix of things and that you show yourself some self-love and 'atta girls' and a pat on the back now then. You deserve that! I'm sorry I have spent so much of my time all these years ignoring you instead of listening and responding in a positive and healthy way.

Now begins the summer challenge! Naturally I hope to lose weight but even more so I hope to get tuned in to YOU. To let you know every day that I'm happy my body still works. I'm grateful that you've carried all this weight for me and allowed me to still walk and breathe on my own. You've done all you can and now it's my turn to take care of you!

At the end of this challenge I hope that you and I have become BFF's, that we trust each other and that we aren't afraid to show love and devotion to US. We are worth it!

See you in 11 weeks!



My mantra for this challenge:
''I must lose the weight
before it is too late''

    So good to embrace ourselves and love ourselves just as we are. You are being the best friend you can and I have a feeling it's going to be returned. Love yourself well, Kelly!!!

    It shows strength and courage to apologize, especially to ourselves! Once we acknowledge what we neglected or abused, we must endeavor to treat ourselves with more respect and consideration. Think about it: if we neglected a friend, then apologized, then kept neglecting her, what would our friend do? The addage goes: "Treat others as you would want others to treat you." I say: "Treat yourself as you treat others." emoticon

    Hi Kelly....what a nice letter you have written to yourself. In times of stress, read it over and over until you have it memorized and can pull it to the forefront whenever you need it. Being your BFF is the best thing you can do for you.

Joplin is only about an hour away from where I live.
My sis-in-laws aunt and uncle live there, they were victims of the tornado. The aunt was dug out of the rubble at 4 a.m. the day after but the uncle died and his body was found on the 2nd day. One of my young cousins knew a boy from Joplin, his body was found today.

It's so close to home and everyone feels the loss. It's so horrible!
There are still so many people missing, please keep everyone involved in your prayers.

Yesterday I asked for prayers for my cousin's baby boy who was born with a horrible illness, Baby K, died peacefully in his mother's arms at 4:10 p.m. this afternoon. He did not make it to his first birthday.

Thank you all for the prayers!

To my sparkfriends,

My cousin has a beautiful little boy who is just a few weeks shy of his 1st birthday. He was born with a terrible illness and has only a short time left in this world, probably a matter of hours. Soon he will get his angel wings and fly into the hands of his Heavenly Father.

His parents are having a very difficult time and they very much need to be lifted up in prayer. He is surrounded by his loving parents, grandparents and special people in their lives.

Thank you for praying for them!
