1/25/08 FRIENDS

"Friends, how many of us have them? Friends, ones we can depend on." lyrics from Whodini's rap

email of the day subject was regarding friends. The lyrics from this rap are so true, how many of us have true friends? We call people our friends, even when they are truly just acquaintances. We have online friends, email friends, work friends etc....

Friends come in all different kinds and I think many times online friends learn more about us because it isn't a face to face thing. Or we are gathered on a website for the same reasons and so feel safe.

We all need friends especially when on a journey for health and weight loss.

So one of the emails sent to me today from Spark was regarding Happiness. The whole I can be happy when I.....for many of us on this website it is my happiness can happen when I lose or I am a certain weight.

When I was young in very early twenties I had that mindset, as time went on I realized fat or thin, ugly or beautiful on the outside doesn't really matter when it comes to happiness. It is all about the person you are. Sure we all have our bad days and aren't "happy, happy, joy, joy" each and every minute, but we can view things in a positive way more often than not.

Taking time to enjoy your life, not letting others ruin what you do, being resilient, doing small acts of kindness, these are things that can make each day a bit happier. My weight doesn't make who I am, it is just how the world views me and I refuse to be one of those fat people on Dr. Phil saying how I can't have a life because I am fat, that is just a cop out!

Not looking forward to this week. Saturday will be the 1yr anniversary of my mother's death and notice I am not as positive this week. I will get over it, but it is going to take time.

    Oh, I am so sorry about your mom... Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is with you. Just pray about it. He knows your feelings, emotions and can handle your burden. Just give it to him. May you have a blessed and peaceful week.
