Have not been...

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I have not had much time to blog. I get on less and less time. But I want to talk about when and how I feel when I eat and this is a good venue. So I got up last night and had yogurt and sardines and crackers! I ended up eating them while watching the so you think you can dance show I taped.
I should have danced with them.

    But you didn't mention how you *felt*. You only mentioned what you at and what you watched. How how were you feeling??

2nd Blog today

Monday, September 21, 2009

I do not know why I am so sad, but it is because I am doing things that I felt would be helpful but no one else wants to step up and help.
I have to keep my nose out of things that are none of my business.
Keep me on the things I am actually able to control.
Like how much I eat and how and how much I exercise.

    The best way you can get yourself into trouble is by putting your nose, ears and lips where they don't belong. The things that you are doing that you think are helpful, were they requested of you or did you just do them?


When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving advice and you have not done what I asked.

When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn・t feel that way, you are trampling on my feelings.

When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problem you have failed me, strange as that may seem.

Listen! All I asked, was that you listen not talk or do - just hear me.

Advice is cheap; ten cents will get you both Dear Abby and Billy Graham in the same newspaper, and I can do for myself; I・m not helpless.

When you do something for me that I can and need to do for myself, you contribute to my fear and weakness.

But, when you accept as a simple fact that I do feel what I feel, no matter how irrational, then I can quit trying to convince you and can get about the business of understanding what・s behind this irrational feeling.

And when that・s clear, the answers are obvious and I don・t need advice.

Irrational feelings make sense when we understand what・s behind them.

Perhaps that・s why prayer works, sometimes, for some people because God is mute and he doesn・t give advice or try to fix things.

He :just listens and lets you work it out for yourself.;

So please listen and just hear me. And if you want to talk, wait a minute for your turn; And I・ll listen to you.

Anonymous: :Listen; was found in David Bailey and Sharon Dreyer・s book, Care of the mentally ill (1977)

    It's true. Sometimes we have to stay out of the picture until we're sure it's the right time. I agree. Taking care of ourself is always right. Other people need to see the attention you pay to staying healthy. God bless. emoticon

Things Happen

Sunday, September 20, 2009

There are things that happen that make life difficult.
But when there is no obvious solution I like to sit under my canopy and write. While my cats sleep under the table. And while the humming birds fly safely overhead.
I allow my higher power to solve the issues.
I accept the answers that come.
I accept that sometimes the answer never comes.

I figured it out. Meebo is case sensitive and I will notify everyone that was the problem.

Look I have not been able to sign in on Meebo and when I do there is no one to talk with to get my

I can get on facebook through yahoo and so what good is Meebo if I cannot talk or leave messages for others who are on my friends list?

My husband's Aunt Carmie's daughter live near L.A. and this is a picture they took from their house. Pretty impressive. It looks like a volcano.
It is the fires in the mountains outside Los Angeles.
Last time I heard it was only partially contained.
It reminds me of what happens when my eating gets out of control.
My world goes up in smoke. I am ashamed. I feel powerless.
But in reality. One of the things I can control is what I put in my mouth.
I have a friend who always purchases her own food.
green peppers, avocado, tuna, tomatoes. dried fruit.
While we are eating the wrong stuff she is eating the correct food for her good health. I am so proud of her. I want to be proud of me!

    My daughter lives in Hollywood - the other morning there were ashes on her car... scary - but getting contained I think.

I think you are doing great! Making progress - one day at a time will finish what you have started.

Don't worry about what you did or didn't do or eat yesterday - but think about what you can do today!

    Wow Maria! When I first saw the picture, I thought it was a pretty sunset or sunrise and then about 2 seconds later I realized that it was probably the fires! It kind of made my heart sink to my stomach, thinking how something so awful and powerful can be so destructive. The people that live there have been in my prayers. Blessings, Sherri
