This week has been a real upset of my fantasy about the first week of Spring and my fantasy about weight loss !
I started off sloshing around in the two inches of wet snow. Even in the snow the birds get it, they know it is Spring. I heard chirping and calls even amidst the snowfall. It gave me a real thrill to hear those sounds. It dashed my hopes that the hoping for the trees, that they will have their first buds, may be a bit premature.
The chirping also kicked-off my dogs nervous anxiety about the world around him. When he heard those calls and chirping, he quickly wrapped himself around one of my legs and hid between them in fright. I comforted him. Then took him into our home and began playing with him to relieve his fears.
So at that moment I realized: I have been obsessing about other facets of my life and have not been focusing on me. I focus on Spring, my Daughter who is grown, or I worry about my Husband,the dog, my business.
Then I thought, if I could only channel a 1/3 of he energy on me and let myself be happy, instead of self-destructing I can find my weight loss goal.
Today, I begin that focus!
Does anyone else go that extra mile for others and not for themselves?
