Just another AMAZING day in recovery...
Had my identity stolen and a ceiling cave in at one of the rental properties...
So I laughed...
And I did not eat! :-)
Acceptance and surrender are my best friends on this journey ;-)~~
love, love, love 'em!!

I have no idea from where this comes. I just know that it came, in the very, same moment I sat here to write my daily blog, so here it is...
Life is a road along which there are piles of sh*t on one side, and rays of light on the other. EVERY DAY, both are there...regardless. That is the nature of the road. Trying to figure out why it's that way...attempting to disavow one side or the other...thinking we can rid our journey of the sh*t, is futile and foolish. Because the road is the road is the road.
The ONLY variable at the beginning and end of every walk down it...is ME.
'But I was pushed into the sh*t', some cry.
While this may be true, we still CHOOSE to sit and to stay in the sh*t, or we CHOOSE to get up and cross the road.
'But those who came before me sat in the sh*t', some protest.
And...??? That doesn't mean you have to. Get up and cross the road.
'But I've tried to get out of the sh*t and I can't', some declare.
That's because 'trying' IS NOT doing. Quit TRYING; just get up and cross the road.
'But everyone I know walks through the sh*t' some decry.
Then get new friends. And get up and cross the road.
And the least heard argument of all, but unfortunately, the most common reason we sit in the sh*t...
'But I don't deserve the light.'. And to that, Source says...
YOU ARE THE LIGHT!
NOW GET UP, MY LOVE and BE THE LIGHT!
If you knew who you really were and why you were here, you would never walk through the sh*t again.
Every, single day, I have a choice. I can walk through the sh*t or BE the light.
I choose to be the light...in spite of AND because of all the sh*t :-).
that was freakin' CRAZY...lololol I'm kinda crazy....lololol
But I'm still the light ;-)~~~~~~~
And in re-reading this, I discovered...that was all FOR and ABOUT...me.
thank you, you know who ;-)

Today, I am once again so very grateful for SparkPeople. I am becoming my intended self in this world, and that journey is helped along by the work I get to do here.
I posted on one of my Spark Spa team threads that I am grateful for food addiction because it has set me on a path to further awareness. Spark is the ONLY reason that I can be grateful for this thing I used to hate.
On Spark, I beat food addiction, instead of it beating me. There are no real words to describe this liberation. So I love...and I pay it forward, in response.
That's it...and that's all. And all is well :-)

I am grateful to have learned how to live a PRESENT life. For me personally, the past and the future are non-existent entities that at various times in my life have held me back from my becoming my INTENDED self. I realized it was ONLY because I gave them play in my mind, that they held such sway over me. So I chucked them :-). For me this works. Generally, I have very little use for anything other than this present moment, as the present moment is the only moment that EVER , ACTUALLY exists in reality. However, when it is HELPFUL, I am willing to review other spaces of time, whether they be moments which have passed, or those yet-to-come moments, for which some preparation might be wise.
One such space of time is the last three months I have spent recovering on SparkPeople. In looking back from April 10th until today, I am AMAZED and HUMBLED at the changes in my life and in my self. The transformation and metamorphosis I have experienced fills me with gratitude and humility. And the LOVE....THE LOVE...for those of you who have walked this road with me...changing yourselves, sharing your journey, helping me as I helped you...is OVERWHELMING. The POWER of what we can do FOR and WITH one another when we are transparent, supportive and generous is EARTH-SHATTERING!
Forget our bodies for a moment, if you will. If you are even remotely like me (as I know you are...we REALLY are all the same in this world ;-), the changes in your mind, in your soul, in your relationships are ENORMOUS!!! Really...when I consider THAT...who gives a fu** WHAT some dirty, white box on the bathroom floor says?!?! WE ARE HEALING, WE ARE LIVING, WE ARE CONNECTING to something so much GREATER than ourselves. SOMETHING SO VERY SPECIAL is happening here...something which has so VERY LITTLE to do with the weight of our physical form.
My main man Lao-Tzu says 'hope is as hollow as fear' because in engaging either, you are avoiding what 'IS', and I like that idiom. But if I did HOPE for one thing today, on the three month anniversary of this AMAZING RIDE I said yes to on 4-10-13, it is this...
MAY EACH OF YOU KNOW HOW VERY SPECIAL and IMPORTANT THIS PLACE IS and HOW INTEGRAL EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU ARE TO ITS SUCCESS!!!! Our attitudes and our words are so very MIGHTY. I bring the best I have of both of those here every day and I thank those of you who do the same, from the very bottom of my full and healing heart!
I love Spark! And I love YOU too :-) Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Three months down...a lifetime to go.... ;-)~~~~~

Today, as I prepare for sleep, I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
I am grateful for Spark and for every, single one of you who holds my hand and walks this road with me :-).
I am grateful for the changes in my life, in my home and on my body :-)
I am grateful for the two hairy boys...lol...asleep in the room next door, and all of the love and connection they share with me :-).
I am grateful, right this moment, to know what is REAL :-).
