I am ready to truly start taking care of myself starting with positive affirmations and self talk. The negative self talk certainly is not working. So it's time to change that.
I am worthy of self care.
I am grateful for all that I am learning.
I am positive that I can make the changes necessary to have a healthy life.
I am confident and competent.
I am kind. So very, very kind to myself.
I am successful.
I am loved, appreciated and respected.

So happy to he here. I REstarted yesterday and had an amazing day. Maybe it was Marianne Williamson's meditation, maybe it was the increase in water intake, or taking all of my vita,ins/supplements, preparing my lunch or staying positive and focused....not sure what it was but all have contributed to!my wanting to get out there and take a walk today so...I'm outta here! Gotta get moving on this lovely Friday morning. Not sure who said it but..."Progress, not perfection." Smiles all around. Namaste.

Marianne Williamson writes so beautifully. Such soothing, poignant and profound words. I love spending time with her words. Her prayers are amazing. She writes that we build walls to protect ourselves and this leads to destructive activities. For me, it is food and lack of self care. Each brick on the wall has a word on it and she invites us to face the word and ask our Creator to assist us in tearing down the wall. It was a beautiful exercise. One that I shall surely repeat.
"Only the power of love can overcome the power of hate, and make no mistake about it;your unhealthy eating is an act of self hate. ".
Her prayer after addressing the wall...
Please remove the wall that I have built around me.
I have built it so strong,
That I cannot tear it down.
I surrender to You
Every thought of separation,
Every feeling of fear,
Every unforgiving thought.
Please, dear God,
Take this burden
From me forever.

I saw a fellow spark page have this blog entry and truly totally loved it. Thanks for the inspiration!
To my body,
I apologize. I am so sorry. I will make it up to you.
I am sorry for the ways I have abused you and misused you. I am sorry that I mistreated you with poor nutrition, overeating, binge drinking and poor sleep habits. I have neglected you. I have mistreated you and I have certainly also taken you for granted.
I am sorry that I chose sugar, chips, fries, candy, chocolate, alcohol and television when I should have chosen fresh fruits and veggies and exercise. I apologize for the late nights of mindless TV watching when I should have been resting so I could wake refreshed for exercising.
I apologize for the wasted hours of needless worry and self induced stress when I should have been meditating and surrendering my cares to God.
It is time to move on and do better. It is time to be respectful to myself and to honor my needs. It is time to be mindful of my past mistakes but only so I do not repeat them. Not to use them to beat myself up.
It is time. It is MY time.
Healthy habits, positive affirmations and surrendering my cares to God are the beginning. Daily goals, sparking and holding myself accountable are next. Planning my meals and honoring my exercise plans, getting to bed, limiting the Tv watching and computer time are necessary.
I am ready to be thoughtful, to take care of me, to reach my goals. My vision is to help others reach their goals. I believe that everything I am going through will make me better prepared to help others but for now....I need to help myself.

Happy 4th of July everyone! When I think of INDEPENDENCE today, I want to think about MY independence! How can I be independent and honor me?
I do understand and appreciate how this country gained independence . Thank you to all whose work and sacrifice made it possible for me to be independent and to think, live, feel and express myself!
Watching Joyce Meyer talk about how God sets us free. I need to remember that. Amen:-)
