A Chance

Saturday, September 01, 2012

It's only natural to struggle and to fail; to disappoint others and ourselves,
but sometimes we say the cruelest things to ourselves about ourselves
keeping ourselves weighed down in darkness, when we could be floating in light.
Unwittingly we destroy our own possibilities; how sad.
Speak peace and love to yourself. Give yourself a chance.
If you don't, who will?

    You sound so sad. I have been feeling what you posted a lot lately.Really, really down on myself. So guess what I did today? I took myself out with no one else. I put on some make up which I have not done in a long time, wore a nice out fit, jumped in my car, I turned up my special CD ( CHI ) music for balance & relaxation & with all windows rolled down with the air conditioner blowing on my warm face .I went to a new hairdresser & she shaped my frizzy hair into a new style ( I had a perm go bad on me a month ago ) she gave me a bottle of leave in conditioner to see if it works before I buy it, then I bought some mousse. Went to my favorite spa & bought my eye concealer I have dark inherited eye circles all women on my Dad's side has them, the concealer is called Youngblood only sold at certain specialty places, then they had some real nice mineral blush as I was out of mine.Then I took my self to Bon Ton & bought two pairs of Clark shoes navy, & black.Then I drove to a beautiful gift shop that was an old church from the early 1800's the stain glass windows are so beautiful with the light of the sun shining through. I am ordering lamp shades, I was tempted to by a beautiful clock, but put it back as I have enough clocks. I then stopped at a road side market & bought some lettuce.Arrived home & made a nice dinner for my husband ,my brother & I. Then sat on the porch in my favorite reclining chair on the porch with a good mystery book, as the water fall my husband made put under my picture window sounded so relaxing. What I did today was not anything great to other people, but to me I took myself out of my regular mundane day & I felt free, & I am still feeling good about it. (That haircut topped it off .) I am always having someone with me I can never get away with myself, I managed today & I felt so free.Maybe you need to take yourself out. I had time to think of what I was going to do with my eating habits also. Take care

I am more determined than ever to reach my goal. My mindset has changed. Usually when I get this close I sabotage myself, but I like the results I see. There is not much further to go. I will take one day at a time with a made up mind..

Last week I did not do too well. This week I increased my exercise and paid better attention to my eating. It worked as it should. I'm on my way again. I've got some challenges coming up. There's my anniversary trip and Thankgiving. I think I am understanding the balance. If I eat more, I must exercise more. Even with that my food consumption can not get out of control. I really do want to reach my goal by the end of the year. emoticon

    I don't know about you, but the end of the year is really stressing me out!! You have come so far! Give yourself credit for your accomplishments! You have proven that you have what it takes to see this thing through! You CAN do it!!
