Change in Attitude = more Gratitude (and less whining)

Monday, November 01, 2010

So after yesterday's blog, I'm almost overwhelmed with the support that this community has given me. Blog comments, spark mails, goodies, and comments on my spark page and team threads.

I want everyone to know that I have come to feel a great peace about my decision to not do any running or walking for the next two months. Yoga and strength training will be my movements of choice.

Gratitude in what I already have in my life will replace the frustration about what I do not have. I am so lucky to live where I live, and to have the family and friends that surround me.

Thank you to you all for helping me to realize this.

Peace feels so much better.

On the big scheme that is my life, this PF is a bump in the road, that I recognize, but refuse to let control me anymore.

    I hope the PF is slowly healing with the rest you are getting and as the other ladies say, you have a great attitude'

    Love the positive attitude. Sixty days will fly by. You may be even more charged up and ready to go after a few months. Also yoga is great and really helps to relax your body and mind. You also get more flexibility and better balance that helps prevent injury. Also strength training is great to prevent osteoporosis and you get really toned and look terrific in clothes (not a bad side effect).
Today was a challenging day for me too. But I just have to pinch myself and say,"I have a great place, good health, some good friends, and I am still Sparking!"
Hang in there! emoticon

    Gratitude is the present moment - woohoo! This is a 4 step path to your dream life:

1. Gratitude makes you love your life and elevates your mood.

2. When your mood is elevated, you think good thoughts.

3. Thoughts become things.

4. You live the life of your dreams.

    Take care of yourself and don't rush things. I had PF a few years ago and it took a long time to heal. I was on crutches for 6 weeks and it just didn't feel "right" for over 6 months.
