some more thoughts

Sunday, January 08, 2012

This is my second attempt at this blog, as the first disappeared into the blogosphere.....

I came across this article yesterday, and it sort of resonated with me www.dailymail.co.uk/news

ean-help-lose-weight.html


I thought of the friend who used the expression " to chip away at clutter" and I thought of flylady and her reference to clutter being physical, emotional and body......and the idea that I can just chip away at it made me happy.

I thought of Michelangelo chipping away to reveal a beauty and a vision that he then shared with the rest of the world

I thought of another SP friend who summed up the hardest things to grieve, for that which might have been, and now never will be, and my friend's mother stuck in her anger against the universe, because where she is now is not what she signed up for

I thought of the C's in my life, my children, each of whose name begins with C, and just how important they are to me......I rather doubt that my future grandchild will follow this tradition though.....

I thought of other C's, such as
calm
cooking, something I love to do rather than just providing food
capability, hopefully more than this chap though
cardio, somthing to up in my life
and above all, the biggie, choice

Which brings me back to where I started.......

Choosing to write about things that mean a lot to me, which just might incidentally help me on my road to better health.....

    I think you are right...writing things down does make a difference. Thank you for sharing. Choice is good...so is Change! :-)

    Love the idea of chipping away at the clutter - the Michelangelo quote has always been a favorite of mine...“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

    And here's another C word that you're familiar with... Change.

    Choices....so many to make every day....I find I have to not fret the poorer choices I make and try to emphasize the better ones, and then not judge myself either way! I'm so happy to see your blogs, as always, I love how thoughtful they are, and illustrated as well! Guess I'm a visual gal...

    you enjoy might just do the trick. emoticon

    Yes, it really is all about making choices, isn't it? ...and here's another "c" for you "challenge". To me, it's the challenging things in life that make it more interesting. Then, of course, the word "interesting" brings us back to you.

    Life is good!

    I don't know about take one, but take two is a good one. Just a thought.
