Wow, I just check my SparkPage and saw so many comments on my last blog.
For a month now, I have been doing a blog on Blogspot and viewed 327 times and so far have only 1 comment! So I think I'll start also blogging here more often.
Do any of you remember the British singer, Susan Boyl? Well, she captured our hearts with the song "I Have A Dream". This morning, looking out at the ocean and the sunshine, and wonder of our planet, I can relate to that song. Now, I'll bet you are thinking my dream is to be skinny? Wrong! (No worries, I used to think that too.)
My dream is "TO LIKE MYSELF". This requires having enough respect for myself to know in-my-pink-little-heart that I am doing the best I can. The best I can do...what a mouthful! And what does it mean? Who knows? I knew what that meant when I was in college. Even though I did not know what Summa Cum Laude meant, and wasn't trying to earn honors, I did know what "my best" was. And I worked for it. I remember those nights after I put the kids to bed, that I would study at the kitchen table into the wee hours of the morning. Where is that drive now! At 64 years old, I want to earn "honors" in life. The lazy, procrastinating, fat me is shivering in her boots right about now! And she should be. With my Higher Power's help, her days are numbered!
Now my goal is to try to find that "inner me" that always wanted to give 110%. Because friends, that girl has been on a sabbatical for waay too long. I've got to find her before it's too late.
I saw my diet counselor yesterday and shared about not having any energy. She gave me a vitamin shot and I felt better almost within the hour. I came home and went for a walk...only a half-mile...but for me that was like a half-marathon. Tune in again for an update on the murder of the fat, lazy, procrastinating me! ( Is it murder or suicide? Either way it's death to the fat lady!!)
Thanks for reading. I would love comments.
