Hello, Spark friends;
I need to say how grateful I am that I have all the tools I need to pursue healthier choices for myself. But, it turns out healthier choices are much bigger than food and exercise. Once I realized I could make changes in those two areas, it expanded and sparked other parts of my life.
I feel radiant right now. I exercised for about an hour today. My house is clean. I sold my car last week. I love my job. I pack my lunch and plan meals. My partner and I are moving next week to a slightly smaller apt. to lessen our financial costs. I have a healthy and fulfilling relationship. I am getting control of my finances. I read books. I don't eat meat anymore. I am learning more about technology and starting to get familiar with some programming languages in my free time.
I just feel like things have fallen into place and I am actually living my life instead of bad things always "happening to me." I am not 120 pounds. I am 208-211 pounds depending on the day and life is amazing.
I have changed my life. I didn't know how at first. But, I slowly made choices that reduce stress, match my values, and bring me closer to my goals. I feel like this is much bigger than the 100 lb. weight loss that I though would make me happy. That might come and that would be great, too. But, today I am just grateful. Happy Thanksgiving.
Share the spark,
