Holding on to the hard things lightly
Monday, December 03, 2012
An acquaintance recently told me that life gets easier when you learn to make space for the things that cause you distress. Stress, anxiety, sadness, loss...all the things that tend to derail me. I've spent most of my life being overweight. At my heaviest, I weighed 324. That was some years ago. I was down to 208 2 years ago and I'm holding steady at 215 - 225 right now. In the last 5 years I've been through the passing of my mother, a divorce and last week the passing of my father. It's been a rough couple of years, but I'm trying to wrap my head around this concept of holding things lightly. I recognize the need make space for the business of taking better care of myself. SparkPeople is part of this process for me and every day, I'm trying to do one thing better.
