Focus is happening & helping me, too!
I find when I am lonely, which doesn't happen very often, as I enjoy my time with me, I volunteer for something. I just go into the place I want to do something for AND tell them I have an hour or 2, right now, & what can I do to help? They are ALWAYS SO happy for the help. That way I don't have to commit myself to a long term thing. I travel a lot. I've been to senior centers, animal shelters, Boys & Girls clubs, even bell ringers. Wherever I am inspired to help, whatever my hearts desire is for the moment.
Also, this is the time I find out new things about me. A new healthy meal, try clothes on that maybe to big, finally. I learn new dances, etc. I'm learning Gangnan, right now. Easy & fun! I take time to really daydream.... what do I really want IF money were no object. I dayDREAM really BIG! This is the time I find out what I may have missed in my very busy life!
When I'm stressed, I take a bath! I'll add a cup of tea, lovely music & great bath oil. I just relax & let my worries, go. I take very deep breaths & visualize my dreams coming true! I actually stay in the tub, as I drain the water. I see everything I want released, going down with the water. I do this several times a week. I just get off the world & spend time with me!
AND as far as illness, SNOWANGELDEVA, you are SO right! We can ONLY do the best we can & be happy for that! I have been assessing my course, since last year, during Halloween, when my Sweetheart went in for a back operation. Our entire lives have changed. It was our wake up call! He is down 90# & me 43 or so. I can walk a 5K in 70 minutes! This is HUGE for us!
As I have said before, I prayed for an answer to my weight situation. I found Spark People, the next day! My prayers are being answered, daily! I KNOW this is why this program works for me. I never take Spark People for granted. It is such a blessing in all of our lives!
