I see me last blog was back in November as we were moving my Mom. We moved her essentials in November. But, with the holidays are now moving the rest of her things. January 26th is when the moving truck is scheduled. After that we will have to paint the walls, clean carpets and find places for the rest of her furniture.
It's been a difficult last year in many ways. Yet, physically and emotionally I am much stronger than a year ago when I began my journey. I am apx 40 pounds thinner than when I began my journey. I have faced many obstacles to be where I am today: depression, high blood pressure, bursitis, my daughter's spinal surgery, my Dad's death, Mom having progressive dementia.
Some of days I am still having to continually renew my commitment to myself to continue. I have days of doubt and tremendous sadness. So, I will continue my journey as I began. One step at a time, not looking too far ahead. I will count every victory no matter how small each and everyday. I will find joy each day. I will remember to speak positively about myself. And, I will set some new goals for the new year.
