But now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians: 13
I don't know if anyone else caught the "Jeff Probst Show" yesterday, but I found myself glued to the story line. I'm sure if you didn't catch it, you can find the episode online. Two of the guests on yesterday's show experienced "near death experiences." These stories have always fascinated me, but the one thing that stood out in both stories was the overall message they both received. Both guests said the main message they received was that it's all about: LOVE, an overwhelming, unconditional love. It really made me start thinking about my life and what I have accomplished. More than that, it made me think about my legacy and what I hope to accomplish in whatever life I have left. What is it I want my children, family, and friends to remember about me once I am gone? I truly want to be remembered as a person who LOVED everyone. That's so easy to type, believe me, I KNOW how hard it is to love EVERYONE unconditionally. (This I suppose would include, my soon to be EX, right?) I'm still a long way from total forgiveness.... but I am working on it, and I hope someday I will see God's plan in all of this. I don't hate my husband... but I hate what he did to our family. Anyhow, today is a brand new day with no mistakes in it. I am trying first of all to love MYSELF. That being said, I am on my way to making positive changes and taking each new day as it comes. This entire weight loss journey is just that ....a journey! And every journey begins with just one small step.
Again if you didn't catch the show... look for it online. Or read the books that both guests have written. (I know I plan to read them.)
The two guest's books are:
Proof of Heaven: "A Neurosurgeon's Near-Death Experience and Journey into the Afterlife" by Dr. Eben Alexander
"Dying To Be Me" by Anita Moorjani
