Joyatlast's car is getting that uncharacteristic "lived-in" look.
As it turns out, birding, like other sports and hobbies, requires its own backpack. It needs to be in the car at all times because you never know when a certain prospect may fly into view or you'll have a free moment. A case of water is on the ready. My heavy coat was left on the seat from a frosty morning that turned into a warm afternoon. Add to all that my TWO traveling school bags, occasional bike and swim bag and ever present car bag. Life is messy.
I'm wondering why it is so hard to get back on Sparkpeople when my heart never left at all.
Is it possible I was cocooned here many eons ago making transition and have since flown away?
Losing weight has never been my aim here, oddly enough. Dealing with the life issues preventing me from successful maintenance took precedence. Staring face to face at your own character flaws is not easy. This community of cyber friends made those tough times not only bearable, but you made me feel courageous in the attempt. How can I ever stray far from that kind of acceptance!!
My life looks very different today than it looked nearly 4 years ago when I landed here.
Birding has brought images front and center I've never even noticed with my natural eyes. In the same vein, my soul has been healed thus changing its perspective completely.
I deleted all my blogs in a symbolic gesture of "burning my bridges". No place to return or relive the past - good or bad. There is much to do!!
