Welcome April

Monday, April 01, 2013

Today is April 1st and I welcome the new month. It is the month on my birth and I begin it with the week off from teaching for spring break. It has been a hectic and stressful few months. I resorted to my usual coping mechanism of eating to relieve the stress, eating to soothe & comfort myself, eating for fun and eating poorly due to lack of time and exhaustion.

I have spent this first day of spring break here on Spark, reading, posting and reflecting. My 55th birthday is 22 days away. The gift I want to give myself is to be able to say I am on the way to being healthier. Everyone and everything here on Spark is pointing me in the right direction. I just have to follow the road that is laid out before me. For me, it has always been the "road less traveled".
