"Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go."

Hermann Hesse


Another one with dual meaning, as it applies to our lives and to our SP journey. Letting go of all of our former bad habits, letting go of food that isn't healthy or fueling our bodies, letting go of the couch or chair and beginning to MOVE towards health, letting go of less than positive or favorable influences that may cause or make it easier for us to make poor choices. It's stepping in the right direction to let go of all of those things and go on a new path, towards health. I think each of us can also point to a time in our lives when letting go was the best thing we ever did.


Had a SUPER great day. Went to Indy to see DS & his beautiful family - all THREE of the grandsons. Went to even MORE garage sales with the daughter-in-law and snagged some great finds. I love, love, love garage sales!!!!! They're a surprise every time. Then we had lunch on the grill. BBQ chicken legs/thighs - it was SO good. Really enjoyed seeing all of them. The kids are so cute - 4.5 yrs/2 yrs/5 weeks. Came home & got the cardio walking done. Jetta had a ball playing in the water at DS's house - she's such a water dog. We take her everywhere with us, so she was in on the great day too.

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope your Saturday was wonderful & active!!! emoticon

    I love garage sales too. I feel like I have not gone to one in forever and a day. Jetta sounds like a fun friend. Great quote :)

    Nice quote and talk. Letting go or just say no to what is harming us instead of healing us.

    Good blog. Sounds like a great day. Confronting some stressful issues this next few days, need to remember to meet them and then release them. Thanks for posting.

    Quote hit home for me. Our sweet little kitty died. Gotta hang on to the good memories and let go of the grief.
