Breathe and Reflect


Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Okay , before I came into the work place , I went to a meditation room and just sat and breathed and prayed and meditated, working for Providence it is nice to have either a chapel or meditation room to go too it really has helped.

As advised by my awesome sparkfriend , JAMIELOGICAL I am reflecting today the things I have accomplished and done for myself and celebrate those today . So thank you Jamie for bringing that to my attention ( I do listen sometimes!!)

I survived four years of financial hardship and stress main cause unemployment for my husband.

Our marriage survived and got stronger, I love that man more than my own life!

We fought to save our home and won the appeal for a loan modification

This is about week four of non emotional eating, it hasnt been perfect but it has improved a great deal , one thing has helped I am writing in here daily now and that is good therapy for me and if I help others that is an added bonus , plus I just appreciate my spark family more than words can say.

My stress/anxiety has a name , Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, and I have a good start on how to deal with that in a healthy way , and knowing that it is not here to stay ,

Things that help that I am going to try are:

More Outdoor activities I went on a hike last weekend it felt so good, and doing my research they say that is something that does help.

If I need it I will get professional help if I feel it is neccessary so far I don t because I acknowledge and I know this is not going to stay in my life

I started school orientation big , not big, HUGE step for me to improve my professional life

I am working on my weight loss one day at a time

I am learning how to deal with things in a healthy manner

So I am reflecting , taking a break and just breathing ,

May the Peace of God be with all my Sparkers today!

    AWesome plans and your outlook on life is certain a winning one. Somedays the best thing we can do for us is take that moment .. of just quiet and peace and realize how far we have come.. how many positive changes we have made..Those peaceful moments to help us refocus and revitalize our determination to be free of emotional eating.

Best wishes .. Keep on you Fabulous Sparkler .. keep on .

    Aw, I'm so happy you took my advice! You have accomplished so much in the past few weeks and you deserve to take some time and reflect on the progress you have made. You are doing sooooo well and I think it's important you recognize that so it can motivate you to keep going.
