Processing life as it is...Acceptance...Peace. I am a single mom of three healthy children. I have a job with health insurance. I have a roof over my head. I have a reliable car to drive. I have a nice warm cup of coffee in my hand. I can enjoy my life as it is right now in this moment...I love Paul's words in the bible...that he learned to be content in whatever situation he found himself in. I, too, can do it is the world we contain inside of ourselves that impacts how we process what is going on outside ourselves. My world is a lot more comfortable than his world ever was. Peace is processing life as it is right now...I am at a weight that I don't like but can accept and am making daily efforts to change...I don't feel ugly I just feel uncomfortable and would like that to be different in the future. I can accept myself as I am right now. I am not my body, I am not a number on a scale...I am so much more than that. Blessings.

    You and I have a lot in common. We are happy with simple things and can be content even when things are far from perfect. I hope your load is light and your blessings are many.

    I have to keep reminding myself how much God has provided. I get frustrated with things but when I remind myself of this I find so much more peace.

Thank you for reminding me of this today.

I am so much more than that.

    Excellent reminders! I like the way you think!!
Dr Wayne Dyer was one of my first teachers of the woo-woo stuff (which I love and live), and I'm also participating in Deepak and Oprah challenge. :)

Nice to "meet" you! emoticon
