Community: Just thinking how I can share the goodness in my life. So, after getting a massage I decided to do something for someone else: (1) bought gift certificate and (2) will knit an item to give to charity.
Yes, know how to care for myself and make time for myself, but, now I want to "widen my tent" to share with others. Have time and room in my life now for a social life! Seems I'm slowly building friends as I emerge from "an empty nest." Wow, what a change in my focus to feeling somewhat lost to ... slowly seeing the light. Still need encouragement, though!
Exercise: My health club will start a small group or will even match me with one other person so we can share the cost. So, excited and discovered how much I enjoy walking in the park with others around. Yes, I can use my treadmill alone at home, but, I definitely enjoy being around people.
Healthy Eating: Improving on my choices. Sweets remain a problem and I'll keep eating fruit to deter me from junk sweets. Discovered that a little sweet keeps me from over-eating the junk. Pleased with my progress.
Church: Since parenting is not the main focus of my life now, I have more time to give to church. Problem is I'm not seeing a program that needs what I have to offer. I've joined various groups and still yearning for more of a connection. So, moving forward - plan is to visit another church and continue being involved in my current church. If I have to keep searching - I will. Nothing happens if I stall and do nothing, but, I also recognize that there are times to stop, re-assess, and wait on God. Whew, if He would only send me a text (smile)! Prayers welcomed!
