Finding My Groove

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

yes--I'm finding my groove--slowly but surely. I still haven't figured out how to squeeze out more time for "Sparking", and I am missing my friends here, but I am feeling good--tackling my cravings a little at a time each day, and the small steady gain I was seeing before, has been a small steady loss again.
I am thrilled with how I am just looking at that number every day and logging it--without getting all anxious/excited either way. It just is what it is, and I use the information to guide my choices throughout the day (ideally). Of course some days are tougher than others to stay on track as far as nutrition goes, but that is all normal stuff. We are not perfect, and we shouldn't expect perfectioin from ourselves (or others for that matter).
I am finding more and more peace as I talk with God every day and remember to give thanks for all that I receive and for all that I can give to others. Who would have guessed 20 years ago that I would finally come to a place where my first thought in the morning and my last thought at night--no matter what has happened in my day that may have been inconvenient or unpleasant to me--would be to thank God for all that I have--for each beautiful breath, moment, experience. There is truly beauty in everything; it just sometimes takes us-as imperfect humans- more work to find that beauty, and there is such joy in recognizing the beauty and blessings around us.
Have a great day/week Spark Friends!

    I agree it's important to be thankful and unfortunately we just tend to forget too often. emoticon
