New Boundaries Needed.

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Wow It's been a while since I last blogged. Oh so many possible excuses. My medications are still not quite right. So I've been out of sorts. Went to see the grandbabies.

I've been a grandmother for two years already. Time surely does fly.

So as far as my journey goes... I've been in limbo for a while. My weight hasn't really changed. Though my mindset is improving. In order to move forward I received a message from the Universe(?)

Practice assertive boundaries to prevent cave-ins under pressure. - Paula Eder
Then the following came across my path:
"We do not have to get caught in the middle of other people's issues.
-- Melody Beattie
Learning to respect boundaries, our own and other people's, eliminates much of the stress that hinders ..."

By having boundaries my actions will be more clearly defined. It is like having a routine or rules. I'm drawing a line in the sand that I shall no longer cross.

I'm doing the Oprah/Chopra free mediation that started on Monday.
Daily touching base on SparkPeople.
I've got my exercise routine.

So where do the new boundaries come into play. my food and some of my relationships. I am making progress but it is time to take more action, review and update my food rules.

Making changes... moving forward.

    Like your musings on boundaries -- and TRAVELGRRL's too.

    Boundaries mean we move forward in leaps and bounds!!

    How lovely to be a grandmother: for you and for the babies.

    Here's a quote about measuring food as a boundary that's from the book "Ravenous" by Dayna Macy. I liked it so much I wrote it down on a 3x5 card and have it on my desk:

    "Measuring, by its nature, requires me to pay attention. Measuring forms a container for my longings and boundaries for my lust. Without boundaries, I cannot find balance. Without limits, I cannot hope to be free."

    You can do this. Each day is a new beginning. Making changes can be difficult sometimes but I find making small changes each day gives me better focus on what I what to accomplish.
    Moving forward little by little will make great changes in the end. You are on the right track. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
