What is the value of a friendship? I have one friend that I have known for many years. I always felt I pursued the relationship the hardest, yet still we were good friends. I have another friend that I used to work with who has been the pursuer... Read more

So Easily Deceived

Wednesday, January 21, 2015      0 comments

I saw a program on PBS last night about when War of the Worlds first was broadcast. I found it fascinating that fear made people think they smelled smoke and heard things and saw things that their minds wanted them to experience due to what the... Read more

Change is Coming!

I continue to organize my house. It's not cleaning my house, however, my house appears cleaner as a result. Bit by bit I am getting rid of multiple items or items I no longer use. This includes clothing and kitchen items. It has been fun to s... Read more

It is so easy to return criticism for criticism and grumpiness for grumpiness. A verse I read in the Bible while in church yesterday has continued to run in my mind. I am trying to work on removing complaining from my life this year. It is much... Read more

The First Step

I am in a great mood today. I head back to work tonight. It is a short week for me. Everyone is trying to use up their PTO before the transition in March. I am trying to embrace change. I have had so much of it over the last two years. I know... Read more

Week Done

Thursday, January 15, 2015      0 comments

It has been a rough week. Yet I am doing well. Would have liked to have been a bit more productive. Got a new tablet so I should have no excuses for being on here. Was delivered to the house across the street. We weren't sure if we would ev... Read more

Leaving My Love Behind

Wednesday, January 14, 2015      2 comments

Well at work we are going through the third transition in two years. What makes this one different is that it will likely end in me no longer having a job. The company talking over doesn't have credentials for substance abuse, which means the... Read more

Wanting. Control

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      1 comments

I realize that not all that my parents taught me was good or right. I have come to grips with some of it. I am sure there will be more to deal with in the future. My dad's side of the family was very jugemental. There were, what was to them, goo... Read more

I'm having a good time organizing my life. I have never been an organized person. It always seemed like so much work. In the process I am de cluttering my house which is so necessary. We have our house, my in-laws house and my parents house al... Read more

Wow! I just figured out part of why I have trouble losing weight or maintaining it without Sparkpeople. I have a distorted notion of what full is. I put on weight partly because I stuffed myself several days in a row so that my body thought i... Read more

That's What Gives Me Hope

Wednesday, January 07, 2015      1 comments

I have to laugh at all the ways people try to lose weight. They put the top choices on the CBS morning show. Gayle said to just put the fork down! That is the key. Just consume fewer calories! When I track my calories, I am amazed that I ca... Read more

I know this will sound kinda silly given this website, but I found three people who suffer as I do last night. I attend Celebrate Recovery every Monday night. It is not just for those who suffer with alcohol and drug addictions. Three of us i... Read more

One Day, Thought, Decision at a Time!

I was amazed at how my first day of organizing went. Got rid of old tennis shoes that I did not need. Closet looks great now! I am planning what small project to do today. Just like my lifestyle changes in my eating, I can make small lifesty... Read more

Weight Loss Organization

Saturday, January 03, 2015      1 comments

I read a spark article today that opened my eyes a bit. I have struggled for a lifetime to become better organized. I thought routine was the answer to my success, and in a way it is. But the basis of my success is more likely organization! ... Read more

New Year Motivation.

Thursday, January 01, 2015      1 comments

I know I can do this. I have gone backwards in the last year due to not having a computer to track with. I am back to having one again so I am hoping my motivation will return. It is frustrating to lose ground, but I have not forgotten the com... Read more
