I know these words in my heart and in my head. I am still working at knowing them in my bones. It is still good to have a reason for remembering them, and I thank you all for that reason.

As so often happens, SP cut the link in half. You need both halves to get to the page.

I wrote a poem for myself. Not sure I believe it yet, but you may want to read it for encouragement.

So glad to have been of help. Think it was time for me to reread my own words anyhow, so you helped me.

Hugs,

I hope this doesn't sound too fluffy for you... this would be a good time to work on forgiveness. This is not a gift you give someone else, but one you give yourself. And you are the first person you need to forgive (and often are the last).

Holding onto resentment is said to be like continually drinking poison yourself, and waiting for the other person to die. Not very smart, is it?

"We practice compassion through acts of forgiveness, replacing resentment, anger and hurt. We understand forgiveness when we realize that every act is either an expression of love or a call for love." - Mary Manin Morrissey

"Your heart is the temple where God should be enshrined. Your good thoughts are the flowers, your good words the hymns, your good deeds the rituals. And love is the offering." - Mata Amritanandamayi Ma (also known as Amma)

If you need more words of encouragement, or if these missed the mark slightly and you'd like me to try again, just ask.

Hugs,
Moss

This morning i have been crying a lot. I am angry with myself. i hate way too many people for stupid reasons. i tend to wallow in my own self-pity for something i want or want to be but am too afraid to seize the oppotunity to make it happen. I realize that too much of these things are unhealthy and can lead to a block in loosing my weight. I am crying a lot this morning because i honestly don't have a choice now. My body is telling me that it is time to spiritually do a overhaul on my life and emotions. My pain right now is deep but needs to start healing. I need to let go and the tears actually feel good. i can't seem to stop. maybe i will when i am done. it is hard to type through the tears but i need to get all of this out before it litterally kills me. Why do i hold on to things so long??? why is it so much easier to hate than to love???? Why am i so messed up???? I am trying to make it better. I know i will succeed because i have the mother with me right now. i can feel her. i can not cry when my family is around because i am too busy being brave or busy. Now is a great time though. i did exercise and this didn't happen until 2 min ago. i guess i am just venting right now.sorry to have vented your ears off. lol. have a great day all!!!!!
