06/18/2019 - I'm not happy with myself. I know I should be, but I'm not. I don't have motivation to do anything about it right now. I've lost 6 family members in the past 3 years. My mom, my sister, a brother-in-law, 2 cousins and my ex-husband. I cannot seem to get out of the rut I'm in. I am told to quit living in the past but they were my past. They were to be my future as well.

Since my mom's death July 1, 2016 I have put almost 30 lbs back on of the 45 I lost. I can feel it in my bones, the way I walk, the way I breathe and mostly I can feel it in my heart. It breaks for what used to be.

My goal someday is just to get up out of bed without feeling so sad. I've never dealt with depression, but I know that's what I'm going through. At first I thought it was grief, but I think it has gone beyond that.

Today I'm trying to make changes. One day at a time to re-write me. To begin to be happy again. Something I've lost for the past 3 years.

My Goals:
1. Start new. Don't worry about what used to be, or how many times I've tried before, but concentrate on the here and now.

    It is US who gets in our own way. We block the flow of freedom. We say no instead of yes. . . because we’re scared. We have blind-spots. We (don’t) believe … our own power. Laura Munson

    Is your intention to be happy? As much as we . . . say, “Of course . . . “, . . . we tend to cling to our pain. . . dwell in the victim stance. Suffering becomes . . . our normal. Laura Munson

    The best thing you could do is master the chaos in you. You are not thrown into the fire, you ARE the fire. Mama Indigo

    You can’t picture DON’T in your mind. If you say, “I don’t want to have debt”, you’re picturing debt! Instead, say, “I want to be financially free”, or “I want to be wealthy”. That’s how you want to picture yourself. Michael Hubbard
