In the beginning of a new journey.

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

As I face the prospect of finding employment for the first time since I was 16. I thought I would feel dismayed . Instead I am encouraged as I pray and ask God for direction I know that this all is happening for the better and that God's got my back and I'm going to be alright. I really believe that and it is wonderful to feel hopeful when you are in the middle of despair. I lost 4lbs this week and since my new unemployment status I have been to the gym every morning and I am eating better. While I am working on the eptilitical machine I don't watch the tv attached I watch me and I envision my waist getting smaller as well my arms. It keeps me motivated to plug along even more. Today I pushed to 60 minutes and 5miles . I am so hyped. I see nothing but success for my new journey while I am still working on my old one.

    I really like your visualization of your waist and arms getting smaller. I believe the mind is incredibly powerful, and what your mind tells the body, it will do. Great job, & it reminds me to do my visualizations too. Best, -Lynn

    That is so beautiful and such a blessing! I had my first interview in the field yesterday. It went REAL well. I have to give them my transcript/degree when I finish. Only 2 weeks left! Woo Hoo!

    Have a wonderful weekend and God bless you and your family always! :0)

    I'm impressed by your approach to the situation you're in...rather than moping and getting depressed or mad, you're off to the gym, burning calories, taking advantage of the "spare time" on your hands. You have such a great attitude.

    And way to go on losing 4 pounds!

    What a great blog and an even greater perspective on your current situation. I am happy to hear you are staying encouraged and I know God will bless with you abundant opportunities. Congrats on the 4lb weight loss...just think of all the new work clothes you will have to buy soon with you dropping those pounds! :-)
