I Can Make it

Dear Diary
I have found that for the most part saying goodbye (to even the most unhealthy situations) can makes me feel sad, angry, or and evern ashamed – like I have failed in the most basic endeavor – yet another relationship, job, ect.

Yet I know for God’s Word has taught me so - holding on to these emotions keeps me anchored to the past.
There is nothing I can do to change what has already taken place.
My job is to fully engage with the present moment. I must take the next powerful step on this journey today. If I did not do it yesterday there is no point in promises to do it tomorrow.
I must remind myself that letting go is a step-by-step process.
It can be challenging, but trying to move forward while chained to the deadweight of the past is far more difficult.

I must be patient with myself.
I won’t ignore my feelings, (or swallow the with all the wrong food & drink) .
I won’t allow myself to get hijacked by them either.
I will acknowledge the pain and then determine to do any grieving that I must so that I can move on.

    How is your weight loss going? Are you finding time to get outside in this beautiful weather? The sun always cheers me up, especially early in the morning. Something about a rising sun suggests promise and hope. I am hoping you are living your life to the fullest, free of guilt.

    We all have guilt . . . take a deep breath, close your eyes, let it go. No one is blaming you except yourself. Forgive.

    Yes, Jazzy, u can make it through it! I did, so u can too. Some day soon I will share my story. If I can make it and survive my past, anyone can because of God's grace and unconditional love and forgiveness! (even tho it wasn't my fault). I have done a lot of grieving but I have found that it still continues @ times when a new incident comes up in the present. Someone once described grief like a pocket. With each grief incident a stone goes into that pocket and the stones never come out! So it is a cumulative effect each time u grieve! My dear, my pocket has broken through the floor and is on its way to China! LOL!

    Know that I continue to pray for you daily and think of u emoticon emoticon Your sister in Christ, Amy L
