Body: I had a pretty interesting (well to me!) realization yesterday. I was reading this blog:

And it was like a lightbulb went off for me. I had that condition years and years ago when I was 300+ lbs. I just passed it off as me having sensitive thin skin that darkened wherever it touched other skin. I had noticed casually and subconsciously that my skin was looking better but it never hit me until reading that entry that all the places I had skin darkening were gone. My knuckles, the back of my neck, patches on the sides of my feet I assumed were just dry skin, etc. So I'm just staring at my hands in awe, then checking all the places I remember having that dark skin and yep, all gone! Scary to know that I probably had Type 2 diabetes and never realized it.

Mind: I am attacking my finances head on, and I cannot tell you how good it feels to address this. Again, I am a head in the sand kind of girl when it comes to things I don't enjoy or don't want to face up to, but devoting myself to being mindful and responsible is changing all of that. I never thought setting up a personal monthly budget would be fun, but I am quite enjoying the feeling of my money being organized and accounted for. And I realized that once my car is paid off in November, that I can put enough in savings to get a new furnace and A/C for my house next year! And the next year after that, I can get my bathroom remodeled! That is so exciting to me!

Soul: Feeling hopeful, refreshed and energized for the things to come for me!

    Those light bulb moments when we realize that accountability to ourselves in financial matters are intertwined with physical, psychological, and emotional health... pretty powerful.

    Hopeful, refreshed, and energized! Those are some powerful feelings! Yay for you!

    That's fantastic that you're going to attack your finances head on.
