Negative Nelly here.....
If I had a towel I would throw it in right now . . . But, I will try to wait out the urge.
Today was my most disappointing day in a while. My intention of today's entry was to vent and spew negativity. I think instead I will share the positive things in my day. First thing this morning I woke up to the amazing smile of my two year old grandson!! At work, I helped a young boy process his feelings about his younger sibling having to go through chemo treatments. He left with a little smile and no more tears . . .for the moment. Another wonderful thing, my accountability partner sent me a great email that said we are on this journey together . . . Wow, that is powerful. Thank you Kay!
Hmmmm, my day wasn't really in the toilet . . .
I found on my desk a handwritten note from my new boss that expressed that he was happy I did not transfer to another position and he enjoyed my sense of humor.
So, I'm realizing that my day of defeat was defined by the food that I ate. . . What a small part of the day.
Yes, tomorrow I will strive again to make better food choices but I'm also going to make a list of the positive things that take place throughout the day.
Well, I feel pretty darn good right now! Blogging is pretty therapeutic.

    Hi; emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great Blog!!!! You got through your day, somehow inside the day it turned around & surprised you with blessings instead of woes. I will begin praying for you & your grandson.
    From reading this blog I feel you are stronger than you know. WOW to get a note from your boss, I never got acknowledged by my bosses I ever had. You are beginning to see small changes; that's the way it happens when you start out on this site you begin to see changes in small steps, teaching you to take things one step at a time, choose food one meal at a time, no one has to be perfect, you just make the choice to change one step at a time.

    Take care dear one, you are stronger than you know; you can get through one day at a time. Breathe, slowly intent has real power. May you find goodness inside your day.

    Many Blessings Always Debby emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
