In the words of " Eeyore " , .....Some days just look better , " UPSIDE DOWN . " !!
Anybody that already knows me , here on SparkPeople , knows how much I LOVE " Winnie the Pooh " , .... but, if you dig a little deeper, you will see that I LOVE " Eeyore ", equally as much ! ;)
He sure fits " my world " , today !
Just like he does, I am going to take something that could be looked at as " Oh bother " ,
and " turn it upside down " and see the " Sunshine , ( SONSHINE ) " in it. !
In a " Self-Help Recovery " Book that I once saw, right in the front , ..... it had a " Poem " that spoke VOLUMES to me. It referred to a " hole in the ground " and how to GET PAST IT , eventually ;)
The very last of the poem, stated the person " walking around the hole " and going on about their MERRY LITTLE WAY !
I have " fallen in the SAME HOLE " , TWICE , and , this next time, ...
I WILL WALK AROUND IT :0
Since I first started MY JOURNEY on August 1st, there have bee " struggles " , of course,
( we all have our little moments , ) ... But, 2 of them were LANDSLIDES.
Both times, I had just gotten down to " my very lowest weight " and was ready to go onto better and more beautiful things, when , ....... " you guessed it " , LIFE and CHOICES came to me and I FELL IN , " the hole. " ! ;/
I found myself in a situation with other people that " didn't care " and I let their " not care " INFLUENCE ME , and , ..............................
BUT, the " good news is " , I HAVE TAKEN THESE FALLS and " learned from them , finally.
They say " third time is the CHARM " , ... well , I know , now why the say that !
I AM " at my lowest weight " , now I am walking on the LEVEL GROUND and I have
" looked in that HOLE " and I DO SEE that it is a " bottomless pit " and FINALLY , I have learned to WALK AROUND it
With a THANKFUL HEART , today , First I thank God for HIS help and strength , in all of this , and then , of course , .... I thank HIM for EACH OF YOU that have been such " faithful friends " , thus far, and have JOURNEYED every step of the way with me.
I hope that all of this can be an ENCOURAGEMENT to YOU , today and that you , too can take your " OH BOTHER , " ( fall in the hole moments ) , and LOOK UPSIDE DOWN at them and learn from " MINE " as well as YOURS , too !
Blessings on each of you , today , ..wishing encouraging moments for you and YOUR JOURNEY and let's CONTINUE OUR PATH , together , completing our goals. ;)
I ALWAYS have " an listening ear " for ANYBODY that needs one ;)
