Guess What?

Saturday, June 24, 2017

Good morning dear Spark friends!

I woke up this morning and realized that today is the 24th of June already. SIX months from today will be CHRISTMAS eve. Can you believe it? Time sure flies when we are busy and active all the time. emoticon

How much weight can I lose if I REALLY REALLY Focus for the next 6 months? That gives me around 180 days to do this. I can do this and I will do it. It is TIME for me to get back into the SWING of daily exercise. emoticon
I realize my life has changed in the past 5 weeks + 3 days. I also realize I need to GET GOING and become myself again. I will start today to be more -Determined, Strong and Focused. emoticon
I know I can do this with the grace of GOD on my side.
"God is good all the time. All the time God is good." A good friend gave me this verse a few
years ago and it does ring true. His gifts are there for us (all of us). I just need to remember to reach out to Him and ask HIM for continued guidance each day to get me through this loss in my life and help me to know HOW to move on with life. Changes are never easy as we all know. Acceptance is a hard process, but with my strong Faith, Positive attitude and close friends and family support I know I will be myself again. Another close widow friend told me
"It does get easier, but, it never goes away." So I do have many wonderful people who are
close to me. I am going to do this and It will not be easy. However, I will make up my MIND to cherish the memories and remind myself I am So very Blessed in so many ways. emoticon emoticon emoticon
Thanks for reading and sharing your feelings with me if you like. Life is good and it is what we make it. Have a wonderful day and remember to count your blessings. Life is short too and remember to Enjoy every moment and spend time with loved ones. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Stay active and eat healthy and Make a Plan and stick to it!
hugs to all,
Irish Ei
p.s. Thanks also to so many of you that have expressed concern to me at this difficult time in my life. I do hope to get back to posting again to my Groups that I am a member of. emoticon

    You have the strongest support system of all in your Faith. Keep asking for strength and each day will be better and you will feel stronger. Your friend is right...............it doesn't go away, but because of your strength, it does get somewhat easier.

    I wish you the very BEST.

    May I recommend a book? Option B by Sheryl Sandberg. I found my copy at Sam's Club and my daughter found hers at Costco.

    You are stronger than you think. Our God is beside you all the way and the good thing is that you already know that. Your loved one has his own place in your heart and that's where he will always be. Some day when you remember him, you will smile instead of cry,you will remember without the pain feeling like a knife in your chest. Someday does come , my friend. Hang in there.

    I'm so sorry I missed your message about your beloved passing away and you have my sincere condolences on your loss. Acceptance of this finitude to which we are all liable sooner or later is such a difficult but necessary step as we move through life. Nothing about it seems easy to me, but I guess it's just about doable with faith, family and friends to support you. I know you have that. I agree with your friend that it does get easier but it never goes away -- which is a lovely tribute to the love you shared when you think about it. I hope that your fitness challenges will give you a focus and renewed energy for life. Many blessings, Debra
