It's international 'pi' day!

I'm trying to resurrect my blogging habit, and today seemed as good a day as any.

For the longest time, I've found myself DEEP in thought... and in living... feeling and experiencing my journey in ways that leave me without words. Everything runs DEEP with me these days... words seem to be superfluous, and a waste of time... not sure they're important to anyone but me and my own experience anyway... and that idea no longer disturbs me in any way, LOL.

I also found this winter extremely HARD... darker, colder, emotionally isolating... but joyous and life-giving in my silence. I've grown stronger, truer, more confident in my convictions... shackles opened and wounds healed.

Maybe I simply had to 'cocoon' ... I know I certainly feel as though I'm struggling to unfold my wings and break free of this place. The desire to fly once again is STRONG.

I'm breathing in the dawn of SPRING and excited for whatever comes next....

Why I'm Still Here... my SparkJourney Saga

No more Mrs. Doubtfire... or Picture UPDATE at nearly 100 lbs. ELIMINATED!

What I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Losing a Lot of Weight

How I Am Eliminating 'EXCESS Weight'

(ponder this some and you come to see this SPARKjourney in a whole new light)

I'm still maintaining.

(It occurs to me... next to my marriage, and raising my daughter, this is the longest I've been committed to and invested in anything... I don't know if this an inspiring, or sobering thought...)

(I started my journey at 250 lbs. & over 50% BMI... Obese Class III)

(...it's best to never forget from whence you came. Those who don't acknowledge history are doomed to repeat it.)

    A spark of divinity...no words. A cocoon this winter, I feel you there. A true bugger of a winter! Spring is the perfect time to release and emerge. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, your energy, your spark...

    Sounds like some healing on the inside. -- Hope you are finding better sleep.

    So good to 'hear' from you.

    How could I forget that today was Pi Day!? I kept thinking that today was a 'special' day. As a lover of numbers, pi is special to me. Even its symbol speaks to me … without words.

    Great blog and I'm glad you are sharing. I find I can't hear that internal voice unless I put it out to the Universe to reflect back. I have the answers. It's like... jigging for a fish but on paper.

    Good for you for going back and finding those previous blogs. I'm not even sure how to go about that. Like you I have been on spark people for... decades? Could that be true? When did SP start? I used to blog every day. I did so many challenges and did so much learning. I'm back after a Haitis because I need it. But... maybe somehow I want to find some of those old posts. Hmmm.

    I love your blogs your words matter to me and it helps me to stay on track and keep things in check. This is very inspiring and sobering at the same time but it's something that if I choose to take in I will and if I do it will only help me. I choose to take in ALL in!!!!

    Thank you and Blessings!

    Grand to see and "hear" words from you again, the feeling of Spring opens many doors for us who have struggled through the long cold and dark months. Enjoy and make the most of this seasonal rebirth!
