06/18/2019 - I'm not happy with myself. I know I should be, but I'm not. I don't have motivation to do anything about it right now. I've lost 6 family members in the past 3 years. My mom, my sister, a brother-in-law, 2 cousins and my ex-husband. I cannot seem to get out of the rut I'm in. I am told to quit living in the past but they were my past. They were to be my future as well.

Since my mom's death July 1, 2016 I have put almost 30 lbs back on of the 45 I lost. I can feel it in my bones, the way I walk, the way I breathe and mostly I can feel it in my heart. It breaks for what used to be.

My goal someday is just to get up out of bed without feeling so sad. I've never dealt with depression, but I know that's what I'm going through. At first I thought it was grief, but I think it has gone beyond that.

Today I'm trying to make changes. One day at a time to re-write me. To begin to be happy again. Something I've lost for the past 3 years.

My Goals:
1. Start new. Don't worry about what used to be, or how many times I've tried before, but concentrate on the here and now.

    Do not take today for granted. And tomorrow is truly uncertain. Try to live everyday as though it was the last – if not for yourself, then for someone you love. Sanjay Patel

    When you wake each day, rather than asking the question, “What do I need to do today?” you should ask “What do I want to BE today?” Do you want to be happy? Relaxed? Compassionate? Strong? Courageous? Well then, your daily life is offering you countless chances to practice at BE-ing that person. Laura Rosenfeld
