teardrops in my tea

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

No I'm not going to whine about anything (tempted as I may be) but I am sitting here a bit overwhelmed by a multitude of emotions:

gratitude for all that I have and the wonderful people in my life, both in my world and on SP;
sadness for those that have suffered unbelievable losses. I just wandered across a beautiful tribute page to a SP member who very recently passed on and who touched many;
fear because of some bad news I received yesterday;
proud that I did not drink, binge or even eat out of range last night as stressed as I am;
pleased that I was able to post and comment to SP Friends who have been so kind to me;
disappointed that as healthy as I've tried to be I keep getting sick;
grateful that none of the illnesses have been serious;
worried because I saw this crazy Rachel Ray episode yesterday where this woman who lost 200 lbs also lost contact with her family and friends in the process because she became so self absorbed and seemed to have no idea why;
relieved that I got in a great yoga class this am; and
better now that I have spit all this out.

I'm not sure why anyone reads this stuff but the process of getting it out this way seems to help me, a release I guess. OK, so maybe I whined a little,

    Way to go on making good choices, even though you've got so much on your plate. Yoga is wonderful, isn't it? Stay with it, and it will be so much easier to handle anything life sends your way.

    Try not to think of yourself as someone who keeps getting sick. You're more like someone who KEPT getting sick....past tense. You are on the road to recovery. I'm sure of it.

    Keep up the good work,

    Release is good. That was NO WAY a whine.

    Chin up. You'll be doing great once the "sick" is over with. And I'm soooo proud of you for sticking to your healthy eating and drinking. (Reminds me - I'd better go chug some more water - MrsHoneyC will have questions and maybe a wet noodle if I don't.)

    And you got in a YOGA class - how cool is THAT?

    Keep spitting out the "stuff" - I, for one, enjoy reading because in some very real sense, SP is family to me. :) This is exactly why blogging or even just keeping a private journal really helps on these journeys through life - sometimes it's good to just SAY it all - that's often the only time we really face our feelings and _allow_ ourselves to feel them.

    Hopefully the rest of this day will be fantastic for you!
