So...I've been gone for awhile and now I'm back. A little bit older, a lot more bruised and battered, hopefully, somewhat wiser, but sadly, not less smaller than when I left in 2011. But...I am reappearing more grateful, more compassionate, much more centered and far more comfortable in my own skin and with my own silence.
So...that my spark friends, is a huge accomplishment for me and one that has allowed me to face head on the emotional eating patterns that have developed over the years . I am now facing, for the first time, the true underlying causes of my emotional eating, accepting what I can and cannot change in my life to address that cycle and learning about the whole me and yes, learning to even like the whole me (and hopefully, soon, there will be a whole lot less of me to learn to like!!)
So... now I have to learn to develop a relationship with some form of exercise...other than lifting the fork to my face! Every little step, movement and follow through on my part to commit to just keep on moving is a cause for celebration in my book!
So... here's to everyone out there who is making the choice to face their fears, to learn new things, to meet and accept themselves where they are and can move on from there! Most of all...here's to each and every one of us who are fortunate enough to rise up and face a new day ! Each and every day we are bestowed with the blessing to start anew... each minute, each hour and with each breath we are given new hope, new choices and new opportunities no matter how great or how small! May we all embrace that unconditional blessing and make it count!
Be outrageous and stand courageous!
