I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level.

I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step built on another, baby steps are progress, and no time limit- only progress. I've decided mistakes are made only to educate me and are only a sidestep, not a change in direction. The more I learn about health the easier it is to make choices.

I absolutely agree with everything you wrote about forgiveness! My father & I have talked very much & often about things of the past. I have forgiven him. He has forgiven me. My sisters aren't able to see him in the light that I have been able to. Forgiveness has saved me from ME!

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I have never met anyone kinder, more generous with their time, or more interested in their family than the Czech relatives.
