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.

    hi there--thanks for stopping by. you are so right about practice and learning a skill based art form. I think the best thing about it is the fact that it keeps you humble without feeling defeated. have a great day!

    Thank you Eileen. I will definitely include my new pal in my blogs. My golden whom I lost recently was a huge part of my life. He was mentioned just about every day in my blogs. I miss him dearly but I do know he lives in my heart always. ;o)

    Eileen, Your comment should be a blog. It is a wonderful explanation to live life as it should be lived. I also believe whole heartedly about the laws of attraction. I am putting it out there for a golden retriever rescue that I want to do at the end of August. I just lost my boy in April and will be ready by the end of the summer to be a mom again. So the universe does know because I am talking about it all the time! ;o) hugs, fredie
