Just for today....

August 27, 2012

Looking back at my photo from my sisterís wedding on June 9th really made me think. I have been in denial for so long about how I looked. I had absolutely no idea I was as big as I was. I always try to remain positive and perhaps this is the reason I donít have very many photographs taken of me. Now here is the deal!

Looking back at my photo from my sisterís wedding on June 9th really made me think. I have been in denial for so long about how I looked. I had absolutely no idea I was as big as I was. I always try to remain positive and perhaps this is the reason I donít have very many photographs taken of me. Now here is the deal! I can sit and wallow in what I look like now - or - I can do something about it! This journal is just the beginning of what I hope to be an exciting journey of self discovery. If I had a ďtotemĒ flower, it would be a rose and right now I am closed tight protecting my self against the outside forces that threaten me. However, in order to experience all that life has to offer, I need to bloom and show myself and the world my true beauty within - only then will the outside match the inside.

I plan to take a proactive approach to my recovery. Sparkpeople! Al-Anon, and self-help gurus like Jack Canfieldís Success Principals, Cheryl Richardson and Deepak Chopra.

I am working on a reward, inspiration, etc Jar to help in my recovery. I think I will call it THE JAR and it will hold rewards, successes, journaling ideas. Anything that will help me to succeed on a daily basis. Of course I have my first 30 day reward which is a massage.
