Raspberry's Story

The raspberry is my favorite fruit, hence my username :)

This is not my first time working on bettering the ol' body, but this is the most serious.......you see, as someone looking for work, when one cannot fit well into ..... sigh ....... interview-friendly attire, well......this was my OMG moment! (Why, oh WHY are SUITS so important - gad, I HATE them!)

I have a lot on my plate right now, so I may not have a significant social presence here for now......so, I'll ...

My Goals:
A better body and overall health - and a neater appearance in suits would be a good thing, too (as much as I HATE suits) :)

My Program:
I restarted my journey using parts of Spark in conjunction with a recently completed workplace health challenge program - this seems to have done the trick so far, sooooooo - I'm crossing the ol' fingers for the future!

Other Information:
Just trying to keep in mind that old saying - "one day at a time"!

This is the wonder: that of all the days of the year, the most important one is the everyday.

The everydays that are the most days of the year. These, the most days of our lives.

I think about these everydays that have me taking sun-dried sheets in off the line

or shoveling snow, these are the important days.

Everydays when I trip over excited little dogs

and the laundry mounts into its very own range and I finally think of something to make for dinner

when the head's weary tired and a wonderful aroma fills the air. All this.

This is the sacred everyday.
I can miss it. How holy the moments are.
How do we find ways to somehow live awake to the astonishing, ordinary wonder of all this?
How do we find ways to somehow live so that everyday is consecrated?

We must find ways.
For the ways we live our everydays is the way we live our lives.

Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.
Let the whole world know what He has done.
Psalm 105:1

This is my Sunday sermon. Have a great week!

Thanks for the hug. I'm blogging to talk to myself and to get a bit of empathy!

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually,you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
