A bigger life in a smaller body

Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth. ~Katherine Mansfield

I am doing the hardest thing on earth for me - taking a break from all the expectations I place on myself and that others place on me. I am taking the time I need to heal. I am focusing on learning how to let go and forgive.

I am not losing weight so that I can love myself. I am learning to love myself. Right now. Exactly as I am. I expect that when I release my pain, I will release the unhealthy habits that brought me to this place and will lose the weight as a natural consequence.

Each healthy decision is an act of kindness towards myself.

For my Sunny Gals:

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable. �Joseph Addison

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead. �Louisa May Alcott

True friendship brings sunshine to the shade, and shade to the sunshine.

I stopped smoking 4 years ago last October ( 2015 )...Been a BIG struggle getting myself back together and to stop *stuffing* my face BUT like when people say that you will quit smoking when *you* are ready?
You will get back on track when YOU are ready....

I think you are there Deanna and I am here for you if you need any support....
