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 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.

Aw thanks for checking out the dress! I'm glad to hear a positive second opinion emoticon Yeah it is a pricey one... but I agree a significant amount of money is being saved by not buying cigarettes so it practically balances out, right?! emoticon
I am so delighted to hear how well you are doing staying off smoking!! Three whole months! that is awesome!! I hope you have a treat lined up for yourself too, a new outfit, a day out, maybe a massage or a spa trip?
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I hope you and Romeo did well in horse agility! He is such a handsome guy!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I like your point about the cauliflower and spaghetti squash. I do that, too, since I know I can eat more of them. I'm trying so hard to change and be satisfied with what is adequate nutrition-wise and filling. It's hard when food is not only a fuel but also a pleasure.

I prefer hiking or walking in anything that resembles nature to on a street LOL! I'll walk on a street or sidewalk sometimes but have always loved nature. That's why I love some of these area around here, although I still miss my forest by my home in New Mexico. Or even the zoos too and watching some of the animals. Dirt trails are best but if they are in the trees and stuff I will even settle for paved trails. There are just so many around here.

Hi, dear friend! I've not been spending much time on Spark lately, other than tracking, so I feel a little out of touch. I just caught up on some of your blogs...so happy you're writing them again!

Wishing you a wonderful day.
