Five years already!

It has been five years that I stopped smoking, and decided to work on my excess weight.

I have been very successful with the no smoking part, but not so much with the losing weight... I keep losing, then gaining back. And the cycle starts again.

It is time now to re-evaluate what I am doing wrong. I think I stay on a diet that is too restrictive, and when I allow myself a little "break", this turns into several months of over eating.

Raising a handicapped son all by my myself is stressful, but I tend to use this as an excuse to over eat.

So, let's pick up the momentum and see what we can do to get back on track, shall we?

I recently joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and it has brought wonderful changes in my life.
I love to read (theology and history books) and I listen to classical music (J.S. Bach is my favorite composer).

Walk in wisdom this day. Pure wisdom leaves us with no question about whether it is a good thing to do.
Walk in wisdom this day, for wise decision, thoughts and actions bring peace to us.
Walk in wisdom, which practices gentleness even with oneself. Be good to you today.
Walk in wisdom, practicing sound reason in all things you face today.
Walk in wisdom that is full of mercy. Wisdom understands who we are, where we are, and the challenge faced in getting where we are going. It does not give a beat down, but lifts up off the ground.
Walk in wisdom. It produces good fruit, making a life of abundance.
Walk in wisdom. It is unwavering, removing doubt and fear.
Walk in wisdom that keeps us from a life of hypocrisy by stabilizing our course, making our path straight.

Now is the time to reflect and to
Evolve.
Wait no more, live this life - now.

Yes, breathe.
Enjoy the moments as they come, as they are.
Always remember to drink them in.
Relish, be present.
Savor.

Relax and recognize that
Each instant is a gift.
Seek the silver lining.
Obey your inner voice of kindness.
Love.
Understand and appreciate. Celebrate.
The simple things
In life are often the most precious. Give thanks.
Own it, feel it, live it, love it, know it.
Now, start now.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year, my friend!
I've missed you! Let's make this our year to shine. emoticon

“Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life’” ~ John 8:12, NASB.

John 8:12 is the passage God has given me as a life-goal for 2015. As I seek Him for a New Year’s BLESSing for you, it seems good to pray that you will have all the Light needed for the path ahead, dispelling all darkness, and giving you the light of day for each step ahead. Happy 2015!
