I still fill myself spiritually. It really helps me to put my daily life in perspective. \I have read all sorts of things and I've heard most of these things. None of the things I'm doing is nothing I haven't heard of before. The difference................befo
re I've always rationalized the situation was the cause of my downfall. I know my life isn't going to change. The places we go. We are involved with organizations and part of the socialization is dinners that are planned for various activities. Those things are not going to change. I have to change. I've been making decisions about the amount of food I consume. It may taste good but one serving IS ENOUGH. A serving is really enough. I'm finding I feel better not only about myself but physically..............not being bloated or filled with self-loathing because once again I failed to eat responsibly. Food is not my enemy. I am entitled to a good nutritional meal and occasionally a treat of whatever I choose.

The opportunities that are before me are endless and they are mine to explore. I now have the time to learn anything I want............and the opportunity to help those whom God chooses.

Positives and gratitudes....................
.....I continue to be filled spiritually.............the realization that I am the one who has to change...........that I continue to receive the strength from my friends..................the life I've been given..............and evening with our grandchildren............Mass I always love the community.................Bob.
.................God my constant companion.

    Marie...you are definitely gaining some wonderful insight into your reality. Good for you for recognizing what you can't change and what you can. I'm planning on tagging along with you on your journey too.

    Have a wonderfully blessed day...thank you for always reminding me to fill myself up "spiritually" each day.

    Hugs,
