I was recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis after having almost three rough years of not feeling myself due to IB issues. I discovered it is time for Me to take care of Me instead of always taking care of everyone else.

I have started a new food plan suggested by my Gastro Doc: The Low-FODMAP plan which should help the issues of my digestive disorders, and help me begin a new life of feeling like myself again.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5&6

"Do you live in tomorrow when you must face today? At times, I forget to live in the moment, but what do I miss? The setting sun, the sound of birds' singing and, most importantly, I miss meeting myself. I am constantly changing, and if I don't spend time with myself in the here and now, I will never get to appreciate who I truly am because I am too busy focusing on who I want to be."

    Well, hello there! emoticon

    It's been awhile since I've sent out motivation for my spark friends. Here you go....

    " The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek" (Joseph Campbell)

    So remember the next time you're unsure, afraid or stop believing in yourself think of that quote and know that you have to over come it to get to where you want to be. You can make this happen, just believe in yourself!

    Hope you all have a great week.

    Thank you for befriending me. It is an honor. It is great that you live downtown... we have a number of members there: SIRIRADHA, LOVMELOVMYCATS, spring immediately to mind. We also choose downtown as a central meeting place and walk around Palmer Lake a lot. Keep an eye on the team forums for announcements and join in if you dare! HAH!
