Is it just me ? 09/02

Thursday, September 02, 2010

On Tuesday I got the 'weeps'. This is quite unusual for me and I was determined to find the source. There is always a lot going on in life. Much of it is minor and some is just plain out of our control.

I'd gotten some minor information ( one of my sons won't make it for Thanksgiving).... It has been awfully humid and sticky here, I still haven't gotten the scale to move, It's the end of summer, my birthday is coming up..... etc. None of which is enough to boo hoo about .

I decided to get out of the house and went to my favorite little market, then to the post office and on my way to the library I found myself crying like a baby... with real tears running down my face. I tried to talk myself out of my blue mood. Life is good ! I have a wonderful, healthy family ( all who want to be, are employed.) and so much more, blessings abound !

This is what I finally settled on after some yoga and meditation. I have started on a journey to change my life. I want to lose weight. I have changed my eating habits and am concentrating on my own needs. My body will go through a number of adjustments. I am fairly certain that a large part of my weight is from emotional issues. Now and then, a sore spot will come up and it MUST be dealt with. Be it age, family, or just getting through the day. My Spark friends support me in this journey, we all have stories to examine, loss, divorce, rejection, fear... it all has to come out somewhere along the line. When it is exposed to the light, it will heal.

I am here to listen to the stories. Thank you for listening to a part of mine.......

    This really sounds like a breakthrough to me! Things are going fairly well in your life, but you and I both have a long history of "eating" our emotions. It was far easier to overeat than to face my demons. There's a chance you may find more of these little cloudbursts as you move on, especially since you're engaged in the new, healthy habits of yoga and meditation. Sometimes, those practices create a conduit for a lot of suppressed pain and anger, or so I've found (although I have never done yoga, just meditation). Wasn't I surprised when a rush of tears or anger would well up inside me after I'd peacefully - even blissfully - meditated! Like lancing a boil, these body- and spirit-enhancing activities gradually heal much of our anguish, making way for healthy new behavior. You definitely sound like you're on the right path! - Sandi emoticon
