This Day

Sunday, October 10, 2010

Have you ever had a day when the world seems just right ? Today is one of those days for me. I found peace and love at church. Two dogs are sleeping at my feet. The sun is shining and the fall colors are glorious here in Illinois. My adult children seem to be doing quite well and my grandchildren are growing fast.

And yet, I have to pinch myself every now and then to trust it. It is like I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. I am in my mid 60's, by now I should realize that it all turns out for the best, EVERY time. Don't get me wrong, I have had my struggles. Some of them seemed unbearable at the time and I thought a few would break me. Well, here I am !

Today I feel like I can stay on the right track for the rest of my life. I will eat healthy, I will enjoy the fact that I am able to exercise. I will fight the negative with positive thoughts and affirmations. All this because I am at peace.

Maybe the lesson here is that I am not 'parts' ... all of me is connected. My health, my spirituality, my sorrows, my gains and my losses. I intend to watch much more closely how I react to the world around me, both near and far, especially when I am tempted to eat my way out of pain. I will clean my closet, so to speak, empty the cupboards of all offending food, empty my life of toxic 'friends', choose carefully what I watch on T.V. and stop purchasing magazines ( which is almost all of them ), that advertise objects and ideas that offend my common sense and morals.

I will - again- redirect myself to good health for all the 'parts'.

    It's like a wonderful cycle for you, Annette: The peace you've cultivated - and through much adversity as well as joy - is pervasive in your life, yet you keep moving forward. That's such a very satisfying way to live!! - Sandi emoticon
