To Crave or Not To Crave!

So I have been sitting here thinking about how I crave different food, be it because of the sun, moon or stars, I don't know. Somedays I love my chocolate, other days I crave something salty...But I discovered today, even though I am having those cravings, I am starting to have other cravings....No, no, Don't let your imaginations run away with you! I am craving life! I am craving how it would feel to climb a hill, or run in the park, or swim in a lake, or skydive, or dance for a half an hour, stand without sitting down every few minutes, or even walk around in a mall just to look. Alot of these things have slipped from my fingers a few years ago and unfortunately the less you do, the less you are able to do. I have been working really hard at changing this aspect in my life. These cravings are by far way ahead of the chocolate or salt that I am craving.
So today I threw snowballs, I shovelled some snow, I walked to the end of the block and back and I ate really healthy. I drank my water! I chose to look ahead and not backwards, and better still is I know I am making progress, slowly little by little, to some it may seem so tiny, but for me it was like hiking to a mountaintop. And someday....I plan to get there. Have a great evening or day!


  1. Oh I love your positive attitude and if you take one day at a time you will hike up that mountain I am your new cravings and your day sounded like so much fun with the your husband was surprised to see all the shovelling you did........:-) Hugs

  2. You'll get there! Any activity is a positive step. You see all these people running marathons and half-marathons. So many of them will once have been unable to run around the block. Stay positive and have a lovely weekend xx

  3. Hi Cambridge Lady, Your right any activity is positive. Have a great weekend too. We finally have the sun today.

    Bernie, I really did have fun throwing the snowballs around at them with them. I like my new cravings too. I hope you have nice weather so you can get into your yard. That's my plan for the day. Take care.


    Bravo - you continue to inspire me. :-) I intend to learn and define how to get up from the floor - Once my knee/side heals I am back on the Wll ........!!!!! I crave as you my friend - for much that is lost - I may not get back some of those adjustments but there are other new tasks I can take on - so lets both promise to keep moving and celebrate how we crave life.
    Love to you

  5. Gail, you continue to be an inspiration to me, I was outside for about 3 hours today, the sun was shining and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I tried to put some of my yard ornaments away...I feel muscles I forgot I had! Every day we will just keep going forward. You are my friend and I will always be here for you, to share when we are well, and when we are not, and when we take a tumble, we will get each other back up. You have so much strength, I read it every time I visit you or you leave me a comment. Love to you my friend.

  6. Good for you! Little by little you will get there. You are worth it.
