Some Soul Searching.

I am back, I had a lovely time at my sisters wedding,
She was so beautiful,
you can view some wedding photos on my other blog on the sidebar.
I have come back home with a renewed sense of energy, it was a much
needed time away where I could reflect on some of  lifes issues.
I have also taken a look why I started this blog,
it was to help me get healthier, not to be worried by numbers,
or how good or bad I was doing in comparison to others.
Am I eating Healthy......yes
Am I exercising........yes
Do I like myself.......yes
And I am brought back to the fact that I am me and am grateful for who I am,
I am at peace in my mind and loving in my heart, and that is the most important thing to me,
To be a good person,  to be patient and understanding.
my weight does not define whom I am, the loss of weight will help me live a more
active life style, that is for sure.
So lifestyle remains a focus, I remain me as I am this size or any other,
I do not apologize for being compassionate and understanding.
I have learned a lesson, only I can choose how I react to 
what I percieve to be negativity or anger,  and for that reason I
will continue to live Each Day As Best As I Can.
I am strong, I am Proud, and I am staying away from any stress  in my life.
Why, Simply Because I have the right to.
Because Life is About Choices and Control.
I am only in control of me and what I choose to write on my blog, and everything pertaining to my life.
..................
Have I had an easy life, no I don't think so, Have I Much to be Grateful for.
Absolutely! So onward and forward believing in me.
Yes I Can Do It, I am not a Quitter.
Until next time I hope you are having
Your Very Best Day.

  10. Hi Cinner,
    I couldn't agree with you more! Weight does not define us...It's someone's jovial spirit that people respond to...and you have a wonderful spirit that even over the internet it makes people happy!

    I hope you had a great time at your sister's wedding...I'm going to see the pictures!
    XO

  12. Awww hon.... I have been in much the same place..working through life stuff. Struggling along some days. My weight is up a bit..I am dealing with all the fun stuff that comes with age..sigh. But like you I am a fighter..and lean towards the more positive side of life..cause I am just that way!
    Hang in there hon..you inspire me every day! Plus I love you!!!

    The bloggy thing..yeah..been here too..I had to rethink it all over this last six months..where did I really want to focus my time...I love blogging..so rededicated myself there and to my Etsy shops..but alot has faded to the sides..other groups and memes..just no time. I needed time with the family..and art..and of course my daycare..so..I do understand hon!
    Hugs and love to you, Sarah

    Ackkk wrote a novel..guess you touched something there hon:)

  14. Weddings have a way of making us look at things differently, don't they? I just had my little brother's wedding. It is hope and goodness.

  15. oh cindy...this post made me want to jump up and down and shout. That things are working out for you is not by accident....that your life is peaceful and calmer.....is b/c you aimed at it and fought for her. I've told you this in the past and I mean it...you inspire....Stay strong out there and have a great weekend. Hugs to you. ☺☺

I am glad you are going to keep moving. it really is the key I think. you should have seen me doing all the stairs at the wedding with my cane. little kids were running past me and I thought oh if I had their energy, but I have mine so I keep trying. just so you know you are a bright spot in my day too. love you.

  25. Joanna, thanks for cheering me on, it means a lot. My younger sister was beautiful. We talk every day on the phone. It makes me so happy that she is. She has been such a good mother to those boys through all the hardships of a divorce....she always said never again, that she would just get a dog...so we were all surprised when she found the one. have a great weekend. think of you often and hope you are well. love to you.

  26. Pauline, I am glad you feel inspired and in a better frame of mind. I don't know but if you are like me when I get tired my frame of mind can just go in the opposite direction...I guess my reason for lots of naps. lol. hope you have a great weekend. I am catching up on blogs today. so will be by to visit. think of you often.
