"Change one thing -one idea, one habit -and the frontiers open." That is truly a profound statement in my life at this time. I have to make serious lifestyle changes if I want to continue living on this planet. When you put the fear of losing it all in perspective it allows you to be able to embark on a whole new journey.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever for a minute think that I could be doing what I am doing with my health. To be able to stay away from all of my comfort food and drink; I am truly amazed at myself. I am choosing life over the food that makes me sick. I would have never thought that I could be this brave.
You are probably wondering how food and drink can be so controlling...well it is for me. It is my drug of choice to protect myself and numb the pain and feelings that arise for me. It is my way to of not being controlled by others; I have a say on what I do...no one else, even if it kills me. That was the old me, now that I have perspective and I want to live; it's a whole new playing field for me. It's not easy but it is a road I must embark on.
Think about your own life...what is it that you can change about you? What one idea that is coming from you, can you take action on? What one habit are you willingly to change? For me it is as simple as I want to be a grandmother to my potential grandchilrden. I want to be there for my son and his family; that means I am no longer selfish with my life. I am choosing to share my full self by taking care of me for the very first time in my life.
It's amazing when you start to find the courage that you never thought you had. When something starts to be taken from you; all of a sudden you change into your true self to keep what you are not willing to lose.
Dig deep into your true self. Don't let anyone take away anything from you; this includes YOU!!! We are our worst theif stealing our lives from our own self.
Until we meet again...
With all my love...Rita
