Cultivating an attitude of gratitude and mindfulness are among my priorities as I thrive at my healthy weight. My fondness for affirmations continues to make actions (exercise) an expression of appreciation.

"A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before we changed."

    Yes, surgery. If you want to know the whole gruesome story you can go back to my journal starting mid April. I wouldn't waste the time...unless you have nothing better to do.

    To make a long story short, I am having a basketball sized ventral hernia repaired. I have been off work for the past five weeks do to cellulitis which ravaged across my whole belly. Required IV antibiotics and 5 days in the hospital. That is why my exercise program and outdoor activities have been temporarily put on the back burner. Although my "physical" life has literally been on hold since mid has been an amazing spiritual journey.

    Thus, my daily gratitudes....

    One more thing...I smoked for a few years when I was very young. Long before the patch existed. I quit by blowing bubbles. Yep, blowing bubbles. I sat out on my stairs everyday, watched the birds, and enjoyed the gorgeous acre I had at the time. Held the wand like a cigarette, and breathed in and out, in and out...worked for me, and the beauty was only the frosting....

    I am so glad to hear you are still smoke FREE!! Good for you!

    Just wait til your taste buds and cilia grow back. You think flowers smell good now? And food tastes good? Just wait...the best is yet to come.

    Rebecca, I am honored to be added to your friends page and I likewise would like to add you to mine. Our paths don't cross very often on the SP pages, but I always enjoy reading your words and stand in awe of your talent and abilities.

    Rebecca, just wanted to commend you on maintaining your goal weight, (what an inspiration you are) stopping smoking (I know how hard that is), and for the gratitude board. I don't go often, but it is a great inspiration when I do. Also in the vegetarian way, I am getting there slowly but surely.

    Thank you so much for inspiring me in so many ways.
