Adding supports and focus
Tuesday, January 09, 2018
I just uploaded a collage of me in San Francisco two years ago, celebrating a full year of hard work to recover from my second stroke! I was very fragile, and I was so very grateful for being alive, doing as well as I did at that time.
That's the way it goes. I have trauma and fight like the passionate tiger to regain as much of my functioning and appreciation and blessings in a constant prayer of affirming what is in my power to achieve. Soft acceptance of what imperfections still display, and another moment to choose once again.
I've been on Sparks for a decade and was on eDiets for several years prior. I've had great support and tools to regain myself more than once through challenges only made for the hardy. Yet now I find I must admit I regained all those pounds that took me such fortitude and patience to peel away. I am diving in from the get go once again.
I have just added attending OA to my NicA 12 step meetings schedule so I can be in a live room with others who are doing the next right things for themselves by thinking out loud how to shift beliefs. And I signed up for WW for a month as well, because one way or another that in person live goal commitment just might be necessary for me as well.
I walk about 4 miles most days. But I will add resistance bands. Or pushups. The point is to add constructive choices to my Sparking Commitment to take care of me.
My affirmation mantra is:
WHAT DO I CHOOSE WHEN I KNOW I CAN NOT FAIL?
I love you all,
the Passionate Tiger
