Sunday Morning...

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Good Morning!

My glucose came in @133

Not much happening today...a few hours of work and then last day to really rest up before hitting it again tomorrow.

Cindy is making some kind of treat for my youngest sister Alisson's birthday today...31, amazing young woman.

It's felt good to take a little break not only from working out so hard physically but from digging inside and working all of that out too...going into this weekend I was looking for balance, grace, kindness....trusting that I'm going to be ok, I'm doing my very best and that my life was given to me as a gift to enjoy.

Egg beaters & flourless banana pancakes for brunch today and probably some type of chick-flick, Cindy's choice...

Sometimes when I get confused about stuff that is new and my feelings get mixed up, I try to imagine what I would do if I did have the answers...almost like giving myself the ok to literally think outside the box, the framework I've created inside for so long is so very limited...to feel ok about resting is pretty new, not judging, not smothering myself with guilt and shame but taking the risk to walk into the grey, to let go of the all or nothing, black & white thinking and to just hang out in the middle with some calm, gentle clarity.

Have a really nice Sunday! Ryan

    This was great. There was something in this post that seemed very peaceful.

    It looks to me like you are making a great assessment about all this and doing well to get it under control.

    Kudos!

    It's nice to take a step back and evaluate and refocus on what's really important to you. I think this is something that everyone would benefit from....peace and joy today...and thank you for your support on the 5k run today. My first ever and it was AWESOME! Can't wait to do another!

    I love how you express your insights about learning to be nice to yourself and hold yourself with compassion. I have a tendency to be very stern and punishing and disappointed with myself. I am going to take a deep breath and reread your blog, I think there is a lot for me to learn from you today. Have a wonderful Sunday. Kathleen

    Looks like even when you're resting, your mind is still working it out. Kind of like the old saying to "sleep on it". Have a good Sunday of rest and then be ready to hit it tomorrow. Best wishes. (I don't like saying "good luck" because in this journey to health, luck doesn't have much to do with it, it's mostly work!!)
