DAY 108 Mirror Mirror

Hi Journal,

Yesterday as I was standing briefly in front of the bathroom mirror, running a comb thru my hair, I was startled as I focused on my face. I did a double take.. I actually really truly recognized the beginings of a change to the shape of my wasn't just a round ball. 

I cried.

It was real. I could actually SEE the beginnings of change, finally. This was so encouraging. It has nothing to do with vanity (at least not THIS time, lol). In fact, as I lose the "padding" under the skin of my face, I am looking more my age, due to the wrinkles becoming more pronounced.

No, it had to do with reality. Being able to SEE the change transports it from the hazy realm of hopes and wishes and trying and dreaming and praying to REALITY. NOW. RIGHT NOW.

Can ya tell I am excited about that?? hee hee hee hee hee.

Grinning from ear to ear here. Another thing to put on My Lists. :-)

From Dr Phil's book: "Continue to press on with an optimistic spirit."

My verse for today: "Give thanks in all circumstances."

My quote for today: "Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live
long enough to make them all yourself." --Eleanor Roosevelt

Enjoy the Journey,
