Good morning Journal & Friends,
This last week was one of highs and lows, ups and downs. I want to write about it... but don't have the liberty to give details. It's hard to make sense without specifics, ya know? But I also don't want anyone reading my blog to think "Oh, it's just so easy", and get the wrong impression.
There ARE hard times. There ARE struggles. The big thing is: how do we handle them? How do I handle them??
Last night I fell flat on my face, and ended up shoveling in LOTS of unplanned food. I have a dear friend who is doing the Carb Conquest Cruise with me, and I didn't WANT to email her with my days worth of calories and carbs. Not because I was embarrassed by the humongous numbers (which I was and they were)... but because I still wanted to eat more!!!!!
In the end, I did email her. And I did NOT continue eating. What good would it have done?? It wouldn't have helped the situation one bit. Only made me feel worse. And she understood, and said the most helpful and uplifting thing back to me, ever:
From Dr Phil's book: "Challenge your faulty thinking..."
My verse for today: "Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle."
My quote for today: "To see things in the seed, that is genius." --Lao Tzu
Enjoy the Journey,
