Day 19/20 – Affirmations

I’m trying affirmations to myself all throughout the day. Like when I’m walking from one place to another, when I’m standing in line, on hold equals saying something good about me. I also am trying to visualize what I want weight wise. A friend told me holding onto weight is protection and I know I’m protecting myself from the pain I felt before and so I need to really let myself feel. I need to not hide and I hope these affirmations help me on my journey. I’m such a work in progress. What are little things you do daily for your self care?

Thanksgiving 2019 thru 2020

To get used to blogging, really blogging each day (I hope) will bring a new post. Whether a photo, a recipe, a post of joy or maybe pain but each day something new.

Today’s Thanksgiving and though I’m not all about people being invaded and slaughtered in the name of freedom and instead I think of gratitude, family, friends, and food. So in the name of gratitude I’m grateful for so much and here’s a few things I’m grateful for:

  • Daily gratitude with a group of 5 women via email.
  • Two beautiful perfectly imperfect kids. Love them to the moon and back.
  • My family. Despite the growing pains. Love them.
  • A partner who loves me for me and wants to grow with me. Love him.
  • Women who uplift me and I them.

This is just a fraction of the gratitude I feel. What are you grateful for??

Speaking of kids…my girl and I made this pie below. She’s 19 and has been helping so much this year. I hope our family enjoys the meal we’ve prepared and 100% gluten free!

Enjoy the ones you love and be kind to each other.
