Today, Thursday, December 21, 2017,
I am grateful for now being emotionally strong
enough to face and accept my reality about
my disabilities and my morbid obesity.
I have been in denial by not accepting the truth
about what I can and cannot do. For example,
I have justified my junk and sweet overeating
by telling myself that since I am missing out on
so many other needs I have that are unfulfilled,
it is ok for me to indulge in ice cream and
Hershey brownies from PizzaHut.
I am so sedentary that even taking out my
trash is a big problem; my legs hurt from it and
I am easily out of breath. By facing those realities in
my life to the best of my ability, I will be in a better position
to manage them more successfully than I have been in the past.
I will only be able to manage them better once I get those
emotional obstacles out of my way. This is true and natural
because that is one of the jobs our emotions can do for us.
They let us know what is wrong so
we can face it, put it to rest
and move forward.
What are you grateful for today?
I want to hear ALL about it!!
