Priceless Treasure-Friendship

You Being A Great Friend

“Friendship with oneself is all-important because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt

R U your Bestest Ever Friend?  If not would you like to be?  Start by thinking one good thought about you every 4 hours.  Pour on the oil of Believe.





Thoughts That Keep Us On Track

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”
– Mother Teresa

“I will speak ill of no man, and speak all the good I know of everybody.”
– Benjamin Franklin

On our journey of ‘thought’ directing we may need little ‘Burma Shave’* signs.  For me these are two great examples of actions that keep us on the upper road.

*Burma Shave at one time had little signs along the hi-way. “Typically, six consecutive small signs would be posted along the edge of highways, spaced for sequential reading by passing motorists. The last sign was almost always the name of the product. The signs were usually red and white.” [Taken from their web sight.]  The last set of signs read:  Super Hi-Way  Super Speed  People have No Time To Read   Good-bye  Burma Shave

It Was Good

Today I continue my thought journey that brings joy, peace, comfort and contentment into my physical being as well as my soul.  To paraphase a wise man-What I do today I will do heartily unto spirit -God so that my soul is fed.

Of course my Frankincense, Valor, and Believe keep my inner vision and purpose strengthened.



It Is Time

Today I will think 1 good thought about me, 1 good thought about the person I interact most with, 1 good thought about an in-law, one good thought about an ex-, one good thought about each child and/or sibling; whole- 1/2 or step, one good thought about each parent;bio/adopted/absent/or step.

[I will stop the list here and let you create your own.]  and as I prepare for my evening rest I will thank the power that created me for____________.  I know you will have an unique day.

Oils to encourage Valor, Believe and Stress Away.  Oils to increase your joy Frankincense, Joy, and Sacred Mountain.



Today I Commit

My daily RX column has helped get me to this point of truly thinking enough of my physical self to take care of me.  The columns of March15th-19th have given me the committed desire to start this journey that will last to my last breath.

It is my belief that every fat person knows how they got there and what they need to do to get where they want to be physically.

I am 65# overweight.  I feel it in my knees, I feel it when I am doing housework, I feel it when I am chasing an 18 month old, I feel it when I bend to pick up something from a sitting position, and I feel it when I put on my socks.  The ‘it’ is fat/blubber that makes everyday activities harder.

Carrying 65 extra pounds unfortunately does not count as weight training!

My first step this week is no eating after 6 p.m.  I will post daily on my progress.

DAY 1  SUCCESS  I will post details on day 7 when I announce my 2nd step.

DAY 2  MORE SUCCESS  I am enjoying how success feels.  Day 3 has started and I have a strong start so will let you know how the finish goes.

DAY 3-Strong finish.  I soooo wanted something for a bedtime snack but I didn’t.  Do a little dance for victory this day.

DAY 4-I finished strong but..wasn’t watching the time and it was 6:15 when I wanted my snack.  I’ll start setting my alarm so I don’t feel sooo deprived!  Little joke for all you emotional eaters out there.

Day 5  I barely got my treat in before the magic hour.  This must be what it is like for people who are super control freaks.  I think that I need to be this anal right now as I know if I start fudging just a little pretty soon it is going to be a lot.  For instance the food has to be in the mouth by 6 and beverages (not herbal tea or water) count as food.  Fortunately I am a water drinker so this rule won’t present a lot of challenge for me.   I’ll let you know how I finish.  It is a busy evening so it should be good.  The finish was strong.  I was so tempted to snack but I am glad I can say I was successful.

Day 6 I am out of town on a girls-night out.  I don’t see any reason to try and not do adult beverages after 6 since we are going to a live show of country western entertainers.  I am going to give myself a free night on this one.  I’ll let you know how it went.  (If we go out after 6 for a meal I’ll make it a salad)–I am up an hour early so I can fix a balanced breakfast and not be tempted to eat all of the ‘snacks’ all the time.  This sure does take a lot of planning.–I had my 3 sensible meals, walked 2 hours at the mall, swam 45 minutes, partied moderately and had a sensible 10p.m. breakfast.  A great ”gals’ night out” without being too over the top.

DAY 7  This is the first morning I woke up without being so very hungry.  Could it be because it has only been 9 hours since I last ate!! It’ll be an on track day.  And it was.  I am so glad that I started this journey.



Riches of Life

“It takes a long time to grow an old friend.”  by John Leonard (thanks to Steve’s Famous Quotes)

Once an ‘old friend’ is grown time, distance, and little communication cannot destroy the bond.

Abundance is the oil that reminds me the value of a friend.





Enduring Ensures Success

Any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day living that wears you out.   Anton Chekhov

Valor is my choice for helping me keep on keeping on.



Movement Motion Accomplishment

~ To be able to move on, one has to learn to forgive not only the person (or people) who have done one wrong but also oneself ~Eugenia Tripputi

The wonderful oils of Forgiveness, Hope, and Valor help me fill up with love.



Happiness

The Grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.  Allan K Chalmers

Time for an inventory check?
