The Aim of Life is to Live,
and to Live Means to be Aware, Joyously, Drunkenly, Serenely, Divinely Aware.
It is a beautiful Sunday Afternoon. I have had a wonderful weekend. (Well, Friday was not so great, but I did get my license renewed so, Yea me! Oh, and last night really sucked...had to call the police on my neighbours AGAIN....my walls were vibrating their music was SO loud. After the police left, the neighbours got REALLY childish and spent the next two hours stomping just as loudly as they could all across the apartment, I swear I thought that the ceiling was going to cave in and they were going to end up in my apartment. They really need to GROW UP!).
ANWAY! Yesterday I spent a delightful interlude with two dear friends for lunch and a movie. (It was an early birthday gift from them. *grins*) We saw "Music and Lyrics", it was too cute. I enjoyed it immensely! I now have to purchase the soundtrack as I have a couple of the songs dancing in my head all the time! *LOL* I love my friends and am so grateful to have had that precious time with them.
*Drumroll please!* I made my weight loss goal for my birthday day two days early and actually exceed the loss by 1.5 pounds! Again... YEA me! My next goal will have me at 30 pounds gone and I can't wait. *does the happy dance* I have never in my life been so jazzed about a lifestyle change...and it is a lifestyle change. Now when I go to the store I bypass the sodas(Been almost two months without a soda! hehehe)...I reach for fruits and veggies and I use smart balance instead of butter. I'm eating whole grain bread , whole wheat pasta and I eat a lot of chicken...I'm dancing everyday...will one day soon perhaps join a gym. Of course I can't see any changes, but I feel so much better and my clothes are beginning to fit a wee bit more loosely.
I have not felt this good in such a long time, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. I am disgustingly cheerful...I am slowly weeding out the negativity in my thoughts and in my life and that has included gently letting go of the negative people in my life. I am determined to surround myself with positive, upbeat people . Even more than I used to, I am finding joy in the everyday and it is such a miraculous blessing. I have started attending the church of Religious Science and just going makes me so happy and bubbly! They teach what I have always known(but never really had success with), which is I can do, have and be anything I put my MIND to Doing, Having and Being! It is such a joy*full experience and I look forward to going again next weekend.
For now, I think I am going to go work on my vision board. I bought a large cork board to today. I have posterboard, paints, stencils and pictures. I will make a board that will have all my wishes on it...the things I want to manifest in my life. *GRINS* It's "The Secret!" I know I can do it. NOW....TODAY! Baby steps.....baby steps...towards a brighter lovely, love*filled life. A life which is good and happy and loving now!
