My nerves are made up of spaghetti right now. My life doesn’t always go according to plan and there is a myriad of other things invading my thinking space. Today I’m concentrating on literally putting one foot in front of the other. I ate sugar a week ago and until yesterday my body was screaming at me for every step I took. For that matter even sitting was hard. I’m pretty mad at sugar for being so mean to the arthritis in my body. Doesn’t it know how much I love it. So here I go on the better food choices from now on. Last week was my big hoorah for meeting my weight goal, knowing I would pay for it. Learning to let go of food as a comfort is hard. I have to forgive myself for the moments I do eat for the comfort I seek, but now I have to realize how hard it is for my body. Today was our “coffee shop den bowling den grandma” day and I had one very serious bowler on my hands. He’s still learning how to actually hold and throw the ball down the lane. He is great about putting his fingers in the holes and he will keep them there as I move through the motion. He however wants strikes each and every time. I explain to him the process of bowling and how he will learn to guide the ball. We watch training videos at home, as well. He stays focused on the ball and pins. As we were leaving he said, “bye-bye bowling pins sees you later”. All I thought was I’m glad I had the armband on us so he didn’t run down the lane again to tell them bye close up. Today is one moment in time. Through the rain, the sun will still shine. Be kind to your soul, embrace who you are, and be proud of your accomplishments.
