Default *** An Attitude of Gratitude for MAY ***

"No matter how good or not so good our lives our going ... we always have things for which we are grateful. It puts life into perspective. It feels good to remember our gratitudes."

Today I am grateful for ...
+ my warm and cozy house on a chilly and damp morning
+ the wildflowers in my woods - so lovely this time of year
+ avocados - my new food craze
+ a calm and controlled week ahead - no evening meetings!

I've always struggled, as we all do, with the feelings and anxieties that are associated with being overweight/obese. Shopping was a joke growing up, I know I made it miserable for my mom. I never felt like I looked good in anything and when there was something I did like, it never fit or they didnt have my size. shopping pretty much always ended in tears for my. Needless to say, I'm not much of a shopper still.
