HCB's Journal, 10 January 2013

I have a daily meditation book titled, "Each Day A New Beginning". I don't often read it...but glanced at it on the nightstand this morning.

The title suddenly hit me! It really is brilliant, isn't it? If we can internalize the idea that each day is fresh and new, imagine how successful we might feel.

No worries about yesterday or tomorrow, no regrets about gains, no negative beliefs about ourselves, no "fat" stereotypes, no memories of being slighted or criticized about our weight, no worries about the "Idiot Box", etc.

What freedom we will have when we just live with the thought "Each Day A New Beginning."

Still grateful for:

- The people I love who love me back!
- The good health of my loved ones
- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today

Yep .. as I've seen it elsewhere: "Yesterday is the Past, Tomorrow is the Future... but today is the PRESENT. Enjoy your gift."

Of course it is a relevant meditation. We get through this one day at a time.

Great thought for the day! I was wallowing in the fact that I could not move back with my family last June as planned for about five years. Yesterday I decided to make a new plan for a new day - we will move to Florida in 2018. New Plan - something to look forward to. :)

I have that same book!!! It's buried somewhere amidst all the books that never quite made it to their new "home" when we moved. Might have to dig it out again - never thought of it in reference to my WOE - thanks for a reminder!

I might have to read that book. It sounds great. Thanks for the inspiration.

You're doing so well, HCB. 20 lbs within goal. You are living the title of your book. Well done.
