i very much enjoyed the book, 'eat pray love' by elizabeth gilbert.
i have noted that in previous blogs.
her journey really helped spur my own for quite some time.
after the accident, everything in my world changed -
my outlook on life.
my outlook on me.
my reaction to the world around me.
then charlie came.
and my world collapsed in on itself and became very much about her.
for the last nine months or so, i have neglected myself
and thus, failed in my journey.
as we approach a new year, i approach it with a yearning for a healthier life.
a healthier body.
a healthier spirit.
a healthier mind.
these are all things i want to be able to share with my daughter.
to model for her.
the best way to do that is start now.
before the m&ms take over.
so i have decided to start yet another blog.
this is not for that.
this is for my blah.
and my hope is that this journey will be anything but blah.
so if you're feeling nosey.
"There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts." - elizabeth gilbert.
