Well, here goes. Starting this blog by Faith.
I ended up staying home from work today. Sneezing, coughing, achy, head stuffy, weak voice and tired, very tired all not a good combination when you talk on the phones all day. So I stayed home. Slept. Made homemade chicken soup. Danced a bit to the rhythmic music. Swayed to the music more like it. Not enough energy to dance much. I felt crappy. Very crappy. When I can’t dance there is definitely something wrong… (I Love to Dance. Oh how I love to Dance. It makes me happy, very happy)
I texted a friend telling her all my woes. She said “Well quit it”
Wow. Who knew three words could make such a difference in my day. I did just that. I quit it. As simple as that, I just quit. “I’m starting my blog now” and here I am. I’ve never considered myself a writer. Although I have many, many journals from over the years. So, I guess I have always been a writer.
I am Learning to Love Myself. Thus, the blog theme… I am learning what I love to do. I am learning to do the things I love to do. I am learning to be Courageous. I Love being Courageous now. I am addicted to finding some Courageous thing to do every day. Some days more than one! I am getting addicted to many things. Sunrises, Sunsets, Love – Unconditional Love. Yes, I am now feeling unconditional Love for those around me. Me, the judging one. I changed. You can too. You can change anything about yourself if you want to. Really want to. Do not change for someone else. That never works. It can be a temporary change, but nothing really changes unless you determine to change deep within your Soul. I was not happy with me. So I determined to change.
My first change a few years ago was to loose weight. My 3 D’s were: Desire, Determination and Dedication. The Metabolic Research Center in Colorado Springs assisted in my weight loss and was suggested by a friend at work. Since that determination, I have lost 53 lbs. and feel great. I Love eating healthy now.
You can do anything you set your mind to! Anything you Really Desire to do.
My second change was regarding Spirituality. I had a wonderful connection to God or so I thought. I did all that I was “Supposed” to do and do and do. If it was so wonderful, why was I miserable? Don’t get me wrong, The moments of Walking with and Talking to My Jesus were absolutely Wonderful! I have a much broader picture of who God is now. And more importantly who He isn’t. More about that later…
Wow, I had no idea that was going to be in the first blog….. Will anybody read any more? Ha. We’ll see. It doesn’t matter. I don’t care if people like me anymore. Like what I say anymore. Like how I look. Boy is that freeing…. I was such a “People Pleaser” what a prison I put myself in. Yes, Myself. It was NOONE elses fault. It was My choice. I made choices, some good, some not so good. All taught me something. All made me who I am today and I am very grateful for my life and all the people along the way who helped make me the person I am today. I can Truly say “I Love You, Tammy” and really mean it.
I Love you, Tammy! I Really Love you, Tammy!
Learn to Love yourself… That is my plea to you. Love Yourself, Dear One.
PS I have another addiction….. Assisting others in their Healing process.
Join me on this ride. Everyone has a story. I want to hear everyone’s story. I want my story to inspire others to Determine to LOVE Unconditionally.
Starting with You. Love Yourself! Determine Now to Love Yourself!
