Blurt: Loving Life through Challenging Times

Posted Nov 12 2009 10:04pm


In most of my articles I have offered a great deal of information on living a happier and healthier life. Although, I know I discuss my successes and failures and how I deal with those issues concerning my health and my weight loss, today I wanted to take a little time and give you a little more information about my life in general.

Keeping a positive attitude has been easier lately. I have found myself more at peace. The little things aren’t as upsetting and aggravating. Life has been going pretty well for me lately. As many of you know I live on the outskirts of Atlanta. It has been raining and raining and raining. Atlanta has many roads and schools closed. There are downed trees all over the place. I was talking with my mother and when she was out trying to make a trip a mere two minutes away in normal conditions found herself being detoured several times finally to give up after 20 minutes worrying that even if she made it to her destination she may not be able to return home. Fortunately it has not hit my area as hard as others and I am thankful for that. Please take a moment and say a prayer for those who have suffered during this flood.

My so-called job also has not been going well. There has been a problem with the software and I have been trying to get it to work for quite some time. I know they are a good employer because they are on Clark Howard’s list saying they are. It is a communication issue between their software and my computer. Hopefully the tech wizards will be able to figure it out soon and I can actually start work and making some money. I need to desperately, but I know God will find a way.

I have been out of work for over two years because of my health and still struggle with some limited mobility issues so finances have not been good. I have started putting my resume back out there again but I really need a legitimate job working from home and there are not many of them out there, lots of scams but no real employment. Ideally, I would like a position writing because I love it so much. But even though times are hard I will keep a positive attitude and push forward. It is said, “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” Mathew 6:26 He has always provided my needs.

My home is in utter chaos right now. My son is rearranging his room and there is stuff everywhere scattered around. He has plans to do all of the rooms. It is a little aggravating but I know everything will be back in order before long. In fact, I concentrate on the fact once he is finished everything will be much more organized and cleaner.

I noticed the other day as I was looking in the mirror I have lost weight. This is a great feeling. It is the first time since I have been on this journey I could actually see the results in the mirror. I have indentions on both sides of my belly. I believe I am approaching or have already reached the 100 pounds lost mark. I can’t wait to go to Weight Watchers® to find out. Hopefully my son’s schedule will permit taking me soon. He works so hard. I am proud of him.

All my friends and family have been so supportive and encouraging in my life. I could never thank them enough for bringing me joy. I love them all. I just got off the phone with a close friend and as always she has made me feel good about myself and life in general. When I spoke with my mother earlier she made me feel the love as only a mother can. The contacts and followers of my blogs as they leave their comments fill me up with pride and happiness. I appreciate them all and take this opportunity to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am feeling positively positive even though life’s journey has its ups and downs. As the tears from heaven pour down on my beloved city I wish all of you peace and happiness in your lives. God Bless you all.
