Didn't know what to title this...

 I'm feeling a little better this morning. What a relief.  It's beneficial for me to know that there can be a shift in thinking/feeling (inner life) without circumstances (outer life) changing.
 I often say to myself that 'I choose peace' what that generally means is:  I can't change this situation, and I need some relief from the burden of it. (can you tell I have a lot of inner dialogue?).
 In my own way, that declaration is a prayer for help.
This morning I just remembered (funny how that happens) I had  this book that I bought a few months ago, at the suggestion of a friend.
 I Don't Have To Make Everything All Better.  Written by Gary & Joy Lundberg. (just a few $$ from Amazon)
 What a gift it's been to read something that speaks some truth to me and is giving me the very thing I need today:  A little relief.
Oh, and I dropped 1/2 of the weight I gained...FT works, BFC works, WW many things will help us get those extra lbs off. We just need to create a life/eating plan that we can live with. Isn't that what we're all doing in our own way?
I have such affection for you, and our little blogging community. Don't give up...we're doing it.


  1. Well - I am glad that you are feeling a bit better and great job on the weight loss. Keep it up :-)

  2. amen, sister! So glad you are feeling better.

  3. I need that book! I'm working on the same issues with myself.

  4. That book sounds perfect, although I can't believe we could ever get out of "making everything all better" mode. That's a hard one for me, I always want to fix everything for everyone. Yeah on the weight loss Jeri! Love it!

  5. Jeri, just catching up on some blogs. I am going to get that book. In fact that is the very thing one of the bereavment counselors at the church said to me the day of the funeral. I was trying to run around, checking on the flowers, etc. etc., and she said you can't make this all better. And then you wrote about this book. I guess it's true...there are no coincedences! Hugs to you my friend!
