Today I Choose To Be Happy

3comments Permalink 0

OK, I had a temporary moment of insanity last night. It happens. But I just need to write a post script to last night’s rant because I really should have waited to send it out.

I had a long talk with myself this morning about how I was feeling about my body. I do have moments when I feel (fill in the blank here) too short, too fat, bad hair day, too ugly, too…. But everybody has those days! It’s normal, it’s natural, it’s what we call life!

Most days I choose to love myself and I am happy with the person I am. Even though I wouldn’t mind being a bit younger, I love that I was born in the ’50s in a life unconnected by anything wireless, I lived through the freedom days (and the Beatles!) of the ’60s, bought my first house in the ’70s where I had a $300-a-month mortgage, had good career opportunities and got to work in the first crazy days of the dot-com era, and stopped traveling for work before 9/11. If I were in my 40s I would have been born in the ’70s and missed so much.

I’m fine. As I said, 364 days of the year I am so very very grateful for my life, my health, my marriage, and for having this surgery. If I hadn’t had the surgery and this amazing adventure I would be feeling the way I felt last night every day instead of just one night.

indexLife is good and I am happy again…

    You are amazing… For many reasons ! The least of which is your ability to put into words what each of us feel at one time or another! I am 8 weeks post op yesterday. Earlier this week I was feeling bad because I haven’t lost weight in my legs (picture Elepant legs, large with no shape) Today I noticed loose skin on my calfs, instead of being excited about proof I had lost weight I was a little sad at the sight of the loose skin :). We all have our moments, it’s how we bounce back that counts!

      Yes!!! You are absolutely right….and I think I did bounce back pretty well today. I should be ashamed really of feeling so pissy….when my life is so good and I am so healthy. Putting things in perspective is so important!
