Life is like a box of chocolates!
I love that movie and that scene. I am really starting to get exactly what Forrest Gump meant. For me it is definitely not chocolates, but rather anything I put in my mouth. I have a new stomach and I am learning that it doesn’t like a lot of things. I have been having stomach issues for 3 days. Today (Friday) I actually felt pretty good most of the day UNTIL I took another drink of my Gatorade Zero I had bought. I instantly regretted it as my stomach started feeling yucky again. I have been drinking that stuff off and on for about 3 days because I knew I was not getting enough fluid in and figured it would be helpful. Kinda a bummer because I also can’t seem to tolerate any of those powders or liquids that you can add to water either. At this point I can drink water and milk. FUN!
A little more about me.
So, tis the season to tell you that I LOVE FALL! It is my favorite time of year. I love the cooler temps, the crispness of the air, being outside and not sweating to death, Halloween and Thanksgiving, and just knowing summer is OVER! I am ready to decorate with some fall stuff around the house. I think this year we are going to do a Thankful Pumpkin. It’s where you write all over the pumpkin of everything you are thankful for. I have much to be thankful for. I know this year regarding the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas will be different for me. No more stuffing myself with great, delicious food. I will be able to partake, but in micro sized portions. I decided that I will have to divert my focus elsewhere and that direction for me will be gratitude. Gratitude that I have my life, that I have been given a 2nd chance to live my life, grateful for my kids, grateful that come Christmas I should be seeing my daughter which I have not seen since June 29th! I am blessed beyond measure. What is your favorite season of the year?
I am grateful for anyone who reads my ramblings. I am not in this for the money. I do this partly for myself. It’s therapeutic. It’s like writing in a journal. I will probably print all this out later. I also do this in the hopes that I can be a small part of someone else’s success on their journey. I have been giving a lot of thought to how I see my blog going once I actually make my hike. I think I have vision, but I am going to keep dwelling on that for now. No long term decisions need to be made yet. Right now I am focused on me and my journey and making sure I do this! Thanks again for all the support I get!
