Mind, Body & Spirit

I believe we need to have a balance of all three of these to feel complete happiness in our lives.

Body.... I have been walking daily for an hour or more a day. I started walking in January and I walked around the track at the park 5 or 6 times. At that time I still had my dog and she could not really do much more than that without her wanting me to pick her up and carry her. I am now up to walking 17 times around and I can do it in a little over an hour which is not too bad. I have no idea how far I am walking but I do walk pretty fast and I do it almost every day. Today I got on the scale and realized I hit my 20lb weight loss goal. That has been since the middle of January. I still have more to go of course and I feel very impatient about it. But I will get there....I have no doubts about it.

Spirit....I feel like I am back on the path as far as my faith goes. I once again feel connected with the Universe.
I meditate, pray to the Angels and feel at peace when surrounded by Nature.

Mind...I can only think of one word when I think of the mind. EGO. I need to constantly remind myself that I am not what I have, I am not what I do....I am just me. Nothing outside of myself defines me. I am part of everything that is. I AM.
On the bad side I have these moments where I feel like I lose control of who I am. One of those times was a little after 3 am today. I ended up calling Peter before 4 am and he was very understanding. I am so lucky to have him in my life.


  1. Balance is something I have been striving for all my life. I've yet to get there. ;) Sounds like you're doing pretty well under the circumstances. :)

  2. Well done on the 20lbs! :)

    I would love to say things are balanced with me, but I'm still working on it.
