Many of us have a three-day weekend ahead of us. I love the weekends because my husband and daughter are home. When I have an extra day with them I get so excited. It is Memorial Day weekend and a lot to think about. For those of you who only have a vague idea of where I live, it is a huge military area. All branches. I have many friends who are military families. Wonderful friends whose lives are affected daily by military life. Husbands who get deployed for 6 months to 1 year. Called out randomly because of situations that need to be handled. Never knowing when they will be moved or where they may be moved too. When you live in this area it is often assumed that you are military. We are not. My husband has a job that keeps him here. How often do I think about that? I am so grateful, I seriously don’t know what I’d do if he wasn’t here. But let’s face it, we do forget how fortunate we are at times don’t we? We get caught up in our crazy busy life. I do wish I would stop more often and think. I’ve bitch about how much I weigh, the annoyance of it all. In the big picture its so silly.
Memorial Day weekend in the States often times means cookouts. Have fun guys! Enjoy yourselves and be positive. No punishments, that just sabotages our long-term goals! I am saying to you what I am saying to myself. I want to live and I want to remember to be grateful and I want to stop harping on the trivial.
You all have given me so much support with this blog. Support during my weight loss journey and now supporting the journey of sharing my journey. It’s been more than I expected. I want so much to stay positive and focused and that is my plan going forward. I am a very lucky person and I know it. I know I will have days but I am going to try. Thanks so much and have a great weekend!!
