Progress and Pitfalls

I am happy to report that though I enjoyed a great many festive gatherings, my weight wasn’t overly affected.  I made many pieces of pumpkin pies, and even pumpkin cookies… and it was just .4 of a pound up.  I’m even happier to report that it is also back down!

We’ve had lots to deal with lately, and there certainly have been lots of times when I’ve turned to other sources for respite, but this week I tried really hard to make sure I stayed the course.  Finally, it seemed to me that the climbing had stopped and we’d reached a mountain meadow.  In a few areas of my life things are starting to look better.  Yes, there is still more of the journey ahead but for now we can see something good on the horizon.

As I talked with my good confessor I was told to look at the Dark Night and to embrace it instead of trying to find ways of avoiding it.  I realized it means I have to let myself cry, I have to let myself be hungry, I have to let myself feel things I try hard not to feel.

I shall end here… but know the journey is just beginning!
