I rarely get introspective on this blog but I am hoping that writing about this will help me feel better.
My feelings are very easily hurt. I have tried, with difficulty, to develop a thicker outer skin but sometimes I it doesn’t help. I try to cover it with jokes, which sometimes gets me into trouble. I say things to other people which makes me feel even worse. I suppose that is why I am always apologizing to people. I don’t want them to feel like I do!
Anyway something happened yesterday. To tell you all what happened won’t change anything. But, to make myself feel better, I ate 5 sugar cookies. Which only made me feel worse. Then I felt bad-and nauseated.
I AM NOT GOING TO DO THAT ANYMORE! (OK- I will try very hard not to do that anymore…) Since July I have lost 22 pounds. Of that I am very proud. I can’t blame anyone else for my eating habits but I can try to control how I react. I have always told my daughters, You can’t change other people; you can change how you react to them. Maybe I will take my own advice…
On a lighter note…Remember these?
Well, since I posted I have made 6 more! I included a key chain on a couple. They are very addictive!
