With Love On Day 221

Dear Readers,
What do I value, what do I love?

walking in nature
helping others

Now, if you were to look at what I am DOING it would be, 

watching TV
playing games on phone
meeting friends 
going to meetings
practicing yoga
walking with hubby

Hmm. Looks to me that some of what I value is what I am doing, others not so much. 
Now changing habits are hard. I am working on this. 

However, I must keep in mind, that by not drinking, I am already in a better place. I am already changing. 
I must remember how long it took me to come to a place of acceptance of my problem with drinking. It was the slow realization that I wanted a different way of life, for me and the people I love. 
So, I also must remember the new habits or changes I want to make, might take some time too.

This quote from the book, Uncovering Happiness With Mindfulness and Self-Compassion, by Elisa Goldstein, PhD speaks to me. 

Sometimes you hear a voice through the door
               Calling you,
As a fish out of water
Hears the waves…
Come back. Come back.
This turning toward what you deeply love
                Saves you.
