With Love On Day 221

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

family
friends
walking in nature
yoga
freedom
creating
helping others

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

reading
watching TV
playing games on phone
meeting friends 
going to meetings
blogging
sleeping
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.
