“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.… Continue reading Our deepest fear
Today, I am most grateful for: The most gorgeous summer weather we are having. It is beautiful! And I am so grateful to be experiencing some warmth after a very long, cold and harsh winter. Hubby making me some toast last – for some reason I felt quite anxious over dinner time, so I didn’t… Continue reading Gratitude – 20th October 2015
I don’t feel so great today. I feel like a lousy wife and mother, and as hard as I try, making changes to my heart and mind is probably the most difficult journey one can go on. Choosing to think differently about life, marriage, motherhood, etc, is not easy. Constantly there are situations around you that… Continue reading Gratitude – Day 19

DAY TWENTY ONE:
WEIGHT LOSS GOD’S WAY

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” Genesis 1:27

I don’t look in the mirror (except when I put make-up on in the mornings) and then that’s it. I hate looking at photos of myself. I hate seeing my body – the way it looks, moves and just the way it is.
