Celebrate the Small Things – 05.14.16

Celebrate blog hop

Today I am celebrating a day late because I took the entire day off from blogging yesterday. I haven’t had a real day off (except when the power was off from a storm or my internet provider was down for a bit) since January. I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster for a few weeks now and really just needed some down time. It felt good to just unwind, recharge and ground myself for a day.

I am also celebrating the reconnect with a very old friend, someone I haven’t seen in nearly 30 years. In my late teens, she was a huge part of my life and often gave me spiritual advice and hope. We met in an unlikely place, the exit at Walmart. During our brief conversation, we both acknowledged that neither of us had wanted to go shopping yesterday, but felt compelled to just go anyway. I don’t think it was mere chance that we met up again after so many years. I am sure it was fate. We exchanged numbers and I hope to see her again soon.

And finally, I am celebrating that I have rededicated myself to the low carb lifestyle. After being off of it for two months, I saw how quickly my body descended back into the health issues that I had prior to beginning the low carb lifestyle last August. I witnessed the return of elevated blood sugar readings, body aches and mood swings. So along with taking a day off yesterday to regroup, I went back to the low carb lifestyle. This is even harder to transition back to this time than it was in August. I am such a carboholic and with any addiction, falling off the wagon and getting back on again is tough, but I am determined to stick with it this time.

What are you celebrating this week, dear readers? Feel free to share with me in comments.

Each Friday, I join Lexa Cain and friends for a weekly blog-hop called Celebrate the Small Things, where we celebrate all of those small moments from the week before.
