Sometimes life seems so uncertain. As I am graduating in a few short weeks, I am looking for full time employment. It is more of a struggle than I thought it would be to find opportunities. It is stressful, but I really believe that everything does happen for a reason. So I have to believe I will find something. Maybe it won't be what I originally started looking for, maybe it won't be exactly what I dreamed of, maybe it won't be glamorous. But it will be a career that I am going to find happiness in.
Stressful times used to cause me to binge. I used to try to eat away the stress. I would use food to comfort me, because I thought that it never would go away and it could never hurt me. But it did. The food and the other unhealthy choices I made did hurt me. They made me terribly unhealthy. Now that I have come to that realization, I don't need the crazy binges and food to comfort me.
My life is very stressful right now, but thanks to the support I have found on SparkPeople and through journaling I have found healthy outlets for the stress. It's amazing what a nice walk can do for your spirits. Yesterday was a quiet day on our bike path, so I decided to take some pictures to remind me how happy I am when I walk. Enjoy life; it's too short not to!
