My Adventures in Spark land...day 77 of 365 days...new recipe

Thursday, October 18, 2018

Number 42 of the 50 ways to practice self-love is to try a new recipe. Here is a new recipe I want to try that I've been too busy to try:


I am looking into ways to practice self-love. I am learning there are a lot of ways to practice self love. I do like the questions from 31 days of self-love pin. Here are 2 more questions:

What parts of yourself are you ashamed of and what does your shadow self look like? I am ashamed of my bloated belly. My shadow self and my mirror self my bloated belly makes me look pregnant. I am unmarried and from a very judgement area. I am ashamed more because of how other's gossip. Now healthy people look at me and tell me it's just that middle age look which I am grateful for but those gossiping church ladies! I live in a town of 600.

What is one choice you make right now that your future self will thank-you for? I am eating healthier and exercising.

On Sunday we had snow and 32. Today we are to be in the 60's. So excited! I am hoping to go get food today and a haircut tomorrow. My son is coming this weekend. What I am looking forward to the most is after he leaves having a few days of nothingness to really working on myself! Morning and evening routines. Adding creativity into my day. Clear my head. Maybe adding energy into my life.

My Boo Season fun yesterday was watching the movie-Falling for Vermont. It was the #1 Autumn count down movie. It's not my favorite but they did have a fun Autumn festival!

Thanks for reading my blog.

Keep Sparkling!

    I agree with Linda, giving birth and having IBS will do it. I have come to the point where I will always have a bloated belly due to my colitis. I don't like it, but oh well that's life. I also do not care what other people think, they need to mind their own business and look at themselves. No one is perfect. I hope you have a good weekend with your son.

    Our town population is 199. We live 3 miles outside of town, but sometimes it's not enough.

    Enjoy the weekend with your son. emoticon emoticon

    Having a belly is not something to be ashamed of. Gossiping without facts like your neighbors are doing is. They are the ones who should be ashamed, not you.

    I've pretty much stopped worrying what anyone else thinks of me or my body. I do want to be the best person I can be in body, mind and soul. You are taking care of you and that is important.

    I hope that you have a good visit with your son. I would not care about gossip. Many of us, that have given birth, have a bloated belly. Also I know that you have IBS, so who cares what others think. Just be happy that you have been doing so well.

    I am glad your DS will be coming for a visit! And good for you for taking me time today! It always makes me feel better.

    I once lived in 'snow country' and we lived "out" in the country. My hubby pastored a small church there, and in a small place like that, if you sneeze, everyone knows about it. Shame on anyone for gossiping and making fun of you. You just keep on one foot in front of the other because you know who loves you; and it is only what HE thinks that is important ... the rest is something that looks like what is in my garbage! ... emoticon

    600? My subdivision has more than that!

    Keep on Keeping on!

    Make today the greatest day of your life!
    Until tomorrow!
