Getting Comfy being me

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. -- e.e. cummings, 1955

I'm learning to be the best Me I can be. I think it's been harder figuring out exactly who I am now that I have this "blank slate" in front of me. I've been given a second chance at a brand new life which is both exciting and a little daunting at the same time.

I took some time and figured out exactly what was important to me in my life. I discovered what I wanted to fill my life with: God, health, family, photography. And, I've began to take steps forward in those areas.

The first step I took was to find a new church "home." I think I did that yesterday. I found a new church, really close to home, with fabulous music, a great Bible message filled with easy to relate to personal stories and great humor.

The next step will be to s-l-o-w-l-y build my health back up. Recovering from surgery and illnesses is hard work. I've discovered that it takes patience and diligence and continuity.

I'm leaning heavily on my Faith and practicing the "One Day at a Time" approach.. I've never really lived that motto before and now I can honestly say, I am now! I'm not going to worry about tomorrow or next week. I'm only going to focus on the day ahead of me. The rest will come and be handled in God's time.

Blessings of inspiration to you all this week!
