MDJunction to me

jenniferdiva"MDJunction has been just an amazing support for me. The people who are on mdj are so nice! Unlike the many other support sites that I have been on. I have made several friends on mdj who are so supportive and so educated about mental illness. Of course non of us are doctors, but we certainly offer each other hugs, opinions, and advice. I have learned a great deal from my friends on mdjunction. I am also encouraging other people who suffer from mental illness to come on to MDJ. It can be a life line." (jenniferdiva)

Little Things

Feb 25 2012

Just trying to show up today. Things have been ok, just busy and rushed lately. I've been sturggling to take the time to do the things that I need to do.

My struggle right now is not eatingbacon. I'm at work. I'vce eaten a full breakfast, have a healthy lunch packed, and will be eating a full dinner. I don't need to eat the bacon I smell cooking down in the cafe and I won't. It's just enticing.

But it's these little things. I'm trying to live a healthier lifestyle and part of that is not eating fatty foods just because I have the urge. It sounds small but I'm finding small things like this really have an effect on my overall health and peac of mind. Once I start doing one "little thing" that moves away from staying present and healthy I find I keep doing little things until I haven't exercised, or said my affirmations, or eaten my healthy food.

So it's just the little things right now.

 "I trust my higher power to teach me a new way of living."

Step-by-step. Day-by-day. Moment-by-moment.
