Just some things I want to share:
I am doing OK. I am trying to survive the holidays. I am trying to stay away from all the goodies because when I am stressed, I eat. I am going on a diet after Christmas. I need to. Being overweight makes me feel bad about myself. I wish I could just accept myself as I am. Overweight or not.
We need to treat ourselves well, with respect, with compassion. We are children of God. We were made in His image. To mistreat us is to mistreat God.
One of my blogging friends has a beautiful Catholic blog called Daughter of the King. That is who I am. I am more than a survivor. I am a daughter of the King. A beloved daughter of God.
I do not need to be my father's daughter any more. I have a Father. A Father Who loves me the way I am.
Jesus became man so we would know who God the Father is. He became human, because God loves us and God wants us to know how much He loves us, that we have value. If God became one of us, then we must be worth something.
Let us throw ourselves into the ocean of God's goodness, where every failing will be canceled and anxiety turned into love. -St. Paul of the Cross
