55 – little victories…

30 07 2010

It is time to celebrate the little things, the little victories… So – here are the things I am celebrating:

– having choices in the food I eat – especially having the ability to choose to eat fresh, local, organic produce – and to choose not to eat most processed foods, especially those with artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives in them!

– having a husband who calls me hot! I have always wanted this, and now he is doing it! He finds me hot, and I love it!

– getting little glimpses of the future – I had a small ‘premonition’ of sorts tonight while I was in the bathroom at the movie theatre… I got to see what I will look and feel like on my 32nd birthday, and it is wonderful! Brightened up an already beautiful day!

– Putting on a pair of pants that were too tight for me 2 months ago, and that now are almost too big on me!

– Wearing clothes from my sister, who I always thought would be so much skinnier than I am, that I would never fit into the same clothes as her (still not there completely, but at least they fit me somewhat… even if not completely!)

– Being in love – not only with my husband, and with life, but starting to be in love with myself – with who I am – and with who I am becoming!

So – if you are up for it, come celebrate the little victories with me, because life is sweet!
