Things may not be going according to plan right now, however, there are so many things to be grateful for... my intestinal issues have cleared up, I’m educated, I have a loving family, quality friends, I’m in the best shape Ive been in for years (huge thanks to my incredible trainer), and today I saw a number on the scale I haven’t seen for 3 years. The future seems chaotic, but I have to reflect on all the blessings in my life. Thank you everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes, may this year be my best year yet! #happybirthday#26#change#newbeginnings#bestyearyet#optimism#blessings#silverlining#gratitude#weightloss#weightlossjourney
“O gracious light, pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven, O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed! Now as we come to the setting of the sun, and our eyes behold the vesper light, we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices, O Son of God, O Giver of Life, and to be glorified through all the worlds.” - Phos hilaron, Book of Common Prayer. “Luz alegrante, claridad pura del sempiterno Padre celestial, Jesucristo, santo y bendito: Ahora que hemos llegado al ocaso del sol, y nuestros ojos miran la luz vespertina, te alabamos con himnos, oh Dios: Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo. Digno eres de ser alabado en todos los tiempos con voces gozosas, oh Hijo de Dios, Dador de la vida; por tanto te glorifica el universo entero.” - Philos hilaron, Libro de Oración Común.
