TGIT doesn't mean Thank God It's Thursday. I have a page-a-day calendar on my desk at work. It is Don't Sweat the Small Stuff by Dr. Richard Carlson.
Today it says: Members of the Thank God It's Friday (TGIF) club focus primarily on the weekend. But the Thank God It's Today (TGIT) club are happy seven days a week because they understand that every day is unique, and each brings with it different gifts.
What a great thought. It goes along with this sentence that I read last night in Spontaneous Happiness by Dr. Andrew Weil: Emotional well being must come from within, because reaching external goals often disappoints.
Thank God it is Today. I am grateful that I get to walk another day on earth. I am grateful for the wonderful people in my life, my job, my home. I am grateful that I have enough to eat, so there is no reason to feel deprived and overeat.
Even OA For Today was inspirational: One day at a time, I can continue to surrender my lack of control to God and receive in return the freedom to enjoy all the good things of life, in moderation.
For Today: I readily admit I have no self-control when it comes to eating. God can and does, however, do for me what I cannot do for myself.
On the stitching side of life...I took my ice crystals to Michael's to get framed. Even with 65% off it was $100.00. I am almost done with my tribal rooster for my friend and then that may be the last thing I have framed. It is just too expensive. I will have to invest time in watching videos online and learn how to do my own framing.
Have a happy day.
