Should We?

We may be bringing home a new baby sister for me tomorrow. I've got mixed feelings about it. I'm lonely for a best sister, but I also like to be the center of the universe and my mom's attention.

Sometimes, I think recovery must feel like that, you know. Wanting to be the center of the universe, yet, also longing for connection and love.

I think for today, I'll choose love.

Today's Challenge: Let someone new in your life. They may be cuter and younger than you, but you won't have to be alone anymore.

So, it has finally happened. I am utterly sick of broccoli. I loved it for two years. Ate it every day. Thrived on it. Obsessed about it.

Yesterday, my mom put broccoli in my bowl and I walked away. She thought I was sick. But, I did the same today, but still ate the piece of egg she gave me.

So, then we decided, why not just change the vegetable?

Today's Challenge: If you keep doing the same thing over and over again, EVENTUALLY, you will get sick of it and yourself while doing it. Today, try to change your tune. Just because you change vegetables doesn't mean you aren't still going to get your nutrients:)

Fear is Bravery in Reverse...
When I get afraid, I tend to snap at other dogs and even real life people. Last week I was experiencing fear in the way of winter cabin fever and I even snapped at my mommy.

Not good. I got in trouble:(

There are consequences for our actions. Fear DOES give us the right to whimper a bit, and even ask for help by cuddling up to our loved ones; but it DOES NOT give us the right to bite another person...

Today's Challenge: Don't take your fear out on your neighbor. Turn it on its head and be brave.
