I've fallen and I can't get up!
I hope this post finds you well and in good spirits, because lately, I have not been.
Since March 19th, I have struggled with anger, depression, thoughts of failure, and fear.
Somedays are better than others, yet I have decided to allow myself to FEEL and not cover up my emotions with medication, food or alcohol, (wine, of course, doesn't count.)
One of my favorite writers is Oscar Wilde, who said this,
"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."
I am in a rut, a gutter, a hole, and no matter what I attempt to do, it seems I am unable to claw my way out, YET. So, I am looking to the stars for guidance and assistance.
I have kept a semi balanced meal schedule, (I do drink toooooo much soda) I walk everywhere and have taken the dog out more recently due to nice weather and my weight has stayed constant at 156. I have enlisted the help of friends and have been adament about cleaning up, perhaps to the point of being obessesive. And that is ok, for now. Everything is going to be ok. I just keep reminding myself to breathe and eat well!
I have decided to take the list below to heart, perhaps I will use each number as my motto for one week -- 15 weeks is just a drop of water in an ocean of time!
Have a great week and thank you for reading!!!
Bonjour et Bienvenue!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
