At Peace

For a moment my concerns and worries were suspended, as I sat down to consume a cup of Jasmine Green Tea. A delightful floral aroma danced upward from the mug, a gift of loveliness in satisfaction. Tea has become my beverage of choice. I tried quitting soda, drinking more tea instead, but sadly I could not entirely kick the habit of drinking soda. Do I surrender to this weakness, or should I try harder to fight against the need for high sugar and caffeine drinks? Quite a dilemma.

I have grown tired of watching my weight. It seems like I cannot move beyond 140-145 pounds. My goal is 135. Hopefully in spring, after most of the snow has melted, I will be able to exercise more and therefore lose that last bit of weight. The hardest of all was trying to walk away from chocolate. Such a challenge! There are, of course, more pertinent matters to be addressed. But I refuse to think about it right now, because I feel such peace.

Peace. A fulfillment in my heart. A sense of oneness with the Universe.  I picture myself in the woods, surrounded by the Standing People, listening as their naked limbs sway in the wind. A cold wind, but not icy. Refreshing. There is such serenity here.
