The more you relax, the more you feel

I'm feeling absolutely THRILLED to be a part of the blog world right now.

I was about to give up on finding the "thing of beauty" for today's post.

"Miss Rumphius Effect" has a Monday poetry stretch each week, inviting blogging poets to share write a certain type of poem to share on Thursday.

One of today's poems was JUST what I needed to read...............
The more you relax, the more you feel , posted by Jeannie on her blog "Things that make me say". This poem certainly qualifies as my daily "thing of beauty".

"When I grow up" (LOL -- really now!) I want to write poetry half as well as Jeannie writes!
Each day, as a person who's in recovery from "stuffing my feelings", I hope I can remember to relax, and FEEL!

Oh, how I can relate. Food was once my drug of choice as well. Now, it's just food. So much truth to Jeannie's poem. Thanks for sharing the link. Have a great day!

You are so very kind! Not everyone will catch that reference - but my fellow compulsive eaters will see it straight away. I definitely medicate with food. No doubt about it. I have worked on it before, changed my relationship with food, lost 45 pounds and came completely unraveled. This time, I am not worried about losing weight so much as I am about NOT becoming completely unraveled - hence the TaiChi...

Anyway - thanks much for the kind words and the link!

Thank you, Jayne and Jeannie! May we all avoid "becoming unraveled". Have a super weekend!
