Don’t show THAT picture

“Don’t show THAT picture”
This was a post I put on a private group on FBook (which I am back off of these days). Anyway, this post got tremendous response because it included a before and after picture of me from the night I was checked into re-hab, and a current set of pictures of me feeling super healthy. My family strongly discourages me from sharing this picture, but I’m seriously doubting many people dig into this page, unless I share the link with them.
Please read the next post that puts me in the same boat as many of you. Health limitations, excuses, pain, age, can all be over ruled with discipline and the desire to to feel better. These pictures speak for themselves in what CHANGING for the BETTER can do for a person, and the longevity of just eating healthy and moving your body, and surrounding yourself with all things good can bring about.
GRATITUDE CIRCLE (all posts must begin with; ‘I am grateful for’…beautiful page full of super nice people).

I am grateful that my hard times have paid off and that I am able to help others learn to love themselves on the levels of body, mind and spirit. My AA birthday was Sunday. 14 years of work. It’s not easy for some to just quit. Others constantly struggle. I took my clean time serious and love to nurture my body with all good. No news, no TV, no toxins. This is our chance on earth to do good. Be good. And serve others in need.
If I followed this road 14 years ago I don’t know where I would’ve ended up. Most likely in jail and in the hospital.
Rehab saved me. But it had to be my choice. And when I got there I was fortunate enough to have two good examples as roommates. One glowing and sober for 30 days, the other such a mess she did not know where she was or where her kids were. My choice was simple. I took the clean road. 6 months later I met God in a sunset.
I have not shared this before and after picture on my personal page but feel safe here in knowing it won’t be shared.
May your day be full of obsessive gratitude.
