Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

The Diet of a Lifetime

There is a huge emotional component to weight loss
Carnie Wilson

OK...let's be clear
You are on your own for the extra pounds

This  is a plan for the heavy heart

Get rid of all those things that are weighing you down!

Throw away the anger

choose a diet of forgiveness

And cut out the regret

Replace it with a steady diet of peace
Stop trying to race to the top of some silly, meaningless ladder

and consume yourself with the needs of others

Then, you will find yourself lighter by the moment
Because not only is this a diet that is heart healthy,
but one that is fit for life.

And that's poetiquejustis
                Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret--it leads only to evil.
              Psalm 37:8
