Last week's dream focus
Keep being positive, adding one good thing every day to develop my good habits again;  get to the gym (if the pain will cease); hustle to make these dreams come true; STOP running to food for comfort when I'm feeling stressed; and forgive myself when mistakes are made... after all, I'm human!

What went well: I've leaned on God BIG TIME this week!  He's helped me through so many emotional days where potential drama has been right in front of me, but I've refused to feed into it.  I'm NOT going to focus on the past and negativity.  It's exactly what Satan wants me to do to get my focus off my dreams.  No thanks.  I'LL PASS!  (So over it.)

This week's eating has been fantastic!  I've consumed less food than I normally do, like EXCEEDINGLY less than what I've been consuming lately.  Food has seemed like fuel to me and I've found myself having to remind myself to eat.  That has been on my dream list since day one of this blog!  I pray for this to continue.

"That one dream" I refer to often is alive!  Just when I was ready to give up on a previous version of the dream (because they do morph and change often), I found it on life support Tuesday!  I still don't know if this is what God has planned, but I've envisioned it for a couple of years and truly believe in the impact it could make if I just had the right people backing it.

Challenges:  My endometriosis pain hasn't let up and it's getting a little worse every day.  I spent most of the weekend with a heating pad on my stomach and slept as much as I could despite our busy schedule.  This is really wearing me down emotionally.  I'm not sure of the next steps, I'm not sure what doctor to trust, I'm not sure what the future holds.  I do know Who holds my future so, although I'm emotional and searching for answers, I'm not afraid.  I know God is in control of this!

This week's dream focus: Keep focused on God during times of drama, dysfunction, and uncertainty; keep hustlin' to make these dreams come true; keep viewing food as fuel!
