My reason to be…

I be who I be

I say what I say

I accept the new challenge

of every day.

I do not expect pity

I will not be in shame

I figure with a positive attitude

I can stay on top of the game.

Yes, life can be a league

That is one you would rather pass

Throwing out those unexpected moves

Being a real pain in the ass.

You all have moments you are thinking of

You all know what I mean

Just stay really strong and focused

Never lose sight of your dreams.

Down to the wire…..

No, I am not stressed out. I am calm. I just have a lot of little errands to run before my friend gets married on June 8th. I am really excited for her. She is also getting little things done each day. All of this running around has made me realize a few things. Life is what you make it. You can make your daily chores seem terrible, or you can dance when you are doing them! I am sure the people around you do not care. You might even get them to smile! I have a tendency to dance in public. I seem to do a lot better when I hear the music instead of the ugliness that is going on around me. Call it denial if you want. I call it mental health management. Do you have a way to make yourself get calm about your daily chores? I would be real interested in hearing about them. Until the wedding, I will be blogging off and on. I hope you are all well and happy. I hope you are enjoying your free time and getting to do some of those things you have always wanted to do, but do not seem to have the time to do them. (I wanted to see how long I could make that last sentence! LOL)

Listen to your body….it speaks

I am always amazed at what I find when I am listening to what my body is trying to tell me.

Sometimes I really do not want to hear it, but I end up regretting that decision!

I am sure there have been times where you KNOW you should not pick up that HEAVY box, but you do it anyways.  The pride factor kicks in.

That evening you are just sitting around in disgust because you did not listen to your body speak!

Does any of this make sense to you?

I can list hundreds of times I should have listened!

Now, what I do is meditate and do some yoga.

It really helps me stay focused on ME and what I am feeling and thinking.

When I do this, my body is happier.

I walk different.

I move different.

I kind of DANCE around!

Try it out.

Hope it works.

A First for ME

Well, you have to believe me when I say that is actually me out there you see in the water. What am I doing? Well, my second son bought a KAYAK, with all of the gear. He insisted that I try it out! I could not leave until I did! I have to admit, I was a bit on the hesitant side. I would have rather had on my bathing suit instead of my new clothes I just got! I could see that my son REALLY wanted to see what would happen, so I did it! I am now hooked. I adjusted quickly to the balance issue. I got accustomed to getting wet! I sat in a puddle of water the whole time, put my pants finally dried! Once I got into the groove of kayaking, I did not want to stop! So, I guess I did learn that YOU CAN teach an old dog new tricks! lol Have fun!
