now that Im rested and about to demolish a wall...

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I have to recognize how important it is to be organized. Last night I stayed up and cleaned the kitchen, putting things away. I feel more ready to take out that wall. It's going to be messy!

    I feel you. Organizing is a heart idea for keep motivating yourself to do what we need to do.
Good luck.

advise from a renown teacher

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.

Thich Nat Hahn

but I like this one better. Spike Mulligan said, "all I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy."

Substitute whatever hearts desire for money at the time. Just be happy. Just choose to be so, and smile over that slow cup of tea.


Neil Armstrong on EXERCISE

Sunday, April 21, 2013

"I believe that the good lord gave us a finite number of heartbeats and I'm dammed if I am going to use mine running up and down the street." (From the book of quotes, IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS.

Oops, Neil! Perhaps today's youth DO get a bonus spin toward heartbeats for wasting some running up and down the street. And bless your soul, you were our reluctant Ohio hero that died last year from heart problems after you celebrated your 82nd brithday. I read on Wiki that your family requested if you wish to honor you, "next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink." I bet he was thinking "Gee whiz people I was joking!"

That's sweet and I don't do it often enough. I will give all my passed-through-here heros a wink or two next moon.

good things about being a frog

Saturday, April 20, 2013

being green
sitting in the sun on a lily pad
having bears and pigs and frogs as friends

an excerpt from "it's not easy being green".

I guess Kermie just had a a 30 degree shift that day, and being green was a good thing!
What if I shift that 30 degrees every day for a new perspective?

good things to get going on...
why it's easy to be nice to myself
why I love going to bed early and getting loads of sleep
why its easy loving brussel sprouts

...discover the view
if you haven't noticed,
please do. Please do. Please do.

what's a little spill

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I am one of women that is really hard on myself....lots of negative self talk about my body and mistakes in life, so today Im going to compliment myself on how I handled the fourth two wheel spill on the arboretum bike trail yesterday.

The dog and I were on the last uphill mile. He runs on the grass next to the trail and I stay on the trail. Usually. He is harnessed to an arm off the seat post. My job is to keep the bike where I can see him. His job is to exercise and get his crazies worked out.

Oh well. As I was lying on the bike trail, I took a minute to just breathe and not worry about anything. My arm and foot hurt, but I didn't feel and stress or anger, AND I didn't think (Im a total idiot) which I hear myself thinking way too often. I just let everything go, lying on the ground under a bicycle on a beautiful spring morning. I did think, these things happen when I am sleepy. Coffee!

I got a pretty rotten bump on my ulna, put a hole in my Brooks from the pedal, but I let it flow. In a minute I was able to sit up, get up and walk it off. The dog was fine... just like after superman I and II falls, and the tipover on black ice.

If I can handle the big stuff well, I can handle the little stuff too. Today My whole left shoulder and side are reminding me it was a big deal. And I did great!

    Way to go getting back up and moving on. I had 2 falls in one week last spring, very discouraging! It stinks to fall, but the bruises will fade and cuts will heal. I think anyone who runs or bikes has some probability of falling at some point. It's not your fault, but it's hard not to feel silly. Great job handling it with grace.
