Friday, October 21, 2016      11 comments

I'm reading another Brene Brown book (Rising Strong) and also doing a daily "meditation.. but more like a learning moment" using Non Violent Communication. They are really doing a number on my thinking. In fact I think I "woke up" today. ... Read more

Tuesday, October 04, 2016      13 comments

Yesterday morning I was sitting beside my Sister in law who I admire sooo much and she made a comment that shocked me. It was to the effect that she has never been beautiful. Not that she never FELT beautiful... but never was a beauty. I woke... Read more

Apparently I have a bobble head. My physio thinks all my symptoms of pain and weakness relate to my neck problems. The X-ray showed a lot of degeneration, nerve impingement in the foramen (spaces for the nerves) and bony spurs that stop mobili... Read more

Listen. That was the message today that I woke up with. I have been thinking a lot and I guess it is time to take a break from that. I shared that with my walking meditation buddy this morning and it was amazing how many things kind of ... Read more
Embracing Imperfection
Thursday, August 18, 2016      9 comments

Bare with me... I know I am hovering over this theme. Nice image actually... like a hummingbird sipping out sweet nectar from a flower. Perhaps that is exactly what I am doing. Imperfection. It was funny how I reacted to the new Ikea c... Read more

I am finished my book "The Gifts of Imperfection" and have spent time between chores typing out a summary. I am hoping that a friend or two will want to discuss it chapter by chapter and I want to be able to refer to parts as well as reread som... Read more

BonnieMargay hit the nail on the head yesterday... relaxing can be really hard! My day of rest yesterday was probably the best thing I could have done for myself. It allowed me to "hear" what I needed to. I was given a book and will share... Read more

The past weekend I had items with sugar or overate at times and my clothes feel snug today. I am over tired after working, partying with family, and canoeing. But... today is also the start of MY weekend as guests have checked out and I have a... Read more
The good thing about the plan
Tuesday, August 02, 2016      11 comments

Having a food plan is really helping me stay on track, so today I made an exercise plan. It was a good idea because had I not committed with people to exercise I likely would have convinced myself not to do it.. or more likely done other things... Read more
