What are YOU doing today????

What are you doing to seize today and celebrate being alive?  Have you counted your blessings today ... like waking up?  There is beauty all around us if we take the time to look. When's the last time you laid down on a blanket in the grass and watched the sky?  Went for a walk and really noticed the plants, animals and life around you?  When's the last time you patted yourself on the back for doing something nice for yourself?  Are you working on a better self-image and higher self-esteem?  It does take work and self-talk .. and surrounding yourself with positive people and positive thoughts ...

Perhaps you should jump out of bed in the morning, go to the window and say "Good Morning World .. I'm glad to be ALIVE!" .. and then go to the mirror and say "I Love YOU .. I Forgive You .. and we're going to have a positive and wonderful day!"  Even if this feels funny at first, your brain will believe what you tell it .. and you are conditioning yourself to start living a more positive and fruitful life.  

There are hard days to be sure .. but there are lessons there as well .. but just like a person starts exercising and working to be an athlete .. you start slowly and consistently and stay the course .. and you will reap the rewards of your efforts.

A thought for today ... and for the days ahead ...

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.”  August Wilson

Much love and support ...

I am trying not to focus on the wt. regained during vacation or my aching feet since walking in NY City like a kid again .... we did an all-day "make believe we are tourits" in the City and had a blast, but OUCHIES two days later in the foot dept.  We had a really great time, though, so no complaints and I did get to update my ex. tracker!
