Two years ago I agreed to risk rejection and enter the dating scene. Had it not been a homework assignment from my therapist, I would still be focused only on creating a future that includes a decent retirement rather than designing a life that includes laughter and love today. I was as excited about this as I was of starving myself for two days in preparation for a colonoscopy. The results could potentially be the same, disastrous. I’d have to expose my innermost private parts and hope for the best. Sometimes, shit happens.
I knew odds were that I would unpack my luggage several times before I met “the one” if I ever did at all. When I mentioned I came with luggage, a date asked if it were Samsonite. If you laughed at that, you are as seasoned as I am with as many gray hairs, lol. I initially complained that…
Good morning, friends! Happy Monday! For all those who are preparing to go to work, may your day be filled with wonderful surprises. For those who have the day off, are retired, or are enjoying a nice summer break, do whatever brings you joy today. Whether you’re going to work or not, we all have a job to do. I hope you take some time to discover what it is — your purpose for being here.
We all have a purpose — even those we sometimes ignore at intersections or outside stores, hoping to meet your eyes to ask for a hand out or a hand up. We’ve all had those encounters where we try to block out their seemingly urgent pleas for help. If they’re young and strong, we wonder why they’re not working. If they appear fragile and defeated, we wonder how they got that way. I know…

Let me start with the discouragement. At the last show Biasini was a better performer than I was. He did everything he was asked to do. The problem was with the person giving him directions. That would be me! I was just not on my A Game that weekend. We showed at a National ( recognized ) show and had the privilege of a 5*, Olympic level judge. Cara Whitham has only recently retired from judging the biggest international competitions and she was the judge. When we got a movement right we got a good score but if there was a mistake or sloppiness we got a very low score. Rightly so.
After the show I was feeling discouraged and annoyed with myself. At the start of my first lesson the following week I told Belinda how…
Yesterday I helped a couple coworkers in Shelby which meant I spent the day walking around the uptown area speaking with business owners. It was hot and incredibly humid and we were out walking for 5 hours or so. When I got home last night all I wanted to do was eat dinner and veg; which I did!
I also slept in this morning until 7 am to give my body some recovery time. Living with MS demands that I pay close attention to the temple. When it says it is time to sleep, I sleep. I hope all of you out in the blogosphere are preparing your minds to have a great day!
