“Will You Still Love Me If I …?”

Being Lydia!

I had the TV on for background noise yesterday while I was working on a cake. If I am alone and not at the computer I have to have something on, whether it is the radio or the TV. I leave it on the same station that I watch the news on and it just goes on with talk shows, soap operas, whatever. It doesn’t matter because I am not watching, I just need to hear talking or I get too distracted – as ironic as that may sound.

But two things did grab my attention.

The first was “The Talk”. Their final guest was Charlie Puth and I was very impressed with him. He is funny and a very talented singer/ songwriter. He told Sharon Osborne that he almost didn’t get to sing the song that made him famous “See You Again” on which he was featured with Wiz…

So Simple! Yet So Difficult!

HorseAddict

“I have a little  exercise that Cristolot gave me this week and I’d like to work on it with you.” That Dear Readers, was my first clue that this “little” exercise might be simple but it would not be easy. My coach Belinda Trussell trains with multiple Olympian Christilot Boylen.  Christilot seldom comes up with any “easy” exercises.  So here we go!

THE EXERCISE

  1. Starting from the side of the arena make a half circle to the right to the centerline.
  2. Go straight on the centerline.
  3. Change flexion and bend to the left and make a 10 meter circle to the left returning to the centerline.
  4. Go straight on the centerline and change flexion and bend to the right  and make a 10 meter circle to the right.
  5. Repeat

EXERCISE AT THE TROT.

  1. Trot the 10 meter circle to the right and on reaching the centerline walk, straighten, then transition…

Today’s Featured Blog…Diary of a Recovering Codependent!

Diary of a Recovering Codependent

It’s actually empowering when I use the tools of my recovery and watch how things unfold. Last night I practiced “staying on my side of the street” and it was so easy and refreshing.

I was expecting my boyfriend to come over but when we were texting, his texts were very terse and he said he was going to get something to eat and didn’t know if he was coming over. Now let me just say that in the almost three years that we have been together, he has NEVER gone to get something to eat before he comes over. We always eat together. My initial reaction was a feeling that he was upset with me. In the past, I would have worried and fretted over it. I would have even prodded him to tell me what was bothering him. But not last night!

Then he said he was hopping…

Today’s Featured Blog…A New Perspective Perhaps!!

anewperspectiveperhaps

Don’t get entrenched in someone else’s battlefield. You don’t have to attend every spectacle you’re invited to. Sometimes less is more and minding your own business is the best option. There are enough fighters already. Be a lover. Be the calm. Be an example. Be the difference. Take the road that doesn’t make the headlines. Remain a constant positive force to light a path through the negativity that’s trying to engulf us.

This weeks MS symptoms

These aren’t new symptoms they come and go. I just wish I knew why. I guess I wish I knew why with a lot of MS related things. Spasticity has been bad this week. I woke up Monday morning, or I should say didn’t sleep well Sunday night from pain. I always describe the

My blog is starting to slide away into the ether.

Tessa Can Do It! Positivity is Catching!

At one point I was in a much better place and my blog was growing. I wrote many posts a day as well as a devotional every day. I wrote thankfulness posts, etc. There were numerous stories and poems on my other blog. I still have 2 and the addresses are at the bottom in my signature.

Now my blog is slowing dying. I have some regulars still and I appreciate you guys hanging around even though I find it difficult at times to follow many blogs. I still get new followers, but I feel as if I am letting them down as well. I have to change things if I want to save it. It is so easy to just give up and I don’t want to do that. I worked hard for these 2 blogs only to let them die.

I am sure I have turned people away…
