My Daily Observation: 10/17/17

Danny

 

On this day 45 years ago I was born.  I have spent more time reflecting on my life this birthday more than any other.  I guess it’s because I now feel exceptionally close to 50.  I’ve never thought much about birthdays nor have I put much emphasis on them.  This year has felt a little different.

I feel a little melancholy to be quite frank and I noticed my mood change yesterday on the golf course.  I guess I should be thankful that I’ve made it this far as many of my friends have passed over.  I understand age to be a matter of the mind, yet I can’t help but think about getting old.

With that all said, here’s to another year and hopefully many, many more!

Inspiration Link Party

Click below and get inspired!!

In an effort to continue to give back to the blogging community I want to host a bi-weekly Inspiration Link Party.  The rules are simple:

  1. Leave a link to an inspiring post or a link to an inspiring blogger that you enjoy and believe others will enjoy as well (not your own).
  2. Leave a simple note as to how the post or blogger inspired you and why you believe others might find value in reading.
  3.  Try to link to posts that offer up an inspiring story or maybe demonstrate incredible courage.  The idea is to share posts in one place that can become a one-stop-shop for inspiration!
  4. Reblog this post to get as much inspiration spread as possible!

It is easy to complain about what’s going on in the world.  Let us see if we can come together and shine our light on others!

What scares you to the core just by imagining it? What in life are you doubtful about? What in life beats your imagination of attaining? What boundaries have you set for your self.

The creator of our lives did not create us to live in fear that is why he gave us the instinct of curiosity to ride is to the very top of our exploits.

Human life has evolved over the years due to the rate at which other humans capitalised on thier curiosity to bring the world this far.

Don’t accept to live a normal life, Don’t fight to make a living but fight to make a legacy and a difference. Then and only then can you live beyond your fear.

Crush and trash fear and you would live a mark on earth to live beyond the sands of time.

Thank you for reading.

My Week 159: Weird Service Calls, Thanksgiving Throwback

mydangblog

Last week, when the temperature suddenly plunged to around 8 degrees Celsius (about 45 Fahrenheit for anyone still using the Imperial system), I wanted to put our gas fireplace on, but it wouldn’t start. I did what I normally do, which was to utilize my incredible fireplace knowledge. In other words, I removed the screen, opened up the door at the bottom, and wiggled the wires. Nothing happened. I said to Ken, “I thought you had this thing fixed in April. Why won’t it work?” When we looked closer, we realized that one of the wires was loose. It looked all shock-y and dangerous, and Ken, who can normally do electrical work, plumbing, carpentry or generally anything trades-related, didn’t want to touch in on the grounds that “it looks weird”. So he called the fireplace people and on Friday, I had a visit from the fireplace repair guy (the actual…

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…

Drinking It All In

Second Wind Leisure Perspectives

Fun with Photography Taking a little drink of water…fall.

I thought I would have some fun with this challenge using a photo of myself appearing to drink up Yosemite Falls.

“When you drink in nature through your senses, you deepen your awareness of the great silent intelligence flowing through all things. You nourish your mind, body, and spirit as you connect to the divine love of Being.”
— Deepak Chopra

According to Erika for this week’s WordPress photo challenge, “Photography, and any visual art, is all about perspective. For this week’s challenge, make use of sizing, placement, and Scalein your photos. Have some fun with perspective and show just how big, or little, the world can seem.”

To give you more perspective as the challenge suggests, here is a photo of my hubby (in green bike helmet) about a mile from Yosemite Falls.
