I need some motivation. . .

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I need some motivation to reach my goal for the big 45th Birthday in July. You have to understand one thing about me. I don't celebrate birthdays for myself, or should I say I haven't. But this year is different, and I mean it this time. I plan on celebrating this year as a testiment to all the struggles I have overcome in the last 1 1/2 years. This is a transitional year for me in many ways, and I plan to be a healthier and happier me.

Now with all that said, I want to create a virtual trip to Jamaica to challenge myself, and anyone wanting to participate. This will not only motivate me, but also offer a challenge for anyone wanting to participate. I'm going to post my challenge in the Official Detroit Spark Team page within the week.

Wish me luck and loads of inspiration. . . . . . . . . . . . .Jamaica here I come!!!!!

Little Things that make You Smile. . .

Friday, March 09, 2012

I'm just sitting at my desk at work, and I glanced over to see a current picture of me and the girls, and my little god-grandbaby. It made me smile to think of how she thinks she is my youngest daughter Erika. She thinks because she resembles my daughter when she was a baby, that she is her. It's funny because the picture has my 2 girls in it, and she knows the oldest one is Ashley, but fails to accept that the baby is not herself. How is rationalizes that Ashley is an adult (who was 3 in the picture), and the baby (Erika) is her, and she is 2 1/2 I'll never know. It's just so cute to me! Everytime she comes over, she goes to the wall and says "Ashley and Me".

I believe that is why she has such a fondness for Erika. I think she believes Erika is her, but just grown up. To have the limitless imagination of a child - to believe in the impossible. What would you do or say to yourself if you could as a youth, talk to your future self? I don't know, but it's definitely really interesting to think about. Most of all, who is to say that we can't? We live through others experiences all the time.

Just wanted to think of something that made me smile today. . .I hope you find something too.

    Thanks for giving us something to ponder about. As a child all of our dreams were so doable with no fears or what ifs. There were no apparent roadblocks in the way; everything was within our reach. It would be so great to feel like that again as a grownup. I think that is something to strive for on our journey. Like RTBTMAY said, "NO LIMITS".

Great blog! I'm smiling too! emoticon emoticon

    Wow, what if we could live life with no limitations of our imagination! How awesome it would be!


(Perfect time to be reading this. Even though it's almost 8:30 on a Friday night, I'm heading out the door to the gym!)

Ever had 1 of those weeks?. . .

Thursday, March 08, 2012

This week has been extremely unusual in that I have heard from people that I haven't spoken to in quite some time. It appears as if something in the atmosphere said "contact Doris", and they listened. I am scheduled to have dinner with a few former co-workers on Friday, that I have not seen in almost a year. It could be the weather, but who is really to say? I am just really glad to reconnect with them.

It's Friday Ya'll!!!!

Friday, March 02, 2012

Good Morning! Can you believe that its Friday already? I'm excited about it. The weather is pretty nice for a Michigan winter's day. And above all else, I am wearing my new size 4 Skinny jeans from Old Navy. I don't know why it's so important to me, I mean I have worn size 4 clothes before, but to be able to just pull something off the rack and "know" it will fit me, and then it does, is crazy satisfying. And there is no muffin top either. Things like this get me excited about going to the gym. I can't wait to treat myself to a good long steam after working out today.

I feel so pumped today. I got up and put on some make-up and had a great ride to work (I forgot that people still get Presidents Day off). I got to work and today's scripture email was just what I needed to hear:

"Nothing we own on earth can go through the gates of heaven with us. Therefore, the best place to stack our earthly treasure is on the altar. Surrender yourself and your possessions. Draw close to the all-sufficient Father, who will comfort you and guide you through persecution."

I'm excited about getting off today too. I have to work at the church today, but after that, I want to workout a bit. I'm glad my workout on Saturday went well because it really motivated me to reach my goal for my 45th birthday in July.
