Remembering what is Important!

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

As I sit at my computer today, my obsession with Idol took over and I had to read all of the spoilers. Well they did not make me happy, and I am hoping they are wrong, but they did make me start thinking about what is important in life. As some of you know (and can tell from my status every Idol night) I am a fan of Chris Medina. This is not by chance! His fiancÚ Julianna is my nieces best friend. For those who don't know the story, Julianna was in a horrific car accident 2 months before their wedding and suffered Traumatic Brain Injuries. Many that do not know these 2 are saying that Chris used her accident to gain success on Idol (NOT), some even asking if the story is even true. WELL IT IS...and it is one of the greatest love stories ever told. I began to think that even IF the spoilers are right, it's not a sad time. Chris has lived his dream and I KNOW will continue; they have raised $1000s for Juli's care; she is happier than she has been in months; and most importantly they still have each other and their love. What else could anyone ask for!!

So remember tonight to give an extra hug and kiss to your significant other, kids, friends. That is what is important in your life and that's what will get you through any hurdle life throws. If you don't believe.....look at Chris and Juli and you will change your mind!

    That's so sweet. I know some people don't believe in the whole love only one, but I too have seen first hand. My mom nursed my dad through years of cancer, in the end, one of her friends asked why she stayed. My mom's response, I never thought of leaving. Ever. We have to remember that the whole vows of till death do us part should be meant! I applaud Chris for staying by his fiancees side through all of this. What a wonderful person. I hope he makes it! I have not had time to watch the past few weeks!

Hard day to Remember ~ But I WILL have a Good Day!

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

February 22, 1949:

This was the day the most wonderful mother was born. Hard to believe she would be 62 years old today. Why is that so hard??? Because she passed away May 21, 1992....2 days after my 20th birthday, after being in a coma since January, 1989 when I was 16.

I'm not gonna lie, we had our problems...hello I was a teenager!! She herself had emotional issues that caused problems in our relationship as well. I say she was the most wonderful mom because she was the only one I had! And now that she is gone I realize how wanderful she really was. I would gladly take all the bad with the good!

In the years since her passing, she has missed 2 weddings, 3 baby girls, tons of birthdays. She also has missed the death of her parents, which I had to take care of myself. It has been hard to say the least, especially without a good relationship with my father. I have blamed her passing on every issue I have had, including my weight. Truth is, genetically she may have something to do with it, but mentally it was ME and the way I dealt with things...not her fault. In the past, this day has been met with many hard times, a lot of tears, and a lot of blame. TODAY will not!

I will remember the GOOD times. I will think about what I HAVE achieved, and how she WOULD be proud of what I have done. She HAS seen the weddings, births, birthdays, etc. And she IS here with me everyday.

I love you Mom and I miss you, but I WILL have a Good Day!

    I know exactly where you are coming from. My Mother passed away in 1989 and my daughter and only child died unexpectedly in 2001. Special ocassions always bring a few tears but it's the happy memories we must always cherish!

    I know how you feel. My dad passed away in 1997 within a month of being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Wasn't much time to cope with the thought of death looming in the distance. At the time I was going to school and working full time, and because of that, I didn't get to grieve his loss properly. I was just too busy and it took its toll on me. I blame part of breakdown in 2003 was because of not grieving.

I know where he is and he is watching over all of my family.

What a Day!

Monday, February 21, 2011

My day started our not so good! emoticon
I had people on here arguing with me over stupid stuff and guess it just got me set off. WELL, instead of letting it get to me, I dismissed it and remembered what I always tell my daughters....Not everyone is going to like you....and I let it go!! emoticon

Then we (the 2 oldest are out of school so they were home) worked out! I did my Biggest Looser challange for the day.. emoticon, then a 10 minute cardio video on here emoticon then after watching our shows and catching up...I did my strength sets. emoticon After dinner (which I took entirely off of the site!!) emoticon we will all do a yoga set! emoticon

OH YEAH...I got in all of my water too! emoticon

I posted to my groups, talked about starting another, and had an overall GREAT DAY!!! Here's hoping for more!

So...I woke up sick but didn't let it stop me! That in itself is a huge step for me. I didn't do all I had wanted, but still did a lot. I set up my new wii Biggest Looser 'game' and did the 10 minute starter even though I had no cardio planned today. I also did part of my strength excersises (part was the above workout though) and plan on yoga tonight if my head stops pounding. We also went shopping and got all good food! NO JUNK left in the house (except what he is taking to work tomorrow so it is out of my face!) Feeling good so far.

Today is it!

Sunday, January 02, 2011

The last day of being unhealthy, tired, sore (well in a bad way!) and not caring. Tomorrow begins the new me. Once and for all I will do this. I have kids need me, my hubby needs me and most importantly I need me. The pain will not go away until I do this, both physically and mentally. Many have said I was putting it off. NO, have never stuck to it when I have started on 1/1, so I changed my date! A little psych for me!!
