Simple truths are the easiest to follow and believe.
Life can feel overwhelming until we take each step one at a time.
I'd rather be cold then hot, you can always put more clothes on.

This is me, learning to love even the scary parts of me....
they need to be aired out and exercised out so they aren't so scary anymore.

Trying to stay still and quiet is very difficult now. I used to be a couch potato. I could lay on my couch for hours at time. Right now, my body needs to be still and quiet so it can heal. I have started each day out saying I am not going to do anything... then around half way through the day, I have to move! I have to get up and at least stretch my body out. This is a good thing, I suppose. No, it's a good thing. I miss the water, I miss my swimming, I've only been there a few times at the beginning of the week and I realized that my cold wasn't improving as it should be. So, I have been downing the VIt C and zinc and eating less calories and calories that are easily digested. Staying away from dairy (except for yogurt) and trying to make sure I am sleeping plenty of hours. But the cough that developed with the cold is getting better, I have pretty much stopped the cough syrup as the cough has become productive and not so irritated by speaking.
I have been stressed out and a bit anxious - the storm at the beginning of the week, and then just the "not getting better" things are getting to me.
So... tomorrow will be a day of complete rest. I want and need to get over this. I have stuff I want to do and I want to be able to enjoy myself when I do them.
I am tired, my eyes are still watery and achy and my breathing is a bit more labored than it should be. So.. on with the vicks vapor rub on my chest, nose, and the bottoms of my feet (I know it's weird- but Dad says it works). So I have been sleeping with vicks on my feet and socks on. I cleaned everything on Monday and need to clean the surfaces again... perhaps tonight before I go to bed.
I want this cold to be OUT OF MY BODY... I want to feel free to move and exercise!
So.... Friday is a day of rest for me. I will be eating right and resting... watching good funny movies that are inspiring and light hearted and by Saturday I will be feeling well enough to go back to the water again...

Life is full of surprises... Don't be afraid of the other shoe dropping, the floor falling out from beneath you, or a glass to break.
Don't live you life in fear of the surprised that come at us when we least expect them.
Never go out in the world as someone other than yourself. Don't be concerned to take up your right to your space in the world. You
are worth it... every yard of it. Never apologize for being the best YOU that you can possibly be. Others reactions to you is their
responsibility (isn't that freeing... to know that what you do with a pure heart and honest intentions are just that and how people
respond to these actions, acts, words, or gifts of ourselves is simply not our responsibility). We all want to be liked, appreciated for
the kind people that we are, or just for the weirdness of who we are.
There is nothing greater than love. Loving yourself (it's not selfish), love others, love what you do, love who you are. Don't be afraid
to share your love with someone or a whole group of people. Open loving love with great hearts on our sleeves sort of love. Be present
in your life and experience the love that is coming at you... it comes in surprises sometimes, unexpected compliments and unspoken words
but smiles so big they melt your heart. Memorize that love and memorize that feeling ... find a way to hold onto so that when you are feeling
overwhelmed by the lack of joy in the world around you YOU can be the spark that lets LOVE FLY!!!!! You can be the one person who changes
a whole community by your smile. You can make someone elses day simply by loving them enough to smile! Love is the great gift we can give.
Each day I am blessed by the geese community in my pond outside my window, they have no idea what joy they bring me when they fly in for a landing
and the bobbing up and down as the clean themselves and fish for food. There is a whole eco system that is self-sustaining right outside my window.
How lucky am I... do you notice the same birds coming to your back yard, perhaps a particular squirrel who likes to watch you through the window?
How about the turtles that come out to sunbath in the afternoon sun, it can be cold, but their shells are warms in the sun- smiling from the sun - a
gift, a surprise that allows us all to smile.
And tonight in the wake of Sandy, I wish to speak joy into your lives. I want to paint it on your walls and color the skies with blue and rainbows.
I want to you to hear that joy is the feeling that comes from love... acknowledging it in your life in the smallest ways. A smile, a hand shake, a glance
that lingers, a kind word, a "good job", how ever it floats into your life accept the love and let it go. There is an endless supply if you just open your eyes.
Let others see your heart, be unafraid, walk out on your journey that is taking to places where goals are difficultly met and in the process all sorts of storms
arise and triggers long forgotten arise. I would paint the dark brewing skies of any storms in different colors than grey and black and pea green. I would give
you magenta and blues, and reds, and oranges... the color of the leaves on the trees and the color of water and dust at sunset and sunrise.
Tonight I give you my love and I give you my joy, I share my strength and my hope for a bright tomorrow. My heart prays for those who are walking in darkness
tonight... I hope that they can see colors in their life that aren't dark and brooding but alive and give them hope for a future and comfort to sleep when a city that
is always alive is actually quieted by the darkness left from the storm. Give them strength to sleep so they can get the work done in the day to restart their lives
and find the love that is right there as simple as a surprise smile from around the world.
