Inspiration and Success

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

I had a very inspiring and interesting conversation today. Not the usual job interview, but really an exchange of ideas and concepts. I felt so confident, it is unbelievable, what the past years and months have generated in me.

I can start in a few weeks. To start next week would have been to wild and unplanned for.

It feels as if the decision to return to Spark has been a decision to take care of all aspects of my life - and now the Universe is responding. What an adventure!

Unexpected opportunities

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

Today I received a call from somebody who might need my services. They pay not that much, but more than I have at the moment.

And, they will add to my resume!!!

Tomorrow we will meet and maybe on Monday I will set sails to conquer a new adventure. It is never too late to change directions!

When I looked for all my papers I found that I am working towards this opportunity for 16 years - and I never realized what I was doing! I always thought that my next step was just sensible. But actually I was trying to make a dream come true.

My dream was to be a teacher. But teachers were not appreciated in my family.

And now, way over fifty ... maybe ... we'll see...

Live is amazing!

Background of my page

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

Whenever I open my own Spark-Page I feel soooo happy! This is a picture of an ancient roman street. Almost 2.ooo years old. Isn't it beautiful?

    This is very pretty. Why don't you have a copy of this photo in your picture gallery?
It only flashes for a brief second. I would like to see it for a longer time.

Blessings.

Some changes - and their results

Sunday, September 07, 2014

The first week of taking care for myself in a consistent way shows results. I weighted in at 3kg (around 6.5 pounds) less, than a week before. This is due to water-loss.

I've changed my diet, watch what I eat and track it.
I drink my water - not always the amount I plan for, but over all way more than before and it has done its work.
Up to now every day in September I did my exercise. 10 minutes and some walking. From the past I know, that if I get too ambitious I will drop it. But those tiny 10 minutes, that I is something that I can manage.

I have been to the hairdresser's. I asked her about some hair-loss that I suspected. And she confirmed it. She told me, that sometimes vitamin D deficit could be the culprit. So I investigated it. I don't go outside very often and vitamin D is built by the body with help from the sun. When I looked further into this matter I found, that even muscle pain and an overall weakness in muscles and joints can be caused by vitamin D deficit.

Now I take a highly dosed vitamin D supplement and the muscle pain is much less. It feels so much easier to move and so much lighter.

I am so used to cope with this pain and now it feels so unusual that the pain is subsiding. I will see whether this happens simply coincidentally or whether I have found a solution.

At the moment movement is so easy - it is a joy! Of course the overall strength is not the best but now I can work on that - almost painfree!
