Happy Birthday, me. It's always a challenge having a birthday this time of the year. The joys of Christmas, the beginning of the New Year and then my own personal new year with a birthday.
I look and see what I left behind many many months ago on my SparkPeople blogs. Not good. But, I'm working at realizing my life is a book with daily written pages and each night I put the book on the shelf. It's done. Tomorrow I will take it down and start again. But, for right now, it's my birthday.
I want to give myself many gifts for this year:
I want to be healthy. I want to be less dense, to weight less and to move easily through my world.
I want to enjoy each moment. To realize that it is only THIS moment that is unique and mine. Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present. I'd like that present in my packages today.
Beginning today I'll work towards giving myself these presents. Good health and good spirits...what more could a girl want.
Happy Birthday Mary Helen

You know when you have that kind of day. Things are up in the air, you're worried about someone and how things may be progressing. It's that gut wrenching, awful sense of stress that just feels awful.
I may be getting older, or wiser :) but today instead of falling into all kinds of drama, I thought about a river. I put all the stressors into the river and let them flow past me. Everything that was yucky and couldn't be acted upon, only worried upon. I decided not to do the worry part, but watch the river instead. The pieces I need to think about will flow to the top later.
I'm happy about this river. It worked for me today.

Yesterday I really had a hard day. I was down right lazy. I was so wanting comfort food and gave in to ordering Chinese for dinner. I was rather frustrated with myself.
Today as I looked at the calendar I remembered the date, June 10th. 20 years ago today my mother died. She was an amazing woman, mother, teacher, single parent. She left me lessons of always being a learner, to enjoy reading mysteries and to always remember family is first.
So today I was reminded that though our heads might not "get it", our bodies remember those time of pain and joy that we've had in our life.
I remembered so much today.
