A timely reminder....

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

I'll start by saying a big Thankyou for my beautiful spark friend Kathy, for reminding me to take the time to smell the roses. Today was one of those days at work, I came home in a not so gracious mood, but after reading her blog was reminded to take a deep breathe and let go of the things I can not change and to continue to embrace the positives in my day.
So Thank you Kathy for restoring my positive day!

I did not get my quota of exercise in today, but on the other hand, I did attend a 2 hours orientation session to begin my Corportate wellness program. I'm excited. I see a "fitness Tech" once a week, who on April 5th will design a fitness program specifically for me, I will also see a nutritionalist who will assess my nutrition. I will also receive a 13 week fitness pass so that I can attend all my aquasizes, strength training and fitness classes for FREE! Now there is a super positive!

Now that I have taken a deep breath and put things into prospective, I can add that although I was at work at 6:30 am, it only took until 10:45 to finally have my computer back up and running! I did not lose any of my data and all my vendor connections were restored! I also managed to get all the safety procedures manuals updated.

Things definitely leaned much more to the positive side than negative.

So next time I am feeling like my world is in chaos, I will remember to smell the roses and let go of what I can not change.

    I'm so glad that I could help you to remember to let go of what is out of our control and to remember the positives...this one time... You have done it for me, so, I'm glad to return the favor... I feel so blessed that you have come into my life... I would probably be drowning in all kinds of negative stuff if you hadn't challenged me that day...
    And how exciting that you had your orientation for the Corporate wellness program. That is so cool... But I bet that when the fitness Tech sees you, he/she will be amazed at how much you already know and do as far as your exercise and eating healthy. You could probably help teach others...lol

    Hope you have a wonderful day today...

    Wanda - Believe it or not...I used to be Miss Negative...until my Kevin came into my life. He taught me to "stop & smell the roses". Like he told me, there are some things we have no control of whatsoever...all we can do is control ourselves & our reaction to things. Worrying is unproductive. See the good in all things. Think positive! So I've definitely changed how I look at things. "Let go of what we can't change!" Wonderful advice!
