Off the Grid

Sunday, October 28, 2012

Hey Sparkies.

So I haven't been around much the past week or so. I had a terribly busy week at work...just got back from Austin and now getting ready to turn right around and head to Denver in a week for another conference.

In addition, I've had some pretty rough stuff going on in my personal world. It's the kind of thing that has been lurking for years, but suddenly attacks out of what seems like nowhere and leaves you for dead. And you're kind of left shell shocked and basically putting every last bit of effort into doing the basic things like...you know...breathing. And going to work and stuff. So, I've been off the grid. Sorry for that.

Hope y'all are doing well. Make good choices this week.

    And this too shall pass. Take time to recover your balance, I'll be praying for you but we'll still be here even if you have to take time away from updating to work things out. Hugs xx

Wouldn't it be nice to plan for things to fall apart so it would be easier to deal with the stress! It never happens that way. I've found that you just have to take one step at a time and get through it. You can do it. Give your kids an extra hug.

    Travel safely! I hope things lighten up! Maybe the high altitude of Denver will deprive the bad mojo of oxygen and you will be at peace!

    Hugs to you - I just hate it when old crud comes back to bite me in the but. And the healthier I get emotionally, the more it surprises me when it does happen. Thg good news is that I seem to recover more quickly when it does. Take good care of yourself during this time...

    Im sorry to hear about your personal life, but you know what, it's best to confront all the lurking monsters in your life -- because they have to be dealt with -- otherwise your fitness plan will forever be an escape from things you are not confronting in your personal (home?) life ---the other shoe had to drop -- and it HAD to drop, no way around it, but once you deal with it, you will be wiser and stronger than ever. Good Luck, I always feel like you are my daughter & I'm so proud of you
