When Downhill is Uphill

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Yesterday, a staff member walked out the door in slow motion, or so it seemed.
After she left, I was exclaiming, "nooooooo" as I realized an important document was left behind.

I had a lot on my plate yesterday (and, in fact today as well - ha ha). I didn't think I could spare the time out of the office as every waking minute was accounted for and paired with a task. But, it had to be done, and I did not have anyone else available who could do it, so off I went. It seemed as if I was transported there in no time. It was a cool, brisk walk.

On the way back though, I realized, drats that is a steep uphill. It was even more annoying that I dropped my fitbit 2 days ago and it is among the missing. It's not in the house; it is somewhere in the world. I do not foresee myself replacing that little number. I huffed and I puffed but I made it back to my desk. It was not without considerable effort though.

Here's something great that came out of this interlude. I CAN DO IT! I DID IT. I AM DOING IT. I see myself from the outside in. I have turned the corner. I am right on the brink of success when I was on my biggest losing streak ever. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! I AM BEAUTIFUL! (WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL!)

Take a moment to humor me, sparkies: Tell me something beautiful about yourself. If you are stuck ask me, I will tell you!

    Something beautiful about you is your big big heart and sense of humor and making others feel good about themselves.

    Wonderful Mar. You ARE beautiful. Hmmm....I think that trying to be someone who gives back to the world instead of taking- is beautiful. So I suppose that is me! emoticon

    You ARE beautiful.

    I spent the last few weeks canvassing for my favorite candidate. Today I spent almost 6 hours walking around the neighborhood knocking on doors of supporters to get people out to vote. Three year ago I couldn't have lasted even an hour of walking. I've lost weight and increased my exercise and now I have the energy to do the things that are important to me.

    I am strong, and every workout makes me stronger and amazes me that I perservered and I can do it.

    I love the rainbow of leaves in the background here.

    You are beautiful, you can do it. emoticon

    You are awesome and I'm so proud of you. About me? I was thinking this morning while still in bed, that I am a deeply caring person who cries at the news and touching movies. So, I think that is beautiful :)

    Have a great day and stay safe!

    Sometimes God slips in gentle reminders that we can do it. Good for you. I hope you find your Fitbit. I've misplaced mine several times since I purchased it 5 months ago and when I realize it's not clipped on my pants, a frantic search ensues! I've managed to avoid flushing it down the toilet so far (a worry of mine!) and would have to replace it if I did such a thing. I love the accountablity it gives me.

    Keep pushing and always take the time to love yourself. Thanks for posting, Pat emoticon

    We never know what we can accomplish until we try-once we Do It- we feel that sense of accomplishment. Congrats. Remember that feeling.
