Power is in the Present

Day 13~

I am playing a little catch up because I fell asleep after supper in my chair and woke up right at midnight. That's okay, though. I did get my video and lights set up for my business. I was pretty exhausted after practicing and learning the process of doing a video.

I did my 5 mile Advanced walk and stayed on track with my food. It was a big learning day for me in the personal growth area. I am excited about every day and the opportunities I have to expand and share what I am learning.

One thing you can be sure is that if I am struggling, I will share it on my blog. I am learning like everyone else. The fact that I am a life coach does not mean that I don't stub my toe at times. That is how we learn. Learning to let go of judging others is something I was really tuning in to today.

Day 14~

My daughter needed my help this morning and was delighted to do what I could in the time I had. She is still recovering from having the baby and needs to take it easy still this week because she hemorrhaged again after this birth. She and baby are doing great. Precious little Charlotte LilyAnne is so cute and growing nicely. Her 9 year old was home sick with the fever, too. I did get in quite a few steps today cleaning and tidying up the house for her. I also went to my ballroom dancing lessons tonight for three hours. The day was totally packed and so needed to go with the flow and not worry about getting in a walking dvd work out.

Today I was more aware of the times when I was not living in the present moment. THE POWER IS IN THE PRESENT. I am learning to see the futility of living in the past and the future.

I had a nice supper with my son. I am so blessed to have him. Since my husband passed on 12 years ago, I am really grateful to have my son through these years. He has been my biggest challenge and blessing. We are so close now. He is 16 years old.

I am ready to get back to my 5 mile walk tomorrow. Overall I am happy with the goals I met with my diet and exercise today. I don't feel like I sacrificed anything to help my daughter. It was a blessing to me.

    Oh, please do try and get some rest. You are so busy taking care of others so now take care of you. Who cares if you don't get in a 5 mile walk~that's almost impossible any day of the year. Your family sounds like wonderful people and you are all so blessed to be together.
