Blog Challenge- Day 15

Thursday, November 14, 2013

15. True or false: I feel good about myself. Elaborate.

I do actually. Not that I don't have bad days, but for the most part I feel positive about my life and the progress I have made in the last few years. Instead of giving up I have fought to get healthy. That makes me feel good about myself. Being a more positive person these days makes everything better. I like that I have the strength and endurance to do the things I want to do.


I make my niece walk with me two mornings each week. So, Tuesdays and Thursdays we walk the dog at least 3 miles... well, depends on the weather as Cooper doesn't like to walk in the rain. Today we walked almost 6 miles, and my niece didn't complain! What is up with that? She ALWAYS complains. She is 13, and doesn't like the cold or physical activity, so walking with me during the Winter gives her plenty of fodder. After our walk I dropped her off at my parents; house then hitched a ride back to town with my dad. Then I ran a few errands (walked around town to the library and corner store), then went for a short run before doing some yoga. It is almost time for Cooper's afternoon walk...

    20 years from now your niece will be sharing fond stories of how you used to 'drag' her (and Coop) all over town -- walking 'miles and miles' in all kinds of weather-- all while modelling the same active lifestyle to her own nieces and nephews, and building into their lives while sharing time together. You are doing a special thing by investing in her life this way, and she is starting to 'get it'. that is nothing to complain about.
