The biggest thing I have going on these days is that I have all but ditched my cane. I am still using it to navigate up and down the front steps at my house, but beyond that, it sits in the corner, or in my car.
My legs are getting stronge... Read more
On Saturday, I had a big scare. I woke up with jabs in my side, feeling like I couldn't breathe, and crying. Crying fluctuating between pain, fear and frustration. I thought I was going to have to go to the ER. I calmed myself way down. Mental c... Read more

Let's Share the Good
Today, I had an awesome day at work. One huge success is with a student worker I have been on the verge of firing several times. He is not terrible, just missing the mark. I changed my mind one day when I was very close to letting him go. I deci... Read more
This is not the beginning. This is somewhere in the middle. It is not my first rodeo of going to the gym, but I will say it felt good to go tonight.
While I was in there I was thinking, "Happiness is... and then I stopped, and let it be, h... Read more
Positive Steps today
Hubby and I are working opposite hours these days, but our timing coincides on the weekend.
Yesterday, he decided to work some overtime hours while I got rid of 4 bags of shredding material and then dropped film off for developing. It's re... Read more
This is Only a Test
I had to laugh this morning. I am practicing (as in cultivating) my new "take it as it comes" attitude. I am trying to not get easily riled nor reactive to many situations. I am better in some situations than others.
The Universe laughed a... Read more
I am meditating kind of frequently these days, and this time alone has turned out a few thoughts, that I am exploring.
I have no problems. This is not to say that things are perfect. They are not. But life is full of circumstances, and abi... Read more

Smacking Fear in the Face
I am learning to face my fears, and if I voice my biggest one, it is that I don't have the staying power to overcome myself to lose weight and be healthy. How am i facing my fears? Well, recently I joined a running group (even though I am not a ... Read more
I had a very successful and happy week. Last year at this time, I received a less than stellar review (and while most would have considered it as quite favorable), I saw it as a betrayal and a drop in my image. This year, I crushed it, and I am ... Read more
Putting Words Into Action
In the last couple of months something surprising has happened. My husband has joined the fitness revolution and has lost nearly 20 lbs. It is fantastic, because a lot of what we are doing now, we are doing together. We wear fitbits, encourage e... Read more
I'm On It!
I am only going to write a very short bit because a storm is going wild here, and I want to shut down the computer. I have a couple of gigantic celebrations here, and I will write in greater detail in less stormy weather.
1) I walked 98% o... Read more
Intuition Strikes Again
There is no doubt about it. I am and have always been, a very intuitive person. It does get my goat though, when you believe something is on track to happen, and the other person won't come clean about it, at least not until you bring it up. I c... Read more
In a New Light
The other day going to work, I had on a black and white patterned sweater (similar to argyle) and brown pants. I had black pants, but I chose not to wear them. the reason I didn't is that ensemble together reminded me of an orca, and I did not w... Read more
