Today, rather than rushing through things this morning, I have taken it much easier. My son, puppy and I took a small nap after breakfast. I am taking things at a slower pace today. I do need to run some errands and get some walking and exercising in, but not going to rush like I have been on things. What gets done will happen in its own time.

I am just happy that we have the Christmas parties over with, most of the baking and giving away is done, the shopping for the most part is complete, the indoors and outdoors is decorated and I only have wrapping to do, which I intend to get some help with from hubs, and then towards the weekend, start doing a little along to get the house freshened up (some light cleaning) prior to my mom, hub's parent's and anyone else that stops by, comes for Christmas. Also, have son's birthday only a little over a week after Christmas. So have a lot still going on.

I am not doing like years past and shorting myself sleep, rushing around like crazy and all upset about everything in order to get all of it done anymore. That makes me sick, makes me stressed and I just don't need it anymore!

Happy Monday to you!

Many times in the past, I would either start or receive a sourdough starter to make friendship bread. I was amazed at how you have to nurture it - feeding it every day, keeping it warm and cozy. Eventually it presents you with this wonderful gift -the sourdough base to make a delicious bread with and to share with others.

It made me think how about ourselves - how often we don't even do these things for ourselves. We tend to abuse our bodies with the wrong foods, or we don't work out, or we just ignore what we need in general. And yet if we just feed ourselves properly, exercised, etc., the payoff is the wonderful gift of health which we and everyone around us benefits from.

So your challenge today is to figure out how you are going to nurture yourself today. A little self love needs to happen. If this means pampering yourself with a bubble bath tonight, or painting your fingernails/manicure, or if it means pushing yourself to do an extra 15 minutes of cardio - just do it!

Have a great Monday! Let's rock the week folks!
