Working, living and loving every day. Life is a little bit of a struggle sometimes. But overall it is pretty good. I am a mom, a grandma, a school social worker at two different middle schools, a pescetarian and a wife. I wanted to be a Buddhist but I kind of sucked at it. This summer I was awesome healthy. I exercised every day, I used my Fitbit and Sparkpeople religiously. School started and Bam! Down the rabbit hole I went. Exercising and healthy eating are a challenge right now. I am getting back on track. Dreaming of going into private practice, living off the grid and homesteading someday. Hoping to live a healthy, fit and authentic life were I have more control over my food supply, my energy supply and most importantly my own time!

    Hi! It's always great to meet other Doctor Who fans. I read a couple of your blogs and see we both share a liking for metaphors. emoticon I particularly like the bank one. I need to think of it that way more often.

    Have a great weekend!

    Thanks! I've been working hard at staying active. I work at the computer most of the day so afterwards I just want to move. Pushing a bit to fight on the effects of Menopause....LOL

    Welcome to the Meditation & Mindfulness team. Thanks for joining us. I can see that you can have an emotional and demanding career. I worked for an L.C.S.W over 20 years ago its hard not to bring home the mental baggage from work. Hence the reason I changed my choice of career path from Social Work to Nursing many years ago.
