Celebration of Joy!
Tuesday, December 01, 2020
Smiled at the scale this morning! Committed to living healthy and eating smart!! SparkPeople has helped me so much to overall stay on track.
That said, I am asking my SparkFriends to indulge me in another area of my life. For the last 3 years, since I started playing piano/keyboard again, I have been calling my mom every day in December and playing her a Christmas song. Yesterday I posted 12 songs to my YouTube channel that Natalie set up for me. So, my first Christmas ever without a mother, I think I will post songs here.
This is clearly a celebration of joy; not of skill. I play about as well as I played in 5th grade now! But I really believe that relearning to play piano along with my SparkPeople-encouraged run/exercise and some reading are the best way to keep my brain active.
I truly love Christmas music. This is real joy. Such good memories. No perfectionism here; just posting what I enjoy, what I can easily play without stressing.
Wishing you a joyous Christmas season!
