Where did February go? I know, its a short month... Havent been here as often as Id like, but I celebrate today and every day with gratitude
* For the emotional healing that feels complete.
* For the physical healing that also feels complete.
* For the love which surrounds me. My dog, my family and my friends
* For the aha moment today....now it is just time to make a decision... and that may take a while. But at least I know which direction to go.
* For finding a new book club and being totally hooked into this months book!

On this last day of February, I am grateful for all of this, yet really so much more:

-The newest addition to my kitty family - yoga kitty - who is both beautiful AND serves as an inspirational reminder for me (Pier 1 imports, 30% off sale)

-Another Groupon deal to my favorite yoga place, a pass for 10 classes of my choice at $4.10/each (it was a double discount, the shop AND Groupon, so nice!)
-Adjusting to being a one-income home partially by finding deals like the two above
-My new motivational term: Workout TV, whereby I get to watch an hour of TV if I work out while doing so (can't be done with yoga or meditation, but CAN be done with cardio, strength training & stretching)
-Getting my laundry done during the work week this week, which sure makes my weekends nicer, though I don't always have the energy after a work day
-Those three sweet kitty girls of mine, who are adjusting quite nicely to the new addition (yoga kitty sits high up where they often like to visit)
-Always, my health

Stephanie

Tonight I am grateful for:

-This practice and this community of people who share
-My precious kitty girls
-Comforting words of Kahlil Gibran; "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." Truth.
-Staying aware and conscious about what time of year it is and just trying to breathe through the sequenced body memories of the time with sensitivity and self-compassion
-Family and friends
-A solid day at work, with more sunshine to soak in (though not as much as a weekend day)
-My warm and comfortable bed with a soft pillow upon which to lay my head and silky kitties to curl up with

Goodnight all,
Stephanie

Tonight I am grateful for:

-A day of sunshine; I was beginning to get concerned it no longer existed
-Getting the car cleaned of all the dirt and road treatment salty crud
-Running around with my sunroof open, totally enjoying the fresh air and warmth of the sun
-Meeting my most motivational friend today for lunch; she found out I consider her my most motivational friend and I found out she considers me her most low maintenance friend, and I think both are compliments!
-Said sunshine and temps allowing for a nice hour-long walk at the park late afternoon just for me (though my friend and I also did walking after lunch today) ... aaaaaaah
-Spending a quiet evening at home with my sweet kitty girls and leftover Thai food
-My bed with clean sheets to crawl into in a few hours

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about ideas, language --
even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.
--Rumi

Greetings,

~ There is always so much to be grateful for

~ *I* am not the body

~ Rain, rain, and more rain -- a stay-home-from-class kind of day

~ Nutritious and tasty breakfast and lunch

~ Creating a card and finding gifts s proving fun

Blessed be,
Maha

Thankful for:

Hard lesson learned. Lack of progress? check the calorie counts and amounts you're eating. Tomorrow is a new day.
That Mom is having a great week.
That Rosy and I had a fun time practicing.
That I have much to learn and am looking forward to it.

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

On this Tuesday morning, I continue to be blessed and am grateful for -
- emoticon after emoticon days (makes all the difference)
- forgetting breakfast smoothie - (split for tomorrow after filling it with 1/2 and 1/2 instead of almond milk)
- packed lunch
- colleague who pressed on the knot in my shoulder and relieved the pain
- chili for dinner
Life is GOOD - Here's to Intentionally Living and Celebrating the emoticon Daily and Gratefully while not letting doubt build mountains and responding instead of reacting.

* That I remembered to post here today!
* For being down 8 pounds on the scale today... (only 2 more pounds til I am back to my tracker's weight! ha ha ha)
* For getting hotel mixup resolved.
* For reconnecting with old friends. And making get together plans while I am in SoCal.
* A 51 seat on my southwest flight tomorrow!
* My dad's birthday party arrangements are in place.
* My great genes. Not many would still be going strong with the abuse I have put my body through for all these years...

Tonight I'm grateful for:

-The knowledge of my 4-day weekend seemingly providing energy to work out well tonight!!
-Getting a fair amount of core work in after cardio, followed by good stretching
-Plotting out some 4-day weekend goals via my planning calendar
-Balance, always looking for balance in my life, and in my 4-day weekend
-My beloved Arboretum being open for the first Friday night "Night Walk" of the year tomorrow night; I have set intentions for taking a nice walk there, with or without a friend
-My funny 4-legged kitty girls that love to pile up in bed with me; nothing better than being at the bottom of a 3-cat pile up

Goodnight all,
Stephanie
