It’s been a long time since I’ve written one of my inspirations….49 days to be exact: August 12th, 2018. So what have I been doing?
Well, simply put, I’ve been making and taking time for me! As many know, I took my son off to school this summer and for the first time in my life I am living without either of my sons in the house. It has taken some getting used to I must admit, but in that process, I’ve learned more and more how to relax and just get up and make each day mine…with ME first! I had several “crazy schedules” going on and decided to put a few of them to the side…or in the trash! You see, you can’t relax well if you hang on to stress. The two don’t go well together.
My sleep pattern has become one that I haven’t known since pre-giving birth! I sleep well and I no longer get up for the loo in the middle of the night! Weekends come and I lay in bed sometimes til late morning or early afternoon, and sometimes all day til evening. I eat when I want and what I want – and I go wherever I want to go.
September came. The month of my birth. And I decided that I would celebrate for the whole month. And that’s just what I did. Throughout the 30 days, I did some fun things, some new things, and some things I’d never done before. I made a concerted effort to do things with people I hadn’t spent time with in forever, reconnecting with people with whom I’d lost touch! One of the best bits of news came during September. I had a complete physical and the doctor told me that my blood pressure was such that other people my age would be jealous – and after a body scan she told me the results were “textbook perfect”. What more could I possibly ask for?
October begins tomorrow and I will carry my September memories and happiness with me into this new month as I set my sights on new goals and opportunities. Each day is a brand new start to do just that. I’m just glad that I got to fulfill everything mentioned in the poster I’ve included at the top of this article. I encourage you today to LIVE! Life truly is wonderful despite its ups and downs!.
