Running/jogging- Give it a try

I tried something new this morning instead of my boring, uninspired, not-very-often exercise routine on the treadmill. It was about 4:30 am, and I looked outside and thought, “I should put on my sneakers and try running/jogging outside.”

I really have never done this.  I can walk forever but I’ve never really decided to go to the next level and jog.

I thought, “What the heck,” put on my sneakers and work out clothes and stepped outside.   “Good, it’s barely light out, ” I thought, “No one will see me in case I can’t even run more than a few feet.”  Then I just started trotting along.

Lo and behold there I was actually running.  It stunned me. I really thought I was “too old” to try running.  Yet, there I was chugging along.  I felt so light on my feet. It was so much fun! I ran about a mile (but honestly I had to keep starting and stopping).  Really fun.  I am so inspired and motivated to try this again tomorrow.  I thought to myself, “Omg, I can still run like when I was young. Wow, that’s so cool. I should keep doing this as long as I can.”

Have a good day!

Good morning!


Good morning!
Yes, that’s right it’s a good morning, and for many reasons.  However, yesterday I was feeling a little down because I want to be able to buy a few plants for my yard, and my truck needs new brakes, and I need to buy some new clothes to wear for this nice weather and I haven’t had my hair done since February but alas, none of that is going to happen because I just don’t have the money.  So I decided to just take a late afternoon drive and as soon as I came to where I could see the ocean my perspective changed and the power of positive thinking renewed my perspective.  I thought to myself, “Oh my goodness, I was able to buy food this week.  I also had enough money to pay my bills.  I also have a roof over my head and a warm bed to sleep in.  I have cats who love me and enough money to feed them.  I am probably one of the healthiest, energetic, active, creative people I know.  All of my kids are off on their own leading successful, healthy lives.  I have healthy and happy grandchildren.  My life is peaceful and calm.  I can sing at any open mic whenever I want.  I have so much!  I felt unbelievably blessed and humbled and as I sat listening to the ocean waves I prayed, “Dear God, thank you for my life.”
