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!

Hello world!

Hello “Readers of my Blog”,

I had to make a switch to this new hosting program for my Blog.  It’s very different than the old blog format that I had for four years.  I was up till 1 o’clock in the morning transferring all the blog posts I’d written and placing them into this new program.  It made me really nervous because I’m not a tech person, and I was so afraid I’d lose everything but it seems like I successfully transferred everything except for some of the pictures.   I will be continuing to get to know this new format and what the capabilities are as well as reviewing all of the old posts to make sure they formatted correctly.  Hello and have a great 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.”

No compromise

No compromise on some issues.  Have you ever been in a situation where you knew the correct, moral choice but still imagined what it would be like to compromise on your integrity?  I have to admit, there are times in my life when I find myself on the very edge of a temptation, teetering and contemplating, even imaging “what if?” just for the sake of realism.  However, my strong moral compass never fails me.  I am reminded that the most important thing in my life is to be able to look my own self in the mirror and to be proud of who I see.  I remember too well how forsaken and hopeless I felt about 25 years ago when I’d had too much to drink and made a complete fool out of myself.  Of course, I had to look at myself in the mirror the next day.  I was beyond embarrassed and full of self loathing.  I thought I was surely going to die of hopelessness.  I stood in the mirror and vowed to myself never, ever to compromise my integrity again.  That vow has remained as a steadfast best friend, never very far from my reality and life.  Although sometimes I imagine what giving into a temptation would be like, it just never happens.  I am grateful I have a strong character, one which I will not undermine by being weak.  There is no compromise on some issues.
