What inspires me? Do I follow my dreams? Do I spend my time wisely? Am I doing what actually is inspirational?

Answers….NO.NO..NO and NO!

Time to change all that…time to really think about those questions…time to think deeply. I don’t like to do’s a bit scary. What is inspirational? What are my dreams? Can I begin to spend my time more wisely ? Hmmmmmmmmm….thoughts to ponder today. I hope to get out in the sun today….that will motivate me to think about these questions of life.

Of course Socrates once said…A life without examination is not worth living…. Hmm….time to examine min!


Forget the weekend!

July 6, 2009

Ok….so I made some bad food choices over the weekend….no since dwelling on that! Today is Monday…. I will make healthierchoices this week.

mad at self

I ate too much last nite and feel miserable today! Why do we do that to ourselves?

Flax Seed

July 2, 2009

Ok…I bought flaxseed to put on my cereal or in my yogurt. How fast does this work? What are all the health benefits? I know women have a difficult time and sometimes need assistance with things like mirulax or smooth move tea. Will flaxseed prove as beneficial? We shall see!

I encountered 7 dogs on my walk this morning. One of them scared me quite a bit by jumping on me. However, she was blind in one eye and looked to be about 8 months old.

How many of you have dogs that greet you on your walks?

Fourth of July picnic

July 1, 2009

What should I make for company on the fourth of July. Options: marinated salmon, baked sweet potatoes and steamed veggies OR: bratwurst, lyonnaise potatoes and red cabbage? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…..

Need to get busy getting the house ready for company!

Balancing act

June 30, 2009

I’m on the quest to find the perfect balance in my life. Well…there is the problem…the word PERFECT…no such thing. That is perhaps why it has eluded me all these years…. Funny how writing things can actually create an awareness of how you view the world.

Now that I’ve had my little therapy session with myself…and realized that striving for a perfect balance is unattainable…I will work toward balance. How to balance eating right/exercise/being a mom/wife /teacher/writer.? Suggestions welcome!

Thought for the day…

Ralph Waldo Emerson…That which we persisit in doing becomes easier, not the task itself has become easier, but our ability to perform it has improved.



New beginnings

June 29, 2009

I haven’t updated…because I’m really not sure how all of this works. I am going to use this as a place to write…think about what I am trying to achieve. Right now my goals are to make good choices, to drink more water….to inspire others….to be kinder….to be more positive…

Baby steps….

A new journey

April 6, 2009

It seems I was unable to attain my goal of abstaining from sugar for 21 days. It’s time to be on a better journey now. I just want to live healthier. I have a birthday coming this Thursday. I would like to just make better choices. I would like to not beat myself up when I mess up… I want to be happy, and healthy. I just want to be!

Vitamin B complex

March 18, 2009

My new friend is in the form of a vitamin. A friend recommended this to me in order to alleviate lethargy. I just began taking it today…in liquid form. I love it! It gave me a boost of energy that I haven’t experienced in quite some time. I hope this wasn’t just a first time coincidence!
