Watching all the news from Ferguson and feeling like the older I get, the less I understand. Since I was not there the night this happened, I know that I cannot know the truth. What I do know that violence is NEVER the answer and the whole situation makes me very sad….
Pretty much everything else makes me happy, though and I am especially excited for the first blending of the Jones/Zipp family Thanksgiving and have an abundance of gratitude in my heart.
I will be at the gym this morning for Senior Strength, tonight for 6pm cardio/strength combo and 7pm yoga/Pilates stretch and stress reduction. Tomorrow, regular schedule as well and Friday SilverSneakers class at 11:30. So come on out and get in some fitness for your body and mind, as it always makes us feel better (if not during, certainly after).
While there aren’t enough hours in the day, or days in the week between now and Jan 1., taking care of ourselves is the best way we can take care of others so wherever you can find your peaceandfitness, make sure to JUST DO IT!
Just did day 19 of this current 21 day meditation challenge with Deepak Chopra. While I am thrilled that it keeps me in the habit of meditating daily, I have to say, this is the least enjoyable series that I have participated in thus far. So if I encouraged you to try it and this is your first one, I apologize that it’s not a little more concrete. But again, I would rather be doing it, than not! Meditation has subtly helped me in countless ways and I am grateful for the inspiration, which for me, began with the series called Miraculous Relationships. I will continue to participate in each one and hope that meditation is a forever way of life. So glad that Mitch and Roxy join me on this journey. So happy that some of you are, as well. Namaste and happy Friday!
