Good morning. Though I want to rant and rave and share my incredibly frustrating story of the past week, dealing with AT&Ts total screw ups and then frustration with UPS and finally with actually getting back on once I had my new modem, but in the scheme of things, its all BS. It rattled my “peace” a bit, but thankfully there was fitness to keep me sane. Beautiful thing about working out is YOU NEED NOTHING but will to do it. In a world filled with hard to control situations, working out is something we CAN control. I love that. And yes, Becky, your comment about that was right on the money–If this was the worst of my problems, I really have no problems.
Many lessons were learned by me in my forced week away from my PC. I say my PC, because I was lucky enough to still connect to the world via my iPhone. I fought getting one for a long time, (until my precious grandkitty chewed my phone charger and it just made more sense to get a new phone). I highly recommend the smart phones. It was a salvation to be able to send and receive emails while my home computer was down.
But back to the lessons–I revisited reading the newspaper every morning, and I liked it. I had more time to help Mitch with the animals in the morning and more time for me to get ready for work. I will be working on better morning time management to include all that and blogging as well. Moving forward, I may some days, post my blog later in the day. Who knows, some days I may not even blog at all. I realized life will go on….but I also learned that my blog entries sort out my thoughts and give me focus for the day. Hey, some days I might blog twice! In the constant struggle for balance, I keep working at it.
A few quick words on Losing It. I admit to having been distracted so though I watched the whole show, I was somewhat distracted. I may go back and watch it again. This episode dealt with what certainly appeared to be hoarders (or at least the mom) more than slobs. I am pretty sure hoarding is not something that can be changed in a day or two of cleaning, but maybe I am wrong. It seems to me that all the stars align for whoever is chosen to have Jillian come visit. The co-workers just happen to be runners and the boss runs a 5K every Saturday–how ultra convenient for a woman who has just one week with a trainer. I am thrilled for anyone who is impacted by the wraths of a person like Jillian, who is able to obviously get through to people who need some getting through to! How realistic this is, I am just not sure. Again, I will be watching next week.
At my husband’s company, they coined today their “Random Acts of Kindness” Day. I think that is really pretty cool. I am going to spend my day as if I worked with them. If we all did just ONE SINGLE random act of kindness today, we could all make someone smile and we could then smile, too. I am on it. Gonna feed Blaze and take him outside for a little while before I begin my work day.
Be kind, peaceful and get on your fitness! ALL things you can control in this out of control world. It’s awfully good to “be back.”
