march 9, 2017…

today, i am grateful for…

…waking up at four am and taking my time to walk with, buggs. we walked around our entire complex three times. he was “pooped out,” both literally and figuratively, and went back to snuggle up in my fuzzy, grey bathrobe. i watched him, as he ran and barked in his sleep. it made me smile and feel good. i wondered what he was dreaming about…running around the big house, with his “girlfriend,” ladybug…or maybe, trying to get his white, boxer friend, bolt, to chase him up and down the fence line. i wish i knew…but, i felt very thankful for buggs and the happiness that he’s brought me…

…three cups of hot, black coffee…that i enjoyed outside on the patio, while the birds greeted the new day, and the sun came up. a beautiful sunrise, in salmons and peachy tones…very subtle, but breathtaking. i thought a lot about my mom and how much she loved her song birds. she wanted us to continue feeding them. i wonder if my sister and the girls still do…

…some time this morning before my shower, to stretch and meditate. i repeated my affirmations, “i’m good enough. i’m smart enough. and dog gone it, people like me, (just like, jack handey and deep thoughts).” and, i had some time left to do some online sudoku puzzles…it all worked together to quiet my mind and prepare me for therapy…

…a nice, hot shower that soothed my sore muscles and relaxed me…

…new, smaller-sized shorts and boxers. i’m releasing weight more quickly and easily now that i’m much more active, mobile, and independent. i think that the rowing machine will help to build a strong core, rebuild lean muscle, and help a little with the loose skin. it should also help with strength and endurance…

…that i was a few minutes late this morning and may have potentially avoided a really bad accident. a truck flipped over and landed cab-side down. it looked really bad. i put some positive thoughts and healing energy out there, for whomever had the accident…

…all of the help that i’ve received from my therapist and her style of therapy. i’m grateful to finally have some clarity, understanding, and answers, as to what exactly took place on tuesday. i’m happy to have things worked out finally…

…a beautiful day, to drive around with the windows down. i love the feeling of the wind blowing through my hair. it makes me feel free and independent…

…all of the lovely produce at the ninety-nine cent store. i picked up some really nice looking, fresh asparagus…mangos, hearts of romaine, roma tomatoes, jalapeños, mixed peppers, artichokes, broccoli, and cauliflower…

…feeling really good, much better than i had been. i found myself bouncing around, with renewed vim and vigor. i felt sassy, spicy, and silly. i found myself smiling for no apparent reason again…

…getting to use richard’s crv and i took it through the car wash today…

 i am healthy and strong. i am thoughtful and kind. i am full of love.

namaste.
