today, i am grateful for…

…being up at 0400 and working on finishing up that important thing that has been set aside, because of fear or frustration or both. i sat quietly and searched my soul for the specific message i wanted to relate and the best way to accomplish that. i spent a lot of time visualizing what the finished product looked like. i visualized myself being pleased with the end result and sending it. i visualized the reception and response. i spoke these things outloud and now i’m writing about them…but, in vague terms…

…being finally able to take buggs to the barkpark again after his two week quarantine for kennel cough, while he was treated with his antibiotics. we arrived at 0530 and i have never ever seen as many dogs as i saw today in the small dog area. i kid you not, there was easily seventy-five small dogs. it was crazy…pure small dog insanity. it was nice out, still cool and shady. we spent a total of two hours there. buggs played and i walked laps around the park…three miles in total…

…i had three cups of coffee when we got back and took it back to my room, where i worked on my important thing until about 1330, at which point in time, my babysitting duties began…

…i had some time today to work on some of my new photos and post to instagram…

…j**s and i talked for awhile today about my program and waiting to hear back from doctor, before pushing ahead with more strenuous workouts. i’m still doing sixty minutes of cardio everyday, just haven’t been able to do circuit workouts each night, until my doctor gives his blessing…

…a delicious dinner…

i am deserving of good treatment. i am worthy of love. i will have what i want.

namaste.

today, i am grateful for…

…waking up at 0400. walking with buggs, watching the sunrise and photographing it…

…getting to enjoy two cups of black coffee before getting ready for my appointment…

…the nicest, coldest shower that i think that i’ve had this hot sweaty summer. i felt so much better afterwards, like a new person ready for my day…

…clean clothes that felt and smelt really good. i was glad to have something super comfortable to wear for my test. so comfortable in fact, that i may have worn said outfit as a “sleep costume” before…

…r*****d being kind enough to get up and take me to my test, as i needed a driver to drive me home after the test. i was really surprised and really thankful…

…r*****d treating me to a cold drink when i was finished…

…w***y making both r*****d sandwiches upon our arrival back to the apartment…

…w***y and j***y watching buggs while i was having my test…

…really super nice nurses…c****l and l**a…they were funny and kept me entertained. l**a installed my iv quickly and painlessly…

…some clarity and focus…

…for really good advice for reaching my goals and attaining my dreams. i’m grateful for my friend and her kindness. she has a beautiful, strong, and wise spirit…

…losing five more pounds…

i am becoming focused. i am appreciating my achievements. i will have what i want.

namaste.
