Listing, Living, Loving--I am BAAAACK

Monday, June 09, 2008

1. Listing: the last few weeks have been very complicated, busy, full of deadlines, and I kept trying to make LISTS of things that I had to do. A review of my lists revealed that I had omitted any exercise, ME-time, or healthy habits. Instead I found that I was listing things for a human-doing. There was no human-being events. NOT A HEALTHY THING for anyone.

2. Living: worked hard on meeting the deadlines necessary for my patients/clients/students. Living was going to work-staying till midnight then going to the castle to sleep then rising to return to work. When I finally finished my deadlines at work, I had to return to the castle to start packing. I was planning to leave the Navajo Nation to return to Texas. So many things to do ... and I did not make my healthy habits a priority... NOT A HEALTHY THING for anyone....

3. Loving: the Royal Consort and the youngest Prince-to-be arrive from Texas to move me and my stuff back to Texas. We go to the Grand Canyon and participate in all sorts of sight-seeing. We finish packing. I start EXERCISING again. We load the U-haul and head back to Texas. I am drinking WATER again. We stop in Roswell, New Mexico for a 'family reunion with the intergalactic aliens'. I am BREATHING DEEPLY. I am LOVING my family and remembering to LOVE MYSELF. I am excited about being back in the best castle... back into the heart of my soul-my home.... NOW I can begin working on my healthy habits. BEGINNING TO THINK HEALTHY... a good thing for anyone

so it seems that I still become overwhelmed with events.
I do not readily remember that I must take care of myself, my heath and my soul
I still need to work on my attitude towards self...
I must not become distracted by 'life-stuff' so that I ignore my health
In fact I must make my health a high priority in my 'life-stuff'

I am ready to BE

blessings ya'll emoticon

    Glad to see you back, lady! Now, repeat after me "If I don't take care of me, who will?" Matter of fact, write that 100 times on the chalkboard, or until you get through your royal head, whichever comes first! emoticon

    There is a reason if something occurs on a plain or a ship to take care of yourself first so you can than take care of the rest of the castle. We seem to forget that don't we?
    Do take care yourself because if you don't who will than care for all the others?
    Can wait to get to know you better also

    We have to make ourselves our #1 priority but we always seem to slip thru the cracks. It takes time to ingrain new habits. You realize what wasn't working and are now replacing them with good ideas. That's progress!

    Welcome home! Take a deep breath and smile. Better days are ahead.
