A very good Saturday...

I got up this morning and did 70 minutes on my treadmill while watching Drop Dead Diva. Then I went to my weekly counseling session. It went well and as always, I felt better afterward. Sometimes I need someone to give me permission to be kinder to myself. I am always so hard on myself and I know I need to learn to be kinder to myself. I'm human like everyone else...entitled to mistakes, happiness, forgiveness. I guess I need to be reminded of that once in a while.
I've also decided to make a conscious effort to enjoy each day. While I know it's important to plan for the future, I think I've been focusing so much energy on it that I'm missing out on the wonderful opportunities that each day brings. Each day I'm going to try to do something that makes me happy...exercise, having a fabulous glass of wine (ok, well, I do that already!), talking to a friend, napping, being a bum and watching guilty pleasures on tv. I'm even going to try to enjoy work. I do love the people I work with (a lot of the staff and pretty much all of my residents) and I'm going to take the time to really get to know them. I'm going to make the best of everything I've got.
I went and had lunch with my mom today. She helped me pick out which dress to wear to that wedding next Friday. We picked the red wrap dress. Then we went out to buy some tinted moisturizer for my legs. I hate the sun and am very pale. I'll have excellent skin when I'm older but my legs are not pretty! I'm excited and nervous to wear a dress in public. I know my mom wouldn't let me go out lookin' a fool, so at least I know I don't look like a stuffed pig. I'll definitely take some pics and post them on my page after the wedding. It's actually going to be pretty interesting. It's my mom's friend, who's also my friend's mom, who's getting married. My friend isn't bringing her husband so we plan on getting very drunk and having a great time!
So all in all, I guess I'm on a peak right now. Not to say that a valley isn't a blink away, but I guess that's life. We can't have peaks without valleys, so the valleys are blessings in disguise.
More to come tomorrow!
