This is VANCOUVER--on the Stanley Trail---taken by son#2 The Air Canada Pilot, as he ran the trail. ----Beautiful isn't it?----
This was yesterday here-at 7am--on our deck-
-And in case you can't read that temperature---
I am on a 2 month weight loss challenge----It began on New Year's Day---and my calories are coming down , now , to a more reasonable amount-...1268 yesterday----It's a sorta New Years thing with Team Sudbury.
As well as this new New Years eating thing, why not begin a ""Quality of Life"", New Years Goal?......like...Mindfulness.
....Resilience (not honking at people in a traffic jam).....Optimism----new things to strive for, to make all our lives better----
Yesterday, while picking up my new 10 yr Passport----an older woman was standing off to the side mumbling to herself---because I had to wait in a line, I particularly noticed that no-one was speaking to her---Finally I hear her mention a ""bear episode" she had had outside her house--I began to speak to her about this bear--relating that I had had a similar thing happen----All of a sudden someone else added a comment, and before long, we were all into a conversation about her bear--She related that she didn't like living here--wished she was in the next town--
Maybe we helped to make her feel a part of our community---
Maybe it means ..us..."slowing down"".....looking out for the other person-----taking time....Maybe New Year's resolutions shouldn't always be about ""weight loss""----
Perhaps, New resolutions could mean, ""Improving Qualities of Life""-and this --might help out our corners of the world!
But------I sure Still wish I was skinny!-----
Maybe we should harness those monkeys!--LOL
