Stop. Listen and do what is right.

Friday, May 23, 2014

Each day I try to tackle it as though it will be my last chance to enjoy my life around me. I tend to go a million miles a second. Amazingly I am able to take in all the beauty and amazement I come across.

What I have an issue with is listening to my body. Because I want life so badly I ignore what my body tells me sometimes. I am noticing a pattern, I go full force until Thursday and I will feel like a whole other person that is weak and frail and unbalanced. I try to push through anyway. Friday comes and my body is saying "STOP! listen to what I am trying to tell you!" I refuse to believe I am over doing on days I feel great. But the days I don't feel great, I probably should listen to my body. At least tone it down to suit my needs.

I just get so excited I don't want to stop the progress in my health. But too much of something can sometimes be bad for you. I don't want that. So I will take it easy today. I still want to get a walk in or some ab exercises, maybe use my stability ball, although I think I need a new one lol. Be good and easy to my body today. Maybe it will thank me again later.

Long weekend coming up. I am not planning anything until Monday when my husband, father in law and uncle in law will get legacy stones put in at park the local Vietnam Vets built a memorial at. My son won a scholarship through that chapter for his essays on "In the thick of enlightenment". So he has been asked to read the names of those placing legacy stones this year. I am proud of the men and women who serve in the military and have so much gratitude for those who are brave enough to seek that path to follow. Some in the past were forced to, and some choose to. Any way about it they sacrifice so much, so do their loved ones. And I am so appreciative for that. So I will be at that ceremony on Monday, not only to support my family but to say thank you to anyone that will hear me.

Have a safe and fun weekend!
