The colors of my life

Friday, January 17, 2020

Good morning friends.. today I sit, back home.. at my desk, yearning for yesterday. Or at least the peace of yesterday! While I was away last week, although it was for business reasons, I was really able to take advantage of some downtime to hike and explore and do those things that bring me great joy.. I was able to escape the realities of home for brief periods of time and clear my mind of the clutter so that I was able to not only see, but to hear and deeply feel the message that was being painted on the sky. I have so many "are those real" photos, a few I've shared, some I've yet to upload and reveal.

Stepped on the scale this morning, which I hate to do after a red eye flight home.. or immediately after any flight really because the number is always wacky.. but I did it anyway and to my surprise, I'm right where I left off .. above the "magic get out of jail free card", pushing the girl, "pick some small puzzle pieces to fit into the picture this week mode".

Since I skipped yesterday, I will get my 2 miles in today.. I did try to get it in, but then I realized I was in my hiking shoes and not my sneakers and it felt really awkward and I didn't want to injure myself.. but I did manage to get close to 19k steps anyway with my 2 hikes.. Danay and I went back to the hike we did at sunrise Saturday morning for sunset last night and it truly felt like we were climbing a stairway to heaven.

We capped off our last night together with this fabulous sushi meal that we shared and cold stone creamery ice cream.. I got the chocolate truffle fudge, she got the salted caramel.

A sweet ending to a fantastic week, spent with so many great friends. My heart is full, my mind is trying to come up with ways I can be two places at once.. as I truly slip into and out of my east coast/desert southwest lives each time leaving pieces of myself, yet intertwining other pieces making a tapestry of colors and experiences that create the most wonderful picture I could imagine.

I am truly happy and content and love my life and because of this, minor fluctuations on the scale mean nothing to me. I will never, ever let a number rule the way I feel about myself.. And I truly hope for your peace of mind and well being, that you too realize that it's just a number!

This is the picture that stopped me in my tracks and I can not stop looking at.. shot with my cell phone, #nofilter Oh and you have to see our fabulous meal too!

Have a fabulous Friday!
