Good morning friends…well I don’t know about ya’ll…but we really got dumped on this weekend…it’s been wicked cold this past week = no snow flurries…’cause it’s too darn cold…but that all changed on Friday night…it warmed up enough for us to wake up to this on Saturday morning:
…but Friday night wasn’t all storm…I went to the hockey game with my mom, and the Knights kicked some serious bootie, and it looks like I’m getting a free lunch again
Other than seeming to be as slow as molasses these days on the treadmill, I am very happy with how consistent I have been with my runs this month...and today I am planning in doing my longest run e.v.e.r - 15miles...wish me luck!
Now I just hope that I’ll be able to find a way to keep at it this week, as life for the next week and a half is going to be a little cray cray. Mike left bright and early this morning for Montreal for work, and he doesn’t get back until late Thursday afternoon….at which point I’ll already be on my way to the airport to head to Florida for my bi-yearly work trip…and then I’ll be home the following Tuesday. Mike and I were talking earlier this week, about the fact that this is the longest in our (almost) 14 years of marriage that we have been apart. It’s a good thing that neither one of us is very needy – oh and there’s this thing called technology these days that sure helps ya keep in touch ;)
I came across an article earlier this week and the post really got me thinking, and I am a firm believer in focusing on the really important things in life, and not to sweat the details, so I decided that I would pick a few to answer and share with you all
1. Am I doing what I really want, or what I think I should be doing?
If I had answered this question 6 months ago my answer would probably be very different. Outside of work – in which I consider to be my “real” life – I know I am really doing what I want. Maintaining an active lifestyle and being able to incorporate that with my love for travel!...as far as the work thing...let's just say that it's a work in progress...and leave it at that
2. When was the last time I said, “I love you,” to myself?
Now isn't this an interesting question...and if I answer it completely honestly...I'm not sure that I can say that I've ever said this to myself. Now don't get me wrong here...I 100% do love myself and my life but knowing it and saying it to yourself are two different things. I think that at the age Kennedy is at this is something I need to start discussing with her, that she needs to be telling herself. We are a very loving family and both Mike and I make sure to tell our children multiple times a day that we love them, but as Kennedy approaches life's changes...this is going to be so important for her to be able to say to herself
3. Am I looking for the good in others or am I expecting the bad?
I admit that I am a tough nut to crack, and as humans it can be easier to focus on the negative...let's just say that sometimes this is a battle within
4. Am I more concerned with how my life looks, or how it feels?
Definitely with how it feels. I feel like I am truly blessed and at peace with the fact that other than those in my inner circle (family and friends) I really 100% honestly do not care, or am not concerned with how my life looks to others. Everything I do each and every day revolves around those that mean the most to me in my life, and as long as we are living and enjoying life together - that's all that matters
5. What am I thankful for?
First and for most - a righteous and faithful God. My health, my family, my job that affords me the "extras" in life that I am thankful for ex. the ability to travel and create memories along the way
