My Saturday in Pictures 

First off, crankiness from having to miss Zumba thanks to a headache. 


Then it was off to see some sights at Mic Mac 


Then some shopping at Walmart 


Saw some cool people 


And now to have a cuppa 


Life is good 

Until later.

Wednesday Wisdoms 

I saw this today…


…and I love it. 

I know that sometimes being bold can get me in trouble or it makes me hard to like; but I am ME. 

I love who I am and what I do and who my friends are. I am living a great life and I wouldn’t change a thing. 

I guess I have to learn to be italic. 😳😜

I think that means I have to live the life I was given and not want for something more. To enjoy every moment and do what I love. 

Until later.

Tuesday Touchpoint 

I got up this morning, dressed and went to Body Combat. 

It is the same thing I do every Tuesday; but today was different. 

I kept waiting for it, expecting it, assuming it, but nothing. 

For the first time in a very long time I had little to no hip/lower back pain. 

It was a bit umm off putting. When you spend a good portion of your day in chronic pain you just expect it, and wait for it. So when it doesn’t come you’re instantly sceptical and unnerved. 

Knock wood that this is a good sign of things to come. 

Until later.

Sunday Confessional: settling

Confession: I’ve had lots of emotions since Friday 

Confession: most of them surprised me


This is me and Felix at the end of my race. He gave me my medal and it was a great moment. The day before we volunteered together. I liked that moment. 


This is me and Jarvis pre race. We talked and chatted and considered KD. I loved this moment. 


These were the view from the actual race. I only stopped to take these two. I was not enjoying these moments. 

Pre and post race moments were great. I loved that I had friends there. I loved the fireworks and the end result of being under an hour. What I feel I those moments I USED to feel about walking. 

I don’t have those feelings for a race anymore. I was so intense about the walking and the breathing and the moving that I didn’t stop and enjoy it. I didn’t stop and get a hug from a dear friend. I had many people post race tell me they saw me and waved but I wasn’t looking. 

Confession: that made me feel worse 

I was not in the moment. I was on a mission, a mission of proof. Proof to others that I can still do this. Proof to myself that I don’t give up. 

Confession: I made the right decision not doing the second race. 

My foot was on fire and my hip ached and I felt as though I would do myself a detriment if I tried. 

Instead… I decided to be with an amazing woman 


She got married Saturday night, but Saturday morning she went to Zumba. I got to dance and be silly and enjoy myself (achy but barely foot pain) and enjoy the moment. 

Confession: I see the difference between the moments now 

I’ve got one 5k left in October and then I’m done. I would rather do activity where I enjoy the moment rather than something that gives me a medal at the end but that I don’t enjoy. 


Choose to do the things you love and enjoy your moments. 

Until later.
