Back to basics....

My many remakings are remarkable in their own way. Each, to varying degrees, includes body, mind, and spirit. Each requires being proactive, rather than reactive.

Running always provides the necessary rubric. Running enables me to: regroup; renew; rework; reorganize; remember; and reenergize.

Running is not static; it requires constant movement. So too do I. Running is my restorative.

Day 6 - a bunch of successful days

will produce overall success.  I know what I want overall, and I will get there one day at a time.  If each day is successful, then how can I not get there?  Today, I didn't run but I did a bit of yoga and P90X, which were fun.  I am feeling good, and that matters.

Day 2 - better when I nurture

9/21 - day 2:   I am better when I nurture myself and others.  I nurtured myself with a few minutes of alone time, a run, and some healthy eating.  I nurtured others by enjoying a walk with a friend, preparing a family dinner, and setting aside time to play cards with my Son.

I missed my Sunday visit with my Mom, but it's okay.  I changed my schedule to be able to see my Sister, knowing that flexibility is necessary.

Day 1 lessons

We each can do what we want separately and together.  I can rely on my instincts and my support system.  Take a breath and a moment to appreciate....

40 day remaking

starts today.  I have been doing bits and pieces of different things that have brought me to this day.  I am feeling good and ready for what is next.  This is a perfect time for the next formal remaking.  My remakings often end with a race.  This one won't, but that's okay.  It will end on October 29th - why not?

Welcoming a new day

I am starting some days with even the shortest of walks and I am so much better for it.  I listen to a podcast and I look around me.  The fresh air and natural setting somehow ground me and better prepare me for what have been hectic and diverse days.

After a long day ...

It's nice to sit for a few minutes with some tea, a catalogue, and a few library books.  I'm waiting for the bread I baked to cool so I can add it to my Son's lunch.

Having the windows open for some fresh air and sounds of nature is a welcoming reminder that my favorite time of year is beginning.

I didn't get so much done, but I will focus on the things I did get done, including a bit of yoga and a bike ride.  Fitting in activities is as important as anything else at this time.  My recent remakings have  been incomplete.  Not this time....

Miscellaneous thought

I wonder if I ever won't ache in parts of my body I didn't know existed....  I love being active, which I was today, but I don't like having difficulty getting up from a seated position.  I will comfort myself by thinking that I am just a bit more fit today than yesterday.  Now I will exercise my brain with some reading....
