Here it is Monday afternoon, and I am still basking in the glow from Friday night! As I chattered on and on, talking on the phone to my sister Karen (her blog is Musings, Memos and Melancholy), I realized that what I had been thinking Friday night was still with me...the thought that "this is how NORMAL people live!" (ummm...just what IS normal, anyway!?)
I get out so rarely to these kinds of events, that it was a big deal to me. So when my sister pointed out that there would be many more in the future, it was a novel and exciting thought! And I also realized that I WANTED more of them. It seemed to have awakened a hunger in me for more...more of LIVING life, not just watching it or reading about it.
So, just for the fun of it, Karen and I are going to set a mini-goal for January. Both our birthdays are in January, and we want to find some fun place or event to go to, together, as a Birthday Adventure. We don't have any ideas yet...January in Southern Oregon can be quite chilly, wet and/or snowy! But we will do SOMETHING...and will have the photos to prove it...LOL!!
Oh, and today was my weekly weigh day: 365, for a loss of 3 pounds last week. Yippee, finally the numbers are moving again!
From Dr Phil's book: "A common denominator among people who successfully manage their weight and stay fit is that they exercise as a matter of habit."
My verse for today: "Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you..."
My quote for today: "For many people, change is more threatening than challenging. They see it as the destroyer of what is familiar and comfortable rather than the creator of what is new and exciting." --Nido Qubein
Enjoy the Journey,
