Reminder of Self
Most days, I carry along as my happy-go-lucky self, not really giving thought to my day, just plowing through it, checking off my to-do list items and then having a little fun when I’m done.
Today, however, has been one of those pensive days. All morning (and afternoon, now) I’ve been reflecting on my life, my spirituality, and my relationships. I guess these types of days keep me in check to ground me and keep things real.
Part of the reason is probably due to the fact that I’ve gone out for cocktails the past three nights in a row, and another part is probably because today was the first day Shane and I started going back to church in a really long time.
Yep, today’s a day to remind myself of what and who is important and the values I proclaim to hold. A self-reminder, if you will
Do you have some days that are more self-reflective than others? What do you typically do on these days? I’m not a super duper emotional person, so mine are far and few between, but when they do happen, I usually tend to gravitate toward the kitchen to experiment with different recipes – or curl up with a good book:) <—which, by the way I finished My Horizontal Life and have now moved on to Are You There Vodka, It’s me, Chelsea. Sometimes ya just need two break books. And I loved how much you guys love break books too 😀 Can I get an amen to mindless reading? (wait…is that an oxymoron?) Hey, it’s better than trash TV
In other news, I got through my entire 4.5 mile run yesterday! I ran it on the treadmill because the snow banks are as tall as me, and held about an avg pace of 9:45-9:50. And after immediately icing when finished, I had NO resulting hip pain! I’m beginning to think what “they” say about icing is true 😉
Well I hope you guys have had a fabulous weekend so far! Anyone watching the Superbowl today? Anyone making any snacks for the Super bowl today?? I honestly think I’ve never been less excited about a super bowl than I do today. I don’t even know what time it starts! I’m a terrible American!!!
On that note, if you need me, I’ll be in the kitchen…
Bye, loves 😀
