FEEL GOOD FRIDAY


The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!

*

This week I was sick and I let go of most things and hung out in bed a lot.  I looove to do this.

It makes me think I could schedule in a day sometimes to do that and then maybe my body wouldn’t have to get sick to get me to do it.

I started to schedule in a day off and that feels like pressure. hmm.

Do you all think you get sick sometimes because your body needs a rest?

I wonder what the early warning signs are?

If I knew, I would say loss of my sense of humor and thinking that I have to accomplish in order to feel worthwhile.

I feel excellent right now. Maybe I’ll go play.

XD

A sick day.

I’m sick today and feel very behind, yet I’m spending the day mostly in bed.

Here’ a photo of a beautiful garden at the Imperial Villa.

Will be back on Friday.

Stay well, y’all.

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY


The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!

*
I’m in Japan today and won’t necessarily be able to link up. I am thinking of you all however.

*
Today I am going to Sanjusangendo temple. The first time I went I was moved to tears by the overwhelming compassion. I won’t say more in case you get to go some time. I knew I wanted to return here.
*
Also my husband is close to impossible to buy for. Last time I was here, I found a gift for him that he has kept in his den.
*
They sell these satin embroidered bags, about the size and shape of a tea bag.
*

*

This one has a tree embroidered on it and is a blessing for health.

*

They have all different ones. I bought some for the grandchildren, with an image of a boy and girl. They are a blessing for children. One lady in my group was asking if they had one to find a mate. I don’t think they did.

*

As I recall they cost about 500 to 800 yen. ( about $6 to $10.)

*

*

*

This golden one looks like it came from Sanjusangendo.

*

This is paper with some thickness inside.

*

*

If my memory is correct, this one I got for myself. It’s a prayer for relief of headaches. Now, let’s see if they have one for memory. XD

*

Sending you all a prayer and good wishes.

FIve Fingers Shoes

It seems strange to call these shoes. They are more like feet enhancements. They are utterly flexible yet protect.

*

My daughter and sil surprised me with these Five fingers. I love them and feel so cool wearing them.

*

My doctor recommended that I walk and jog in sand to strengthen my feet so my knee won’t go out. It has worked beautifully. My knees are so strong now. I’ve been exercising in the sand barefoot and will still do so. In addition, now I have the option to wear these five fingers when I want to. They are good in water or on land.

*

My favorite thing is to wear them around town and feel very very cool.

*

I love these shoes and did not receive any compensation for writing this post. The shoes were a gift from my family who spoil me just right. XD

Weight Loss – Hurray.

My weight is down 5 pounds since I left on vacation. I am so happy about this.

*

My pants were so loose I could take them off without unbuttoning them.

*

So I gave them to charity and got a new pair. Yay. When I get home next week, I have some tight clothes  I’ve been waiting to be able to wear.

*

My comments are off because I’m still traveling.

Have your best weekend ever.

GIRL’S ON THE RUN

Two days ago I picked my granddaughter up at an after school program called  GIRL’S ON THE RUN.

*

I went early so I could watch her at this girl’s running group designed to foster self esteem.

*

It was very impressive how well run it was. Pun intended.

*

They did fun activities that were purposeful in clarifying  values and  were uplifting. Later that evening her father said she was “pumped” about the program.

*

It’s for girl’s from 3rd to 5th grade and at the end they do a 5K race. There is also a group for older girls.

*

My granddaughter told me that she has run 1/4 mile races so far.

*

The coaches pointed out that the girls can walk as needed and that they will all be there to support each other through it.

*

Well, I was “pumped”  too. I am very grateful that this is available and that the women who run it are willing to give their time twice a week.

Stay Well All

I’m visiting at my daughter’s and I’ve been sick with a cold and cough.

Now today my grandson is sick with similar symptoms.

I heard myself starting to say my worst nightmare had come true. Then I realized it could be so much worse.

Now I am filled with gratitude that this is our challenge and not anything worse.

I wrote this two days a go and the children are responding quickly.

THE WOMAN IN 203

I’m on vacation and have turned the comments off. Thinking of all you readers, when I am not distracted by the beauty of family and friends. Have your best summer ever.

Kacey97007

I was 16 the summer before I went to nursing school. I worked in a local hospital, in the dietary department.

*

One of my tasks was to collect the menus from patients.

*

Almost fifty years later one patient stands out in my memory.

*

Why her of all the others?

*

The only time I saw her, she sat in a chair at her bedside table. She looked elegant in a long robe. She was slender, older and alone.

*

There was a single rose in a bud vase on the table and she was writing.

*

When I came in she looked up and smiled at me. Not an ecstatic smile, just  a fleeting hello, an I greet you as an equal and am mildly curious smile.

*

When I got back to the kitchen there was a big hubbub. The director had arranged for this lady to have frog’s legs for dinner.  A co-worker saw my look and said,

She’s dying.

*

She’s dying? The epitome of elegance. For my hair to look like hers would take a whole can of hair spray. If I wore a beautiful robe like hers, it would probably have a bleach spot or two on it.

*

I think the reason she has remained with me still is that she was in total acceptance. She was not trying to do or be anything. I think she was mourning herself purely, past the denial and bargaining. There was something very powerful in that place.

FROM MUFFIN TOP TO SKINNY JEANS

Short Mama at Family Of Shorts started this meme and I want in. I want the results.

*

I want you to pick 5 things that you love/like/tolerate about your body…as it is right at this moment.

*

1. I love my feet. They jog along and let me enjoy feeling free.

2. I love my nails. They are pretty without much effort on my part.

3. I love my torso being 2 inches smaller. Even that much makes me feel so much better about it. It’s an hourglass shape.

4. I love my skin. People often think I am 20 years younger. Thank you skin.

5. I love my legs. They are good in shape and strength. And my thighs are smaller than Eric Heiden’s.

*

I do believe that our bodies are perfect for the work we are meant to do.

Energy

Plumeria

Want some energy?

*

Sensitivity to others energy is very high in this one.

*

When someone is ‘pulling’ on my energy, I notice right away.

*

In my own life, I am not always as upbeat as I would like to be.

*

In particular to my terrific acupuncturist.

*

While she is working on me, I unload all the current happenings in my life, particularly the challenges.

*

She is a superb listener and she gives excellent feedback.

*

Translated, this means, she doesn’t judge me and she doesn’t tell me what to do.

*

I love it and yet…

*

I judge myself for being too ‘nudgy’ and not upbeat.

*

So, I decided when I am there and doing what I still keep on doing, I will in a prayerful way ask for positive energy to come through me and spread out to her and the whole room.

*

It makes me feel much better. I don’t know if it is any better for her.

*

Maybe, it is because I stop judging myself.

*

Here comes dear reader, I am sending you a blast of positive energy. Have your best day ever.

*
