WOW! Have I been on hiatus or what?
With the advent of 2013 I’ve been out foraging through the forests of life, overturning any rock or fallen limb searching for…change.
Rather than stagnate doing the same old, same old, I’ve been giving my cozy, little world the once over. Until I ventured forth outside the boundaries of my old skin…I didn’t realize how glazed over my eyes had become.
It happens…over time.
I liken it to putting on my new eye glasses from Costco last week.
Lifting the jazzy, hip eggplant-colored frames to my eyes for the first time I nearly toppled over.
It’d been a few years since I’d updated my prescription. Everything in the retail warehouse seemed to fly at me. The friendly sales clerk advised me to walk around…get comfy with my new look.
Happily, I’m finally settling in with the new and improved me.
My vision is crisper, and my life is catching up slowly, but surely.
I’m getting the hang of French…”Je m’appelle…hugmamma. …Comment t’appelles – tu?” Just when classes are winding down.
Aaahhh…but there’s always French 2.
Hubby and I are juice fanatics now. Best way to incorporate lots of fruits and veggies. Besides chewing them, we’re now swallowing them as well.
I recommend Bed, Bath and Beyond‘s NUTRI-BULLET. Lots less fuss and muss than those mega-juicers.
Pilates almost did me in. Two privates with a lovely instructor nearly had me in traction.
Five visits to the chiropractor reintroduced me to my old body. Aches and pains that were like old friends…minor by comparison to what I’d endured after a couple of sessions on the reformer.
One 9:30 morning yoga class…an hour’s drive away…was enough to convince me that I couldn’t make it last long term.
So I’m stretching and walking…stretching and walking…stretching and walking.
I made it to 8 out of 10 Creative Writing classes. The folks were lovely, their stories compelling, but I didn’t derive much personally. So I’ll not be returning.
Instead, I might try a class to learn how to do more with my Smart Phone.
I can dial up friends and loved ones. I can text them. I can check voice mail and emails. I can take photos and view them. I can barely use Tango which allows me to see the person with whom I’m talking.
But it’s the APPS! I’d like to tap into those little gems. Wonders of this advanced social network world in which we live.
We all know…YOU SNOOZE…YOU LOSE!!!
…embrace change!…if i can do it…so can you…
