Today's Afternoon Thought... Get Up and Move!!!

I'm trying to get out of my chair at least once every hour. You might want to do something like this too. :) I can't help but think that I would be in all of this pain, if I had started a routine like this years ago. I'm also concerned with balance. I'm not sure if it is genetic or not, but my mother at 84 has to rely on a walker at all times... I don't want that to be me!!

No, I don't consider myself old or sick... but it is getting me up and moving all day long!! I keep this video on the top of my favorite video list and every hour, I do 5 more minutes!

I Wonder Who Wrote This


 "Dare to dream, then watch things happen."
Unknown

Another one of those quotes that someone must have read somewhere and the quote but not the name... stuck.  This is one that I think that I will write on a file care, decorate with a few stickers and then post of the bulletin board over my desk. I want to see if something will happen if I spend enough time thinking about it. And I know exactly what I am going to be "dreaming" about.

Today's Early Morning Thought... Does Your Butt Hurt??


Apparently this Piriformis Syndrome that I have is quite common. All you have to do is look on YouTube to find all the physiotherapists talking about it. Personally, I never heard of it until I got it.

I have had it now for nearly 2 months and it is horrible. If anyone out there has a "Pain in the Butt" and no I'm not kidding, it is probably your Piriformis muscle that is causing it. I am tackling a few more exercises that I wasn't able to do just a week ago, so I think that things must be looking up.

But... it looks as if I will have to do them the rest of my life to keep this muscle happy! And trust me... you don't want to annoy this muscle!!

Please Take This Gift Back... Don't want it!!

"Celebrate the gifts within you on this day and always."
Unknown

Okay, the gift that I'm feeling right now isn't one of the good ones. I wash my hands like there is no tomorrow, carry hand sanitizer with me whenever we go out... and I still get sick. Not sure what I have picked up, but I'm feeling pretty horrid right now. I honestly don't want to celebrate  this gift.  Now, if something nice was to happen today, that would certainly change my way of thinking

Thoughts For an Early Morning... Very Creepy Weather


 Have no idea if this has any correlation but last week, I began to outline a horror plot, and the weather suddenly changed  and today it is foggy as I stare out the window.  We have woods all around us and it is definitely creepy out there this morning.  And come to think of it, we had a rainy night... 2 days ago. 

It might not sound odd to you, but before working on the outline, we had been experiencing -25c degrees temps and now above zero in less than a week.  And if that isn't enough, we have had 5 snowstorms since the beginning of December... two of the blizzards!!

ps...I think that I will continue to work on this outline until May... just to see what happens.

Kind of an Afternoon Thought: Does Holding Grudges Affect Your Health?

 That title really caught my attention because I'm terrible at holding a grudge. It just takes one thing to turn me into someone who isn't going to like you for a while!! As a matter of fact, it is happening right now and I'm not even sure that she is aware of the fact!!

Yikes... I was just reading on Web MD and I'm sure that somehow they are studying me!!  If I want to live longer... I really need to learn how to let go. With my personality and how things affect me, I'm surprised that I'm not already dead!

Will I be able to let his one incident go?? I really need to PLUS the one that I have been holding on to for the past 5 years!

*I would really sign up for some of the topics on WebMD... some of the things that I have read have really opened my eyes!

Waiting Is Not One of My Strengths

 It's nearly been a month since I sent in my DNA... and this is driving me crazy!  You really have to be a PATIENT person which I am not lol!  If you are ever contemplating using this feature of Ancestry... I suggest that you do it just before summer hits. Winter is probably the worst time unless you have lots to keep yourself occupied!!

Or maybe it's just me lol.  I am not a winter person by any stretch!!

Why Fog Is Soooo Scary

Thought they don't always have to be set in fog, weather is incredibly important in ghost stories. As in suspense: you have to turn the screw very, very slowly.
Susan Hill

I do wonder however if a stormy night is the same kind of thing, but in a different way! Each crack of thunder makes you jump instead of slowly scaring you.  I'm not sure which would scare me more now that I think about it!!

Where Are Your Thoughts Wandering?

Today is for observation. Where does your mind wander naturally - into fear or fantasy, humor or stress? Follow your mind and observe where it goes to feed itself. Do you like what you see?

Caroline Myss and Peter Occhiogrosso

When a Friend Is In Pain

"Often the most loving thing we can do when a friend is in pain is to share the pain - to be there even when we have nothing to offer except our presence and even when being there is painful to ourselves."
M Scott Peck

I think sometimes the best thing to do is give them a hug and then just let them talk. 



**Yes... still waiting. Sent out my "DNA spit" just after Christmas. Can't wait to get my results back!!

Thoughts For Jan 14 2017

 Well, we finally have something to look forward to!! Next week, the temps are actually supposed to climb above zero!!  After yesterday's -45 with the windchill, having temps that just might bring about a little melting of all of this snow! And we have A LOT!

Thankfully the winds that we had two days ago blew a lot of it off of the roof. We were getting a little nervous after 5 snowstorms so far this winter!!

Do You Have a Purpose In Life??



I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.
 Leo Rosten

That is a lot to live up to... but if you can manage just one of them,I think that you have made a difference.

Have You Heard Secrets at Dawn?

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep. 
Rumi

A few days ago... I think that I heard the secrets. They were saying... "it's too cold to get out of bed this morning.  I have a feeling this isn't what Rumi was referring to, but I don't think that he knows how cold -45 c actually is. That's what we are experiencing this as of right now!!  When summer arrives, I will listen carefuly to a warm breeze at dawn!

Have You Ever Tried To Deceive Someone?

"Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive."
Sir Walter Scott

How many times have you heard this quote... millions of times I'm sure. It has to be one of THE MOST FAMOUS quotes ever to be uttered.  Personally, the one that comes to mind for me is when I tried to get out of going to school one day claiming that I had laryngitis. Worked for a while lol, until Mom asked me a question and I forgot that I couldn't speak!!
