energy

something popped up in my feed reader.  it made me sit up.  it made me re-read.  it made me think – THIS.  SAVE THIS.  YOU NEED THIS.

 

and the first place i thought to save it was here.  after another round of months without doing anything on here, i thought of this space when i wanted to save something.  when i wanted to document and record something that is important and meaningful and may just help me keep my wits about me when lots of things are not going well at all.

 

this.  this is the spark that will hopefully catch in my life.  thanks to the lovely and always readable (even when it’s just a meal plan for the week) Helen Jane for the solid advice for school girls of all ages.

Energy Begets Energy

The more energy I put out, the more energy gets created.
I make my own energy.

This fact has gotten me over my love of the couch,
my fear of exercise, and
further in my career.

The more energy I put out, the more I get.
Early morning runs and jump roping,
Late night prep and conversations.

Muster up the energy to create more energy.
It’s not easy, but it propels. Further.

 

blustery

it’s cold.  and windy.  and the snow has started.  R doesn’t know what to do with herself – she’s dying to go outside, but is so confused by the flurries.  silly pup.  she played in snow a bunch when we first brought her home in february!

today i’m pushing through some stress by eating warm chocolate chip pumpkin cake for breakfast and drinking some tea out of one of my favorite HUGE mugs.  there will also be cooking and maybe even some baking prep for the holidays.  i’ve pulled out some of my gramma’s classic recipes and some of the new favorites that i’ve discovered in the past few years of being a ‘grown up’ and gifting on my own.  such a strange feeling being so far from ‘home’ during the holidays.  i don’t know if i’ll ever adjust.  i’ll admit…it hurts my heart just thinking about another thanksgiving and christmas away from beauport.  not even jessica simpson, nat king cole, and she&him carols can take that away completely.

and because i’m on a mini-roll again (yayyy), here’s my appreciation for the day!

hope your day is less blustery but just as thankful!

daring to be mighty and thankful.

so i’ve officially joined Go Mighty!  i received my log-in info the other day, and posted a few goals.  it feels good to get on track.  to make my life list listed somewhere.  to be inspired to live mightier, grander, richer (experience-wise, not money-wise…although that would be nice).  i’m trying to get back on track here.  but i’ll admit it’s difficult.  i think i can be more diligent and deliberate.  however, realistic is also an important word to keep in mind. so we’re taking it slowly with toddler steps – shakey and unsteady but determined.

and with that being said, i’m attempting to participate in the Appreciation Engine’s Thanksgiving Challenge.  i’m a bit tardy to the party, but am making up for lost time.  each day, you make an audio recording of something for which you’re grateful/thankful.  today i posted two separate recordings of three things so i’m almost caught up.  i think this is something i can (and SHOULD) follow up on each day.  seconds of my time to create a positive habit.  i like the sound of that.

i’m on both sites as kasaro if you’re interested.  you should sign up too.

let’s be mighty appreciative together.
