Recovery on the Web

I saw this today on a recovery forum, I have seen the fix and it is a very interesting website but I did not know about the recovery radio segment within it. There are several shows and stations that play a variety of genres of recovery that will appeal to any audience. I personally can't wait to delve into it!


If nobody has told you they loved you today, I do...

Yoga centers me. I used to do it more regularly. I just got back into it. I figured I had to start somewhere. So I began on a Monday night for an hour. Why is it that we don't take the time to do something for ourselves that can make us feel good inside and out? Don't get me wrong. Yoga is not an activity for the faint at heart. It is not just sitting around chanting Ohmmmm. It involves bending and stretching and a lot of deep breathing. It hurts at first when you do it. It is a good ache.

I like that when I am doing it I feel in touch with the spirit inside me. I am beginning to relax and let the worries of the world melt away. It is difficult to not let your monkey mind take over while you are practicing yoga. What am I going to fix for dinner? What all do I have to do tonight?

What I have to remember is that I can use yoga to get out of the rat race of life and de-stress. I could have used it last night when my head hurt and my brain was full. I just have to remember to do it. That my friends is a whole nother post.

Can you guess today's topic? Yes! It is on serenity. No? Oh, I see. I look a little freaked out, eh? You hit the nail on the head there toots. I was freaking out yesterday afternoon. It started out with math homework. That to me is enough to freak anybody out. Then add to that the fact that my father fell this past weekend on his face. My parents are having some difficulties and it all just culminated in the wake of my daughters struggles.  This is not a whine fest. I am doing what I am supposed to do. Pray, call someone, meeting, read. It can sneak up on you so fast though.

I went to yoga last night and instead of worrying about rushing out to a meeting and being late, I relaxed and enjoyed it. I didn't hurry and said I will make a meeting today. I have to strategize to do what is best for me. I will write things down as I remember and take things slow instead of trying to recall everything. Its going to be alright as long as I don't panic.

Keep Calm and Google It

There is a chill in the air now. I believe fall has definitely arrived. My husband has actually turned on the heat. He never turns on the heat before October. He says it is because he is getting older. He is 4 years younger than me. That means I have suffered for 4 years that I shouldn't have. Right?

I want to do some of these things on this list. I'd like to say I'll do them all but I'll be realistic. The time will fly by and winter will be here before I know it and then there will be a new list. It will be much shorter.

Be kind to someone today. You don't know what kind of adversity they may be facing in their life.
