~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Salutations and Happy Monday! I'm super excited to get through this week, because on Friday I'm flying the coop and heading on home to Tennessee! Not only will it be to celebrate Memorial Day weekend, but I will also be attending a wedding, and will be having a pre-birthday celebration with the fam! Good times, I tell ya! How was last week for you? Mine was pretty stellar! Let's chat about last weeks wishes, shall we?



Last Weeks Wishes

 * Write Down Wishes - Ding! Ding! Totally did this one and it made all the difference in the world as far as helping me get my wishes accomplished. I wrote them down on a Post-It and smacked it down on my desk at work, so that I'd have to see it everyday. Mary Jane (from Being Mary Jane) may have been on to something, with this whole let's-use-a-bunch-of-Post-It's-to-write-stuff-down-on kinda thing. I must say that I've never much had a need for Post-It's, but I'm thinking that I will start to use them more. Do you like Post-It's too?

* Making Birthday Plans - I actually sat down and thought about what it is that I would like to do. I talked about it here. Since it would be two weekends in a row that I would travel, I'm thinking that having a birthday in town will do me just fine. :)
* Write! Write! Write! - After what has probably been many months (eek!) of avoiding sitting down and writing, I let it tumble out and I wrote. It was no easy feat at first. I was just kind of blank and intimidated. But after a few minutes an idea formed, words came, my fingers started to move over the keyboard, and a new chapter was born. Yay! Now that I've written, it just makes me want to write more.
 
 
 
This Weeks Wishes
* Meditate Daily - I was in the habit of meditating not so long ago and then I just edged it out because 'I didn't have time'. But just like eating healthy is important, so is mental health. I have the feeling that I'm going to need the discipline it provides in the near future. Plus it helps with stress and just all around feels good. I like listening to music while I meditate. Do you have any music that you like and would recommend?
* Implement Yoga - I.Love.Yoga. There is just something about yoga that I can't explain that helps me feel at peace. After your done, you feel all sweaty and tired, but there is a beautiful serenity that comes with it as well. I'm geeked about a new app I've just downloaded called Daily Yoga. It takes you through a workout showing you positions with video, it talks you through it, and it plays music. Can you say, supa dope?
* Finish The Body Book! (for real this time) - I've talked before about The Body Book here. I'm really close to the end now and I really need to finish it up before I leave town, because I will be passing it on to my dear mother. I thought the end might be boring and filled with fluff, but no! I'm still learning and it really is a complete guide to taking care of your body and explaining why you eat the way you do, and how to correct it. BAM! Please go buy it if you haven't already!
Already lovelies... tell me all about you goals and wishes for this week. As for me, I'm off to do some meditating and some yoga, but I'll be back soon!
Ciao!

  1. Happy early birthday! It sounds like you have an exciting weekend ahead. :) I love post-its! My desk at work is filled with them. They're my favorite thing to doodle/work on practice sketches with and I'm always writing down notes or books that I'd like to read on them. I love the idea of writing your weekly wishes on them and putting them on your desk. I might have to try that too. Good luck with your goals for the week and have a wonderful weekend! :)

  4. I meditate on bible scriptures I've read that focus on the positive aspects of life and God's promises to change this world into a peaceful place to live in the very near future.

  5. Sounds like you'll have a relaxing week with your yoga and meditation plans in place! If you are looking for any inspiration for meditation, you should check out Eknath Easwaran's book Meditation: An Eight-Point Program. It's a great book!

  8. I am very glad you got to write! And it seems like a great idea to use post-its. I do think it makes a difference whether something is on paper in front of you, or on the computer or in your head. Good luck with the wishes for next week!
