Where did the year go?

Thursday, November 16, 2017

I know, it isn't over YET. But where did this year go? I aggravated over the political rape, stopped half of my walking and inched a pound up to another here and there.

Basta. That means 'enough' in some language. (Greek?) I return in a better place due to the constructive participation I attracted to my hiatus. Another words, I used the bad stuff to grow up and repair some of my thinking.

I won't go into the story that explains what I mean right now because
1. I will cut my fingernails shorter at the next manicure (so typing isn't so fractured with wrong keys);
2. I have my 10,000 steps for each day completed (or truly scheduled in accurately);
3. My next meal foods are decided upon (so there's less impulse compulsion).

I weigh 161.0 today and long for my return to 145.
I adore the brisk air of autumn and am grateful for many events and lessons I was privy to explore within these months of distress.
No one gets through life without navigating the valleys. And being named DALE, I have myself to move through. (A dale is a valley, for those who don't get the modest self- deprecating humor.)

Getting out of my own way is a PRIVILEGE. I am alive, I have much to be grateful for, and I have hope I can glean more good from here.

Honor the passionate tiger in you with grace and good humor (every now and then.)

    Time has never moved so fast as it moved for me this fall. But we are still moving forward so that's a blessing. Stay strong, Dale!

    After such a beginning, it's been a difficult year to navigate.
