What a difference a day makes! I went out today to trudge through the snow and it was so beautiful and magical outside, I almost cried, guys! In the morning sunlight, under a brilliant blue sky, the snow sparkled like snow fairies flitting about in the new untouched snow, the clean, crisp air made me feel reborn, smiling lovers walked by hand-in-hand, unicorns frolicked amongst the trees, rainbows appeared above the woodland squirrels, the little birds showered jewels and lace down on…what? Too much? I went a little too far there? Uh…sorry.
So what I am getting at here is that I did what I said I would do. And no one saw me do it either!! I looked around, saw the coast was clear, then flopped back into the snow and made a snow angel!!! With no horns appearing where my head was. Impressive. It was sheer joy! I hadn’t done that in years and am so glad that I did! (Note: Do not make a snow angel when not wearing mittens, a hat, snow-pants or at least long-johns, or when en route to the library because whoever sits in the chair after you get out of it will not know you made a snow angel just before getting there and will thus throw a shocked look your way as you walk away…)
Ok, she looks a little “off”. I was alone. No one to help pull me up and avoid totally messing it up when I try to stand, as illustrated by the footprints and lame attempt to smooth over the snow with my hand after standing. Don’t judge me.
I was about to sit down and share the weekly panic I feel that I have not lost anything this week and my fear that by the time Tuesday rolls around, I might have gained a pound instead of losing or at least staying the same. But first I was looking at Facebook. My friend shared a blog that must be making its rounds on FB. I decided instead of just sharing it as well on FB, to mention here for others to take a look at. It made a very good point and I decided not to worry more than I should about my progress this week; I might lose more by Tuesday and I might not. I just need to take it in stride, keep doing what I am doing and while that is happening, enjoy the now, because I have a great life and I love every second of it!! (Even the boring, unemployed parts!!)
Have a read. This gal said what we all need to keep in mind.
Have a great weekend, my friends!! 🙂
