What The Day Brings

We just don't know what each day is going to bring, do we?  This week has been wrought with challenges - mental, physical and emotional.  And amazingly, I am able to effectively deal with the challenges as they are being flung at me.  Could it be I am able to handle life better when I am eating healthy and exercising regularly?  Could it be that it strengthens me physically and emotionally?  Why, I do declare that is the case!

So today has turned out to be a no work day.  My son has some medical issues and needs to be seen by his pediatrician.  I was planning on doing that Saturday, but he decided to speed up the process by getting his finger jammed by a basketball yesterday.  I took him to one of those nighttime clinics, but now I need to let his own doctor take a peek.  So that's one thing that the day brings.

My trainer is sick this morning (waving to Nina...hope you feel better soon!)  My first reaction (after feeling bad for her) was "Yay! I get the day off!"  What???? I can't let that be an excuse to not do anything!  I'm doing this for me; allow me to pledge right here to all of you that no matter what, when I am done posting this I will go workout.  So that's another thing today brings.

But the most important thing that today is going to bring is......The Avett Brothers concert tonight in DC!  I have been looking forward to this since the last time I saw them (Nashville Oct 31/31st).  This is my son's first time seeing them.  I hope I don't embarrass him too badly by standing, screaming, singing, and crying like the fangirl that I am.  What can I say? I'm a big dork.

I never really know what each day is going to bring - work challenges, parenting challenges, fitness challenges, spiritual and relational challenges - some days a combination of all the above.  What I DO know, however, is that the more I focus on making my own next right choices, including eating healthy whole foods and working out faithfully, the better able I am to handle them all.  And that's a fact!

Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
