“Freedom Friday!…but still on a Tuesday.”

You are correct. That is from “The Lego Movie.”

Good morning, and welcome to day 2 of our workweek. Yesterday was like:


I know we all have those days. I’m just grateful I survived emotionally unscathed, and that it’s another day. I’ve always thought that the bad days make the good ones seem that much better!

I rounded out a really long and hard day with yoga. It’s been years since I’ve taken a beginner yoga class, or a non-heated class. Slowing down the pace and not having the heat as a distraction (e.g. Eff, it’s hot in here. Can we get some fresh air? Holy crap what’s she got the temp set to?) was actually a really nice change.

I was able to focus on my body, breath, and the sequence, and didn’t leave feeling drained. Just what I needed!

Today will be awesome because I get to see my little chunk of a niece!


I’ve also started off the day on a great foot (pun intended). it was a muggy 6 a.m. run, but I did it! I’m worried less about my pace, and can already tell that I’m getting stronger.


There are several hills on this 3 mile course that I normally run. Usually I have to slow down after the first little hill, or come to a stop, but today I made up the big hill without stopping. It was a good feeling, and was very encouraging.

Well, cheers to Tuesday! Go out there and create a good day.

Happy national relaxation day!

Did you know that today is national relaxation day? It’s a good thing I’d already decided to take a half day and have some much needed me-time.

The weather is supposed to be very nice today, so the pups and I are going for a hike, then I will celebrate this wonderful national holiday (is it a holiday?) next to my pool with a cocktail. Ahhh…. that will definitely be a relaxing way to spend my Friday afternoon.


I’ve had another really great week. Truly, each day I feel happy to wake up to a new sun rising. I took a moment yesterday to just stop and enjoy this beautiful sunrise and soak in some gratitude and happiness. Lately I’ve been focusing more on staying positive and just not giving a f#*! about other people’s drama or negativity.

It makes such a difference in my day when I choose to let negativity float by, rather than reach out and grab it and let it affect me. Life’s too short. It’s a great way to live! Like Abraham Lincoln once said, “Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

Hope you find some time today to unwind on national relaxation day. Can I get a shout out for the weekend? Woo!
