Soothing Sunday

Some Sundays are meant to do nothing…..and today is that day for me. Super busy week with my regular fitness schedule and then 6 new kids classes starting. Still made time for a fun girls night with wine and a concert under our towns water tower.

Fun housewarming party last night for one of our favorite kids and his fiance.

So today has been a football, brunch, mimosas, bubble bath, kind of day. I did get some work done here for the blog and some volunteer online work I do, but overall, just the kind of Sunday I needed.

I hope you all found the soothing Sunday you needed as well.

South Dakota Day 2

Today we took a walk and checked out the little town of Hurley. The main street has a bar, a bank, a post office and the library. The park has a really cool memorial that has been there since 1908. Looking at the homes we found several abandoned homes that you could tell were beautiful when they were lived in and loved. We looked in the windows and talked about how we would restore them. Looking out at all the open space and out at the corn fields I was struck by how peaceful and quiet it was. Walking back to my mothers in laws house I noticed how many homes had an American Flag proudly displayed. We then sat on the deck, Bbq’d dinner and I enjoyed a glass of Rose wine and watched the fireflies. It was a beautiful peaceful day and I am glad I left my phone behind to really enjoy the moments and connect with my husband. Excited for day 3, we head off to Mount Rushmore.

Let Go Of Self Doubt

Today’s #motivationmonday quote maybe alittle late but I think we all can relate to this in some small (or large) way. Maybe you are going after a new goal or have hit a plateau in a current goal. Maybe there is a goal you have been meaning to start working towards. What if we let go of self-doubt and self-judgement? What if we could express gratitude for the desire to get started and keep going? How much more can we enjoy the journey and see the lessons we are learning along the way if we set down the shadow of self-doubt?

Choose Forgiveness

We are all flawed. We will make mistakes or respond to situations in a way that we wish we could change. The only way to grow is to let go, forgive yourself and learn the lessons. That is the path to love. When we love ourselves, we have more love to give to those we are blessed to share this life with.
