“There is no solemnity so deep, to a right-thinking creature, as that of dawn.. ——— John Ruskin I love the early morning but even more so in the summer. Its cool today and the only noises I can hear are the birds are chirping. My writing has been sparse and for that, I apologize, but I’m spending as much of my free time as possible with my boys, Darin and being active outdoors. Time is flying by and I can’t figure out if it’s just me or if everyone feels this way??? Summer is half over and I have loved nearly every second of it so far. Maybe it’s because the winter seemed extraordinarily long to me this year and now I’m appreciating every moment that much more.—- Everyday is a fresh start but today is also the beginning of a fresh week. Let’s recommit to living our best life today and making healthy choices that we can reap the benefit from immediately. Believe me, I know we are all busy, but force yourself to take some time out of the everyday routine of work, carpooling, commitments and details to do something for you. Move around. Take a walk or a bike ride. Breath the summer air, remembering that it won’t be here forever. Clear your mind of all the junk and get back in touch with what is important. We eat to live, not live to eat. Let’s start this week off right and move through it one step at a time. Whatever you are trying to accomplish, it can be done with focus. Stay in tune with what you really want and surround yourself with supportive people to keep you inspired. I will be leading all my regular ww meetings and I hope to see you there!
