So I've truly not known what to write in my blog post this week.
I'm at a loss for words....
Shocking I know ;)
But, I've got so many things floating in my head I don't even know where to start.
Where to begin?
Ginger.....she's had quite a rough couple of months. She's got the starts of dementia. Did you know that was even a thing? I sure didn't.
But, her panting....her pacing....her inability to get settled....it does make sense.
She's on some new meds which have truly helped her calm down a bit. That's helped her (and me!) get some much needed rest. She's my first geriatric doggie, so this is very tough for me to see her get older and more frail. But, she's my baby girl....and I'll do anything to help her life a good life during the time she has left.
So, I'm kinda not really good at deciding things....big, life altering decisions.
I postulate and postulate....ask everyone's opinions.....go back and forth....it's more than maddening.
It's so frustrating.
I've got a decision I'm wrestling with right now. I'm going back and forth. One side of the coin is safe. The other is a bit more of a risk....but a fun & exciting risk. One where I can be flexible, do my thang, and grow higher into the person I want to be.
Gee, as I'm writing this...guess it seems like the decision is obvious. To me at least.
Maybe I these waffles were created to celebrate my decisiveness.
Lastly, I'm a Barre3 instructor in training! I know I announced it on Instagram last week, but I'm so excited to achieve this milestone in my life. Two years ago, heck, even one year ago, I was so burned out, fatigued, and sick. Movement is a huge piece of my life....and to think I'd be living without it....well, it made me even sicker.
So I set a goal to get some strength back once I got really stable physically (so like just a few months ago)..... I began small....starting with 5 minutes every other day. Last week, I made it through a 45 minute barre3 class. And I'll be teaching 60 minute classes, once I'm certified. And now, I can't see my life without movement.
What a precious gift we're given to be in this body. To have this life. To be able to do what we love. To love the people in our lives. To make decisions based on where we are now....and not live in our past.
Isn't that worth celebrating?
I completely agree.
Let's have a plate of waffles shall we?
