warm wishes

Saying goodbye to a wonderful, funfilled summer was difficult for me.  I held onto summer until the very last wasn't that difficult with 90+ degrees registering on the thermometer.

Can't say I'm ready just yet, but I'm getting there.  Cheers! to more memories to be made!

They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
