Happy Birthday, Alex!

Alex is 8 today!  Birthdays are a big thing and need special attention (I think so, anyway).  And, for Alex, this year meant a long weekend of celebrating. 
Thursday evening, a visit from Uncle Eric and Aunt Maria and his baby cousin.  Then we had a great weekend with my family down for a visit from Indiana.  Then we went and spent the afternoon at Stone Mountain.  Later today he'll get to go golfing after school with Pawpaw.  He has his golf clothes all picked out and ready to go.  He loves golf!

This is us after we hiked to the top of Stone Mountain.
Love you, Alex!

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
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…
