plethora of hearts

There's a whole world of all things pretty, cute, seasonal, beautiful, crazy, whimsical, and every other adjective one can imagine right at our fingertips...thanks to Pinterest.  I put up the final touches to our classroom's Valentine's Day decor this morning.  They were two projects I saw on Pinterest that I thought I had enough time to complete before the 14th arrived.
I'm no Martha Stewart, but I think the first one turned out really cute...

Who knew using an iron to melt down crayon shavings in-between wax paper sheets could make such cute "stained glass" hearts!  It took longer to hang them than it did to make them. :)
Our other classroom window now displays three yarn hearts...

Cute and very easy...and, in my case, free!  I used some wire I found in the garage and yarn I have in my knitting stash.  The pink ones are Tim's favorites.
So, if I never get around to any other project I see on Pinterest, I can at least say I have benefited from the two I did take on for a Happy Valentine's Day.

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…
